People gather on the sidewalk outside the Chicago Tribune to watch as Kevin Floyd, 30, is named the winner of the newspaper's contest to name former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's memoirs in Chicago, Illinois on March 6, 2009. Kevin Floyd, 30, is to be awarded a beef tongue for his winning entry, Rod and the Giant Impeach, after his entry surged ahead in the final minutes the online contest was open, leading Kass to speculate on Chicago-style election tactics in his column; the beef tongue was awarded "in symbolic anticipation" that the former governor will "sing to the feds."
