Dont ever underestimate the power of the UK fanbase. Last year, you guys and gals (for reasons that are still bizarre) helped me advance to the end of the “Hot Blogger” contest (an honor than hangs in my new law office) and this year you did the same thing for a UK softball player. The beautiful Amber Matousek rode the wave of Big Blue support to become the winner of COED Magazine’s Hottest Collegiate Softball Player Contest. I spoke with Amber yesterday, who wanted to thank the fans from this site, saying “I would have never won without them.” We think Amber is just being modest, but we nevertheless salute her on an honor that will live for many lifetimes.
I expect softball attendance to rise greatly next year….I will certainly be there….
