Fox News Loves You Too.JPG


Congratulations, fellow Time "Person Of The Year!" You're so fantastic that FoxSports columnist Kevin Hench has also named you "Fan of the Year in 2006." It's been a big year for you, really, but you've earned it — watching YouTube videos, blogging, stealthily bookmarking pages on MySpace and Facebook — not to mention enduring "bad calls, bad players, bad coaching, bad management, bad teams." Patient and virtuous, you all deserve the top spot, from the Dallas Mavericks fan (oh, those NBA finals and oh, their refs!) to the New York Yankees fan (still waiting for A-Rod to finally slug it home) to "the diehard Phil Mickelson fan" (yes, you do exist, and man are you fun) to the ever-suffering Seattle Seahawks fan, Mets fan, Gonzaga fan and fans of whatever team ended up losing in that college basketball tournament that Duke always seems to win (but which it didn't this year so, let's add "Duke fan" to the list). Congratulations — you have earned the proud and highly unique honor of sharing this prestigious designation with everyone else in the world. Yes, you.

The home page references the Time cover where it blurbs the column ("If it works for Time, it works for us...") but the actual column makes no mention of the high-profile inspiration. It does, however, mention every freaking sports team known to man.
