We were flooded with nerd nominations, but ultimately, we whittled it down to five contenders. We feel that each of these fellas embody something uniquely nerdy about Philly and make this city a radder place. They are passionate, they are smart, and they are ours! Of course, in our eyes, all of these guys are winners, but it's your job to pick one.
You can vote for as many guys as you'd like, but you can only vote once. It's like an SAT question that you don't have to study for. The vote will go until Friday, when we will crown a winner. Read below to meet the nerds.
Honorable mentions go to: weatherman nerd/bow tie aficionado Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz, tech nerd Brian James Kirk, mayoral nerd Mayor Nutter, vegan sXe nerd Klint Kanopka, blogger blowhard nerd Joey Sweeney, sandwich nerd Ben Kessler, rock 'n' roll nerd Joel Flood, party nerd DJ Deejay, and Web developer nerd JP Toto.
