How about a "Maybe he will survive but he has never really been in 
broadcasting yet Wanabee" award for the likes of Bob Miller? I feel like 
I have been in broadcasting for 15 years at least. I could use an award, 
I have space on the wall for a certificate and the guarantees sound 
good. What do they guarantee BTW?
