Your Pammy Award Winners And New Standings After Week Nine

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for the nominees from this past weekend. As expected, Gary Danielson racked up the points just in time to defend his title as we approach the end of the season. In other Pammy news, Ms. Ward herself just got an official endorsement from the Washington Post's Leonard Shapiro! Shapiro goes so far as to say that Pam Ward is, "always prepared to the max, knows her Xs and Os inside and out and sets up her analyst partners beautifully." He's even championing for her to get better and more important assignments!

We should be so lucky. Here are your winners and your new standings....

10. "Kansas, right back in this football game." - Andre Ware, after Kansas ties it up. They were only down 7-0 before that.

9. "Alabama rolling over the Volunteers of Texas 22-3." - Wendi Nix

8. "No more playing it safe! You got to go for it here" - Gary Danielson before a 3rd and 11

7. "Knowshon Moreno, he's like a karate expert or something. He uses your force and pings off it." - Gary Danielson

6. "When you watch Tiger Woods, you're in awe of what he can do with a seven-iron. Watching Matthew Stafford from up here, he's head and shoulders above most college quarterbacks." - Gary Danielson

5. "This is why going for it on 4th Down is a terrible idea when you fail. You turn the ball over." -Doug Chapman

4. "The Badgers with the lead." - Pam Ward, going into commercial, as Illinois is up 7-3.

3. "These balls are coming out in a few seconds!"- Brad Nessler

2. "We're actually double-fisting on Kansas and Texas Tech over here." - Rob Stone

1. "I dont know who's happier, Mr or Mrs Stafford. If that keeps up there might be a little Matthew coming." - Gary Danielson

Gary Danielson sure has a boner for UGA. It's gonna be more annoying than usual to watch Florida-Georgia this weekend.

how did Doug Chapman not win? You should be rewarded for saying things so dumb, it hurts the brain to contemplate it.

I'm with you, Sean O. Seems like a bunch of 5th graders are voting for the poop / sex jokes as opposed to true Awful Announcing.

You've got to put some of these in context. Danielson at #8 was a legitimate point...the last time Georgia had the ball he said they should be conservative on 3rd and long and just punt and run the clock. They did that, LSU then scored, so this time the score was closer. He wasn't saying "go for it instead of punting", he was saying "go for it, pass the ball".

It was a smart observation in the context of the game, but it looks like a dumb statement when just typed on this site.

In another article, Shapiro called Paul Zimmerman of SI "brilliant".

So obviousvly the more you suck at your job, the more Shapiro likes you
