As Ramzy pointed out a few days ago, Blogs With Balls has launched the Untitled Sports Media Awards Project to recognize some of the shining stars in online sports journalism.
There are literally hundreds of different awards shows in entertainment, media and sports, but none of them have acknowledged a growing list of great internet sports writers who certainly deserve the recognition.
So we thought we’d create one.
We’re not just limiting this awards show to bloggers, either. We’ve always tried to gray the line between mainstream and independent media, so it certainly made sense for us to include bloggers, mainstream media, radio and TV in one amazing event.
The winners will ultimately be determined the fans, meaning that each award is backed by what the public really thinks. Who is the best sportswriter in the country? Who is the best in-game analyst? Who is the biggest rising star in our industry?
You help decide.
Now, we're pretty biased, but we're pretty proud of the hard work we put into 11W and would tickled (sans stuffed bear) if you could help spread the good word by taking a few minutes out of your day and nominating this site and its writers where it makes sense.
To do so, please visit the ballot here: http://blogswithballs.com/bwb4/usmap/
