THN's Great Bar Debates

Have you ever debated a seriously philosophical question in a bar, and then -- the next morning -- wondered what the heck all of the fuss was about when you, ah, had some time to think about it?

Who hasn’t, right? Budweiser (or maybe it was Coors) made a series of commercials like this posing questions like, Mary Ann or Ginger?

The Hater Nation isn’t above stealing a good idea and The Big Picture isn't either. Last week, voters couldn't decide if they would rather wear Steve Bisheff's toupee or some kid's soiled Brett Favre jersey. But we have a new question for you.

The Utah Jazz have finally become relevant again. After disappearing for a number of years, they are finally back in the playoffs. (Or at least it seems that way.) After Wednesday night's great non-call on Pao Gasol, the Jazz fans are in complete whine mode, like they just found out that 7-up has had caffeine all of these years. Even Jerry Sloan isn't above complaining about bad calls, although opposing teams at the Delta Center (or whatever it's called now) have often played 8-on-5 basketball.

With that in mind, here is this week's question (as suggest by reader MP -- unless he gave this idea to Awful Announcing).

Who has sports most annoying white fans?
New York
Other free polls

gotta be boston, right? they bitch and whine and still have super bowl rings, world series rings and bad accents.

It has to be New York. Only Rangers fans would edit the words to the song Camptown Races to illustrate how much they hate the Islanders. It went something like this...

Potvin likes it in the a**, do-dah do-dah

And that's how Bossy hurt his back, do-dee-do-da-day!

Denis Povtin and Mike Bossy have both been retired for nearly twenty years and I swear I can still hear them sing this song during MSG broadcasts.

You gotta give it to JazzFan. Anyone watching the Lakers/Jazz game tonight will be treated to as good an example of the Hive Mentality as your likely to see outside a Hamas meeting or a Sendera Luminosa training camp. 20 years of being the Lakers' smaller, weaker cellmate combined with theocratic tendencies that would be more at home in an Afghanistan cave than the American Southwest have rendered these people incapable of rational thought.

BTW, my verification word is "mphyhus" which, history buffs know, is what the original Mormon settlers would yell when they dressed up like Native Americans and attacked the wagon trains of non-Mormons passing through Utah. (Go ahead Google. I'll wait.)

Boston, because of their douchiness, followed closely by "Other" (Pac-10 football fans). As much as I want to rank you guys ahead of Boston fans, I... I just can't.
