So the good news is there are plenty of, ahem, non-winners to keep each other company.
After a long, long, long (unnecessarily long) delay, our calculations have declared Len the winner of our second-round predictions contest. Len was the only one of you knuckleheads able to predict all four series correctly. A whole lot of you guys and gals came in with three of four.
So, Mr. Perfect, Len, please e-mail me with your mailing address so I can send you your prize (email@example.com).
And, to the winners of our first-round predictions contest (and Sally), apologies for not having been able to get my aasen over to the post office to send out those prizes yet. I promise I will. Soon.
Just so youse know, the producers of the NHL video “Road To Victory: The ‘94 New York Rangers Story” donated a stack of DVDs to be used as prizes. It’s a really well-done video with new interviews of all the main characters. Very cool. So, special thanks for the donation … and those of you who didn’t win, I suggest you think about getting the video anyway. It’s worth it.
Some of those DVDs will be going to Sally’s Third Sometimes-Annual Paul Mara Playoff Beard Contest winners, as well.
Those became official yesterday: 1) Nasty in a landslide; 2) EmmaLee; and 3) Nicholas. But, according to the great Sally, the official winner Nasty has declared that Tony from AZ is the winner. So atta boy, Tony! And nice going, Nasty! The winners should e-mail their mailing addresses to Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to all the winners. Also, congratulations to all you losers. You’re in good company.
