It's on ... The P. Willie nickname challenge

***update*** Well, it was on. Apparently, The Bee's forum section, in which the vote was located, was corrupted last night and was bringing down our server. Who would corrupt an innocent forum? Who would try to rig an election?I have two suspects in mind -- Karl Rove and Matt Maiocco. Hopefully, this will be resolved (by someone way smarter than me) in a timely manner. Sorry for the snafu

The good news: Registering should limit everyone to one vote, which ought to prevent some of the eager beavers out there from stuffing the ballot box. We'll keep the polls open for a few days at which point we'll begin the inevitable debate over who originally came up with the winning entry ....

Matt was born in Blacksburg, Va., and attended the University of Virginia. He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
