2009 is nearly behind us, another great year of ATQ has passed. The community is what makes this blog so special. Where would we be without the readers and contributors responsible for all the wonderful insights, comments, complaints, paranoia and angst...especially the angst! During the next few weeks, we will be offering up a series called The ATQ Awards 2009, a series designed to highlight some of the most memorable and inspirational events of this past year on Addicted to Quack.
The second category is what we are calling the "Amanda Award". This special honor is given to a current female athlete, associated with the University of Oregon, that you just love, possibly for no good reason.
We have compiled your nominations and although we couldn't take everyone, here is your ballot for 2009.
