Due to the overwhelming and already quite brilliant response to our Matsuzaka/Igawa Haiku competition, we announce this morning a change to the deadline for entry to the contest: all submissions must be added to the comments field of the original Haiku competion post no later than 11:59 PST tonight, December 23, 2006. Yeah, it's short notice, but, come on, we're talking haikus here, 17 syllables—how much time do you need?
We are also pleased to announce the esteemed jury for this event. We promised big names, and of course we deliver: three titans of the sportsweb whose neutral presence ensures the integrity of this contest:

Competition winners to be announced shortly after Santa's arrival.
