Top Ten... reasons the list ain't done yet

I know, I know. You're all asking the same question.

Where is it?

Well, the Top 10 Talkers of 2008 feature is nearing completion. I had hoped to have it up today, but there were a few delays. Actually, there were ten of them. Here they are:

10. The dog ate it.

9. Rod Blagojevich wants more money.

8. The end result was unacceptable, and John, George and Ringo are bringing Phil Spector in for overdubs. They forgot to tell Paul.

7. Alex Bennett hasn't finished writing the rough draft yet (just kidding, just kidding...)

6. Had to be in Alaska for the birth of Tripp Palin.

5. Clint Eastwood movie marathon on AMC ("The Good, The Bad And The Ugly" is a very long flick).

4. Hockey at Wrigley Field? Who'd miss that?

3. Still in denial over the Rod Marinelli firing from the Detroit Lions.

2. Waiting for the outcome of the Coleman/Franken senate race.

And the number one reason...

1. Wasting my time doing stupid Lettermanesque lists like this one.

Rest assured, the list should be up tomorrow. There were a few snags with it. And the process of compiling the results of two polls (the most recent one and the one from November) is a complicated process. In fact, I did spot an error that needed correction (a glaring omission, actually - sorry, Steph). So the results needed another combing over.

In addition, you'll get not one but two lists - one based on votes from all of you and another prepared by yours truly (just like two years ago). Two for the price of one. Cool, huh? So, look for it by tomorrow.

In the meantime, enjoy this early part of 2009. Crappy New Year!
