    Best of Best of the Decade Lists

    Separating this from the what have you accomplished this decade thread. I enjoyed a scroll down memory lane with the 50 Best Comedy Sketches of the Decade from Vulture.

    Some good laughs in there, enjoy!

    Adding to my street cred(and inability to reference a certain Steve Carrell film), I will confess to having seen none of these. But then my memories of sketch comedy ends with Christopher Walken.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    The Continental was some solid work though.


    I was surprised by how many of these I had not seen.

    This article from huffpost looks into the animals that rose to fame in the last decade like Grumpy Cat and asks the question: Where are they now? The answer: dead, mostly.

    Monty Python would approve...

    At least in the case of Grumpy Cat, her humans made millions...

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    Her real name was Tardar Sauce...somehow that's more appropriate.

    Here's Yahoo with the 10 biggest sports choke jobs of the last decade. An ACC team gets a shout out at number 3...no surprise.

    I'd characterize that more as a blow-out upset, not so much a choke job. I think of choke jobs as giving up big leads. UVA's biggest lead appears to have been 6 in the first half. Not sure anyone's primary reaction about that 20 point loss was, wow, they choked away that 6 point first half lead!

    Yahoo's criteria goes beyond giving up big leads, so improbability can get you there - thus the UVA - UMBC game, the USMNT, etc. I get it. You can say you were so heavily favored, losing itself is choking. Fine. But IMO it's not so dramatic if you never had the game in hand.

    The Falcons loss at #1 - now that was a dramatic choke.
