The Nominations are In!

We received an excellent crop of nominations this year. With last year's runners up, the 2013 ballot will include 37 candidates, which I believe is a record! Only ten can make it into the 2013 class, so the competition should be stiff! Without further ado, here are your first five candidates:
  1. 1986 Mets
  2. The Avett Brothers
  3. Kirsten Bakis
  4. Mel Brooks
  5. Captain Kangaroo
Please use the comments section to discuss the various candidates and their contributions to Big Pink Culture. Check back tomorrow for five more nominees!
