In case you missed it, the internet reached it’s optimal level of awesomeness on November 16, 2013. Any website with even the tiniest scrap of integrity should have shuttered its windows and closed up shop because nary a one of us will ever do anything that will even dream of approaching the amazingness of what…

There’s lots to love about the holiday season. Each year, it gives us multiple excuses to gather with friends and family, eat delicious food, remember happy holidays past, and listen to songs about date rape. Er . . . well, not so much to love about that last one, I suppose. For many of us,…

The above photo is what comes up when you Google Image search “Don LaFontaine Santa Claus.” I was hoping that someone had taken a photo of our illustrious awards’ namesake in a HoHo suit. But, alas, no such luck. On the bright side, though, if you’re in the LaFontaine, Michigan area December 12th-19thish, make sure…

Despite what your experiences may have taught you, holidays aren’t merely occasions to eat enough food and/or candy to put your body into a recuperative coma. They also aren’t there just so Aunt Bessie can drink enough chardonnay to feel comfortable airing all of her grievances regarding Uncle Cooter and that harlot who works at…

Well, that happened. And it wasn’t so bad. There was the scrappy comeback bid, James Young’s I-can-still-score first half, Alex Poythress’s hustle (hustle!), and Julius Randle’s this-is-why-my-name-rhymes-with-manhandle second half.

Way back in my very first post for Funkhouser, I floated the idea of a semi-regular feature I tentatively dubbed the Don LaFontaine Awards.
