** PLEASE NOTE: Nominations close on Friday, February 9 **

Remember 2006? It wasn’t long ago that…

Samuel Alito was confirmed, Mariah Carey won 3 grammy awards, Canada won 24 medals in the 2006 Winter Olympics, Andre Agassi retired, Democrats won control of both houses of the U.S. Congress, and legendary singer James Brown died.

And, lest we forget, the Bloggernacle had its own moments of glory.
