What was worse, the Ice Bucket Challenge or Let It Go? Who was worse, Bill Cosby or Donald Sterling? More annoyed at the Polar Vortex or U2 pushing their album to your iTunes account?

BLOG SHILL: Every year, I hold a vote for the worst events of the year. If you'd like to go vote and/or comment, you can go here.

Worst event of the year: Pulling my hamstring. It's been two months and I still can't run yet.

I hope everybody else joins me in voting for this. It really sucked! OK, it doesn't suck nearly as much as being drugged and raped by Bill Cosby, but I'm thinking of things that happened to me here.

I'll file this under "Embarrassment."

The tendonitis in my ankle is the clear winner. It's like Bill Cosby is in there, but he forgot the drugs.

Wasn't Let it Go, 2013? Or you are just considering it bad enough to extend into 2014.

Hmm, this is a tough one, as I've had a pretty awesome year. New, better job, kid starts kinder, some other cool stuff...

I guess it depends on what affected me personally in any way. Polar Vortex, nope, live in Austin. GamerGate, nope I don't play video games, Cosby, nope I wasn't molested on the producer couch in 1975. Gm recall, nope own a Honda. Ebola, nope didn't hose BGG.CON. ISIS, nope I don't live in the desert. Heartbleed, nope our company software didn't use OpenSSL. Chris Christie, nope, NJ politics doesn't interest me.

Geesh, nothing really bad happened this year that really affected me...I guess Greg Abbott winning the Texas Governor race?

How about having to watch someone eat cous-cous with a hamburger?

Well, the movie was released late 2013. Every single girl in America was singing it Q1 and Q2 of 2014.

So I'm considering it 2014.

That would seem to imply that they weren't also singing it in Q3 and Q4 of 2014 (and won't continue in 2015)

A couple of scares with my blood draw results.

Painful arthritis in my shoulder/collar bone.

Jaw pain that is probably also arthritis.

Been a rough year all around for me. Like "nothing surprises me anymore" bad.

If "Let it go" was the worst thing I had to put up with this year, that would be amazing.

Well, for me that would have to be getting a pilonidal cyst excised, going through 3 months of wound packing, then having it reappear 2 weeks later and doing the whole thing all over again.
