Forget the Oscars...

...there's a far more important set of awards coming up: the Koufax Awards!
Well, okay — we're biased, since we've been nominated for Best Group Blog. Looking over the other nominees in that category, we're forced to acknowledge that our chances of walking away with the Koufax equivalent of a little golden statue are slim to none — and Slim just went fishing with Heath Ledger.
Win or lose, we're sincerely pretty stoked to have even been nominated. In the blogosphere, recognition by your peers is the only way of knowing if you've made an impact (short of getting paid to blog). So our thanks go out to the good folks at Wampum who burned all kinds of midnight oil to pull this together, to those who nominated us (like Josh), and to all of the other nominees. And special thanks, too, to all the folks who are planning on voting — you get free ice cream if you vote for all the right blogs, but in the spirit of Creation Scientists, we won't tell you which blogs are the right ones until after we've picked the ones that nobody voted for. So: no ice cream. Nice try, suckers!
And if we do win, we just hope they don't start playing us off during our acceptance speech (or cut to commercial, like they did during Best Picture — ouch).
