Griffining may be losing steam, but it sure was a good run while it lasted. The following remarks taken from Deadspin make me proud to have been a part of it:
Griffining is stupid, and you should hate yourself if you find it amusing. (Unlike Tebowing, which somehow circled from clever to dumb and back to clever.) Yet SportsCenter devoted two separate segments to this “phenomenon,” totaling 3.25 minutes, topped off by Stuart Scott giving us a handy demonstration on how to Griffin. Even worse, they couldn’t help but include a few handy Tebowing references for good measure. SportsCenter is dead and we are all dead and this is some kind of horrible purgatory where we are paying the price for our sins.
Deadspin writers are mostly a-holes, so I got a real kick out of annoying this guy. The same article also mentions the hilarious fact that SportsCenter spent more air time last week on Griffining than on the NHL lockout!
I heart Griffining. Big thanks to all of you that helped take it national.
