That's the best you got? Where are Hohler's distinguished awards for his lifetime service to journalism?
Boom's facts: 3 awards for one article, nothing more. The awards:
John Curley center for sports
Sports society's true heroes
Fred M. Hechinger grand prize
These are UR several prestigious journalism awards?
This is what you call prestigious?!!!
I said your standards were low, but now I see they are bottom of the barrel.
Here are true examples of prestigious awards in journalism:
- Dick Schaap Award for Outstanding Journalism recipient in 2006.
- In 1996 Ryan won the Curt Gowdy Award from the Basketball Hall of Fame.
- In 2000 he was the AP National Sportswriter of the Year.
- He has been named the NSSA’s National Sportswriter of the Year four times (2000, 2007, 2008, 2009).
- He is also a member of the College Basketball Writers and New England Basketball Halls of Fame.
He was voted the National Sportswriter of the Yearin 1989, 1990 and 1993 by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association. He has also been awarded an honorary Poynter Fellow from Yale University.
January 9, 2009 was proclaimed Peter Gammons day in the City of Boston. The proclamation was made by Michael Ross, president of the Boston City Council at the Hot Stove Cool Music Sports Roundtable at Fenway Park. 2010 marked the 10th anniversary of Hot Stove Cool Music, a charitable concert benefiting the Foundation To Be Named Later. At this event, Theo Epstein, Vice President and General Manager of the Boston Red Sox, announced a new scholarship in Gammons' name. The "Peter Gammons - Foundation To Be Named Later Scholarship presented by RISO" enables select Boston Public Schools students to attend college who otherwise might not have the chance.
It's quite plain to see why you think that garbage by Hohler was "fair". It's that type of scum that justifies UR cheap, groundless PED accusations.
You are the only poster low enough to use an internet site as a handle.
Does this kind of shoddy self-promotion run rampant in Oceanside?
