Make Your Pick

This is not a comment-time post. In fact it is for those not in the SoSG March Madness tournament.

So far, some of you have placed your bet (see rules here). The rest of you still have until 1pm PT today to pick the winner of SoSG March Madness 2010 Champ (comment in this thread). Here are the remaining eight contestants and their current situation:

  • (4) Dusty leads (3) S Dittmore by 1:38
  • (3) Jason leads (1) Quad by 0:16
  • (3) J Steve leads (4) Loney Fan by 0:39
  • (1) Josh S leads (2) Neeebs by 0:01

And here are the bets placed so far:

  • Dusty Baker: MLASF, Brazilian Dodger Fan, Fred's Brim, Meaniebeanie, rbnlaw, Keven C
  • Josh S: Mr Customer
  • J Steve: Mr F
  • Steve Dittmore: Greg Photo
  • QuadSevens: Gagne's Lucky Glasses
  • Neeebs: Betsy
  • Jason: Curious Gene
  • Loney Fan: Nobody

Remember, if you're the only one to pick the champ, you automatically win the prize. If you share the correct pick with others, you are all entered in a random lottery for the prize. Either way, it's riskless money (well, not money, but a prize worth more than any amount of money), so make your pick!

Steve Dittmore! If he can beat me, he can beat anyone.

Fred's Brim said...

I gotta go with DB and his 40 minutes of hell, and then his 3 minutes of heaven

Betsy said...

Gotta root for the man who took me out - Kemosabe Neeebs! Don't disappoint ;)

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Come on Quad! Don't let me down

QuadSevens said...

I'm gonna step up my game at 1pm today and take Jason out!

Loney Fan said...

My money is on Quad

Meaniebreanie said...

Putting my money on Mr. Dusty. I like his grit, determination, and willingness to take his lumps from Mrs. Dusty.

rbnlaw said...

I gotta go with the man who destroyed my championship dreams (thanks to a finicky firewall).

DB for the win.

Eric Karros said...

DB has a gaggle of supporters. I'm not sure if that's something to be proud of or not.

In anycase, don't forget folks, if you pick the correct champ, whoever that may be, you'll have to split your chances with all others who also pick correctly.

Keven C said...

Dusty is to SoSG as Mel is to FotC.

DB FTW.

Josh S. said...

Mr. C is gonna love his prize.

Jason said...

My alter-ego would like to pick me but he has a tin-hat style paranoid personality and refuses to open his own Blogger account out of fear that Mark McGwire will show up to steal his identity while distracting everyone by socking a few dingers.

Eric Karros said...

Approx 1.5 hrs left to place your bets.

The readership's confidence in DB's commitment to stalking the blog for new posts is impressive.

Josh S. said...

You guys picking DB are gonna feel so dumb when you find out the prize is one Dodger Dog.

Dusty Baker said...

@ EK, et al-

Impressive, and well-reasoned.

Curious Gene said...

I feel I have to pick Jason, simply because I must have been beaten by the best. Obviously.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Almost time Quad...*puts cheerleader outfit on and grabs pom poms"

Eric Karros said...

Betting window closes in 4 minutes...

Loney Fan said...

Wait! I forgot I'm still in the contest! I bet on ME!

Jason said...

Good choice Curious Gene

Eric Karros said...

Wait LF, indeed you are still in the contest. This did not cross my mind when you threw your support behind your arch-rival Quad as I do these administrative things in a very mechanical way without thinking as I do them. I guess that leaves you without a supporter and the opportunity to prove everybody wrong.

J. Steve said...

Doesn't matter... Loney Fan isn't going to make it to the Final Four!

That super-secret prize is yours, MR. F!

Loney Fan said...

You'll see! You'll all see! (maniacally laughing)

Steve Dittmore said...

I'd like to thank GregPhoto for his support. Kind of like lending your support to Ross Perot in 1992 or John B. Anderson in 1980.

Dusty Baker said...

Or Ross Perot in 1996.
