      No Carlo, Justin lost. It was great he was nominated.

      Glenn Anderson Leadership Award
      Our table hockey supporter, Justin Goldman did not win, losing out to The Hockey News' (THN) Darryl Dobbs, THN's expert hockey fantasy columnist http://www.thehockeynews.com/listings/45-Fantasy-Pool-Look-Column.html and founder of Dobber Hockey, hockey fantasy website, http://www.dobberhockey.com/

      Justin Goldman is the founder of The Hockey Guild, http://TheHockeyGuild.com - all things hockey in Colorado , and The Goalie Guild, http://thegoalieguild.com/ , is also columnist at DobberHockey, School of Block penning a column every week, giving you the fantasy spin on goaltenders, hosts the monthly radio show Dobber Nation, and does Colorado Avalanche analysis spots on local Denver radio stations Mile High Sports 1510 AM and the station that "Rocks the Rockies", heavy metal station 106.7 KBPI.

      Justin also created and manages the annual Quest for the Crown charity hockey festival, which includes the Top of the Mountain table hockey event.

      Hockey Writer of the Year Award
      Someone I've quoted at THH a few times, e.g. in the thread "Playoff Trash Talk," is Yahoo!'s Greg Wyshynski, aka "PuckDaddy." He won Glenn Anderson's "Hockey Writer of the Year" award. Puck Daddy's webpage http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy

      By the way, in doing some research I found and watched Glenn Anderson's Hockey Hall of Fame acceptance speech, which I found really moving. Great speech! I included the link at my thread at THH (follow link below).

      > I am proud to announce that my friend, our friend and supporter, Justin Goldman President of the Hockey Guild, has been recognized as an outstanding new voice for hockey. He is nominated for the "Glenn Anderson Leaderhip in Writing Award" to be presented this week at the NHL Awards events and ceremonies in Las Vegas, NV.
      >
      > The Glenn Anderson Leaderhip in Writing Award - "will be awarded to the writer who demonstrates a desire to help build and grow the popularity of ice hockey, both throughout North America and across the globe."
      >
      > Justin has done just that by being a friend to us, helping us, the table hockey (TH) community, by including and featuring table hockey as one of the events ("Top of the Mountain") at his annual "Quest for the Crown" series of all-things-hockey- related events held in Denver, Colorado. "Quest for the Crown," raises money for both local needs (usually children) in the noble fight against cancer and the NHL's charity, "Hockey Fights Cancer."
      >
      > Justin, has included and promoted TH in his writing, websites and on his Denver area sports radio and television spots with well-known sports journalists and personalities.
      >
      > In turn, some of us have supported Justin by: making donations to me in person while up at tournaments in Quebec, loaning or supplying boards at a discount, attending the events in Denver, helping out when I couldn't make it to Denver this year, helping me work with Stiga USA, custom Coleco www.CanadaHockeyTab le.com or getting the Chexx game ready for tournament play, or promoting QC and TOTM on our websites and chat boards such as www.TableHockeyHeav en.com, www.NYCTHA.us, or http://games. groups.yahoo. com/group/ TableHockeyTaver n/ or http://games. groups.yahoo. com/group/ ccth/.
      > I "thank all of you!" / "Merci Beaucoup!"
      >
      > From the moment we first communicated with each other out in Denver to work together on the first annual QC event, I believed our vision would promote table hockey's standing with the public and with the NHL. I think this confirms that thought. The next step is for more of us to step forward to increase our support as a community as the "Quest for the Crown" and "Top of the Mountain" move forward.
      >
      > Whether Justin wins this award or not, I hope you'll recognize his tireless work and contributions on our behalf and on the behalf of others most needy by supporting this event next year!
