around the hOOrn returns?

Well, the answer depends on you!

I want to bring ATH back, but first need to make sure others will participate. So respond and let us know, okay?

The first order of business would be a "Tournament of Champions" of sorts...

In it's last incarnation, ATH lasted 10 weeks, and these were the winers:
Week 1 -- borntorun
Week 2 -- bigfatgoalie
Week 3 -- bigfatgoalie
Week 4 -- DevoniusMaximus
Week 5 -- metallikid
Week 6 -- bigfatgoalie
Week 7 -- metallikid
Week 8 -- Seph
Week 9 -- metallikid
Week 10 -- George Banks

So the tournament of champions would work like this:
Round 1 -- borntorun vs. DevoniusMaximus vs. Seph vs. George Banks
Round 2 -- The top two posters join our three time winners, bigfatgoalie and metallikid
Round 3 -- wittle the field down to 2
Round 4 -- a champion of champions is crowned

I'm not sure what the prize would be, hopefully the Mods have a suggestion (custom status, soemthing cooler, I have no idea).

If I get enough replies, we'll resurrect this one...

EDIT -- for those who may be wondering, the game is just like the ESPN show that stole the name from us (HA!), with the following round structure:

Round 1 -- Posted: Sunday afternoon, 24-hour deadline
500 words max, one response per contestant
4 winners advance

Round 2 -- Posted: Monday afternoon, 24-hour deadline, gimmicky round
750 words max, one response per contestant
3 winners advance

Round 3 -- Posted: Tuesday afternoon, 24-hour deadline, gimmicky round
No word max, unlimited responses, discussion oriented
2 winners advance

Round 4 -- Posted: Wednesday afternoon, 24-hour deadline, open round
No word max, unlimited responses, discussion oriented
1 winner crowned

FYI -- There were also penalties for non-contestants posting.

Hehe, tournament of champions eh?

I'm interested in seeing the return of ATH, at least.

I think I lost in the final round a few times, I am like the Bill Plashke (sp?) of this show. I'll give it another shot though after the champions (jerks!) are done.





My personal fuck-off list: 1. Tony Romo 2. Eli Manning 3. The New York Yankees 4. LeBron James 5. Kobe Bryant 6. SEC Fans 7. The SEC 8. the Political Right 9. religion 10. Almost everything the WWE does

Ahem. If you were doing a tournament of champions, I'm afraid that as a two time winner of the ORIGINAL contests, I'd have to demand entry. Players got to represent.

I don't have a list of original winners, but I'm sure anyone posting their victories can be verified...somehow.

The more, the merrier!

Since I never played, I can't be in the tournament of champions, but if it opens to the rest of us, I'm in!

Jeez, I never come into forum. Sorry I didn't see this for three weeks.

Anyway, from what I remember, Markout, Madiq, and BFG were the most common winners of the original AtH. I'm actually not sure if anyone else even won.

Also, I'm in. I only participated in one of these things, so I'm 1/1. And as the originator, I'm a legend. Who's gonna be the legend killah?

Now that I have a working computer I would be up for playing. Best of all I'd get a chance to bust my Woody avatar back out

Also if you wanted to do the Tournament of Champions you could have BTR and I face off for a spot in the finals as I don't think the other two ever post here
