It's probably bad form to run a contest and win it yourself. Maybe I just took the obvious pick by going first in the "what song is most owned by CHers?" thread. But it was a fairly easy win for Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

Thank you to all who took the poll -- 101 people answered, so it should be a decent sampling of our basketball community.

I think anyone who submitted a song that did 50% or better (11 of the nominees) deserves something for his perspipacity, so by the power vested in me by the State of Kansas I hereby award each of you a ThD - Doctor of Thinkology. You know who you are.

UPDATE: I was so busy I had to miss the Ricky Rubio Show against SAS tonight, but finally I am free. So let me recognize some of our musical eminences. In order of the success of the song they picked, they are:

"Smells Like Teen Spirit," one of the landmark songs in rock history, still packs a punch to this day, so I am happy to see it prevail. And perhaps it's fitting for our CH community that the song includes the line "Our little group has always been and always will until the end."
