Important Question About Jason Marquis

So now that Jason Marquis leads all of baseball with 12 wins and is clearly on his way to his first Cy Young award, it comes time to discuss a very serious question. As Silverblood just mentioned in her Rockies Review, Jason Marquis hails from beautiful Staten Island, New York, which is a place I don't expect many people to know much about (including New Yorkers who regard S.I. as more of a whipping boy than legitimate borough).

Some of you guys may not be aware of this but another great export from Staten Island, an export of which the entire world has served as beneficiary, is the Wu-Tang Clan. The Wu-Tang Clan has been keeping it real in the world of hip-hop since the late eighties and I'm almost positive they occupy a warm place in Jason Marquis' heart. So without further ado, here is the poll:

P.S.  Please discuss the rationale behind your vote as this is a very serious matter.

P.P.S.  Even if you don't know a thing about the Wu-Tang Clan you should still probably vote and then just make up a logical (or not) rationale behind the choice.

P.P.P.S.  Bonus points will be given for referring to Staten Island as "The Shaolin" should one need to do so.

Eat. Drink. Be Merry. But the above FanPost does not necessarily reflect the attitudes, opinions, or views of Purple Row's staff (unless, of course, it's written by the staff [and even then, it still might not]).
