Kickette HQ: Perturbed By An Awards Poll
When you consider the amount of hot air, high fashion, alcohol and misbehaviour that generally occurs when awards are dished out, you’d think we’d have a staff member whose only job is to sniff out those nominations.
Well, we don’t.
Generally, if we learn we’ve been nominated it’s too late and even if we win, we’re too disorganised to go to the ceremony.
However, a surefire way to get our attention is to let us know we’ve been nominated and then tell us we’re not winning. And it just so happens that this exact scenario unfolded this weekend. Health and fitness magazine (there’s the irony), Shape, have very kindly placed us in the ‘Best Sports Blog’ category in their Best Blogger Awards. At the time of writing we have 6.99% of the votes.
We expect to see this shoot up as the Kickette Army rouses from slumber and votes for us. Or we’re gonna ban the pretty until further notice.
UPDATE: Apparently prize winners get some sort of web video/viral prize which means if you want confirmation that we’re not 55-year-old men/gnarled hags/aliens from the planet Zarg, you’ll hafta vote for us. Soz.
