Congratulations, Rumple! This appears to be your first championship since the same contest four years ago, when you and Tron7 were co-champions.

Congratulations Rumple. I sure didn't think I had a chance to make the top three. Yea Me. LOL.

Congratulations, Rumple. I had a chance to win this one at the wire, but it you held me off. Great job on your part. Once again, rcade, our thanks for running this. It's always a good time no matter where one finishes.

Good job, Rumple. And thanks again, rcade

Oooh thanks everyone. Really backed across the line with just five points in the superbowl round but I'll take it - sorry Howard.

Wait a second, no I won't take it -- rcade, maybe in lieu of the jacket you could donate something to the same animal rescue that Truthhurts directed his regular season NFL pick'em winnings to: A Lending Paw. I got a covid puppy named Ruby a couple of months ago and she is awesome so this would be great to support.

As always, thanks rcade for setting it up, it makes up for going back to back with the Cadenheads in the fantasy hockey league, losing to you last week, and in tough against the Dallas Habitants (hurts to even write that) this week.

That Ruby sure is a handsome dog.

@rumple, very generous of you, love having such a gracious winner!

SportsFilter has extended the donation to A Lending Paw at Rumple's generous request.

Ruby appears to be a good dog. We got a kitten named Cryptid a month ago who comes running whenever I crack open a can of Jai Alai IPA.

You can't win Koharski's Donuts without getting through the Cadenheads.

puppy named Ruby

The Cadenheads are the Donuts' double threat, but I drink your doubledouble!

Ruby is half poodle but she only got the black lab genetic memo, other than the very long legs. My previous doggo Nimbus died right at the start of covid which sucks because he could have had me around 24/7, which would have meant a lot of facetime and sardines for him. Ruby is an awesome puppy though, almost five months old now.

Nicely done, rumple and thanks a bunch rcade! Y'all are going to have to do your homework to keep me from repeating, as that was an inspired Costanza performance.
