What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
It that time of year again for all you loyal Dubsists out there. It’s time yet again for our Thanksgiving-weekend tradition here at Dubsism; today is the day we open the nomination period for our coveted awards for various achievements in the world of sport. For the ninth January in a row, we here at Dubsism will be handing out our coveted awards. 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.
That brings us to the fact that we have a new award, this year, the The Dick Vermeil Award For Great Moments in Crying.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are very few criteria for submitting a ballot:
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…
Deadline for submission is 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. time on Friday, December 29th, 2016.
