That's what I have to say after I read about the "tragic news" so many readers sent us regarding the guy behind the LSUoverUSC "blog."
Remember the billboard some LSU jokers actually raised money for in order it up outside the USC campus to proclaim SC didn't win a share of the 2004 National Title? Well, this LSUoverUSC "blog" came into existence around the time of this "campaign" with its sole mission (and only posts) being about how USC didn't win anything in 2003 and LSU was the only champ that year.
Ok, fine. Everybody is entitled to their opinion. But the asshole behind the site set out to "prove" his opinion by spamming ever other blog and sports site on the Internet. Folks, I kid you not when I say there were multiple times when Benny and I would delete 10 "comments" a day from this jerk linking back to his "blog."
Well, earlier this week, MZone readers alerted us to a post on LSUoverUSC in which the person behind it identified himself as "Fraser Babineaux" and claimed that he was "obsessed" with his blog and posting on forums due to OCD. He claimed his therapist told him, in order to recover, he had to stop and thus, he was shutting down the site.
Now, I admit, I actually felt bad for the guy. Then, two days later, another post appeared on the site under the title "tragic news":
"I am going to try this and hope it works. My best friend was Fraser. Yesterday, he was found dead in his apartment. He was a troubled guy over the last six months. I knew alot was wrong. He put besides him a note for me and in that note he gave me the password hear and asked that I post saying that he always believed in his cause and he couldnt live on with out it.
I hope he can find the peace he never could find here in this world now."
That's when I lost any and all sympathy for "Fraser." Because, call me a heartless prick but I don't believe this for a second. Hey, if I'm wrong, I'll be the first to put up a post apologizing. However, I don't think I'll need to. Because this screams hoax to me.
And that's even more fucked up than his "cause."
UPDATE: Since posting this last night, the LSUoverUSC site has been "updated" yet again -- twice. First, "Fraser's" good buddy put up a copy of his "dead pal's" 10 page manifesto detailing the "proof" of his "argument" for the site (the same one that was spammed all over the Internet by this asshole). This latest one was put up "in memory of my friend." Riiiiight. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact that daily visits to his site went from "Fraser" and his imaginary friend to over a thousand a day this week since Fraser's "final post" then the "tragic news" that followed.
In addition, Mr. Good Buddy also put up "funeral arrangements" for the "deceased." However, as one of our readers already pointed out, a quick Google search makes the whole thing smell like a bigger pile of bullshit.Gee, amazing how this site is now updated more since Fraser "died." This guy is the Tupac of bloggers.
