I loved that caption (although it had nothing to do with the pic) and I thought I'd share since we don't have too many news
oh! i forgot to thank you cath for posting the caption. thank you so much!

Ernests is nominated as the Sportsman of the Year in Latvia. Though this award most likely will go to our Olympic gold medalist... The award ceremony will take place on 6th December. There is possibility to vote for him every day (the prize of public sympathies) if anyone wants to do it: http://sports.delfi.lv/gada_balva.php

"Balsot" means "Vote", doesn't it?

well, I guess Deniss also prefers books rather playstation
During futures here in Moscow he was reading books - when some other guys played racing on their mobile phones while waiting for the scheduled match

When I saw this first I thought that Ernie doesn't need to win this because, to be honest, Māris Štrombergs did win a gold medal and it's way more impressive than a QF at a Grand slam. But then I realized that the prize is actually called "The most popular/famous sportsman of Latvia in 2008" and as we all know popularity isn't the same as medals/wins. So I have no problem voting for Ernests

Default Re: Ernests' news thread!

about the voting!
me and my friends were voting for erno and we found that his votes were deducted by the system. at first erno was in the first place then his votes were decreased that he's now about 300 votes behind Māris Štrombergs!
my friend screencaped the results.






does anyone know why is that? can someone, esp.the latvians here contact the website or the organization about this? thanks!! =D

Is this another Gulbistards mystery? I'm sorry but this reminds me of Scooby Doo, I watched it this morning together with my brother

Or maybe they discovered we're an organized voting group? Another possibility is that Maris has friends who hacked the website and stole Erno's votes!

Edit: That was very attentive of you, btw.
