The Envelopes, Please…

Before we get to the winners, here is a public service announcement. I was told by an authority no less than the guy in charge of ticket sales for the tournament that around 1,000 tickets are left for Sundays semifinals, and fewer than that for Monday’s finals. A sellout for both days is going to occur; it’s just a matter of how quickly. If you are hedging, it’s time to get off the pot.


A few surprises among the award winners. We’ll discuss later.

  1. For the most part, right on the money. Good job CAA, and thanks for the quick report!

  2. nice nod to tony shaver – hope it doesn’t go to his head. see you in richmond, mgl.

  3. Go Rams.

  4. The dearth of Tribers on those 5 all-CAA teams (1-for-25) lends credence to Shaver’s selection. The shaky home stretch didn’t erase the startling progress he made this year.

  5. Tough to go for him over Moss. Also, someone voted for Larranaga?!?!?! What is that about? That is ridiculous. Good to see TJ on the first team. I wish Vlad could have been there too, but its a tough call between him and Shuler.
