It’s the bottom of the 9th, and I’ve been brought into the game to seal the deal with a 10 run lead. That’s how I would describe the last couple months at PH8. I wasn’t around for most of the year, so I deserve very little credit for PH8’s UCB award win for “Best Team Blog” (see full award winners list here). The rest of the guys did the heavy lifting for most of the season, and I was a late season callup when the roster expanded. However, that certainly won’t stop me from gloating a bit to friends and family when they unwrap their PH8 hoodies this Christmas.
“Oh, did you know that I’m a contributor to this awesome Cardinals blog? Why yes, we did win an award. As a matter of fact, we are part of a huge family of awesomeness that is the UCB family of blogs. Gosh, I’m humbled that you’ve even heard of just how awesome we are. Hope you enjoy the hoodies!”
In all seriousness, it’s very much an honor to be recognized by fellow bloggers for both our efforts and quality of work. It’s especially humbling, because we read what our fellow bloggers produce, and their blogs are very, very good. In this case, we share our win with the team at i70baseball. If you aren’t familiar with what they do, then I highly recommend that you become acquainted with them. I’m a huge fan, and I consider it an honor to be recognized along side such a heavy hitter in the blogosphere. Congrats to all the winners and nominees. To the guys here at PH8, thanks for letting me pitch the bottom of the ninth in a non-save situation.
