Didn't Make the Cut - Oh Well.....
The results for the finalists in the Weblogs Awards for 2005 have been announced, and although in the Sports Blog category we got more nominations that any other blog, we didn't get selected for the final fifteen.
The breakdown of the final fifteen is as follows:
7 -- Pro football, basketball, baseball
6 -- College football, basketball, baseball
1 -- Auto racing, assorted
1 -- Cricket
I knew as a shooting sports blog it would be an uphill battle to even get into the final fifteen so all of you could vote, but it was not to be.
Lots of people don't like guns to start with, and other folks don't consider shooting sports to even BE sports, in spite of the fact that shooting sports are one of the only, if not THE only, sports found in both the Summer and the Winter Olympics.
I tried to make the Mr. Completely blog not just as good as, but way better than many of the other sports blogs, so they would HAVE to put us through to the finals.
It didn't work.
Thanks to those of you who nominated me for the award. That in itself is an honor, and I am grateful for your support.
In spite of that, I feel like I've let you all down..............
