To close out the year we're expanding our year end awards vote to include several categories beyond best and worst announcer of the year. In trying to think of a name for these awards (because the Awfulies just sucked), I drew inspiration from our favorite clip of the year - PYROTECHNICS!! Actually, the name kinda fits because pyrotechnics and lighting things on fire can be a good or a bad thing. It's all encompassing. And as always, the award winners will be decided by your vote.
We'll run new polls throughout the week and up first are the votes for best and worst play by play person of 2011. There are a lot of great choices for each poll today and as you may notice, some announcers are up for both categories speking to their polarity as announcers. Here are your nominees...
Vote For The Best Play By Play Person Of 2011
Vote For The Worst Play By Play Person Of 2011
Nope, the one point (behind) comes from Australian football.
Most unique and spectacular game I've ever seen, Aussie Rules.
It couldn't have been a behind (in the Ohio game) as that sport's season is over, having had its Grand Final on Oct. 1.
It was more likely a rouge from Canadian football, which is wrapping up its regular season this weekend.
