The McCoveys Award Ceremony and Clambake

The moment everyone has been anticipating has finally arrived! The votes have been counted, and the results are in. Here are your winners for the 2008 McCoveys:

Outstanding Newcomer

The voting began as a heated race between can of corn, but as it progressed, FairweatherFan pulled away and took a decisive lead. But who was that mysterious stranger seen logging in and voting for FF multiple times?

Most Informative Poster

xanthan's story is an inspiring one. He was an ordinary computer considered to be obsolete but rose above and beyond his original programming, providing the world with baseball knowledge and BayCityBall .gif banners and finding love in the process. Dreamworks is already working on the animated adaptation starring Shia LaBouf.

Most Amusing Poster

I'm pretty sure this guy was a fake poster.

Most Spirited Poster

Never has an election been more heated. The candidates were literally neck and neck. At one point, it seemed as if tk would pull ahead of tk, but in the end, tk proved to be the true victor, winning us over with her awesomeness and spectacularity.

Best Gameday Image

This one was actually incredibly close. Final count: Dancing Goofus with 69 votes, Old Folks with 68. In the end, I think we can all agree that when Goofus dances, nobody wins, especially those sitting around him. Heh.. 69....

Best non-Gameday Image

This race was also pretty close, but the Lasorda-bashing Phanatic truly won our hearts and gave us that warm, ooey gooey feeling all righteous men and women get whenever they see Pure Evil get the crap kicked out of it.

Best Fanpost
1) Rohlinger called up
2) Beat LA Rally thread

These were the top three Fanposts of the '08 season. If we've learned anything from this year, it's that the Midwest is a surprisingly good source for Giants transactions. I'm going to put links to them in the wiki, although who knows when I'll actually do that.




I actually have a prize for those who won: I'll draw a cartoon version of you for use as an avatar. Or if you'd rather not show your face, I'll draw a random suggestion - a scene, person, thing, whatever - that you make, like penguins eating Neifi Perez or something. So there are  your winners for the 2008 McCoveys. Congratulations all!
