Ok, people, we have lots of Best and Worst ideas to vote on. Only problem is, I've discovered that SB Nation only allows 1 poll per fanpost. So I think I'll look into doing a Survey Monkey or other free survey once we decide on our nominees. But we need to get our nominees first - I'm going to leave space for 5 in each category, but we can do more/less if necessary. HOF = Hall of Fame, or playoff nominees
Alright, now the categories after the jump...

So this is already a pretty lengthy fanpost. I will do a separate one for all our SCH-isms since we are an incredibly quirky bunch.
If you have other categories to add, speak up! Once we have nominees for the categories, I'll make a survey. Or if someone else wants to help, let me know. Oh, and try to keep the nominees in the same comment string. Shinkicker started them below...thanks, Shin!!
PS - Try and include links where possible!
