Last Week Tie Break

OK, so I've decided to take my sports prognostication public. The reason to finally take this plunge - a sports pool gone horribly, horribly wrong. It was the sportsnet NFL pool, and the problem came down to a tiebreaker. As anyone who knows football can tell you, the last week of the season is nearly impossible to predict. Some teams show up, others don't, and there are various incalculable reasons for it. To value that questionable week over performances in past weeks is more than a little suspect, if you ask me. They had a tie break system in place where the Monday night game (Sunday in the last week) is used to predict the score of the game. Whoever is closest wins the tie break. Even that would have been better (and, also, I would not have finished in the top 3 in that scenario either, but it would have been a loss I could cope with).

Anyway, I emailed the guy who ran the contest. I'll post tomorrow how the exchange went. He actually made some good points and took the time to address what I wrote. I respect that. It's a lot more than I expected, and kudos to him. It's not easy to run a pool that everyone will be happy with, especially when it comes down to a tie break. And especially when I'm the one who is just left out of the prizes :)

So the sports predictions and talk will start tomorrow. Until then, this isn't sports related, but enjoy anyway:
