    Metaphorically speaking...

    Which are we?

    Dyson - We suck, but at least we look good doing it.

    Hoover - We suck and it's ugly, but we try hard.

    Swiffer - We don't suck, but we're definitely not great. We see our problems and we know they're there, but they always seem to be just out of our reach.

    Mop - We don't suck. We're sloppy but effective at first, and sloppy and ineffective later on as we exhaust our supply of fresh water.

    Broom - We don't suck. We get the big stuff but we miss a lot of the finer things which prevents us from achieving our goals.

    What a silly poll. This team is clearly a dustbuster.

    If I could vote a combo it would be the illustrious Hoover Swiffer mop.

    Re: Metaphorically speaking...

    I clicked on this thread ready to explain the difference between "metaphorically" and "hypothetically." To my shock, you really meant "metaphorically."

    Re: Metaphorically speaking...

    Metaphorically speaking, we're actually kinda like the kid who broke his arm but it will heal weird and let him throw a wicked fastball and make him lots of money as a major league pitcher, assuming people still pay to go to baseball games, but thats another story entirely. Right now we're in the recovery phase from breaking the arm, stuck in the hospital and taking those pain pills (or clone cones, or minnow farmers) to get by. We know that we'll be good, and we're showing all the signs of getting better, but until the arm heals, it'll be rough. The doctors say that in about a year, though, of physical therapy and exercises along with plenty of practice, the scouts will come knocking.

    Re: Metaphorically speaking...

    If there was a thread that screamed for the OP to slap himself until I got tired of it, this is it.

    Way to go. Plenty of win in this idea.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
