With only about three weeks left in the year of our Lord two-thousand and eight, it's time to start thinking about who most deserves to be the NARN First Team Loon of the Year. This year's Loon will follow in the webbed footsteps of our 2006 winner Keith Olbermann and last year's winner Nick Coleman.
There have been thirty-eight Loons of the Week so far and in order to pare down the list for final voting purposes, we'll have two rounds of voting. We'll take the first nineteen Loons and vote on the top five finalists and then do the same for the second nineteen. Then our ten finalists will compete to be crowned 2008 Loon of the Year. The winner will be announced at the end of the December 27th First Team broadcast.
Let the voting begin. If you need a refresher on why these individuals were selected, clips are available for most of the LOTW on the right side of the blog. Poll closes on Sunday.
