    2008: The Year in Bullshido - Awards!

    One hell of a year, eh?

    Not really? What's your problem, mang?

    Ok, so 2008 wasn't the greatest year in Martial Arts history. Several up-and-coming MMA organizations folded, reality show dramamanwhoring (just made that word up, thank you very much) gave the general public the impression that fighters are a bunch of violent crybabies, and overweight LARPer Walter Mittys like Phil Elmore still abound.

    So what's a No BS Martial Artist to do?

    Well, what we do best, of course: shine the light of scorn, derision, and shame upon those whose actions bring the same upon 4387<sup>1</sup> years of warrior tradition. And by "warrior tradition" we don't mean playing dress up in feudal Asian haberdashery and doing the Poomse Macarena. We're talking about people who dedicated their lives to kicking ass, of the tangible variety.

    With that in mind, we're announcing the revival of the

    Bullshido Awards

    The categories for 2008 are as follows:

    Badass of the Year: For being a badass. You're so badass you probably memorized this description before you even read it. You make Chuck Norris jokes look like actual bullet points on your resume. We don't just want to honor you, we want to be you. Please send us autographed pictures, seriously.

    Douchebag of the Year
    : For exemplary service in the fight against credible Martial Arts, fighters, or practitioners. This individual's actions bring great shame upon him/her/themselves, the Martial Arts, and Humanity in General. Please get hit by a pickup truck covered in AIDS.Worst Fight of the Year: Hmm, I wonder who's going to win this one? Kicking Ass Less In Battle is a sin which should not go unrecognized. So we're dedicating this award to you. You proabably already know who you are, but if you don't, you soon will.

    Forum Bully of the Year:You're the wind beneath our forum's wings. Not that we've got wings, because those would look pretty goddamn stupid on a bull, but you get the point. It's a crappy Bette Midler song, what do you expect. You rock, and by example, encourage others to rock just as hard.

    Best Fight of the Year: You, however, did kick a plethora of ass and for this we salute you.

    Throwdown of the Year: You posted, you came, you saw, you got flying teabagged by a 15 year old with a parental waiver. Throwdowns are the foundation for this site's work ethic, and separate the fighters from the LARPers. This award will be given to the best one held in 2008.

    All awards will be nominated and voted on by our esteemed pannel of representatives (otherwise known as our Supporting Members).

      Badass: Clearly, that nine-year-old who choked the pitbull.

      Douchebag: Kimbo Slice.

      Forum Bully: Lebell.

      Best Fight: Jackson vs Silva/UFC 92.

      Throwdown of the Year: No idea, really. Me against two of my cousins in a backyard somewhere in beautiful in Spain.

        Badass: The 30 or so Marines who routed an entire town full of Taliban AFTER being ambushed by 250 enemies. Total number of friendly casualties: 0.

        Douchebag: EliteXC. Because fixed fights, circus-style presentation, and some of the weakest fighters in pro fighting should not be the prime-time network debut of MMA.

        Forum Bully: The Bullshido Lawyers. For keeping this place up and all of us out of jail.

        Best Fight: Me versus my weight.

        Throwdown of the year: The New York Mega. Great time was had. I threw Omega. Sort of. OK not really.
        And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

          I nominate DDLR for forum bully of the year. He has the highest rate of useful information per post of anyone on Bullshido.
          The fool thinks himself immortal,
          If he hold back from battle;
          But old age will grant him no truce,
          Even if spears spare him.

            Hey, know it's a bit of an ask....

            Would it also be possible to see a sub-catigory (or two) for douchbag of the year?

            Specifically for authors of books filled with piss-poor info on how to maim an attacker with a flashlight and a hard stare (the Elmore literacy award maybe).

            And a section for really REALLY bady done instructional DVDs, showing more MA nonsense than should be possible to bung into a 2 hour instructional video (Maybe the Van Damme movie award - one because he's done quite a few ropey MA films and secondly the abbrevitation would be VD, which is also a known anacroynim for Venerial Disease; which is quite childish, but still makes me smile).

            So many nominees for this, so little time.
