Voting for Ballot Four ended July 26th, 2009. Results can be found here.
Welcome to the fourth official ballot of the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame!
So far in our brief history at GSNHOF we've had just three inductions, which is awesome, but not nearly the amount I thought we'd get when we first started. Maybe it's just because so many of the names are so good that it's hard to get a consensus, but I'm hoping ballot four brings us a few more inductees to join Rusty Kuntz, God Shammgod, and Dick Trickle as the enshrined Truly Great Names.
If any ballot has the potential to add multiple great names to the upper echelon of our hall, it's this one. Old favorites like Wonderful Terrific Monds and Lucious Pusey seek just a little more support to enter the Hall. Last ballot's top vote getters, Misty Hyman and Destiny Frankenstein, hope for a little more support. And newcomers like Manli Wang and Fair Hooker are looking for the upset, hoping to shock the world and enter the hall on their first try.
So now it is time to vote on ballot four. Rules are simple. Vote for at least one player, but no more than ten players. Vote either in the comments section of this post OR by emailing us. If there's a name you think is hilarious that you'd like to be eligible for future voting, let me know. I have a list of about 200 other great names that I pick from for each nomination, but there's always more great names out there. Lastly, you probably want to know what it takes to get into the Hall. Well based on Ballot One, the current percentages are:
55% or More of the Ballots - Inducted into the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame
20%-55% - Stay on the Ballot for the next round of voting
20% or Less of the Ballots - No longer eligible for the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame
That basically covers it. So without further adieu, here's your Ballot. Vote classy, GSNHOF readers:
Wonderful Terrific Monds the Third
Grlenntys Chief Kickingstallionsims Jr.
Nana Papa Yaw Dwene Mensah-Bonsu
Kirby Dar Dar
Kenesaw Mountain Landis
Prince Octopus Dzanie
