Koufax Award Nominations

by Kieran Healy on December 13, 2004

Nominations are now open for the “2004 Koufax Awards”:http://wampum.wabanaki.net/archives/001502.html. If you think we deserve it, head over and nominate CT for any or all of *Best Blog*, *Best Group Blog*, *Best Writing,* *Best Post* and *Best Looking*. I think that last one is a category.

Oh god, it’s the same every year. We get nominated as “Best Group Blog”, which means “Maybe about Nineth Or Tenth Best Blog On A Good Day, But There’s A Group Blog Category So We’ll Nominate Them In That”. And then we lose.

Talking of which, we won the group blog category in the Edublog awards. So it’s obviously a matter of getting the competition right. “Best left (but not too far left) social sciences & humanities group blog” for example.

The best paper is quite interesting.

You are definitely one of my faves. Keep up the good work. On the other hand, there are a few million I haven’t gotten to yet. So many blogs, so little time. If you are indeed ninth or tenth, that’s not too shabby considering the millions.

best looking? are we going to have to post an online gallery or something? maybe we could use cafepress to make a “hotties of crooked timber” calendar. I foresee huge sales on the basis of dsquared’s inimitable welsh take on tarzan for the july photo.

Strategically-placed leek for March, shurely?

Hey, I put ya’ll in for best group blog! If you’re so inclined, I’m whoring for a Billmon best post nomination. I put up his economic trends analysis, “Wild Blue Yonder,” but this is a great opportunity for Whiskey Bar fans to scroll back through the archives.

My agent assures me I’ve got “Best Looking” 3-1 favourite…

Eh, the Koufax awards doesn’t have any teddy bears.

No no dsquared, you get nominated for “Best Group Blog” because it’s not fair for the lonely interweb toiler who has to keep their* ankle shackled to the desk to keep their own little blog constantly NEW! and EXCITING! if they have to go against a huge group of people, each of whom individually has a life or a side blog or something and only posts once every few days, but who collectively produce more output than Glenn Reynolds snorting Vivarin. That you lose, I have no excuse for.

(Disclaimer: I do not speak for myself–my blog couldn’t really be called “lefty” most days. As you can see the blogger I’ve been discussing most lately is a righty.)

*Brian will back me up on this usage.
