BBWAA Honors, Humbles Itmetsforme with Best Sports Blog Award
Your author poses with his latest accolade.
Thank you! Thank you!
I hereby accept the award and thank the Baseball Writers of America for selecting my blog for this prestigious honor. In era of corporately compromised blogs, blogs devoted to publishing pictures of athletes' private parts and ruining America's drunk young women, blogs aimed at the hopelessly nerdy, and blogs over-committed to particular fan segments such as the advanced metric lovers, or the semi-literate, I believe my work truly stands out because it reaches out to all those who have an intense love of the game such that they don't care to have it illuminated in any meaningful way. And today you honor me, baseball writers, as I no doubt have inspired you over the years.
I also want to thank Derek Jeter, who, although he gets a lot of gruff in this space for cheating on his taxes, having herpes, and possessing the worst haircut anyone I know has ever seen, has to be credited with paving the way for the writers' recognition of my efforts over the past five years. Thanks old pal. To all your haters, if the fifth glove fits...
