Well, we're a month into the crowning of '01 Paloma as the WOTY, some controversy, some groaning of the huge price runup and now lack of availability, but a pick no less that hasn't generated huge reasonable arguments against, even on Ebob if you can believe that.
With that said, WS really should pick a Man/Woman of the Year like Time does, plaster him/her all over the cover, show really embarrasing baby and teen pictures, misquote him/her a time or two, and send 50 copies to his/her mother.
I think for 2003 there would be no argument, PYANG is no doubt, WS's Man of the Year. No other single forumite, on any board, has had a more positive impact on winos from all over the country than Pyang. I think he should be thanked with high honor, for going above and beyond the call of duty, all year long, for the grape.
I know my checkbook is hurting thanks to his endless persuit of expensive grapejuice!
Now I don't know if WS will get with the program and annoit this great honor as it rightfully should be disposed, but I surely would at least like to raise a glass to Pyang for giving this forumite a gift all year long that will not be forgotten.
