Hey guys, we have our first multiple award winner of the 2011 M Awards. FedExForum has done it again. This time it is for Favorite Sporting Venue. This one however should be no surprise. FedExForum has won this one before. The only thing more impressive is that they won by more than 50% and garnered nearly 70% of all votes. Incredible. Can this lead increase next year? Here are a few suggestions to clinch this one next year. First, lower beer prices and second… oh, who am I kidding, just lower beer prices. You guys over there have lowered ticket prices and offered all kinds of specials and ticket packages, but the only problem I see is the through-the-roof beer prices. Get on that, and we can engrave your award in bronze next year.
FedExForum, First Place: 69.62%
AutoZone Park, Second Place: 13.27%
Desoto Civic Center, Third Place: 6.78%
Best Write-in Vote: The Pyramid
So what do you think, Memphis? Did you get it right? Is FedExForum really the best sporting venue in Memphis? Does it beat watching a game on your couch? What is best reason to attend a game there? Are the beer prices too high or am I crazy? Should they sell big cans of PBR? Tell us what you think in the comments below. And look for another winner tomorrowl. Here are the winners so far…
