The Golden Squirrel 2011

As you have probably noticed, I have not yet announced the winner of the 2011 Nutjob Of The Year.

Through injuries and laziness and other assorted excuses, I haven't spent as much time with my favorite nutjobs in 2011 as I would have liked.

As a result, it is hard to know who is the most deserving of this prestigious award.

How can you judge those you do not see?

So for the 2011 Nutjob of the Year award I am asking for nominations.

Using the comments field of this blog, please submit the name of your nominee, and in 25 words or less, explain why they are worthy of the almighty squirrel. 

And yes,  you can nominate yourself if you like.  As Benjamin Franklin said, "God helps those who help themselves."

The nominees will be posted in next week's blog with a decision made the following week.

May the spirit of the golden squirrel be with you wherever you run.


  1. Shiva nominates Baba the Freak. Anyone who can get so injured after he retires deserves the Squirrel.

  2. Shiva also reminds everyone that she walked her first (and only) marathon this year, choosing one of the toughest courses in the U.S.


Thank you for your comments.
