The Liberty Ballers DONG Categories Announced

We have a good time gabbing about the Sixers here on Liberty Ballers but a good chunk of the discussion here comes from what Tanner had for lunch or Jordan's summer long shaving sabbatical. I like to think we've developed quite the community here and I have a pretty good picture of what you're all like away from the computer (Sean).

So with less than three weeks until Harry Osborn and Mia Thermopolis kick off the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, it's only fitting that LB announces its nominees for a number of meaningful categories in what will now be known as the DONG Awards. None of the categories include Best Blogger -- we don't want any feelings hurt, plus we know you love us all equally. Like your children.

Without further ado, here's the list of categories that will be voted on in polls over the coming days and you can hit the jump for the nominees.

Get excited about the voting in the comments! Also, yell at me for not including you in the Best Commenter category. It was a tough ten to choose from, and there's a number of you who came very close or some (pumper, hart ford and James_C come to mind) who have just recently started getting into it. We love you all and think we have a nice mix of new guys and veterans on the list here. Should be a close vote.

We'll probably still be doing The Ricko's and The Jodie's at the end of the season as well.
