Hate to ask a question that probably has, for most, an obvious answer. Further, I hate to ask this particular question after reading posts on this board a couple of years or so, but WTF does maximum grilled mean? Does the phrase have deep seeded Steeler meaning?

Thanks in advance.

It isn't an inside Steelers meaning, but it is an inside joke.

Many a year ago, the last time we had a Clinton in office, a certain Mr. Fnngnswk placed highly in the Maxim magazine pick'em football league.  As a prize, he won a $100 puffy grill.

At the same time, the same finny was battling a gopher in his proto-sustainable foods garden (once a hippie, always a hippie, I say).  Apparently the little bastard was getting at the beetroot, and goddamn it if Mrs. Finny don't love her some beetroot.  Big fan of it, by all accounts.

Long story short, gopher ends up dead, the prize grill arrives, and wahla!  Dinner is served.  Grilled gopher for two.  Maxim-um style.

Then the espn boards started sucking the dual exhaust and this site was created.  The tragedy of the story?  That year would mark fnngnswk's final success in the fantasy football world.

Or at least that's how I remember it happening.

That's not the real story. For anyone linking with any interest, Penso is a bullshitter.

Do I know the real derivation? Of course.

Will I ever tell? No way. Not without jonzr's permission.

That's nothing that doesnt need to be said already.

Thee greatest league ever created. If I had the geek squad expertise I'd format the same parameters and sell it to thee highest bidding website. That format was fucking phenomenal.

That secret died on a lonely stretch of road, with Mrs. Bud Tarken.

Maximum grilled ain't no joke.  It's a philosophy.

In football, you're either the hammer or the nail, the Cowher or the Crybaby Holmgren.  The loser is roadkill; the winner fires up the grill.  It's simple.

This duality applies to the message board as well.  Either run with the swift or get the fuck out the way.  *And if you ever fuck up, your buds on the board will be the ones firing up the grill.  There's none of this namby-pamby bullshit that makes other message boards inexcusably lame.  We're here to skewer fellow posters, and we expect the same.  

I believe the actual genesis of the maximum grilled phrase involved an unfortunate incident at an ESPN shindig involving John Clayton, a bunch of drunked up co-workers, and a few gallons of teriyaki sauce.  Dude's hair never did quite grow back right.





*It's a lovely system.  Really, it is.

Where did "87%" come from?

Nugent's wife's name is "Shemane"?  That's gotta be a post-op name change.

[edit:  It might also be the medical term for the female assbeard.]
