Everyone seems to love to be entertained during timeouts of games. I prefer to take that time for a well-timed bathroom break or to freshen up by cold beverage or buy a second heaping helping of BBQ nachos. But I am probably in the minority. In any case, Memphis teams never fail to offer a great value with fantastic entertainment during my bathroom breaks. So this year we created a new M Awards category to honor the entertainment. Congrats to the Memphis Tigers Dance Team for being the first-ever winners of Best In-Game Entertainment, with the Beale Street Flippers coming in a not-so-close second place.
Memphis Tigers Dance Team, First Place: 38.30%
Beale Street Flippers, Second Place: 22.49%
Grizzlies Grannies and Grandpas, Third Place: 19.76%
Best Write-in Vote: Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey
