    2011 was an interesting year I'm sure for all of us. So without further ado, here is my favorites of 2011, the worsts of 2011, and a look ahead to 2012.

    The Cathedral's 2011

    2011 saw a lot of change in the Cathedral. I was graciously accepted as a member of the family and Bdub was added a couple of weeks ago. We also lost Gramps who I never really got to know, but seems to be held in high regard by the rest of you guys (perhaps someday I'll be too). Ravishing also left us, but returned two days later, kinda like when your parents fight but one of them returns after cooling off.

    Perhaps the biggest change was with the commissioner position. Hokie started this league and ran it well for a while, but somewhere along the line he closed his Warcraft account and developed a life. He had suddenly no time for us, so Mullen took over and we have advanced like clock work.

    2011 also saw some of our coaches continue to make strides and move on to bigger and better things. Mullen, Goose, Mormon and Weave all took jobs at BCS schools. Weave won the national championship as the offensive coordinator at Clemson. Mormon also gave us a Heisman when his running back won the award a year ago.

    2012 Outlook: I think there will be continued movement on the coaching level with Pro and Weave being the first to get major head coaching jobs. I also believe Goose will win somewhere in 2012. May not be at Virginia but perhaps at a lower school. Mullen will leave Memphis at some point in2012, Hokie will leave WKU, Plague will leave EMU, Bulldog will stay at USF, Ravishing will stay at SJSU, Mormon will stay at Miami, Bdub will leave Utah State, and who knows what Bonner will do since he never gets online anymore.

    The Abbey's 2011

    Really not much to say aside from the comish change from Hokie to me.

    2012 Outlook: Someone will win a national championship at some point.

    Good review, but I have to disagree with you on your listing of Bridesmaids as one of the worst of 2011.
    Bridesmaids was greatness. I guess I should not be too surprised as you need to spend some time with the ladies to see the humor in the movie.

    Mass Effect 3





    Ninja Gaiden 3




    Halo 4




    The other two games don't have trailers yet, but I think it goes without saying that I'm looking forward to the next Call of Duty...oh and NCAA 13.


    Happy New Year guys, feel free to say what your favorites, worsts, and what you're looking forward to in the comments below.

    2011 - we had a new guy "Pro" enter the league like 4 months after it started and have no idea how amazing it once was before mullen took over... penn state cheerleaders, geriatrics, and clemson 13yr olds oh my!

    2012 - when the new game drops, the real commish once again creates a euphoric fantasy experience with his minions
