I honestly did not even know I had been nominated. I'm shocked I made it as a finalist in the category of Online Commentary (medium)
. Medium, by the way means 100,000 to less than a million unique hits to the overall site (cleveland.com) in a month.
I know it's a cliche, but I was honored simply to be nominated. That Denise Polverine, the editor for Cleveland.com, thought that much of what I'm doing to nominate me (and pay the entry fee
) is very flattering.Jeff Hess
and John Ettore
have been more than effusive in their congratulations for this. I think I actually blushed when I read their comments. Both are great people to just talk and have a few drinks with, when I get those rare chances to actually see them in person. I also want to say thank you to Adam Harvey,
who has been very kind not to gloat too much over his Irish crushing my beloved Pitt Panthers this year.
I just want to thank everyone who is reading NEO Babble, despite the name.
