Congratulations Erin!

(click image to enlarge)

A true Cinderella Story: literally the last one in the tournament, Erin has vindicated the selection committee by not only winning SoSG March Madness, but doing so in dominating fashion. Whether commenting as herself, Jimbo, or Katie, Erin's slow-fingered trail of vanquished foes included, in order: MLASC, Mr F, FB, Dusto M, and Dr Geek*.

Congratulations Erin, and welcome back to SoSG. Your prize will be announced shortly.

*Just for the record, in the Jimbo-laden Final Round, her 1st half comment was at 8:44am to Dr Geek's 8:46am, and in the 2nd half she beat The Geek 2:03pm to 2:11pm.

Did Jason ever get his prize from last season? It was a guest post, no? Don't recall seeing one.

Eric Karros said...

No...we've been quite delinquent on delivering it. Sorry Jason, but it's coming.

FYI it'll probably be the same for Erin as well (the prize, not the delinquency in awarding it).

Eric Karros said...

^and by 'we' I mean 'I'

Dusty Baker said...

Wasn't meaning to call a Son out...just making sure I hadn't missed some masterful insight and/or pictures of well-stocked bars by Jason.

Eric Karros said...

Mouth off again DB and we're bringing Hey Jimbo back...FOREVER!!!

I'm still delinquent on my post about the game I won tickets to from SoSG. The season going up in flames killed my enthusiasm for writing it.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Are you talking about last season, or this season?

*ducks Karina's thrown object*

Dusty Baker said...

Say, EK, I was just reminded of a limerick from back in January:

It's 3 months 'til Opening Day
Already some lip from EK
Sax posts great insight
Orel gets his shit right
But Lasorda should die, we all say

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: I'll explain to you later why that's so funny.

Steve Sax said...

Shout out to Erin, who had to fight through the always-difficult Mauby Fizzz region!

Dusty Baker said...

BTW just sent you an email, Sax.

Long live SoSG Lasorda!

Snuggie roll-call!

Reserve 12, Row DD.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm snuggling, too. Maybe we can spoon some, Josh. On reserve level section 5 today. Hit me up on the txt if you have a chance.

Neeebs said...

RIP Lasorda. We hardly knew ya.

Spank said...

Snug This!

Erin said...

For the entire run of this game, I set my computer to wake up every morning at 8 am. I worked all day with the SoSG window open on my computer screen. I had to forsake any potential naps, even when I desperately needed them because of my work hours and/or my child's schedule. I was a wreck.

In other words, I worked for this damn thing. So I'm glad to have won it. I look forward to learning about my prize.

And, there will not be a repeat champion should you guys do this next year. I can't take doing this all over again.

Erin said...

Also, for the record, Dr. Geek's "non-Jimbo" comment at 8:46 in the first half of the final round didn't count. So, you guys are shorting me by three minutes.

If I'm gonna be crowned the champion, I want all the credit I can get.
