Cageside Seats Weekly RECs: Week ending Feb. 22

Cageside Features: Our very own Cageside 'REC' Awards, for "Recognizing Excellence in Contributions from the Cageside Community". Are you a winner of the Interwebs? Could you be? Let's find out...

We're back with yet another dose of amazing work injected by you, the Cageside commenters. Many of you have impressed us all by producing some amazing work and golden comments yet again. So it's that time of the week to recognize the excellent FanPosts, FanShots, and comments that were the "Best in the World" (of Cageside) this past week.

As always, thanks to Cagesider Ecstasy with Extra Cheese for cleverly naming our Weekly Cageside Commenters Awards "The RECs", which perfectly sums up what this feature tries to do. After all, without all of you, Cageside Seats would not be the greatest pro wrestling website on the Internet.

From the "Daily Open Thread for Sunday, Feb. 17: Who Wants To Live Forever?" thread

June, I hope today finds you well. I’m sorry for your loss. I wish there were words that could make it all better. There are none. But, know that it will get better. Your friend, as you say, touched a lot of people in a profound way. He’s survived by a wife, children, family, friends, and even had a deep impact on those who became close to him despite having never met. He left quite a legacy. His stamp on the world is indelible. Know that, because he was here, the world is a better place. Relish the time you had in knowing him and live your life as though you were living up to what he would want for you. Enjoy your Sunday and those that you cherish. by TheRojas on Feb 17, 2013 9:16 AM EST 5 recs

From the "Darren Young injured; reportedly out until October" thread:

“Dearest Titus,

I have made a most excellent discovery! You are, naturally, aware of our mantra, which is, of course, ‘Millions of Dollars! Millions of Dollars!’ Well, until recently I, as well as you, had simply assumed that this invocation was merely a pleasant fiction, in which we hoped to drive our fortune ever higher by positive association. No more! I have discovered that in our name there has been a deposit of some ten million dollars, that we may embark on a journey of enlightenment and, yea, expand that number tenfold thereby. But, lo, then did a fear creep into my most inner thoughts, that we be made a target by such generosity, for the likes of Mr. Brodus Clay and Lord High Admiral Wellington Tensai to strike upon us and thereby plunder our good fortune. And so, for the benefit of us all, I have sequestered myself with research apparatus and such funds as will be needed to guarantee our safety by way of that long-sought dream of man— invisibility. Find enclosed a sum of one hundred dollars, the remainder of our windfall after expenses and needs be deducted.
Yours in tights,
Darren Young

PS— I hurt my knee real bad."
