Comment of the Week

Inspired by fellow baltimoresun.com blogger Peter Schmuck, who has a feature on his blog in which he acknowledges the top comment of the day, I will select the best Ring Posts comment of the week, beginning today and running every Monday. By the way, for those outside of Baltimore, yes, Peter Schmuck is his real name.

The first winner is Another Wrestling Mark, and let me tell you, he has set the bar high. On Saturday, he wrote the following in response to the entry "Thoughts on Bret Hart's possible WWE return":

Eck looking down on the world from his throne upon the Sun gave some small thought towards what he may do to bring light into the lives of the misguided marks looming about the invisible boundless wastelands of cyberspace.

His fingers flowed and words were set like the fires of Revolution red at sunrise into the minds of the like-minded and the opposition equally fierce.

And Eck laughed from high up, knowing that he could escape the Promethean chains should any dare to put him to trial. For there is no libel in opinion. No bias in objectivity. No fear from the wrath of Editor...

In all seriousness, would any of you stop watching if Bret returned?

Hypocrisy and wrestling go together hand in glove. Everything on TV is a work, so what's the point of losing sleep over it? (That is, if anyone actually is that upset about Montreal.)

Bret and Shawn were good wrestlers. To elevate them as anything more than that is to risk denying their humanity...and they have flaws like everyone else.

(...for what it's worth...Bret>HBK)

kev , you and pete have the best "sports" blogs in the Sun !

RESPONSE FROM KE: In that order, of course.

Funaki- "INDEED!"

Fire Trembley... Oh wait, wrong blog.

The aspiring English teacher in me hopes that this encourages a little more attention grammar and punctuation. I'm no grammar Nazi, and most of the posts here are pretty well written (especially compared to most of the IWC), but I got a headache trying to decipher some posts last week. I think you even responded in confusion to one of them, Kev.

idk wha u r talkin about j nubs :(

Sorry for the late response, but thanks for the enthusiasm shown to my post. Complements like that go a long way.

I used to be a very hardcore William Blake fan, so I think that came through a bit with the opening story.

The user comments are interesting since I actually taught English for a little while and may return to it. Best of luck to J Newbs and anyone else interested in becoming a teacher.
