It’s Time To Submit Your Nominees For The Seventh Annual Dubsy Awards

Norman Maine award sceneFor the seventh January in a row, we here at Dubsism will be handing out our coveted awards for various achievements in the world of sport.  Regardless of where you are reading this, the fact you are here means you likely have read a lot of other sports stuff, and therefore likely have a better idea of to whom to give these awards than do the drunken bunch of keyboard droolers on the staff here at Dubsism. You can always check out our previous awards should you have any questions as to the reasons for which the awards are given, and if you don’t know, you can also do web search on the people for whom the awards are named.  They are both telling and self-explanatory.

Having said that, here is the Dubsy award nomination ballot. Simply fill in your nominees (be sure to include pertinent facts; links to supporting evidence are always welcome, and depending on the reason for nomination, it may be required by the Dubsism legal department), then copy and paste your ballot into an email addressed to dubsism@yahoo.com.

There are very few criteria for submitting a ballot:

  1. One nominee per category per email.
  2. Nominees must come from the world of sport, and they must fit the category in which they are nominated.
  3. You do not need to nominate a winner in each category
  4. Nominees should have a national presence – as much as your local high school coach might be a perfect nominee, if the rest of us never heard of him, it doesn’t do any good. However, we are willing to make exceptions for awesome stories which have links to back them up.

We also will be giving honorable mentions to the best nominees which are pretty damn good, but didn’t win. For those, we will post your name and a link to your blog/webpage if you wish. If you don’t wish, then don’t give it to us…

Let your voice be heard, Dubsists. There’s over  a million of you out there, so let’s really make these awards mean something…we simply cannot let the ESPYs stand as the standard in sports awards. Who gives a shit about what “30 by 30″ movie was the best? Let’s make sure we are giving award for things we care about.

After all, aren’t we as the fans what make sports matter in the first place?

    I have a feeling this is gonna be the best Dubsy’s ever. Maybe a Red Carpet Pre-Show and a Live Podcast of the Dubsy Awards is appropriate?

        Her memory lives on. What a body of work she does leave behind to draw from. I think of Ryan Seacrest at times as the next Joan.

        Does Seacrest have a goofy-looking daughter to ride his coat-tails?
