The week of X-Games has arrived, which means for a brief moment, the mainstream and the core BROs mesh together in a horrible amalgamation that probably would make God cry. And of course, Best Whip is again a 100% fan-judged event. I feel like some big executive came up with that idea and everyone was just too afraid to tell him that it wasn’t good, like that old story “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. It’s going to take some innocent, young child to walk up to that guy and say “Listen, that is the dumbest fucking idea that ESPN has ever had and you guys have aired the National Spelling Bee Championships, just to give you some perspective.”
I can say with confidence that McNeil will have the best whips, but he won’t win. It just cannot happen. Tina Textalot has never heard of him, so he’s cooked. I’m here to say that ESPN should privately judge this shit. Tell the fans that their vote matters, then just bullshit the numbers so the right guy should win. Best of both worlds, really; you get the idiot fans feeling like they matter, and you cut out the fame factor, because being famous literally has no bearing on how good your whip is. Justin Bieber can’t whip for shit, belie’ dat.
