As usual, my voting was out of step with the majority. BG East fans polled for the 2012 achievement awards have spoken, and their choices seldom coincided with my own. I have the same problem with the Oscars and, for most of my voting life, Presidential Elections. Though, in this case, I do see the wisdom in the choices the majority made. To each to his taste, as they say. I am positive I picked one of the winners (Wrestler Spotlight: Austin Cooper for Best Spotlight Release 2012), and perhaps two--at the moment I forget who got my vote for Best Abs, though Eli Black seems like an obvious choice for me, too. I haven't even seen about a third of the winners. Not yet. Now I intend to.
I hope BG East makes this a tradition. It's a great idea, especially for somebody as fond of listmaking and superlatives as me. Here are the winners of the BG East poll of viewers' favorites for the year 2012. See more details on the BGE homepage here.
