Quantcast

How could anyone not help when being asked by a cute, pleading kitten?

If you’re a fan of Bleacher Nation, take 10 seconds and nominate it for the “Best Team-Specific Site” award here. The award is being presented at the fourth annual Blogs with Balls conference, which is a really big deal in this corner of the Internet. They do good work, and I’d be honored to be considered for one of their awards.

With enough nominations from folks like you, Bleacher Nation could qualify as a finalist for the award, which would help to continue developing our ever-growing community. Yup, I dropped the “community” bomb. We’ve got one of the smartest, largest, and funniest groups of readers and commenters around here, and I want people to know about it. Becoming a finalist for this award wouldn’t just help me, personally, it will turn the eyes of some of the best and brightest on to our community – and I think they’ll like what they see. That can only help all of us.

And spread the word, if you don’t mind. Maybe your friend likes Bleacher Nation and wouldn’t mind dropping a nomination. Perhaps your wife appreciates what we do.

And, of course, if there is anyone else you’d like to nominate, go for it.

Thanks to those who’ve already dropped a nomination – don’t worry about doing it again. Duplicate nominations from the same people are neither welcome nor helpful.

Gracias.

      Thanks, CC.

    • LouCub

      I voted for you guys, I love this site..can’t wait till we can talk about more positive things like Hendry and Quade’s dismissals though..

      • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

        Thanks, Lou. Ditto.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks and thanks.

  • Hogie

    I’ve got a few different e-mail accounts I could use. Could I vote again if I do that?

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      While I totally appreciate the sentiment, I want to keep it legit. So, again, while I appreciate the offer, no need to do multiple nominations.

      (Jeff – to that end, I axed your comment. I hope you understand. And again, totally and completely appreciate the thought.)

      • Jeff

        Okay, I was joking anyway, but my humor comes across wrong sometimes I guess. Sorry.

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          Ah, my bad. I jumped the gun. Sorry about that – and, again, huge thanks.

      • http://twitter.com/thomaswconroy TWC

        Aw, but I had a great Gary Varsho response all ready…

        Oh well. I also nom’d you for the Best Sports Site – Writing Quality category, ’cause the Best Team-Specific Site category seemed so, well, obvious. Like, there are *other* Cubs blogs? Unlikely.

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          Ha. Thanks, TWC.

      • Hogie

        Absolutely

        Didn’t mean to offend, just enthousiastic, but your response only makes me like you, and this site even more.

        Classy

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          Thanks, Hogie. No offense taken in the least. The thought was what counted.

  • Cheryl

    Done. Good luck.

  • Zbo

    Done! Keep up the great work!

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Awesome. Thanks, Zbo.

  • Brian

    Things that I like do not win much (the Cubs) but I have a pretty damn good feeling about this.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Hey, thanks Brian. I hope you’re right.

  • Derek Holloway

    Need Twitter info and Bretts last name

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Twitter is @BleacherNation, and my last name is Taylor. Huge thanks, Derek.

  • Eric

    Is it too late to donate to the site?

  • pdx cub fan

    Brett,

    Done, been reading a couple of weeks now and really enjoy your site. Thanks!

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Sweet. Thanks, pdx.

  • philoe beddoe

    done

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, pb. I kept meaning to ask about your name, because I didn’t get the reference. And I just Googled it. Nice.

  • Polar Bear

    Just submitted my vote!!! Keep up the great work!!!!

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, PB.

  • Derek

    Done. Just wanted you to know I found this site recently and I think it’s great.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, Derek, and glad you enjoy.

  • necubsfan

    Done. Not even a cat fan.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Ha. Thanks – even though it’s just impossible not to like that kitty-witty-wittle-guy….

      …oh God. I’ve said too much.

      • Toosh

        I take care of 5.

  • Toosh

    Derrek and the Don’t -You-Knows!

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      The instrumental at the end of ‘Layla’ is as good as it gets.

  • Toosh

    Agreed. I was referring to Lee’s HR against the Cubs.

