Ok.. first the serious stuff…
Hey you! yes YOU Americans! Have you voted yet? Are you planning on it? I sure hope so.
I’m not going to presume to tell you who to vote for. (and believe me, I do have an opinion on it!!) And I don’t want to know who you’re voting for! (no really, I don’t want to discuss it!) See, nothing polarizes friendships more than discussions of politics and religion. That, and I’m Canadian, so it’s not really my place. Besides, Canadian’s dropped the ball last month. (not me!! I’m one of the meager 58% of Canadians (all time low btw) who voted in our National election last month) Talk about apathetic. Geesh. Whatever you do, don’t follow our lead…
Voting is your right! It’s your privilege! Make your voice heard. Please. (besides if you vote you can get things like free Ben & Jerry’s and free Starbucks!)
(maybe if someone offered free bacon & maple syrup more Canucks would have voted)
Vote. VOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTE!! Please Vote. Please.
OK, now for some fun…
Hey, speaking of voting! Get yer arses over to Autosport.com and vote for the Rookie of the Year.
Now, in this case, I’m gonna tell ya who to vote for… E.J. VISO!!
Yes, our favorite little Venezuelan wildman is up for the prestigious award! You don’t get anything for this vote, other than being able to go up to E.J. at the track next season and saying “hey E.J.! I voted for you amigo!!”
Still feel the need to make your voice heard? Well, have I got a deal for you!!
*shameless promotional prodding to commence now*
Now we internet keyboard jockeys don’t get a lot of opportunities for glory. Sometimes, if you’re one of the big dogs, (Pressdog, My Name is IRL…) you get shout outs from bigger dogs in podcasts and newspaper articles, and such. But mostly we’re just happy when someone comments on our latest word butchery. So show us some love! Click on the logo in the nominate me section to your right and start dropping some names!
I plan on dropping a couple of votes for my fave pitstops on the information highway. (both racing related an non-racing related) and I’m encouraging you to do the same! There are tons of categories, and while there are no freebies to bribe you with, you don’t have to leave your house or wait in any line ups!
So, to help you out, in case you’re wondering (for the new categories) my Authority# ranking is 5 (LOL! You Will Respect My Authoritah!) (by comparison P-dog is a 14, “da newtch” as referred to lovingly by Yaumb (who is an 11 btw) is a 28! Making us all eligible for Best Hidden Gem! My blog was established after November 13, 2006, so technically I’m still new! And of course there is a Best Sports Blog category (which last year was dominated by those damn stick and ball folks… grrrrr) Maybe if enough Motorsport related blogs are nominated, we can have our own category next year!
Remember, it’s an honor just to be nominated 😉 So if you’re feeling generous, please honor all those peeps who challenge your beliefs, make you think, get your ire up, or just plain make you laugh out loud over coffee in the morning!
Cheers! And ROCK YOUR VOTE!!! (the most important one of course being tomorrow!)
