You Like Us! You Really Like Us!!

The principal protagonists at All Spin Zone are in shock this morning.

ASZ made the finalists cut in the Koufax Awards for Best Blog. Wow. In reviewing the competition, that's some pretty rare air we're breathing. Here's a list of the finalists:

All Spin Zone
Baghdad Burning
Brad Blog
Daily Kos
Rittenhouse Review
Steve Gilliard
Suburban Guerrilla

That ASZ even occupies the same space as the rest of this august group is quite, well, overwhelming. We don't think it will be necessary for us to write an acceptance speech because, frankly, the competition is just too intense. ASZ's readership volume can't begin to compete with the likes of Kos and Eschaton.

But that we've come this far in such a short period of time is a testament to both the great folks that have joined me in investing their time in writing for ASZ, and the readers / commenters that make the community work. Thanks to everyone who took the time to click over during the preliminaries and vote for our little scrap of Left Blogistan.

Koufax Award polls are open until next Friday - and while you're there, make sure you throw our compatriots at Blondesense a big, fat, juicy wet kiss for "Best Group Blog".

Update from Forrest 10:30AM Pacific: Get over to Wampum again to vote for Richard's "Wounds That Don't Heal" in the Best Post category.
