And the winner is…

Before I disclose the winner, I have to tell you that a funny thing happened on my way to the poll results this a.m. As I’m drinking my coffee and wiping the sand from my eyes, I notice an email with the subject line “Winner?” in my inbox. The email starts off with “Dead Beatles Freak,” Ummm…err…I think they meant “Dear Beatles Freak”, but then again, I could be wrong. After wishing me a happy new year, this person informs me that my poll did not close at 11:59 p.m. and included a snapshot of the results at oo:oo hours! The interesting thing was that the email itself was time stamped at 7:06 p.m.! LOL Sorry, Dead Follower, that’s not how these things work. The poll was set to close, and did close, at 11:59 p.m. (ET).

It was a tight race and a real nail biter over the past several weeks, but here are the results:
