I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend, and has fun plans for New Years! The votes for the McCoven Awards have been tallied, and the winners are below the jump! The prize is the undying love and devotion of your fellow McCoven. (No cash or gift prizes. We're saving for the RDF!)
Best Image: Dancing Umpire
I'm still not sure what's going on here, but I believe that the catcher is comforting Carlos Beltran after he got hit by a pitch. I don't think anyone will ever know why the umpire is dancing.
Best Video: jctGamer's The Most Epic Giants Video Ever. Period.
This was so good, nothing else could even garner a nomination!
Best Fan Post: Mets Fan David G.'s "How Santiago Casilla Ruined my ESPN Streak for the Cash."
MsSpirit Award: Natto
I thought this was a bit of a no brainer, as Natto spearheaded the MCC brick at AT&T Park, but it was close between Natto and TheLetter2. Congrats, Natto! Well-deserved.
Most Informative: Roger
I think I might hurt some feelings with this, but I believe that Roger is my favorite overall poster on this site. I have learned so much from him, and he's such a nice guy. Giant Among Angels put it best: "He comes across very knowledgeable without the smugness or smart ass or know-it-all comments. I especially enjoy reading his comments concerning Giants prospects history."
Best Newcomer: free f.p. #14
free f.p. #14 is another one of my favorite posters, because of his passion for prospects. He's been running the Community Prospect Lists this year, and he has done a great job. Those have been a font of useful information and interesting discussion. He's become a staple in the comment threads, as well.
Most Amusing: Johnny Disaster
I know Mr. Disaster in person (you thought he only existed on the internet, didn't you?), and he's a super great guy. Also, his photoshops are legendary. But, he really upped the ante in the McCoven Awards voting this year with this:
Not brought up to be political but I just found out that the next Republican Debate will be moderated by none other than:
I don't bring this up to be offensive, but your mother gives a terrific blowjob.
And, those are your McCoven Award winners. Congrats to all!
