You choose the Crush of the Year



This blog is a cheertatorship, not a cheerocracy, but every now and then I like to throw my dear readers a bone. Usually during this time of the year, I reflect upon all of the previous Crushes of the Week and choose one women who best exemplifies what it means to be a Crush* and crown her the Crush of the Year. But for 2008, I'm going to let you folks select the CotY.

So, here are the rules:
1) Vote by leaving the name of your pick in the comment section to this post. No votes via e-mail, text, phone, other posts' comments, or other methods will be counted. I do this so there'll be a virtual paper trail of clear intentions**.
2) No write-ins.
3) You may only vote once.
4) Only the candidates listed below are eligible.
5) Should no Crush receive a plurality/majority of the votes, I shall choose the CotY (and I already have one in mind).
6) Voting ends when this post leaves the front page of the blog.

With that said, here are the eligible Crushes for 2008:So, go ahead and vote! Rally your friends, family, and co-workers to vote for your favorite Crush. Then check back in a week or so to see who reigned supreme.

*Don't ask me to verbalize exactly what those qualities are.
**This dimishes the potential risk of electing an unqualified sketch comedian to such a lofty position. But that's kooky talk. What kind of whacked out people would actually vote someone like that into office?

This is a tough call. I'm torn between Anne Hathaway, January Jones, Alicia Witt and Christina Hendricks. They're all so darn cute!

Okay, here goes. I'm going to go with...[holding breath]... Christina Hendricks.

Christina Hendricks. Gotta go Red.

Man, looks like a lot of love for Christina Hendricks. I'm going for Anne Hathaway. People used to say I looked like her. Now she's hot and I'm well...old.

My second vote would be for mid 90's alternachicks, just for old times sake.

I guess I'm the oddball...

Leryn Franco, and I didn't even have to think about it.

countparkula said...

i dont even know who christina hendricks is. so let me dissent...

although of course i'm a longtime fan of both jennie finch and the hot words girl.

its sarah palin's year. babe of the year, sure.

in 2009 i'd like to see a nomination for "la la" from the tiki bar tv podcast. there is none cuter.

I am staying out of the voting and commenting on the candidates, so as not to influence others, but felt I should tell my brother that Lala is ineligible in the future, as she's already been a Crush (back in 2005).

Christina Hendricks.

SBN1 said...

wait? so we can vote twice now?

Sheeeeeeeit, Christina Hendricks.

spydrz said...

I found my second ballot in the trunk of a voting official in suburban St. Paul.

Not usually a fan of the red heads, but Chrisina Hendricks may have made me a believer in the firecrotches.

i'm not voting here, but just voicing my pleasure that i remember now who christina hendricks is from her appearances in firefly and back when i saw those episodes (pre-marriage) i would've DEF voted for her. so i'm glad she's ahead and not some other tramp (or vp pick).

is it fair to say your definition of a cutie is fundamentally diff than mine? my CotY would be my baby, of course. yours, to be crass, would make one jizz in their pants.

The Dubin said...

I'm gonna say Alicia Witt.

SBN1 said...

Micah, jasdye said Christina Hendricks; mark it down.

SBAP/El Rojo said...

Christina Hendricks. At last, El Rojo has spoken.

jasdye said...

i think the people (and certainly reg) have spoken. so can we kill this and release the micah world top whatever albums already?

Mehrdad1 said...

Alicia Witt wins by a hair, because she played a stripper in 2008 on Two and a Half Men.

SBN1 said...

I actually saw that episode...it was pretty good until she got religion and stopped dressing like a stripper.

looks like the ginger beavers are going to take first and second place in the voting.

Veronica Lodge said...

cheertatorship, I love it!!!!

Can I vote for myself to be added to the list!

srah said...

Is it too late to vote? I pick Marketa Irglova. Which of the other ladies on the list has been featured in MARY WORTH???

sbmf said...

Christina Hendricks it is.

werda said...

Hands down, my crush was Sarah Palin.
