I'd like to thank...

...The Southern California Sportscasters Association for nominating me for Best Sportstalk host of the year. I'm up against John Ireland and Hacksaw Hamilton (if that means anything to you) but I'm just thrilled Meryl Streep doesn't host Clippers Talk or I'd be dead.

Seriously, it means a lot to be recognized by your peers. So many thanks.

Congratulations Ken. You deserve it. I wish I could hear your show more often!

I understand the Dodgers a looking for a new pronouncer to do TV games when Vinnie doesn't travel east.

Any thoughts? Any comments?

Any prospects?

Yes, why by all means, let me pile on. But I stared at the picture, then I stared some more, and you still look like a writer. What gives? Maybe it’s the sweater. Was it a double header with a night game? Proud to almost know ya’.

Wonderful! Good for you!

Congrats! I only wish the Kings and Ducks would improve so you'd have to talk hockey -- something most of the hosts on Washington's alleged sports-talk station have yet to do, despite the presence of the best player on the planet in Alexander Ovechkin. (The station is owned by Redskins mogul and Tom Cruise buddy Dan Snyder, which may explain why the Capitals are ignored.)

Verification word: "repte." What you can call a frog or iguana once you're on really good terms with it.

2nd verification word: "expoven." An appliance to heat food whose name was changed in 2005 to "natoven."

Congratulations. Good luck. Just make sure your competition doesn't die before the voting begins, and gets that sympathy posthumous award.

Some people, after all, will do anything to win.

Cap'n Bob Napier said...

I hope you win by a landslide, Ken, because I heard if the voting is close Al Franken will get the nod.

WV: capin. How you pronounce my title.

Ah, that's great! Congrats! Great picture, I'm just a few levels above you :)

You host Clipper Talk? I'm sorry.

Really don't have much to say, but I felt obliged to relay the verification word -- "pubsight." What Ken saw every time he dropped by the "Cheers" set.

BIG congrats, Ken!! While I'm sure 'it's an honor just to be nominated', I hope you kick some butt and win the whole enchilada. I'm sure your competition consists of a bunch of very nice and qualified people ... but none of *them* write my daily "go-to" blog!

WV: elationt - what Ken will be feeling when he wins this!

Well done! I love your blog, and I can tell you make a great sportscaster/host. On the other hand, John Ireland and Hacksaw? Ouch. On the last hand, you should be a shoe-in. Congratulations in advance for your victory.
