Well, with only one week remaining in the regular season, and then the playoff games left, The Annekenstein Monster’s small but mighty playoff pool is really coming down to the wire.
Here are the standings as of this week:
reverseflash: 130-110 (54.2%) points: 150 Last Week: 11-5
annekenstein: 130-110 (54.2%) points: 150 Last Week: 10-6
Jim Simmonds: 127-113 (52.9%) points: 141 Last Week: 10-6
Graham the Conqerer: 92-102 (47.4%) points: 82 Last Week: 10-6
Over the course of the season, it had been a two-way battle for first place, between Jim Simmonds and myself, but JS has slipped the past couple of weeks and has some catching up to do. Reverseflash, early in the season, was down and out but has been coming on strong and is a strong threat to win it all. I’ve been pretty steady throughout the whole season, and if I don’t win, at least I’ll have that to comfort me. Graham the Conquerer was right up there at the top the first half of the season, but at one point he forgot (I assume) to enter picks for a week and that pretty much ended his chance. Like a trooper, though, he’s been playing out the season.
For a brief period, we had a fifth member, Nils, but I believe he only picked one week, or two, then wasn’t heard from again. After a number of weeks of not picking, I removed him from the game. His stats were bringing the group’s average down. As a group, we are at 52.4% for the season.
Isn’t it exciting, wondering who will win this totally meaningless pool?
