Many did not vote in the award thing so it doesn't tell everything :)
I know many that didn't want to be involved in it for various reasons.
Many did, how do I know? I hosted the awards and counted up the awards, so nobody knows better than me. And I will go with that, if that's OK. You can go with whatever you want. After all, we respect each other's opinions. :)

Yes, there will be.

The Rafa Nadal Most Humble Poster on TTW - It will be a category this year when voting opens on the week of the WTF. :)

Not sure about most Self Loating Poster on TTW, that seems a little too negative.
LOL love that it’s named after Nadal. :p

Hopefully he can make a special appearance to give the award out himself.

I am going to try to make the awards really special this time, I am using movie maker, to make the presentations, and there will be a You Tube Channel dedicated to it. :)
Wow man. That’s great! Looking forward to it. :cool:

Sysyphus is the funny cream.

Ric Flair.
I love Sysys vernacular

We have a chat outside this forum having @Red Rick not censored in full flow.
It's extremely funny.
Nothing like it
Now I just feel too much pressure to react funny

Is there an award for “most humble poster” @Hitman :D

Not sure who would win that. Maybe @Red Rick? Although he’s more self-loathing than humble..:p
Outside of a religious context, humility is defined as being "unselved", a liberation from consciousness of self, a form of temperance that is neither having pride (or haughtiness) nor indulging in self-deprecation.
According to wikipedia's definition of humility, I am probably the least humble poaster on TTW. Hard to hate yourself if you don't hold yourself to a ridiculous standard

It's up to you, although I have to admit I'm not too sure what it says about me that I spark debate about an award for self-loathing on an internet forum

It's somewhere inbetween

Honestly I worry about @paranoidandroid because he knows how I feel all the time
 
Sorry but that would be Muhammad Ali.
Cassius Clay declared himself the greatest before he even won a world title. He had the gift of the gab so his self-promotion worked but in reality, was he the greatest boxer ever? Granted, he made boxing reach people who would never have been interested in it. Tell me why you believe Ali came anywhere close to being the greatest competitor in all sport.

This pretty much sums up my thoughts on Ali. From B/R:

  1. Ali's intensity came through in countless ways. It showed itself in his performances, in his interviews and in his adherence to his beliefs.

    He rose to prominence in a time where it was dangerous for an African-American to be loud and intimidating. In interviews, Ali was just that.

    When asked to go to Vietnam, Ali refused to participate in something he did not believe in and chose to go to jail instead.

    He then had the intensity and heart to will himself back to win the world heavyweight title even when he was overmatched. Ali could take a punch as well as he could give them.

    He fought ten rounds against Ken Norton with a broken jaw. He later went on to beat George Foreman after he successfully employed a strategy that involved Foreman wearing himself out by throwing punches while Ali covered and leaned against the ropes.

    Ali's intensity may have been on greatest display when he fought Ernie Terrel. Terrel refused to call Ali by his new Muslim name. Ali told anyone who would listen that he was going to humiliate Terrel, and that is exactly what he did.

    Between each big shot, Ali taunted Terrel with the question, "What's my name?"

Nadal is one of the greatest competitors in sport but there’s levels here.

Ali transcended sport. He didn’t just fight in the ring but also outside of it and he overcame each obstacle.

All of the above is true, but that hardly makes him the greatest competitor of all time.

I'm actually from Mississauga so yeah technically you can say I'm from Toronto. Pretty much, whenever a non-Canadian asks where I'm from, I usually say Toronto, or sometimes even simpler, I say I'm from Canada. But whenever a Canadian asks where I'm from I say Mississauga cuz I feel like Mississauga is a place that only Canadians know of LOL

I've always wanted to travel out east to the maritimes. Seems like a great relaxing place, especially during the summer time. I know the seafood/lobster there is amazing
LOL, yeah I know the general location of Mississauga, and also how it feels to have to explain to someone where you're from.

And funny enough, tourists have probably tried more seafood than I have. It's one of those things where you take what you have for granted when you live here which I know I shouldn't, but I feel like that sometimes. Fish and chips (french fries not potato chips) is a favourite here. My aunt and uncle are in from Winnipeg (he used to live here) now and they brought another couple with them and went to a bunch of places for fish and chips. Usually it's caught right out of whatever body of water is closest and smothered in dressing and gravy. :D It's not healthy food, so naturally everybody likes it.
