    Thanks again for doing this Glen. Congrats to you and bone. It was a fun year for predictions. Hopefully more of the W's I chose for Edmonton work out a little better for me next year

    Yeah, when Montreal went up 21-17, looking at Hugo's 24-18 prediction for Montreal, I started to get a bit nervous. Made for a fun finish to the game as it made me first cheer for Winnipeg to hit 24, then switch allegiances to Montreal after that to score the upset and ultimately secure the win as who I felt was the more deserving team on that day.

    Thanks for doing this Glen. It was fun. Even more fun for once not being 6th place or lower going into playoffs as is usually the case.

    ...and the 18th iteration of the Elksherd CFL pool is finished! The race for first was basically ended by a spoilsport who kept lucking out in his predictions, not to mention stealing the "pizmo" strategy to scarf up bonus points. But the race for second place was entertaining, and kept on going to the very end! And, yet another exciting and unpredictable Grey Cup game, which illustrated once again why this league is just so much fun to watch.

    So, first place goes to the spoilsport.... Me!!

    In second place, he managed to hang on by a a single point to capture the prize, is bone!

    Honourable mentions (but no prizes, sorry) go to Hugoagogo, who fell just one point shy of bone; couchspud; naf; and cmbuk, who kept things close until the end.

    Bone, I'll send you a PM in a moment concerning your prize. I won't bother to PM myself.

    Thanks everyone! Although our team struggled yet again, it's been a blast, and CFL football is returning to its glorious, chaotic self. Can't wait for next season!

    Ha, that was cool... just Googled "cfl scores" to confirm the final score of the Grey Cup, and little red, blue, and white fireworks danced across the search results!

    I'll post the official results soon... dealing with a health issue. Nothing to be worried about!

    The math was working for me for a little while
    I'm happy we got a great game.
    Congrats on a great year of picks!

    Hm, that's weird. I haven't had any other reports. Just for the playoffs?
    Yes, just for the playoffs. It did let me pick for the Grey Cup today, maybe there was something with my browser? I should have tried from a different device.

    It would be a pretty awesome way to pull it off picking a perfect score for the underdog (assuming I don't pick that underdog of course).

    Congrats, Glen. It really never was in doubt for first.

    OK, that's it folks... I am now mathematically certain to win the pool! Almost everyone went 1-1 this weekend, with most picking the Argos and Bombers, of course. I'm 9 points clear, and with only one game left (the Grey Cup), the most anyone can get is 5.

    For second place, it looks like bone's in a really good position, with a 3 point lead over Hugo and a 4 point lead over couchspud. For someone else to take second, bone would have to pick a loser, and either Hugo or couchspud pick the winner with bonus point(s) thrown in. It's still possible, although I think it's "Hail Mary" time for Hugo and couchspud.

    I'll post the GC in a few minutes.
