Is Yahoo! a time machine; 3 of 2013’s top 10 searches are MMA related (kinda)

Posted: December 3, 2013 in Commentary/Opinion

gina_caranoDo people even use Yahoo! anymore? Must to my surprise, they must. And much to my surprise, the people that use Yahoo! are a little behind the times. They just announced their top searches of the year, and I’m baffled by the results.

There were three MMA stars in the top 10 sports-related searches. Two of them are about as irrelevant to MMA in 2013 as Norman Smiley is to the world of professional wrestling. While I’m not completely surprised by Ronda Rousey’s spot at #5, the other two were more confusing.

Tito Ortiz—the guy who hasn’t won a fight in about 25 years—was at #7. Oh wait, I guess he beat Ryan Bader. My apologies. And at #10 is Gina Carano. I seriously could’ve guessed 100 times and not gotten this one right. Is she still even considered an athlete?

For the record, here’s the complete top 10…

  1. Tim Tebow
  2. Tiger Woods
  3. Danica Patrick
  4. Lindsey Vonn
  5. Ronda Rousey
  6. Lamar Odom
  7. Tito Ortiz
  8. Serena Williams
  9. Maria Sharapova
  10. Gina Carano

Tim Tebow at number one? I wonder of Google’s results are equally as antiquated?
