It’s been almost a month since I announced the “Who Will Be Jim” contest, and we’re ready to crown the winners! Ok, so there aren’t any actual “winners,” much like in a soccer game. Except that sometimes people do win in soccer. So maybe that wasn’t the best analogy. The special prize for those of you who participated in giving us your thoughts on who could play Jim Henson and Company is getting to see your name in print in a Muppet Fan blog. Congrats!

Now let’s get to the Jims (and Franks and Jerrys and Richards, etc)!
