Lookout Landing calls USSM readers lazy nogoodniks, retaliation made easy
So in Dylan’s Seattle blogger poll, it’s down to us and our fine neighbors at Lookout Landing in the “Final“. Now, I only really got interested when a victory over the West Seattle Blog meant it’d be us and LL. But now it is, and since Jeff’s campaigning, I offer to you the U.S.S. Mariner Voter’s Guide on Important Issues of the Day.

And, because Jeff Sullivan said that USSM Readers are lazy nogoodniks, I provide for your voting convenience:
Unlike the West Seattle Blog writers, I promise not to come up with a list of excuses for why Lookout Landing should beat us (say, because they’re a massively well-funded part of a giant blog machine, while we’re just some dudes and a server in a room at digital.forest). I’d be happy to lose to them.
Red hot update: in attempting to rally the other members of their hive organism to their defense, admits that Lookout Landing was responsible for last season’s trades with the Indians and demands repayment of the favor. Good on them for taking credit, but I don’t see how this can help win the votes of Mariner fans.
In a Battle Royale of extreme proportions, Seattle Metroblogging Blarch Badness final, your SportsBlog Nation neighbor LookoutLanding is up against USSM, in a battle of best blog in Seattle.
Hey, we gave you Choo. And A-Cab. Yeah, do we still have Perez? Nope. How ’bout Broussard? Not for long.
Go out and give LookoutLanding your vote.
Even worse, they’re now claiming responsibility for Seahawk losses and demanding repayment of those favors! Oh, the carnage!
Shocking revelations today.
Even red-hotter update: Did you enjoy seeing the M’s lose to the A’s over and over? Lookout Landing claims responsibility for that, too!
