The votes have come and thank you for your votes on the Meme/GIF of 2012. The votes were publicly viewable, and it was quite evident that there was a decisive winner:
Minnesota Lynx guard Lindsay Whalen's one hand just proved to be unstoppable as she Whalendozed the competition, earning 18 of 47 votes.
I shudder to think what the proportion of votes would be if she had two healthy hands...
In a solid second place finish, Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve and her temper tantrum jacket dance won 11 votes.
Last but not least, in third place with 5 votes, Mercury HC/GM Corey Gaines rubs it in. I'm just posting the first meme for my sanity:
(listening to Gimme More as I type this.... was I thinking out loud?)
Well, like the Washington Mystics' draft lottery position, our friend and special correspondent, Mr. Y U No Guy ended up in 4th place though he was our presumptive favorite.
I think he'll be okay though he was mad at me after Christmas time. Since he's our watchdog correspondent who will call out the injustices that go around in the WNBA and even other issues, maybe a wider variety of topics aside from focusing on one team will help earn him some more love in the long term.
In the meantime, let's all give congratulations to the Minnesota Lynx which won each of the top two spots on this poll for memes that lasted well beyond just the time when they were posted in an open thread or in another discussion.
Most importantly, it's you guys who help make this site more vibrant and engaging, so if you have something to say or something to post, please do! I'm sure that the folks here won't bite you if you're a newbie, not even Mr. Y U No Guy. :)
