Uncommon Open Thread of 2008

The unscripted drama experienced during a live sporting event is chronicled for the world to see in an Open Thread. In our first year, we came close to doing just that. You know what they say, "Close only counts in horse shoes, hand grenades, and Open Threads."

There was no elimination criteria this year because there were only eight open threads all year. Some threads are longer than others, but each thread can be appreciated on its own merit.

We might have a tiny readership and only eight open threads all year, but we are like Jamestown; In our first year we've withstood attacks from the natives, disease, and starvation. Next year, we look forward to even more starvation. It's hard work starting a colony.
