GGN Thread About Nothing #100 your song

wow #100.



The first TAN was posted over 2 years ago, on feburary 14th 2012. I was bothering Bro (he's called something else now, i think) about having a thread on the site like they had on BattleRedBlog and other sites. I think i erased the first of this type of thread for reasons i don't remember, probably was dabu's fault.

The name was suggested i believe by dvdvil

The Thread About Nothing

Bro Namath: What is this thread about?
rexthejet: Absolutely nothing. What did you do today?
Bro Namath: I got up and came to work.
rexthejet: There’s a thread. That’s a thread.
dabu7: It’s a thread about nothing.
Bro Namath: Well, why am I reading it?
rexthejet: Because it’s on GGN.

John B: Not yet.

CervezaVerde: These pretzels are making me thirsty.

and the HOLMES of the… JETS!!!

The thread started off pretty slowly. The first Tan consisted mainly of talf of cockaroaches and Jermey Lin. we didn't really think it was going to run


i guess this was a failure…

Well its also a deadzone for football in general.

And it can’t just be instantly successful in a deadzone such as this. No need for the concept to die but perhaps it wasn’t birthed at the right time.

do it only once a week rather than every few days and come up w/ some actual topics to discuss rather than hope that someone else will……

then we got some encouragement

Don't give up!

It took us a while to get ours going regularly in the beginning. It was just a random occurrence at first before it became a regular thing. Also, you may have picked a bad time of the year to start it. I think ours really started taking off when the Colts were poised to make their SB run a few years ago and there were a lot of people around just wanting to engage in some off-topic chatter. Maybe the upcoming draft will provide some general conversation as we get closer to the time. Keep it up, though. This thread still has more comments than any other fanpost that’s up right now. You can’t expect to start off getting hundreds of comments a day until it has a chance to catch on a bit more.

If the jets couldn't peat the pats, at least we could in our own random discussion thread! Or something...

Dabu did the next one, because for some reason we couldn't find anyone else when i was on vacation. We learn't about Bro's/Jeff's/whatever his name is criteria:

My criteria

1a.Anatomically correct.
2.Not domineering.
2a.Tolerant of a person who doesn’t drink gamble or cheat but smoke copious amounts of pot everyday.
3.Not a hipster.
4.Doesn’t talk with inflection in voice of confused/drunk 17 year old SoCal girl.

Laughing at my dumb jokes is negotiable. #’s 2-4 are negotiable too.

and we got labled as this:

from battleredblogs eternal thread

(NEW!) GGN’s Thread About Nothing at Gang Green Nation: Newest to the club and in need of a little help getting their threads started, this is a mostly all Jets fan thread started by rexthejet, but they are super-friendly and will accept pretty much anyone with a pulse. So, if you are looking for some Seinfeld gifs and the highest concentration of single Jewish guys on the interwebz stop by and give them a shout.

well yes, i suppose i am a (rather charming) single male jewish member of the interwebz. i could use myself a nice jewish female though as it so happens to be…….

dabu wasn't married at this point either, wow this feel's like a while ago.

The next thread was kind of sad, but we became official or something

I want to give rtj a shout out for creating this thread. I had wanted one of these here forever, but he finally took the bull by the horns and made it happen.

by John B on Mar 10, 2012 | 7:47 PM unrec (2) actions The thing finally took of around #10, and completely exploded at #11. We somehow atracted bronco fans that started making posts on our sites. The colt fans left, more bronco fans came, an irish guy did #17, Green Beer/CeverzeVerde left (or did he?).We had good songs being the tittle of the thread. Other things got started. I left. Dabu took over. Then something happened. Then Bro somehow took it. Then i came back. The craziet username ever to post a TAN.Then something almost happened. We were taken over by cats, dabu got married, i came back again, every old mod besides me became a writer (woah i said that out loud?), and did i miss anything else? Definitely talk about them below if you want, you don't have to. Honestly, i didn't think we'd reach 100. It seems like such a long time ago. But seriously, i want to thank everyone for commenting during the last couple of years, obviously the thread wouldn't run with out you guys. Most of us come to sites like these, do to an obsession or something or something very close to that with sports. It's nice to talk about other things once or in this case many, many whiles. Here's to another 100. Pox4epi_medium
