I accept this victory with total humility, except to point out that by my count, I had 23, not 22.

We all know it's mainly luck for any and all of us in these deals but it sure was fun. Thanks, Tafnut.

Yeah, I think I shorted everyone one, because I count 20 for me now. I vehemently protest your 'luck' comment. I, for one, spent way too much time on my picks! I prefer to see my 7th place finish as being in the top .000001%-tile of all the people who COULD have entered.

It is interesting 'the Bible' did so poorly... in another prediction. They didn't do very well compared to the participants in this contest - http://www.athleticslinks.com/contest.html , either (out of 66 participants, 20 beat them). Time for T&FN to get someone else to do the form charts for them, perhaps?

Seriously, if the 11 of us worked on it together, we could have done phenomenally. I am impressed that you guys were into it enough to even enter. I know that that I am an inveterate tafnut, but it's a little comforting to know that at least 10 others on the planet are as whack as I am.
