Koster Wins MIZZOU B-Ball Grit Award Via Twitter

In a spontaneous vote via TWITTER, Attorney General Chris Koster was crowned winner of the first ever MIZZOU Basketball "Gritty politico" award.
The Notebook conducted the unscientific vote via Twitter Saturday afternoon during the final minutes of the Mizzouri-UConn game, when the Tigers came up short in their quest to win what would have been their first Final Four appearance.

The Notebook asked Twitterers: What Missouri politician most exemplifies the grit and tenacity of MIZZOU basketball this season?

The MIZZOU Basketball "Gritty Politico" award is meant to go to the pol who is "gritty, aggressive, beats expectations, surprises and may start slow, but closes strong."

While Koster came out on top in the voting, Sen. Claire McCaskill and Sen. Kurt Schaefer tied for runner-up. Sens. Jim Lembke and Matt Bartle also received votes, as did Rep. Chris Kelly.

Not in Twitter-land yet?

Who would you cast your "Gritty Politico" vote for?

***ALSO: Due to the Mizzou loss, Sen. Claire McCaskill and Gov. Jay Nixon will both be sending Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd and Governor Jodi Rell a hearty portion of Kansas City Barbeque.
