October Post of the Month contest winner

October Post of the Month contest winner 


In recognition of the fine posters of this board, past and future, and recent discussions here about the state of the community, I am instituting a contest for the summer of 2009. For the best message board post in each of the months of June, July and August, the three winners will receive a copy of the new release, “Tony La Russa: Man on a Mission”, from Triumph Books. Each book is autographed by author Rob Rains.

 

To participate, here is what you need to do. Make a strong post AND ensure it is called out by someone (the poster or another community member) on THIS designated thread. Included should be a clear explanation of which post, the poster, the thread, date and time. A link to the post would be even better. The easier I can locate the post at month-end, the better chance it will have to be selected.

 

The winning post I will choose from your nominees can be the start of a new thread or a contribution of an already-open discussion. Scout.com subscribers and non-subscribers are equally eligible. Good luck to all!

For all the interest there seemed to be in this, we are now halfway into the month of June and there are zero nominated posts to date.

I would like to nominate Bike mikes post entitled 45 years ago today. It was posted today at 2:37 and talks about Devine being chastised for that trade. I have been hitting the nominate button at top until i came back and read this thread again. I suspect others have done the same which is why no one has been nominated. How do i post a link?

Edit: Link added

GO CARDS!

To post links from the "Reply to Topic" box, there is an icon on the second line near the right that has a blue globe with three chain links. Click it and copy in the URL.

In this case, I can locate BicycleMike's post based on your description. We now have one contender for June's book.

I feel weird asking this, but is it possible to nominate one of your own posts for "Post of the Month" honors?????.....it may be the only vote I get.

Not many rules here. I am fine with the same person making multiple different nominations including their own posts, different people voting for the same post (actually encouraged) and different posts in the same subject thread are also eligible. Trying to make it as easy as possible...

Just something to consider before naming June's victor, DomeBoys.  BicycleMike, AmBill, UCONN and Easton have all been bragging like crazy in the chat room that they have this thing in the bag.  Humble 'ol Pugs just sits back and lets the judges do their thing.  Did I mention that our judges are some of the finest, most attractive and intelligent human beings that grace our planet?

Longest 24 hours I've ever seen.  Not trying to rush you though, Brian, it's just that I haven't been able to sleep for days awaiting the winner.....I hope I didn't just blow what little chance I had right out of the water.

I shouldn't have stated a time. Taking over the site, lots of news and a holiday weekend have taken priority. I will get it done.

Take your time, DomeBoys.  I know the other contestants(AmBill, Easton, BicycleMike and UCONN) have been pestering you night and day for a final decision.  Maybe we should take this into consideration?
