Well, here we go. I got around to tallying the entries a lot sooner than
I thought I would. There were a few surprises, some run-away victories
(or losses, depending on the category), and some very closely contested
awards. For each of the 46 awards, what follows is the winner, the
description of the award, last year's winner, some participation
statistics for the award, and a vote breakdown, listing the number
of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place votes each potential winner received.
Interspersed throughout the "official" awards are the mock awards
that voters included with their entry forms.

I hope everybody enjoys reading this and that my efforts were
worthwhile. Any format complaints, etc., should be directed to
me in e-mail. Any other feeback can be posted or e-mailed to me.

Herb...

P.S. The complete posting that I had prepared is 80 Kbytes big, and
will get truncated if I post it, so I've split the posting into
two halves, and made two postings.

Now on with the show:

I second that! (you bastard!) :-)

Don't forget Koko's bird Frankie (oh great, now I'll probably get
hate mail from those damn animal rights activists)

Make it just by submission. We have to give Flair a fighting chance
against the all-powerful, career-ending Leg Drop of Doom [tm].

>Best Entrance Music Ever Used: Ironman for the Road Warriors

Ive always been partial to the way Flair plays up to the theme from
2001. Great music! (I think both Hennig and Steve Austin have tried
to copy his style, but Austin isn't even close)

>The "1,2,3 we have a new champ, no he kicked out, ohh I've orgasmed" award:

Goddamn, I laughed so hard after reading this, the people around
me thought I was on a controlled substance. :-)

The film "Dead Women in Lingerie" is rated R, and not G,

Someone may just have their chance. I'm planning on decreasing my
already limited involvement on the net, and may not be around at all for
the next 6-8 weeks. Details are forthcoming.
