First off, my usual excuses about not writing: a combination of jury duty and work events this whole week has had me 100% tied up.
More interestingly, Joy of Sox is up for a Canadian Blog Award for the second year in a row. If you're not familiar with Joy of Sox, you should be. It's a key part of my "rounds" of Red Sox blogs and consistently has the most timely, up-to-date information and insights on the latest news about the Sox, regardless of time of year. You know, unlike this blog.
But on a serious note, JoS has been key to making our Sox blogosphere credible. His work has been cited by Globe reporters in print as well as live on NESN. If you're looking for a pro blog and Boston Dirt Dogs isn't your cup of tea, JoS might be just what you're after.
At any rate, while bloggers like JoS's Allan still might not get all the recognition they deserve, this is one thing his Web audience can help him out with.

Voting is open until next Wednesday.
As Allan himself put it, "If Red Sox fans can take over opposing ballparks, we can take over a whole country (though as South Park has taught us, Canada isn't a real country)."
