On Friday, the Washington Post Express newspaper published its Best of 2010 list, naming Stephen Strasburg the “best offseason acquisition” of 2010. That category is a bit misleading, since Strasburg was signed in the summer of 2009, but we’ll take it, right?
Ben’s Chili Bowl at Nationals Park was also named “Best Stadium Food.” The Best of 2010 awards were decided by two rounds of reader nominations and voting.
Also, on Thursday evening, the Power 30 Under 30 organization honored young men and women from DC during their awards reception. Ryan Zimmerman was the only winner in the Sports category, though Strasburg was also nominated for the award.
The program recognizes the accomplishments of young professionals who “excel at what they do on their own merit.” They also recognize the importance of “giving back to the community to help those in need.”
On that note, remember that Ryan Zimmerman’s annual ziMS Foundation Gala and Golf Tournament is coming up on October 29 and 30 in Virginia Beach.
