As the year draws to a close we here at DeadBall decided we’d honour the occasion with our own crappy awards system, just like every other crummy institution. They’ll go out from tomorrow or the day after, hangovers permitting, and we’re aiming for one a day until they’re all finished sometime in the middle of January. We’re posting the categories below; if you’ve nominees for any of them you think we might have missed (our standards of research are ridiculously low, it must be said) feel free to post them as comments.
Categories for the inaugural DeadBall Awards:
Best non-sports sports moment.
Comeback of the year.

Sheer genius award – A play or piece of driving or shot that defies belief.

So yeah, we’ll post the winners and honourable mentions from tomorrow(ish) onwards. See you then, and happy New Year and all that.
