Visiting the comments section for ESPN.com articles is generally a masochistic practice that offers very little reward for readers. While not quite as bad as YouTube commenters, ESPN commenters are pretty poor. However, on Sunday, the cosmic forces aligned and led the ESPN.com community to create a pretty funny meme.
Much like last year’s ESPN commenter meme against Tim Tebow, this one involved commenters writing things that are greater than Mark Sanchez. The comments were added to an article about Fireman Ed saying he’s resigning from his superfan post. This was likely chosen as the place for the meme because Ed says his support of Sanchez over Tebow led to confrontations with Jets fans.
Take a look below and you’ll get an idea of how the comments went. Some of them were actually pretty funny.
Keeping in tune with what Tommy Craggs at Deadspin said, seeing ESPN commenters going to town on Sanchez is like watching a dog walk on hind legs … again.
