Damn!

Josh S. said...

Time stamp tie, at least.

Jason said...

That 4:35 post time stamp is a big, fat lie.

Jason said...

Jinx!

Josh S. said...

I knew I was screwed when I refreshed and it came up with one comment already.

BURN THE WITCH!!!!!

Eric Karros said...

Yikes. Tie breaker rules here.

Mr. Customer said...

Holy Christ. You guys are fast.

Josh S. said...

Do we get a breather after that, or could the 2nd half still happen today?

Jason said...

I may be exposing my geekdom by figuring this out, but there was 11.908 seconds between posts.

Eric Karros said...

Jason, how can you tell the number of seconds between posts?

Josh S. said...

Oh Lord, now I know what I'm up against.

I might as well be playing on Compuserve.

Josh S. said...

Because he's a computer program, not a real human?

Josh S. said...

Kidding, btw.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh S

There is a 78.853% Chance that you are correct.

I have to agree with Josh. I think Jason is a cyborg. At least we know that Josh has procreated.

Neeebs said...

That damn Deltina finger is haunting me.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Either Jason is a robot or a wizard. Or maybe, he's BOTH!

DUM-DUM-DUUUUUUUUM!

Jason said...

I can pass a Turing test so I feel safe calling myself sentient.

@EK - If you look at the Atom/RSS feed for comments (http://www.sonsofstevegarvey.com/feeds/comments/default), it lists the post time down to thousandths of a second. If you open this URL in most browsers, you need to do a "view source" to see the raw XML.

Mr. Customer said...

At the very least, I think we can say that this tournament is a more accurate system than the BCS.

Eric Karros said...

Got it, Jason. Or at least I'm pretending to so I don't appear naive and easily confused.

Alas, the original tiebreaker rules still apply.

Josh - the 2nd half could still happen today. In fact it might happen in the next 11 minutes...

Mr. Customer said...

@EK

I was certain that there would be at least 1 double-header, but I was expecting it before the final.

See, now you've gone and given EK a whole other world to explore for SoSG competitions. Look what you've done, man...just look.

(hangs head in shame)

You guys are incredibly fast and incredibly nerdy.

That's why I love this community!
