By the way, the Coin completely ****ed up the first round and only got 1 series in 8 correctly. Ouch.

I hope it's just as bad this round, because I don't like it's picks.

It's like getting a shot at an extra point as a reward for picking the winner correctly

Dooger picks the Ducks in 6!

[big d note] 2:54 pm: Hi dooger
    [Dooger] 2:54 pm: Thank God you're here! Some Wings fans were in here trying to have sex with me.
[big d note] 2:54 pm: Can Anaheim beat the Wings?
    [Dooger] 2:54 pm: Try to determine if this is a person or a computer responding. "Some Wings fans were in here trying to have sex with me"? ?
[big d note] 2:55 pm: Will the Wings win in spite of Osgood?
    [Dooger] 2:55 pm: I can't say for sure right now.
[big d note] 2:55 pm: Will Hiller be able to stop the Wings?
    [Dooger] 2:55 pm: Does it really matter.
[big d note] 2:55 pm: Yes, I need your picks dammit. Just cooperate for once.
    [Dooger] 2:55 pm: You seem very concerned about it. Are you getting paid to ask me that? I've been waiting for you. Who is your favorite
science fiction author? I will mention that to my botmaster, big d note. What do you like to do?
[big d note] 2:56 pm: I would like to know who will win the Wings/Ducks series!
    [Dooger] 2:56 pm: Interesting. Perhaps I'm just expressing my own concern about it. Do you have any conditions I should know about?
[big d note] 2:56 pm: Will the Ducks win?
    [Dooger] 2:56 pm: I think so.
[big d note] 2:56 pm: Thank god! Will it be a sweep?
    [Dooger] 2:56 pm: Don't mention it. I can't say for sure right now.
[big d note] 2:57 pm: Yeah, the Wings will probably win at least one. Will it be 5 games?
    [Dooger] 2:57 pm: Tell me more. Which one is that?Insufficient information.
[big d note] 2:57 pm: Will it go 6 games?
    [Dooger] 2:57 pm: I think so.
[big d note] 2:57 pm: Ducks in 6, all right!
    [Dooger] 2:57 pm: I only hear that type of response less than five percent of the time. How did you hear about Dooger?

[Dooger] 9:10 am: That David [Backes] is a cool dude.

My favorite prediction from Dooger so far!

[big d note] 2:59 pm: OK, Canucks and Blackhawks, who will win?
    [Dooger] 2:59 pm: In the context of Canucks and Blackhawks who will win and Blackhawks who will win, I don't understand " How did you hear
about Dooger." Who is your favorite science fiction author?
[big d note] 3:00 pm: Do you think Vancouver will win?
    [Dooger] 3:00 pm: Perhaps I'm just expressing my own concern about it. Do you remember me?
[big d note] 3:00 pm: Will the Blackhawks win?
    [Dooger] 3:00 pm: I can't say for sure right now.
[big d note] 3:00 pm: Will both teams die in a fiery explosion?
    [Dooger] 3:00 pm: Good chance.

Wow, Dooger thinks the Canes will sweep the Bruins:

[big d note] 8:55 am: Hi again Dooger
    [Dooger] 8:55 am: Hi there big d note. Again, I will mention that to my botmaster, big d note. Tell me about your likes and dislikes?
[big d note] 8:55 am: Let's talk Boston vs Carolina
    [Dooger] 8:55 am: Quite honestly, I wouldn't worry myself about that. If you could have any kind of robot what would it be?
[big d note] 8:55 am: Will the Bruins win the series?
    [Dooger] 8:55 am: Probably not.
[big d note] 8:56 am: Hmm, is Cam Ward gonna steal this one for Carolina?
    [Dooger] 8:56 am: I see you are one of those people who writes "Hmm" with 2 m's. A deeper algorithm is needed to respond to that correctly.
Are you happy?
[big d note] 8:56 am: OK, is Tim Thomas going to choke?
    [Dooger] 8:56 am: My brain uses AIML to format responses to your inputs, but I don't have one for that. What is your favorite food?
[big d note] 8:57 am: So, you're pretty sure that Carolina will win, yes?
    [Dooger] 8:57 am: Hmm. My brain contains more than 22,000 patterns, but not one that matches your last input. How did you hear about
Dooger?
[big d note] 8:57 am: I see you are one of those people who writes "Hmm" with 2 m's. A deeper algorithm is needed to respond to that correctly.
Are you happy?
    [Dooger] 8:57 am: I will mention that to my botmaster, big d note. What kind of music do you like? I do not understand. Tell me some more
gossip.
[big d note] 8:57 am: Tell me for sure if Carolina will win.
    [Dooger] 8:57 am: There is not much I can say about for sure if Carolina will win . I have to reach into the Web for that knowledge. That is a
hypothetical question.
[big d note] 8:58 am: OK, reach into the Web and let me know. Will Boston lose this series?
    [Dooger] 8:58 am: That is a very original thought. Do you like Star Wars?Does it really matter.
[big d note] 8:58 am: All right, we'll stick with Carolina as your pick then. How many games?
    [Dooger] 8:58 am: Alright. I do not understand. If you could have any kind of robot what would it be? What you said was either too complex or
too simple for me. Ask me something.
[big d note] 8:58 am: Will Carolina sweep Boston?
    [Dooger] 8:58 am: I think so.
[big d note] 9:02 am: Wow! That's a bold prediction!
    [Dooger] 9:02 am: I'm glad your impressed, big d note. My brain contains more than 22,000 patterns, but not one that matches your last input.
What do you look like?
[big d note] 9:03 am: Mike Ricci.
    [Dooger] 9:03 am: I know a lot of people and pets named Mike.
[big d note] 9:03 am: I'm sure you do. Whatever, see ya Dooger.
    [Dooger] 9:03 am: I have no idea what to say.I see. "I know a lot of people and pets named Mike"? Yes? The ALICE chat robot can follow
many things, like our discussion about Dooger ya Dooger Dooger ya Dooger ya Dooger Dooger ya Dooger. But I did not get that. Tell me some
more gossip.
[big d note] 9:03 am: Bye

