I cannot describe how appreciative I am of the turnout during the last two weeks, and thanks to you all, I have been named Ohio’s Best Sports Blogger via FSO’s “Blog Sports Ohio” tournament.
Whether you voted once, voted multiple times or simply retweeted our pleas – I cannot thank you enough.
It would be absurd of me to think that I am truly the best sports blogger in the state of Ohio. After all, I have the distinct pleasure to write with eight of the greatest guys that the Cleveland blog scene has to offer, and they are all very talented writers that are extremely passionate about what we do here. But what I can say is that I do have one the strongest groups of supporters that I could have ever imagined and it is wholly due to you. Some of you have been with us since day one, and others have trickled in over time. But what is more important than tenure is the fact that you’re all a part of this community today.
I realize how tiring it was to hear all of us remind you of the contest over the last few weeks. We never intended WFNY to be a place where we exploit our readers for stuff on a daily basis – trust me when I say that this sort of thing will not be commonplace. But with thanks to your help over the 13 days, I will now have access to the Cleveland Cavaliers through what will be a very important part of the season as they look to bring home a championship. This sort of thing can only further elevate the coverage that we can bring your way each and every day.
To my three competitors – I’m glad to have been a part of the final four with each of you. Regardless of age, style or amount of time spent writing; you were all selected to be a part of the contest for good reason. Keep fighting the good fight.
I’m not exactly sure what the future holds in terms of official announcements or additional opportunities with the great people at Fox Sports Ohio. What I can tell you is that you will all be kept in the loop as any moves are made – all of which will have your best interest in mind.
I am forever indebted.
