Over the next couple weeks we'll be posting several gimmicky year-end articles to look back on the year in AA. I'm a bit of a sucker for year-end lists and retrospectives, what can I say. To kick start our celebration of 2011 is the first ever vote for Pammy of the Year! We've brought together the Pammy winners from the 14 weeks of the regular season along with a few of our favorites for you to select the Pammy quote of the year. The rules are the same for the weekly Pammy vote, you can vote for up to five nominees and the winners will come Wednesday morning. Here are your nominees...
