I recieved an email today telling me I have been nominated in the ‘Best of Brit Blog Awards’ in the Sports section.

‘The Best of Brit Blog Awards 2007™(BOBBs) launched on the 22nd February to find and reward the UKs most talented writers on the blogosphere. Ask.com, one of the UKs leading internet search engines, has teamed up with a number of celebrity judges including Alan McGee and Channel 5s Jason Bradbury to launch this initiative and get Britain blogging.
