And The Prize Goes To...

Postby mlpeel » Wed Jan 14, 2004 7:46 am

Lately, I've been thinking NSBB owes a bit of recognition to posters who've helped make it a more interesting place. The unique flavor of each online community comes from the mix of contributions by all of its posters, not just those of an elite few; but at the same time, high quality contributions from the top posters make that flavor a bit more mouth-watering. Circumstances conspired to make this a good time to honor such a poster, so Tim and I conferred to decide who it should be.

Our choice: HoopsCubs, who helped keep the Hot Stove cookin' here at NSBB with his willingness to thrash out trade ideas (peppering these discussions with insights gleaned from his vast correspondence), relentless search for online articles discussing possible player moves, and painstaking salary number crunching. In particular, while the board has seen some thought-provoking discussions, it's tough to beat "Is Choi For Lee On Anyone's Radar?" (a thread Hoops started less than an hour before news of the trade splashed all over the Internet) for topicality. For his efforts, Hoops wins the 1st annual (?) NSBB Award for Posting Excellence. Please join Tim and myself in extending our thanks to Hoops for helping to make our online community a little more interesting.

As a token of our appreciation, we've given HoopsCubs a ticket to this weekend's Cubs Convention.

A much deserved honor, Hoops. And once again, thanks to Tim, Mark, and everyone else who helps to keep this place running smoothly. I don't know what I'd do without it.

By the way, Hoops, you could probably get close to $150 for that pass on eBay. Just a suggestion. :wink:

Congratulations Hoops.

Indeed, the Choi/Lee radar post is the one that got me absolutely addicted to this sight. Suffice it to say there are friends of mine who have had to endure my praise of "a guy on the internet named HoopsCubs" (and others on this board by the way) for insight and opinions on the Cubs.

One caveat, I will be gunning for you in 2005 :lol:

Well deserved, and more meaningful than the old Poster of the Week on the cubs.com board.

Of course, we expect a detailed report on the convention now. :D

Congratulations, your insight was greatly appreciated this offseason. I just registered for a name, but have been following things here since August when I heard about the site. Not sure how I would have gotten through this offseason without the insight given by you and all of the posters. It would be nice to get a report from the Convention for all of us who can't be there!
