It's the off season. Time for gnashing of teeth and rending of garments over the Giants' FO. So, how about a break? I present the Sixth Annual McCoven Awards. The categories are after the jump. This fan post will be for nominations, and in about a week [Edit: I'm going to close voting on Saturday, December 17 at 10:00 a.m.], I'll open up polls for voting. Categories are:
Most Outstanding Newcomer
Most Informative Poster
Most McSpirit Award
Most Amusing Poster
Best Image -- Gameday Thread
Best Image -- Non Gameday Thread
Best Fan Post
Here's last year's fan post, in which Natto provided a description of each of the categories: http://www.mccoveychronicles.com/2010/11/28/1840856/4th-annual-mccoven-awards
Previous winners are: kenshin 1, Steve S, Stuttering John Tamargo, Natto, North Side Chicago Expatriate Giants Fan, Goofus, thehavenot, Baron Von Current Events, Giant Screamer, howtheyscored, FairweatherFan, Xanthan, tk, heimy25, Brute Sentiment, Lars the Wanderer, jponry, Prussian Creole, Fla-Giant, Giant Babe, TheLetter2.
Here's the wiki for more information on previous winners (please go to this link before you nominate. Pretty please with sugar on top?): http://mccoveychronicles.wikispaces.com/page/diff/McCoven+Awards/189966340#x-2010
I think we decided that we will no longer have repeat winners, so the above are off-limits. If you guys want to change that, let me know. (Obviously, the Newcomer award has to be someone, well, new.) Also, don't nominate Grant. That would just be lame. (So bad I can taste it!)
Note: You may nominate more than one person in each category.
So, get nominating! You can nominate in any or all categories. I will choose around five candidates for each award, based on the number nominations. You can either make a comment to nominate (including a comment that is simply "concur" or "+1" or the like), or you can rec a nomination. I will count each rec as a nomination.
I know I have forgotten something, so tell me in comments what edits are necessary. I like being bossed around.
P.S. Thank you all for not pointing out that I misspelled "choose" in the initial version of this fan post.
