Round I Voting Results, Jackson County HOF

Quote of the Day:     

MD: Hey TB, don’t you think 30 is too big of a class?

TB: Yep, I think you’re right. I’ll lower it.

And with that, it was decided in the grand tradition of democracy that the inaugural class of inductees will be limited to those elected on 2/3 of the ballots cast each round for III rounds. Round I is over. There were no unanimous selections, no hanging chads and no dead people participated. Forevermore these men will hold the distinction of being the first men elected to the Jackson County Sports Hall of Fame:

  • Rooster Jones
  • Terrell Buckley
  • Shane Matthews

If you know any of these guys, the committee thinks it would be pretty cool if you would contact them to let them know of this honor and ask them to say/write a few words in this space about what it means to them.

I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.
