    You guys voting for him obviously haven't read one of his rants in a game thread when things are going badly...

    He's the most bi-polar poster of the year......

    I had to go with Mal on this one, before the year even started he swore to me he'd make the best of this year regardless of what happens, and I think he did. He even got season tickets this year.

    But thanks to whoever nominated me, I tried to be positive as much as I could this year, even though it was hard sometimes.

    Wow, I didn't even realize I'd been nominated.

    I'm a little confused that people would think I'm a sunshiner, considering how few games I thought we'd win.

    But I'm honored, I guess.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I really like DD's attitude, but I have to go with Mal.

    He truly puts a pragmatic positive spin on many topics.

    Debating with Mal got me the darksider nom I think, that's just how sunshiner he is. Look at his preseason predictions for example. All year I've tried to convince him that he had unreasonable faith in the team and he only somewhat let up down the stretch when the final results became inevitable.

    Of the positive people he's the top, for better and worse.

    Much like you darksiders, I consider myself a realist. What puts me on the side of the light and you in shadows, sir, is how we approach the reality that we see in front of us.

    It's hard for me to pick a more worthy sunshiner than OnlyPacersLeft.

    Mal wanted to be a sunshiner but reality came crashing down leaving him worn out and worn down far too soon.

    UncleBuck??? UB's no sunshiner. He may stick with the team through thick and thin but he's not able to overlook problems to find the sunshine in any situation.

    Anthem? He might end up the last JO supporter in the world but I don't see him needing shades any time soon.

    Duke? Interesting choice but Duke seems more "up with life" and generally cheerful... but he has only shown glimpses of being true Sunshiner when it comes to the team.

    Pacergirl needs to post more for consideration.

    Indianapolis_girly is another that just doesn't seem to be able to find the sunshine just around every cloud enough and also try and point it out to others to the degree that would get my vote.

    Soup and Will Galen don't cut it either. Will might prefer happy talk from the local press but he's accepted his share of reality... and Soup hasn't carried the sunshine flag proudly enough for my vote either.

    OnlyPacersLeft was right there everyday explaining our playoff chances and finding scenarios until the end that would've had the team in the playoffs. I don't recall OPL ever arguing with anyone over his positions regardless of any ridicule that might've been directed his way as he cheered and rooted for the team and refused to 'not believe' until the magic number was exhausted.

    He didn't sit quietly with his fingers crossed. He valiantly posted his hopes and predictions for the team. Every game wasn't another opportunity to move up in the draft order for him, it was an opportunity to see the Pacers begin the win streak that would carry them into the playoffs.

    And he wasn't predicting a playoff flameout either. He had high hopes of knocking out whichever team it would be that we'd face.

    OnlyPacersLeft gets my vote as Sunshiner of the Year.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Likewise for myself as well.

    I am always in the game threads and not only that but being a blind optimist year after year.

    Thanks for the nominations and the votes!

    Being the Sunshiner of the Year following a losing team in the East isn't just being optimistic, it's being delusional IMO.

    If a banned poster isn't eligible for an award should a poster who changed his name in the middle of the voting still be eligible?

    I'm just sayin'...

    seriously... who's the one that kept rooting on our playoff chances when they were clearly grim? OPL takes this one, imo.

    I wouldn't say The joker is a sunshiner, at least in the movie he's not, or at least he doesn't appear to be......

    It's way better than posts that spew vile and hate like some do when the Pacers lose. Which means Sunshiner's don't take the Tums some do, plus we're happier than most.
