First off, thanks to all the fans that voted for the WNT Blog in the 2007 U.S. Soccer Best Of Awards, finishing third behind two actual legitimate journalists in Steve Goff, one of the best soccer writers in the United States (nay, the English speaking world?) and Ives Galarcep, who always writes insightfully and entertainingly about Major League Soccer and the game around the world. Secondly, to all those bloggers out there whining that their blog didn’t finish ahead of the WNT Blog, well, in the words of Steve Martin…excuuuuuuuuussssse me! Ha, we're just joking, and we definitely think any of the other nominated blogs could have earned the bronze (and almost did, too...it was close!), but our loyal and dedicated WNT fans showed their appreciation for our hard work. We like to think even though we're writing just about the Women's National Team, we do a pretty darn good job (yes, we're patting ourselves on the back right now...literally...which makes it hrd t o tpe). I guess in the end, if people felt the voting was rigged...well, it wasn't. We figure fans like our blog because it's like candy for the soccer brain. Oh, and who doesn’t love Pandas? Candy and pandas, that’s our motto for the day. But seriously, to all those who voted for the WNT Blog, a deep heartfelt thanks for taking the time to read about the U.S. women as well as continuing to support the team.
