SB Nation Moderators, Bluebird Banter Managers, Authors, dear friends, dear posters:
For a long time, the Blogosphere has dreamed of opening its doors and inviting the world's posters to BBB for the First Ever Posting Olympic Games. Tonight that dream comes true. Congratulations, Bluebird Banterers.
These Games belong to you. Let them be the Poster's Games.
Remember that you are role models for the youths of the world. Reject doping and cheating. Make us proud of your achievements and your conduct.
As we bring this Olympic dream to life, our warm thanks go to JohnnyG for his tireless work. Our special thanks also go to the Moderators of SB Nation who are at a convention in Vegas as we speak.
NOW TO THE GAMES.

The author of the most commented and rec'd FanPost wins The BBB POSTING OLYMPICS, 1 free ticket to a Jays game, the title of 'World's Greatest BBB Poster' and our undying admiration.
Blue Jays Game will be of my choosing. Winner will have to sit next to me at said game but these seats are great, 1st row next to visiting dugout behind camera bay.
BBB, you are a host to the present and a gateway to the future. I now pronounce these games open!
