This was a really hard choice. If I had known how stiff the competition was going to be I wouldn't have rushed my entry so much. Next year is going to be interesting Cheesy

Man, that was a tough choice, but you got my vote Joe, both because your video told a story (entertainment value) and because of your excellent t-shirt choice (MAJOR style points Grin)

Currently a 4 way tie for 2nd, or does that make all of us in 5th place?

Either a tie for 5th, or a tie for 2nd with the next place being 6th. I usually prefer the latter method because 2 votes would be the second highest count at the moment.

I'm not gonna lie, I was hoping you'd be around for your own entry, but c'est la vie. I remember one of your watermelon slinging videos that was impressive.
