NoMich, Mr. "don't get used to me being at the top of the list" takes the crown, edging Spitzengle by picking the both the team and the number of games.

tommytrump lost his Costanza in the Finals, also by picking both the team and number of games. Congrats to Demophon for pulling out the Costanza in the last round. (DrJ and ursus didn't play every round...)

Special mention to Howard_T and BoKnows, who swept the Finals...good job, guys...

Thanks for playing everyone, it's been fun...

I just want to let you know I finished 3rd and didnt get to make my picks for the conference finals due to lack of weekend internet capabilities. Dam scheduling


Thanks for running the show Meat.

I am a Toronto Maple Leaf fan.

I couldn't even get losing right.

Thank you for running the pool, Meat.

Meaty-look more closely at the predictions for the finals. I thought I'd get more than zero points for picking the Hawks in six with Toews winning the Connie.

Dunno how I missed that. I had you with no picks at all, so I must've just spaced on your picks. So sorry...

With time and many, many counseling sessions, I just might restore some semblance of normalcy to my life. Otherwise, no worries at all; thanks a bunch for putting it all together!

So does that put tahoe in a tie with Spitz for second place then?

Fuck all y'all! I'm the motherfuckin winner of this shit! Oh, and thanks for doing this, saber made of meat. Good times!

I really don't know how I swept the finals, since I generally had no idea what I was doing. I picked Toews for MVP because his name was the easiest to spell. Many thanks for running this, Meat.

Hell yes, and I get a belated honorable (honourable in Canada) mention for also sweeping the finals.

Also NoMich, along with the first place trophy, you win the first annual Weedy McSmokey/KerryCindy/DudeLebowski award for all-out commitment to celebratory profanity. FuckinA, man.

I was half-expecting him to go into a Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back-esque rant, and tell us we "are the ones who are the ball-lickers"...

And yes, special honorable (no 'u', this is America) mention to tahoemoj for sweeping the Finals, thus leapfrogging all of us other boneheads into second place with Spitz...congrats...

Thanks for organising, Meat Man.

Nicely done y'all. I had nothing all playoffs. And I was soooo confident in my first round choices.

Thanks Meaty.

(and the Leafs thing only feels right, ya know?)

We could maybe throw Patrick Kane a bit of a bone here in the naming of this award. I'm pretty sure it was him in the background as Ron MacLean was on the ice just after the game for the awards and shit. "We just won the fuckin' Stanley Cup!"

One of my old PE teachers used to do a voice-over when coaches were screaming each other over the boards. "I'm gonna VACUUM your place."

"Vacuum mine? I'll vacuum yours!"

Etc. ... it was always good fun. That's one thing about hockey ... it's not really profanity. Cussin' is just part of normal speech.

Said it in the other post, but congrats, NoMich ... and a big thanks to you too MeatSaber!!! Y'all fuckin' rock!

Okay, since it is the locker room ... I've gotta brag about FINALLY winning my playoff pool. Won my office pool by 10 points, staving off a late charge by my boss who was loaded with 'hawks. $200. I haven't had a $200 hit in ages! Thank you Philadelphia!!!

Mmmmm... Sweet-ass hockey pool money! You make sure you honor that victory correctly and spend it on beer.
