Today we continue to present for you the very best of The Good Phight 2012 - those moments, forever captured on the internets, of the highest points in the most mediocre of seasons and submit to you this year's nominees for its first-ever Grover Awards.
As you may recall, various posts over the past year were saluted with this image:
which denoted, albeit roughly, that jus du blog, the very best of the sweaty essences poured forth in the exiled spaces in our dwelling places. To elaborate, any member of the blog, whether lord or serf status, is eligible to be nominated, though, in the true spirit of noblesse oblige, nominations are granted only by your lordships. Behind the scenes, your bloglordship was
cutting and pasting a shared Google document working tirelessly to develop a new award that would salute the very Essence of Us-ness. As we review the inaugural entrants, the criteria are somewhat vague to define, but on balance, whether via deep insight or extreme pointy-headedness, they generally made us laff. Hard! But in that "many a truth about the Phillies in jest were told" kind of way.
Our schedule for the week presents nominees in the following categories:
Yesterday: Best Original Blogplay: The posts that were exemplary in their virtuosity, and slow-clappingly outstanding in the overall field of blog excellence.
Today: Best Original Screenplay: The posts that gave us a pictorial feast for our eyes, whether in still or animated form.
Tomorrow: Best Adaptation of an Original Post: The best posts that riffed on whatever might have been originally intended and moved it to 11, because you see, it's one louder.
Friday: Best Response (Long form): Best responses to another post, generally 25 words or more, and
Best Response (Short form): The pithiest pith that ever pithed.
After each post, there's a poll for you, the fans! - to vote for your favorites and celebrate a year of Good Phighting. Award winners will be able to list, on their signatures, the trademarked "2012 Grover Award Winner, [category]" and then celebrate your newfound fame however you wish.
Today's category: Best Original Screenplay. And the Nominees are:
Chris Haines: "Boring Halladay Game Fangraph"
Jeff Curry: "WALK OFF A HERO" - (the photo for the post.)
Halladayseason: "Not too long ago/Joe Morgan flames"
Halladayseason: "The Liar in Winter"
