It's almost been a whole year since we last visited The Titletowns.
For a refresher course we go back to the 1st Annual Titletown Awards:
Basically, when we started this website, we were extremely naive about how much work it would be, how much people would come to expect of us, and surprisingly, how much quality competition we would have. In fact, we were so impressed with the competition, that we decided we’d start an annual tradition here at Cheesehead TV, henceforth known as - The Titletowns.
This year there are four categories. They are as follows, with nominees included:
Best Packer Blog 2009
There are literally hundreds of blogs dedicated to the Green Bay Packers maintained by fans of the team, as those of you who traverse the Packer Blogosphere well know. They range from the serious to the absurd. These are 4 of the best, with last year's winner Railbird Central fighting second timer packergeeks while fending off the newcomers.
Packer Fan Website Design Excellence 2009
This one is near and dear to my heart. Packer Fans that take it to the next level. From unique layouts to overall structure to handling new technologies adeptly - these are 3 of the most excellent websites. Current champion Packer Palace facing off against the new challengers.
Greatest Cheesehead 2009
It astounds and amazes us year after year what people will do in the name of love for the Pack. Last year's Greatest Cheesehead nominees were examples of that. 2008 saw some amazing testimonials to the way the greatest team on Earth takes over peoples lives and urges them to act in ways they could never have imagined. The nominees are:
- Ben Rathkamp, a devoted 10 year old Green bay Packer Fan broke every cheesehead's heart last year thanks to this Packers Lounge article as well as the makes you proud to be a Packer fan follow-up article.
- The Stark Family shows us how real fans put it out there with their masterpiece "Brett Favre Burning" - showing us that a family that makes videos about the Packers together - stays together.
- John O'Neill aka St. Vince is still making it happen 12 Years after he started and going strong. I have to say he is definitely the most photographed with Packer Fan on Myspace.
Best Packer Fan Web Video Clip
For you die-hard CHTV fans, you may be asking "where is the Packer Pro Media Source category at"? The answer is that last year's winner was JSONLINE. We are holding them the undisputed heavyweight UNTIL Further Notice- not only because we like Greg Bedard but because really - who's better? So basically they win every year but we're too cheap to give them a prize :) That is until the Green Bay Press Gazette or the Wisconsin State Journal are taken over by Die-Hard Packer Fan Rebels.
There you have it, the nominees for the 2nd Annual Cheesehead TV Titletown Awards. Winners will receive a framed certificate of recognition, a special set of gifts from our store, plus a copy of our Packer Remix on a custom designed CD as well as custom designed buttons. Winners will be announced Friday, February 27th at 1PM, so check back often between then and now for a more thorough look at all the people behind the blogs, videos and fans of the Green Bay Packers that make up our 2009 nominees.
