Here again are the nominees for the Tako Tuesdays Drunk of the Year award:
JShufelt - We've heard the story. He forgot the beer. But that was once. And the Jeremiah Masoli of drinking can be forgiven for his one Boise State-esque slip-up. At all ATQ tailgates I attended, he brought the beer, and brought it well. His season-long consistency has earned him this nomination
AcadianTraverse - If JShufelt is Jeremiah Masoli, AcadianTraverse is Ndomakung Suh. AT earns this nomination simply for making trumpetduck and I look like bitches at the Cal game. We shotgunned a PBR, he shotgunned a tall boy. Winner winner, chicken dinner.
CaDuck - I know he's one of the wee ones around these parts. But CaDuck has earned this nomination for his commitment to Tako Tuesdays despite sometimes having no frame of reference for the conversation. And that's something to be commended. He's setting himself up nicely to be a hell of a beer drinker once he turns 21.
Bill Musgrave - Bill gets this nomination for, when someone attempted a Bill Musgrave for Tako Tuesdays coup, he graciously declined a chance at the prestigious position. Humility is a great thing in life, even on the Internet.
jtlight - Not only is he an outstanding drinker, but he gave birth to the idea of Tako Tuesdays as an AtQ post. qrsouther came up with the name Tako Tuesdays, but I'm still upset over our jersey contest tie, and there are multiple Taco Tuesday spots around the country, including at least two in Eugene (TayTay's and Agate Alley Bistro), so I would have gotten there eventually. So Quinn gets snubbed. Back to Jared. He's been a fantastic blog manager this past year, and he's been nothing supportive of my weekly write-ups on an Oregon sports blog that rarely have anything to do with Oregon sports.
Vote as much as you like, as long as it's once.
