Our sports blogs face serious challenges in these troubled times. But once again, 10 Spot readers have shown that they’re prepared to step across the aisle, while still finding their seats before the game starts again so nobody has to yell, “Down in front!”

In other words, here are the winners of November’s WYOJ contest:
