A random time period that occurs each year at varing lengths. Any person born within this time period is granted the powers of the awesome. For instance, in the year 1985, the year of the Awesome spanned 4/21 - 5/27, thus everyone born during then was Awesome.
1985 also marks the coming of the truly Awesome, kind of like the Christ of the Awesome if you will.
Tom and Duffy were born in the year of the Awesome, therefore women flock to them.
