A funny thing happened on the way to mediocrity. The BrokenCowboy was nominated for a 2004 Weblog Award in the category of Best Sports Blog. You can support your local Cowboy by voting here. You can vote daily, so vote early, vote often, vote like it's a Chicago election. I have no designs on winning the thing, but please save me the embarrassment of finishing last. If you're interested in voting on the entire slate of categories, follow this link.
