The Sea Dogs swept all three categories they were nominated for. Team captain Jonathan Huberdeau was named Twitter Person of the Year, SeaDogsTV picked up Hottest YouTube honours, and some website called Station Nation was named Coolest Blog.
“I’d like to thank all the Sea Dogs fans and followers that voted and supported us this year,” said SN creator Jamie Tozer. “Obviously, this award would not have been possible without the help of Bert, Marc, Cameron and Andrew. Also, a big thanks to the Sea Dogs for their support.
“I’d also like to say thank you to the 2012 Memorial Cup selection committee, Martin Mondou and the Cataractes organization, and QMJHL commissioner Gilles Courteau for giving us unlimited amounts of material to write about.”
Tozer was nominated for Twitter Person of the Year last year. This is SN’s first Salty award.
“Actually, does this blog post make this site uncool? What do you think? Maybe you shouldn’t include this quote in the post.”
There was some controversy on the interweb as nobody that writes for SN showed up at the awards. Rumors began to swirl that Tozer refused to show because of human rights issues or some other political reason that Tim Thomas told him about. I figured he was spending the evening getting himself mentally prepared for the Rob Faulds show tomorrow tonight. We may never know the real answer.
According to documents obtained by SN, Tozer did not sign his nominee card before The Saltys began tonight. The Saltys Committee is currently investigating the matter and SN could be stripped of the award, giving the win to the runner-up. All individual statistics would remain intact, however.
“I feel comfortable with the situation,” said Tozer, speaking as if this was all made up. “So what if I didn’t sign a piece of paper. As if that would actually get a win removed from someone. Ha!”
