The Fall 2012 Hubbie Awards

Alas, it has been quite some time since I've handed out Hubbies - so some of the winners in this round were seen in the summer months.  Somehow I don't think they'll mind the belated bouquet, though - oh and btw, that's Apolo Ohno modeling another possible Hubbie design up top, should we ever get to handing out physical awards!
