So the tournament’s not over ’til Monday night, but it’s all over for the Know-Nothing-No-Downside-Not-Much-Upside pool-contest-thingie. That’s because the two teams playing for the finals are UConn and Kentucky, which NONE OF US PICKED. So this is the final result.
me, K: 57
YB, Seth: 56
Yes, Leaf, you can still be last. And well, either basketball is stoopid or we are, since we’re all done already. And yes, for the second year in a row, YuHK won it all. DUDE, I just gave him his prize yesterday for LAST YEAR. Well anyway, congratulations!
Winners and prizes, to the best of my memory. If I got it wrong, please correct me. Yes the prizes really are that lame. Except mine. :)