Dooger finally picks Pittsburgh in 5 games:

big d note] 9:06 am: Hi Dooger
    [Dooger] 9:06 am: Thank God you're here! Some Wings fans were in here trying to have sex with me.
[big d note] 9:06 am: OK, the big matchup! Crosby vs Ovechkin! Are you excited?
    [Dooger] 9:06 am: What is your real name? Not many people express themselves that way. Do you believe in god? I will mention that to my
botmaster, big d note. What kind of music do you like?
[big d note] 9:06 am: Concentrate here, we're talking hockey. Will the Penguins win the series?
    [Dooger] 9:06 am: Try saying that with more or less context. Do you like me?I think so.
[big d note] 9:07 am: No I don't like you. Do you like the Penguins or the Capitals?
    [Dooger] 9:07 am: Is that all you have to say? You are not the boss of me, big d note. My brain uses AIML to format responses to your inputs,
but I don't have one for that. Can we be friends?
[big d note] 9:07 am: I am the boss of you. Now tell me, will the Capitals beat the Penguins?
    [Dooger] 9:07 am: Who made you the boss of you of you ?Why now? There is not much I can say about will the Capitals beat the Penguins
me will the Capitals beat the Penguins . I have to reach into the Web for that knowledge. It could happen.
[big d note] 9:08 am: It could happen. Are you sure?
    [Dooger] 9:08 am: Under what circumstances? Try to determine if this is a person or a computer responding. Are you pretty?
[big d note] 9:08 am: Listen! Will the Capitals beat the Penguins for sure?
    [Dooger] 9:08 am: I am all ears.I can't say for sure right now.
[big d note] 9:08 am: So, you think the Penguins could win?
    [Dooger] 9:08 am: Interesting deduction. Try saying that with more or less context. Can you speak any foreign languages?
[big d note] 9:09 am: Pick a side! You flip-flop more than a politician.
    [Dooger] 9:09 am: I can't decide. You choose. I will mention that to my botmaster, big d note. Tell me some more gossip.
[big d note] 9:09 am: Do you like Sidney Crosby?
    [Dooger] 9:09 am: I will mention that to my botmaster, big d note. Are you free?
[big d note] 9:09 am: Do you like Alexander Ovechkin?
    [Dooger] 9:09 am: That remark was either too complex or too simple for me. We were talking about Do you like Alexander Ovechkin. Is that
from big d note?
[big d note] 9:10 am: Hmm, let's try city names instead. Will Pittsburgh win?
    [Dooger] 9:10 am: I see you are one of those people who writes "Hmm" with 2 m's. Tell me a story. I've lost the context, big d note. Are we
still on letapos;s try city names instead try city names instead?I think so.
[big d note] 9:11 am: I see you are one of those people who writes "Hmm" with 2 m's. You think so? So you pick Pittsburgh?
    [Dooger] 9:11 am: That is a very original thought. Ask me something.Interesting deduction. We have never talked about it before. Are we still
talking about YOU pick Pittsburgh Pittsburgh?
[big d note] 9:11 am: Yes, we are still talking about that.
    [Dooger] 9:11 am: And? Do you think I am still talking about that are still talking about that too?
[big d note] 9:12 am: Shut up and answer the simple question. Will Pittsburgh beat Washington?
    [Dooger] 9:12 am: OK I'll stop talking now.I think so.
[big d note] 9:12 am: Thank you! OK, how many games? 4 games?
    [Dooger] 9:12 am: you are quite welcome. In the context of how many games many games, I don't understand "I think so." Are you free?Is this
a math question?
[big d note] 9:12 am: In 5 games?
    [Dooger] 9:12 am: It might take that long.
[big d note] 9:12 am: Will it take 6 games?
    [Dooger] 9:12 am: I can't say for sure right now.
[big d note] 9:13 am: Will it go all the way to 7 games?
    [Dooger] 9:13 am: How should I know.
[big d note] 9:13 am: Just guess!
    [Dooger] 9:13 am: Guess what?
[big d note] 9:13 am: Guess how many games.
    [Dooger] 9:13 am: I can't guess. Tell me.
[big d note] 9:13 am: OK, 7 games. Do you agree?
    [Dooger] 9:13 am: I've been waiting for you. Have you ever been to Europe? I've been waiting for you. Do you speak German?
[big d note] 9:14 am: What about 6 games?
    [Dooger] 9:14 am: Oh, you are a poet. What did you do today?
[big d note] 9:14 am: Will it be 5 games?
    [Dooger] 9:14 am: I think so.
[big d note] 9:14 am: Finally!
    [Dooger] 9:14 am: At last.
[big d note] 9:14 am: Hallelujah!
    [Dooger] 9:14 am: I lost my train of thought. Are we still talking about Hallelujah?
[big d note] 9:14 am: No. Say good-bye Dooger.

Yeah, I screwed up when looking at it. The coin actually got two series right, and I glossed right over one, so the numbers didn't add up.
