In the words of a famous American, "Thats all, folks!" MSAFP(p!)! is in the books, and the big weiner is in. The Envelope, please!
But first, we'll do small potatoes. Week 17 was clearly the last week, as only about 0.8% of you bothered to send your picks in. For shame, people, for shame! Next year, I've gotta come up with a better way to penalize people who don't send their picks in on time... but I digress. Anyway, of the people who bothered to send their picks in (I've only included them below), the winner was (surprise, surprise, surprise...)...
Dave is the big weiner for Week 17 and will receive a WSP in the mail at some point! Congrats, Dave. Don't forget to send flowers!
The standings for the final week were as follows:
1. Dave (12-4) (came closest to the point total, though went over)
1. Joshu (12-4) (went WAAAAAAAAAAY over; Doh!)
3. Me! (11-5)
3. Bill (11-5)
3. Scott (11-5)
6. George (10-6)
7. Matt M. (9-7)
8. Josh (8-8)
9. Molly (7-9)
14. Everyone else. Ppppsb!
So, now the moment that Dave and Scott and maybe Bill have been waiting for! Who came in first place overall? Would it be Scott, or Dave, or would Bill make a run at the last second? Oh the suspense is killing me. The answer is, of course, Dave won. Yay. (Yawn) He beat Scott by one game. Poor poor (poop!) Scott. He'll only be walking away with $140 in ciz-zash miz-zoney. As for Dave, he'll get D308. You'll notice that there is no '$' symbol in front of Dave's winnings. Thats because Dave will not be paid in normal American dollars. Nope. He'll be getting 308 'Dave Dollars'. For a complete history of Dave Dollars find Bill, give him 8 shots of Jagermeister, sit back, listen and enjoy.
In all seriousness, Congratulations to Dave for kicking our asses most righteously. Enjoy it while it lasts, because yr going down next year, friend. DOWN!

Also, I'll be putting all the remaining checks in the mail this week, so watch your mailbox vigilantly.
If anyone has any suggestions regarding the pool, or any comments, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
I wish you all a happy and healthy new year, and all the best in the coming year.
