Lund Boats Presents the Second Annual Big Dave and Company Blog of the Year Award Brought to You by the Sony PlayStation 3

Well Company, it is June 30th, and that means that it is time to give out the Lund Boats Presents the Second Annual Big Dave and Company Blog of the Year Award Brought to You by the Sony PlayStation 3. Back in April we released a list of the five finalists that the WaWa Big Dave and Company Blog of the Year Search Committee had worked exhaustively to create from the over 113 quadrillion entries that were submitted this year. The possibly five members of the committee, with or without any input from last year's winner Fake Interviews with Real Celebrities and its very funny and talented creator Wendy Molyneux, spent at least 47 weeks straight locked in a secure chamber, their every want and whim fulfilled by The Unpaid Interns, until they were able to whittle down all the entries into just five. And then, The Unpaid Interns poked them with bayonets until they whittled it down even farther to just one.
What they selected was a blog that is deeply devoted to the most American of American art forms. It has established a network oh what we suppose one would call agents to scout and document the various forms and occurrences of this particular art form. That art form, of course, is the erection of Christmas decorations.
That's right, the winner of the Lund Boats Presents the Second Annual Big Dave and Company Blog of the Year Award Brought to You by the Sony PlayStation 3 is Tacky Christmas Yards. Founded in December of 2007 as a way to showcase the best and brightest, please excuse the pun, of Christmas-decorated yards, Tacky Christmas Yards (known as TCY). This plucky little weblog has managed to become a bit of a sensation in its time, especially at Christmastime, as would be expected, a trend that is certain to continue with its election as the Lund Boats Presents the Second Annual Big Dave and Company Blog of the Year Award Brought to You by the Sony PlayStation 3.
Part of the reason the WaWa Big Dave and Company Blog of the Year Selection Committee chose TCY as this year' winner is because they have taken their lumps over the last 19 months or so. They have received hate mail and been accused of being the crutch of just about every organization that might even have a little bit of a tie to the holiday. But we assure you they are not. What they are is a group of people who have taken the time to take the most tacky Christmas decorations and group them into specific areas of violation, such as Unharmonious Arrangement, Griswold Family, or the King Kong. Hilarious. So check it out, it's all hilarious. And it's the Lund Boats Presents the Second Annual Big Dave and Company Blog of the Year Award Brought to You by the Sony PlayStation 3. So that means that it's pretty cool, right? Right. Congratulations Tacky Christmas Yard, you've earned your award.

Our apologies. It's Sony PlayStation 3. Recent Eurpoean Anti-trust rulings forced us to end our sponsorship relationship with the good people at Microsoft.
