I will announce the two random winners on Monday when the voting results are revealed for the 2013 Burt Awards.
Without further ado, here are the final categories that need your votes…
Leading off the final week of voting is “Best Nickname.” In a day-and-age when most players’ nicknames have been reduced to simply adding a “y” or “ie” to their surnames, the Reds and their fans still manage to come up with some catchy monikers. Which is your favorite? Last year, “The Toddfather” took home the Burt with 37% of the vote. Frazier is nominated twice this year.
Next up is Favorite Food at GABP. Whenever you go to Great American Ball Park, there’s that one delicious item that you can’t watch the game without. What is it at GABP that makes your belly growl and your tongue slap your eyeballs? And if the menu we listed doesn’t suit ya, click “other” and write in your vote in the comments section of this post. The winner last year, with 20% of the vote was the good ol’ fashioned hot dog.
Our next category is “Best Special Event of 2013.” It was a busy year for our Reds staff, especially the Entertainment and Productions and Promotional Events departments. Several really cool Reds events took place in 2013. Which was your favorite? Last year, the “Shave Marty” event won with 34% of the vote.
We know how much you folks love your bobbleheads, so pay attention to this next category. Of the nominees listed below, which would you like to see made into a bobblehead in 2014? And please note, this is just for our amusement and there are no promises that the “winner” will get a bobblehead next year.
The next category is new to The Burts this year – “Favorite Section at Great American Ball Park.” Where is that you like to sit or hang out at beautiful GABP when you come to a Reds game?
Another new category this year is “Favorite Game Time Start.” Late afternoon, early evening, west coast, business day special? Ideally, what is your favorite time to watch a Reds game?
Easily, one of the most popular blog posts here on Better Off Red involves Reds “At-Bat Music.” Which Reds player had the Best Music in 2013? If you need a point of reference, Click HERE to scroll through all the 2013 music updates.
Finally, the last category of the 2013 Burt Awards is – Favorite Place to Go After a Reds Game. Where is that you like to celebrate a Reds victory (or on a rare occasion, mourn a defeat)?
Well, that about does ‘er. All of the nominees for the 2013 Burt Awards have officially been announced. It’s up to you to decide the winners!
