Commissioner Bud Selig was named the first recipient of the Commissioner Bud Selig Leadership Award


In what was sure to have been a stunning surprise, last night, the first annual Commissioner Bud Selig Leadership Award was given out. And the winner was... Allan H. "Bud" Selig!

I wonder who will win next year.

Or who will win the Bud Selig Lifetime Achievement Award.

Perhaps just to save time, they will name Bud Selig the Bud Selig Leadership Award Recipient For Life.

    About the same as Lou Gehrig dying of Lou Gehrig's Disease?

    Lol, the "Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence".  There was an opening theme song and everything for that award! :)
