Jockies Awards

The nominees for Best Personal Foul are....
  (+4, -1)
(+4, -1)

Who hasn't wished they could give an Academy Award to the soccer player who turned a tap to the shinguard into a writhing display of agony like that seen in Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ? How about the basketball player who takes a light elbow to the chest and falls down as though dead, yes, quite dead, everyone hates me and I'm dead, don't you feel sorry for me? right in the middle of the basketball court?

Well now you can nominate all your favorite athlete-thespians for Jockie Awards. In addition to Best Personal Foul, we have Best Victory Dance, Best Cry unto the Gods after a Bad Referee Call, and for fans, Best Interference during Play, Best Shot to the Head with Drink Cup, and Best Streaking (male & female).

       You must be talking about Vlade Divac of the Lakers. I couldn't stand that drama queen when he played for the Sacramento Kings--and now he's playing for *my* team? Arrrrgh. Anyway, I like your idea.
