back in 1936, baseball inducted the first five members into the hall of fame. due to the many years of baseball before the first induction, the original class remains the strongest in history with the likes of Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson and Walter Johnson. now a sherdog OT can't just be about greatness. we have tons of "who's the best" threads. this is more about impact, positive or otherwise. that said, here's my original five (ok, four). 1) hojak-- he built the fuckin' place with his bare hands and any time he shows up and makes even the most harmless of statements, a five page brouhaha is inevitable. that's heft. 2) bruce lovely--funniest poster ever. 3) shootoking--the postcount, tridux, the Tapout pic, king's paradise. i could go on and on. sure the guy's a tool, but he's a damn legend, 4) Meat Fist--formerly great poster who's been slowed down by administrative duties. combined with his drunken account, he's amongst the best and most prolific posters ever. his service to the site, the modship and admin positions, combined with his efforts to rid this site of the hojak administration, secures this spot. 5) i'm stumped. lots of worthy candidates but i'm having trouble narrowing it down. when i see other lists i'm sure i'll be able to pick a fifth.
