Mark Zuckerberg recently won TIME Magazine’s Person of the year (used to be man of the year, they changed it just in case a woman ever makes the final). In case you didn’t know, he’s the guy that came up with Facebook. (What a wanker! Who uses that…?) Person of the Year may sound like a pretty good one to win, although temper that with the knowledge that in 1936 a dude called Adolf Hitler won it and another top bloke, Josef Stalin, won it in 39 and 42. (Nice work, Time Magazine).
Anyway, it is without further ado that I can proudly announce SE.com’s Man of the Year, Chris Davidson. Sure, Kelly won a tenth ASP World Title this year, whilst Davo didnt even win an event, but whatever. Davo is awesome. His tatts are way more convincing than Bobby’s, he’s been championing the drinking of lager way before Dane got all cute with Budvar, he’s got crap sponsors and is pretty old, yet has somehow rocketed from weird WQS nobody that won’t go away to number bloody =14th in the fricken world! His voice is really gravelly, he does all sorts of stuff a professional ‘athlete’ probably shouldn’t, he doesnt really do Modern Collective air shit but who cares? He’s basically just fucken cool. He even facebooked Kelly before a heat with him in Portugal and said, “You’re dead Jimmy!” and then lost. Yeah Davo! Man of the Year! (unfortunately, there’re only 3 days left this year, so make the most of it…)
Here he is losing to Kelly in the Semis at Supertubos in October. (Sorry about the music.)