  • Jeff

    Lots of love in the comment section for Bleacher Nation too. Good luck on the award. I hope this works out, and everyone recognizes your work. It is nice to have a blogger with some wit who is as sickly dedicated to this whole mess of a baseball team as the rest of us. It also gives us a great place to voice our opinions among those who similarly suffer and celebrate with us.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks for that, Jeff. Like I always say, this place is as much a credit to you guys as it is to me. Without the readers/commenters of the caliber we have, I doubt it would be 10 percent as enjoyable.

      The only way it could be more fun is if it was the blog for, you know, a good team.

      • MichiganGoat

        Would you say we have “Chemistry?”

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          So, that’s why this place is succeeding!

          • TWC

            Totally. It’s all the chemicals. Chemistry? What? That’s what I said. Bold changes. Indeed.

            • MichiganGoat

              The right chemicals can make anyone happy.

            • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

              Two references in one comment!

  • Spencer

    done. when is the nomination process over, do you know?

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, Spencer. They’ve said it runs through this week. Then they decide on the finalists (fingers crossed), and then everyone votes on the winner. You will all have to excuse me bugging you again (this time for votes in the finals) if BN becomes a finalist.

  • Toosh

    That’s 2 for Derrek and The Don’t-You-Knows. I think Woody might have served one up on purpose.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Ditto Z…

  • Glenallen Hill’s One Home Run

    I did it when you first asked, and I got my dad to do it yesterday after showing him the site. All it takes is one look at your Chik-Fil-A saga to see your immense dedication (and hilarity).

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Ha, thanks Glen. Love the name, by the way – is it, by chance, in reference to the rooftop shot?

      • Glenallen Hill’s One Home Run

        It definitely is! I remember it happening and just absolutely freaking out when I was younger. One of my best early Cubs memories.

        • http://twitter.com/thomaswconroy TWC

          That was an incredible shot. Too bad he was juicing.

          • Glenallen Hill’s One Home Run

            LALALA I KNOW NOT WHAT YOU SPEAK OF LALALA

          • hardtop

            Oh, totally on the juice.
            I just read earlier this summer, someone re-analyzed the shot with weather factors and all that new fangled technology and declared it a 500 footer, even. Pretty sweet! He coaches first here in Denver, and I’ve tried to get his attention a couple times. Yelling shit like “oh that ones over Waveland” when a ball is well struck. I’ve never been able to get him to turn around. Maybe he doesn’t remember, maybe the roids fried his long term data center. Oh well, it was one of my favorite moments in the cubs recent history.

            • Glenallen Hill’s One Home Run

              I saw him at a game at Wrigley when the Rockies were in town a while ago and I wanted to get his autograph WAY more than anyone on the actual team. How lucky is he that, in a career that pretty much defined “mediocre journeyman”, he hit one of the most memorable homers in Cubs history?

  • Gyeva

    Done

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, Gyeva.

  • Fishin Phil

    Done.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, Phil.

  • CUB5

    Dunne. Ooops! Done. Well, I guess they both mean the same thing…

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thenx, Cub5. See what I did there?

  • ron

    Ace, I did it. But only because you actually convinced your wife to blog for 24 hours + and I could convince mine. Just kidding, (sort of). You the man, this is the only Cubs site I follow. You work on prospects is awesome.

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, ron. Happy to oblige.

  • fire hendry and quade

    just wanted to say i used to search for a read a lot of different cubs sites and blogs well i dont anymore. this is the only place i need to go thanks for the great work. and oh yeah done

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, FHAQ. Glad to provide what you’re looking for.

      • hardtop

        Oh great news.
        I’m looking for a 20’s something hottie who is perpetually dressed in lingerie, loves to spin wrenches on old cars, digs riding on the back of, and washing the oil off, rigid motorcycles, and can watch 6 to 8 hours of baseball and actually enjoy & intelligently discuss it. I don’t care if she cooks or cleans; I’m not a sexist pig, as long as she has a trust fund.
        Can you oblige?

        btw, done!

        • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

          I have found someone who fits all of that criteria. I can pass along her info asap.

          One thing, though. She obsessively watches ‘The Nanny.’ That’s still fine, right?

  • Siquo

    I am a Cub fan from Germany and I found this site recently – posts and comments are funny / smart as hell. Really like it and gonna continue reading it. It goes without saying that I voted for your blog…

    • http://www.bleachernation.com Brett

      Thanks, Siquo. We’ve gone international!
