As I've studied different throwdowns lately, I've found that there are moderately consistent categories that everyone fits in, and that every throwdowner fits into one of them, and usually into that one only. I found this pretty amusing, so I decided to tell the world about it. There are four categories that everyone who participates in throwdowns should fit into. See which one you're in!
- Brainiacs- These are the people that are not out to try and make people feel stupid, but end up doing so anyway. They usually use lots of stats in their throwdowns, and their arguments are usually at least twice as long as their opponents. They aren't trying to show off, but their throwdowns are very impressive, and these seem to be the ones with the best records, as it turns out. Example: AdamLee
- Predators- These guys know what they're talking about, and are very good at throwdowns, but usually aren't the ones who start throwdowns. They may start a couple, but they are usually looking for other people's throwdowns that they can take and argue with. They are usually focused more on why the other guy is wrong than why they are right. They too have respectable records. Example: Chris Cole
- Shorties- We've all faced one of these before. They have short, sweet, and to the point answers with little or no stats or numbers. They give their opinion on a subject in a sentence or two, and actually win some throwdowns because people agree with what they're arguing, but usually have losing records, anyway. Example: The Lefty05
- Air-Heads- My favorite. The guys who are always accepting throwdowns or making crazy ones and trying to argue absolutely hopeless points. The guys who steal all of the throwdowns the rest of us want because they're easy wins, but then they get it and actually end up losing because they have no idea how to argue their point. They usually have drastically losing records. Example: Bryce24
I'm sorry if I offended anyone with this blog, but these are my observations that I find to be consistent. Feel free to comment and tell me where you fit in or what you think about this.
