2011 Gentlemen of the Year Crowned

The suspense is killing me.  After a long, arduous, and gentlemanly process, the 2011 Gentlemen of the Year have been crowned.  Unlike last year, the Gentlemen have chosen a Gentleman and the People have chosen a separate Gentleman.  Despite the split, both winners are truly deserving of their respective titles.

New Year’s Eve 2011

New Year’s Eve is the most overrated holiday ever. Everyone knows this and admits it yet everyone still makes a big deal of it. As the day drew near, Ostrowe and Rick had no clue what they were going to do. Being the only single members of the CoG, they did not have the luxury/burden of blindly following their lady friends thus making it a perfect excuse for a random adventure night. What follows is post event running diary. As per usual I have exaggerated everything.

As of Thursday, Rick and Ostrowe did not have plans. Rick combed the web through a myriad of expensive and ungentlemanly options and came across an UWS pub crawl for $30 bucks. Not knowing anything other than NYE house parties, this seemed like a fair deal and would provide a bit of structure for the evening. Eventually, they purchased tickets Friday night and spent Saturday debating who would print them out

While they half watch the Indiana/OSU basketball game, they try to figure out why they are the only single CoG members. The dynamic duo has mixed feelings on the evening

Gentleman of the Year – People’s Vote Championship

The most exciting time of the Gentlemanly Year is nearing a conclusion.  However, that means we are about to crown the 2011 Gentlemen of the Year. Unlike last year, and 2008, there is no opportunity for an undisputed GotY.  The final of the Gentlemen’s Vote is between Rick, the 2008 Undisputed GotY and the ever gentlemanly Eddie O.  Oddly enough, Eddie O lost in the first round of the People’s Vote to Tim Tebow who has proved to be a force to be reckoned with.  He has plowed his way to the final and faces Joyce, the 2009 People’s Gentleman.  Joyce is attempting to become the first ever two time winner, but he comes into the matchup as the underdog.  However, never underestimate the Wild Card.  Now it is time for the People to pick their Gentleman. Joyce v Tebow. Who do ya got?
