Guess this has been dropped? Yeah, I know seeing the same stupid teams :detsucks: every year is really boring.

Are we going to get an update at the end at least? :lol:

HA! Got it updated before the finals are over! :lol:

And I updated it from Tampa, FL no less. I rock. 8)

Bah...sorry for the long delay in updates...I have barely had time to monitor the forum lately, much less spend two hours updating the spreadsheet. Been really busy.

I'll come up with something a little more efficient next year for this contest.
In the mean time... hopefully it's a good game 7. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

(If I happen to win this, the 2nd place finisher will win the t-shirt...and I'll be revamping the site store soon, so whoever wins will have a new selection of shirts to choose from)

I'm back from Florida and the final results are in:
http://www.letsgoblues.com/docs/lgb_playoff_challenge_08-09.htm

The winning team of the 2008-2009 LGB Playoff Challenge is....

THE GREY TEAM---110 pts.
ilovegoaliesplits---17 pts.
BF44---25 pts.
fbrockel---23 pts.
Hullie---24 pts.
dmiles2186---21 pts.


The overall winner of the 2008-2009 LGB Playoff Challenge is....

cprice12---32 pts. :ninja:
Since I run the contest and technically probably shouldn't be eligible, the 2nd place finisher wins the t-shirt from the LGB Store (which is currently being renovated).
So...
The 2nd place finisher, and winner of the T-Shirt is...
Sec310K67---27 pts.

I'll be sending the winners their championship signature badges soon.

It was pretty cool that we had three guys correctly predict the exact number of goals scored in the finals, which was 31.

Congratulations guys!
We had a lot of participants this year, which made it pretty interesting.

Next year we'll change it up a little bit in the way everyone submits their picks so there is a lot less work for me to do on the spreadsheet.

I'll be finishing up the renovations in the LGB Store in the coming days, so keep an eye out for that.

If I was cheating, I wouldn't have let SOMEONE'S picks in after the deadline, so as to give myself a better chance to win. Hmmm...who could that have been? Ahem....

Damn, so close. I had the seven games right, just picked the wrong team. Only two goals off on the total count, too- would've put me over the top, easy. :grin:

Curt,

Part the issue with this is that first round picks are so important.

Maybe next year we could make each round count the same number of points or somehow weight it so that even if you missed half the first round picks you weren 't totally eliminated from winning the challenge?

Thanks for doing this for the site.

The only reason the first round is worth more, is because there are more games and the points awarded for each game are the same.
To be honest, and you can disagree if you like, but picking the first round games is more difficult than the later rounds and probably should be worth more.

I'd be happy to discuss any re-structuring that anyone thinks will make things more fun. And like I mentioned earlier in the thread, I'll have a form set up for submitting picks, instead of emailing them to me. Then they would post automatically so everyone could see everyone's picks right away. I was so damn busy this year I had a hard time getting the picks up in a timely manner.
