Shell Games wins Mobbie Award for Best Terps Blog!


YEAH BABY!  We did it!   Thanks to your votes, the Cinderella slipper fits, and Shell Games has won the Baltimore Sun’s Mobbie Award for best blog in the Terps category.  We also finished seventh overall.

A thousand sincere thank-yous to everyone who voted, be it once or be it every day.   Special thanks to those who put up with our regular e-mail and Facebook reminders. 

Also, much respect to our fellow Terps bloggers, especially Testudo Times (which won for best general sports blog), Turtle Soup, Terp Talk, and Maryland Basketball: Where Are They Now? (Michaelangelo:  Thanks for the bulletin board material heheh.)  I guess we’re technically “competitors,” but at the end of the day we’re all in the same gang.  Blogging can be hard work, and people don’t exactly do it for the fame and fortune.  We here at Shell Games do it because we love the Terps, and love making smart-ass comments about the Terps.  That is our mission.  Some might call it a calling.

In all honesty, Shell Games may not get hundreds of comments per post, and we may not be familiar with the long snapper class of 2019, but we’ve got our own thing going on here, and I think we do it pretty well.  Hopefully, those who found us over these past couple weeks will stick with us.  Thanks again to everyone who voted.  We’ll be at the awards reception tonight in Baltimore…paparazzi must keep at least 15 feet away.  You’ve been warned, you filthy parasites!

    I echo MASH’s sentiments. Thanks to everyone that voted for us, and to those of you that read the blog. We’ll keep working hard to produce original content and keep it pertinent to you.

    Congratulations! I didn’t vote for you in the Terps category (I had to try to keep my own blog’s standing respectably in the middle), but I did vote for you several times in the overall category. Keep the Terps snark coming!

    You guys do great work and the award is well deserved. I agree that we are all in this together and a rising tide raises all boats. You guys write with great humor and lord knows our Terps provide the fodder.

    I’ll keep promoting you guys on my site and I hope you continue to do the same for me.
