As we quickly approach our 5 year anniversary here at KSR, and look back at our time both entertaining and infuriating you, there has been some people and things that have made their mark on the site and the people who read this site. So, today we are giving you our first batch of KSR Hall of Fame Nominees. Here are our rules for the voting:
-We are gonna leave the vote on the right side of the page for one month (4 weeks)
-We will refresh the poll every week, allowing you to vote a total of 4 times
-The Top 5 finishers will be our first Hall of Fame class
Here are the 2010 Nominees:
-Rob was a founding member of Kentucky Sports Radio, and is probably the most professional of any person who has written for this site. Rob always gave the best football recruiting news of anybody on the interweb. And this site has never filled the void when he left to take a real job. You will occasionally see Rob give some quick tidbits on the site from now and then, but it will never be the same without a Rob Gidel football update on a regular basis. Also one hell of a guy who never did steroids or bet on baseball.
-The first true musical celebrity to appear on KSR. A personality that made the early days of KSR more tolerable. Wrote the theme song for the website, and is a constant mention still on the site and during our secret KSR meetings.
WOO’S GUMMY BEARS
-If there is a person who has been kinder to KSR than Woo, he will be hard to find. And it basically all started with Woo and his gummy bears. In the early days when it was a struggle for KSR to get interviews, Woo came on with Matt and uttered his famous “gummy bears and other fruity snacks” line and entered in KSR lore. While maybe someday Woo as a man will get into the Hall of Fame, for this year his gummy bears belong there.
-Would we know how to shoot a basketball or kick a football without Kige? Would we know how to get rid of acne without Kige? Would Nicole Ritchie still be alive if not for Kige? All good questions. All why he is on this list.
-No, not Josh Harrelson, but his jean shorts.
-Our favorite reporter here at KSR. He has been our connection between the blog world and media world for all 5 years. Ah, who am I kidding, Tipton has been our most hated reporter. But when we mention him on the site, the comments and readership goes up. So he has been a integral part of increasing the popularity of the site.
-I say Ryan Kelly to you and what do you automatically think: POOP TOOTH. KSR gave this guy an all-time great nickname with an all-time great picture. And this guy ended up going to Duke, so it makes this all the better.
-Chip has always been nice to us, but in all honesty if Chip didn’t wear a purple suit to the Derby one year, he likely wouldn’t be on this list. But, because he is always well dressed, and gives us great football news all the time, he is on the nomination list.
-Bomani actually posted 3 or 4 times on KSR, and gave us a little flavor on our lilly white website. Bomani also gave us “Ricky Three Stacks”. Because nearly everything Bomani does is comedy gold, he clearly belongs on here.
NOTE: FOR TODAY AND TODAY ONLY, IF YOU THINK SOMEONE ELSE NEEDS TO BE INCLUDED ON OUR NOMINATION LIST, LET US KNOW IN THE COMMENTS. AND BEGIN VOTING RIGHT NOW.
