I had no idea about this until I received an email this evening. The winners are going to be announced at South by Southwest in Austin in mid-March!

That's some process they have there

andy said...

Fuck yes.

Amy said...

Done. Good luck!

Captcha: bitch mongoose

redsock said...

Has anyone received a validation email? I voted last night, but nothing has come in.

...

And I see "phil" is no more!

Gareth said...

Done (I even felt honest, since I've actually read all the others!).

Captcha: boiler Paquin, which I think came after someone watched True Blood.

yeah, right away

redsock said...

It seems like not putting a space between the words = verification email. Maybe putting a space in last night was my problem.....

Awesome!

It just sucks that they hold this during the offseason. Otherwise we'd be able to organize a much stronger storm-the-gates type of charge.

I'd also like to urge people to vote for fivethirtyeight in the categories it is up for. First, it's ran by a baseball prospectus founder, so it's got a good pedigree. Second, it takes a pretty smart and unique look on the horse race side of politics. It's pretty neat.

I got the verification email immediately.

Used my school email and didn't get anything. Figured it was the spam filter or something so I resubmitted using my gmail addy and worked great.

tim said...

Good luck!

Benjamin said...

I put in the space and got the e-mail right away (to a yahoo account).

L-girl said...

I got my validation immediately.

So phrenile is phil is now Benjamin, eh? Or else some guy named Ben stole phil's sheep.

Saskboy said...

Congrats and good luck.

Benjamin said...

Yeah. I should change the sheep so you get really confused.

L-girl said...

I should change the sheep so you get really confused.

To that, I say Baaaah.

Dammit I didn't leave a space because I read this first then I remembered wrong. I will go back and correct this oversight immediately. BTW what a horrible page layout. I felt like I was scrolling right for an hour.

Truck Day is Babe's birthday! Surely a curse is either broken or put in place!

(I only know that because my mom has the same B-day as Babe. And Ronald Reagan. Jidge and Dutch.)

andy said...

ok both ways and no email.

L-girl said...

I think if you don't get an validation email, you haven't voted.

No space with word validation, ever.

No problem!
1. select best sports blog.
2. push numerous buttons
3. Win!

Jere said...

"No space with word validation, ever."

Ticketmasturbator requires the space between their two words. Fairly new thing.

L-girl said...

I knew someone would correct me.

Jere said...

Never say ever:)
