Man of The Year

1. Shepard Fairey
// Barack Obama owes a huge debt of gratitude to Shepard as his graphic practically mobilized an entire army of people to get out and vote. //
2. Barack Obama
// Fairly obvious choice but he gets it for not wilting under the Republican pressure and hopefully he'll be the change we need. //
3. Graeme Smith
// For scoring tons of runs and getting right under the skins of the English and Australians with his tactics and aggressive lead from the front approach. //

Best Clothing Label

1. Rebel8
// I'm a strictly jeans and t-shirt kind of guy and everything from the graphics to the printing techniques to the quality of the overall product has struck a chord with me this year. Truly can do no wrong in my eyes! //
2. Stones Throw
// Bit of an odd choice but with the Parra and Brent Rollins shirts making their way onto the market there wasn't really much doubt that they'd be in here. //
3. adidas
// Everyone who knows me will attest to my being a slave to the trefoil. I do fear that they're going a bit off the boil but we'll see in 2009. //
