You rocked the bleachers across 18 home games. You yelled fuckwords at the TV screen between pulls of Carlsberg on the away dates. You willed New York City FC's Boys in Blue to the fourth-best overall record in Major League Soccer.
And then, when their was but God himself left to cry, you cast your votes for THE HUDDIES.
Thanks to all who participated, including those who pointed out the obvious award nominees that we stupidly left out. Overall, it was a hell of a year in the Five Boroughs, mostly due to you. YOU.
This year, you shut 'em down and opened up shop. Here's to another smashing affair in 2017, yeah?
