The First Loser!

Results are in, and the Battle of Alberta finished 2nd in the Best Sports Blog category of the 2006 Canadian Blog Awards.

The Joy of Sox, who took the gold by a final margin of 12 votes, has a rundown of the end of a rather tight race. Congratulations to them of course, and to Mirtle who took the bronze.

Thanks a ton to all of you who voted -- be assured that Andy and I appreciate it a lot. I might as well use this occasion to again state that I think our site has a phenomenal Comments section, and that we clearly owe that, and thus the overall quality of the site, to the readers. Huzzah!


I suppose coming second to the mighty Red Sox Nation is nothing to be ashamed about. But that blog used the Sons of Sam Horn page to help gain votes. How the hell can we compete with that? It's like trying to outspend the Yankees.

Thanks to all who voted, and to all for your continued support!

If you're gonna lose, at least it's to one of my favourite baseball blogs, Joy of Sox.

As for ballot box gimmicks, I noticed one best blog nominess posted topless pictures of herself in the final stretch of voting. You were doomed, friend.

This is where giving away $400 rebate cheques would have come in handy...

So the best Canadian blogs must have topless women? Interesting. When does this become a standard?

BoA might have a a very fine comments section, but it lacks one thing that is separating it from greatness: spontaneous collaborative Oilers slash fiction.

You know what the BoA lacks? A link to one of the most popular message boards in North America. That's some bullshit.

Was that Raymi the Minx jumping on the bed naked? Saw that.

And hey, not bad for not really advertising until the home stretch.

whoa, that was a close one!!!!

but, congratulations cause silver shines might pretty! i got a couple of bronze and a gold....silver's my fave metal so missed on that.

good on ya!

ToTheBank - what one's that? (Serious Question)

HFOilers, Oilfans, Sportsnet, and TSN are all up at the left. CalgaryPuck is not, but they haven't exactly sent a lot of warm fuzzies this way either...

ToTheBank - what one's that? (Serious Question)

He means the SoSH page, I think. Which was why were were doomed.

And where is the naked girl, again?

Andy, you're correct about SoSH, which is exactly we you guys lost. Until next year I suppose....

So two of the top three were hockey blogs? Pretty cool.

And where is the naked girl, again?

Raymi the Minx is the only one I found.

Good work lads!

Well deserved.

I don't think SoSH helped me all that much. It gave me the first little uptick very early in the voting, but that was it. Then there were all the "jokers" who admitted they voted for anyone else (mostly RaptorBlog I think) instead.

Didn't you guys posting for votes on a message board (HF) as well during the last hours of voting?

How the hell can we compete with that?

There was one commenter who said he voted about 20 times in the final hours (by proxy).
