Please use this thread to nominate your choice for thread of the year and please post a link to that thread. A few words why you believe it to be the thread of the year would go a long way in the decision making process. After we have collected some of this year's absolute best threads, Celticsblog will put it to a vote and the membership will choose their selection for 2008-09 Thread of the Year which will receive it's own special place in the Celticsblog Hall of Fame.

Please limit choices from threads that were started on or after Opening Day 2008.

I have two nominations and will briefly explain why.  The are both non-celtic related, sadly.  Maybe we could divide up this award to include celtic related and non?

"Conflict in Israel: What's your take? "
Very short thread, but I found it very informative with a lot of different opinions and people kept it pretty respectful, while it could touched a sensative subject.  My best friend is Palestinian and my girlfriend is Jewish, so I heard very much one-sided arguments of this conflict often and it was great and incredibly informative to read this.  I did not post at all, but followed it closely.

"Obama's stimulus package"
Lots of interesting ideas in here (from the democrats at least  ;)) and I posted a few times myself.  I also followed this thread closely.

These 2 threads I can actually still remember reading today and they both were from around January or February when hot issues.

Just to let you know DL the CB HOF will not be forgetting years 2004-2008. This is just the starting point and my guess is that Jsaad's love life, the deli guy, Roy's Salary Cap FAQ threads, 100 Tommy Points and We Have a New Star threads will not be forgotten.

Some of the game threads were pretty classic.  Probably Game 6 against Chicago, although that didn't end the way we would have liked it to.  Game 7 against the Bulls and Game 5 against the Magic were good threads, too.

"Praise the Squirrel" and "Insult the Squirrel" were pretty random, but funny, threads.

The "Roy Hobbs Facts Thread" was memorable, on a personal basis. ;)

Something to do with the CB draft, maybe, as I think that's our longest thread ever.

Without question, "Ask Edgar".

Redz Rants is in its infancy, but is a great thread.

"Write a Haiku"

Thanks Roy.  I'm currently fighting off a major case of writer's block on one topic.  Just spent 45 minutes writing something and deleted it (on purpose)

u know whats funny, when thinking of the best threads on CB, they rarely have anything to do with the celts or bball.  most of the time its the community or off topic threads that stick out for me.

The celtics talk forum during the summer is like high school school was for me during summer. I don't think about it much, and I don't really miss it, but before I know it the seasons change and I'm in there all day.
