Check your picks to doublecheck your score.

Rumple led the Costanza by 2 before this round but scored 9 this round, which has to be one of the best Costanza-avoidance performances in site history.

Congratulations, NoMich! You can now call yourself a Hockey News subscriber (if you send me your address).

Is there an on-going update for the 2016 SpoFi Overall Pick'em results?

I've been wanting to implement that for a while. The CFL and NFL season-long pick 'ems would be the final two of the year, I think, so they would be the deciderers.

Congratulations, NoMich! Why is six afraid of seven? Is your address still the same as when we did the CD swap?

Man -- not sure how I missed the finals. Guess I only avoided the Costanza by flaking out and not picking.

I like the aggregate standings idea, but sometimes miss these things or elect not to participate because I know nothing (CFL).

Much like the Sharks, I faltered badly in the final round.

NoMich, like the Penguins, improved with each round. Congratulations, you magnificent bastard!

On edit, both a championship and a costanza in the same week?! You the man, man.

Billsaysthis quit playing after the second round and beat me.

rcade, are you truly surprised?

Not winning the Costanza sort of feels like a loss, actually.

Thanks for the time you put into these contests, rcade.

Whoo-hoo! Hooray!! Yay me!!!

Getting the score like I did for each round (total += total), is that like hitting for the cycle in baseball?

Fritsy: I did a CD swap at two different addresses.

Well turns out I don't have either one anymore, NoMich. I emailed rcade and requested he forward your info to me if it is okay with you. But if you are the kind of guy that turns down free food then I will puchus a crossbow instead.

I emailed my mailing address to Rogers yesterday, to his Gmail account, and yes, it's cool that he share it with you.

That requires acknowledgement. I just laughed my ass off.
