To the entire Destructoid community,
It's been an incredible experience. Throughout the entire night, all the way to 12 midnight PT, you guys, my family, friends, and loved ones kept rooting for me and voting.
This contest seemed to be an even closer race than the actual Presidential election!
Every other minute the competition seemed to be neck and neck, all the way up until the very last 2 minutes. It was then that the valiant efforts of everyone culminated into a successful victory for Sackboy.
Not only did we win in our category, we also had the largest number of TOTAL votes, making my entry the OVERALL winner!
To Dtoid and everyone who read my blog, I can't thank you guys enough for your help. Literally every vote counted, and without your contributions, none of this would've been possible.
I've attached a photo of our victory (beating out that damn Scarecrow)!
Forever Grateful Dtoid Reader

[I also want to add that the competition with the scarecrow was extremely tough, and frankly, a little bit suspicious. Every time my family and friends managed to gather a few more votes, my vote count would steadily increase one by one. However, he would stay neck and neck and jump in spurts to close the gap and maintain a typically 5 vote lead. When I ran out of juice and the votes stopped coming in, he would stop increasing as well.
It was then in the last two minutes that my family and friends who luckily had reserve votes waiting all night that the 9 vote splurge came in to seal the deal.
I don't know if he was using some proxy or VPN but either way, it made the victory all the more greater, to win in the face of anything, cheating or not.]
