A SuperBowl means SuperBonuses. Picks are due Sunday by 6:00 pm EST.

Please pick the following: The winner and by how much (3 max points possible, using the same formula as always) Over/Under 56.5 total points scored (1pt) First team to score? (1pt) How will the first score be made, Offense/Defense/Special Teams? (Punt/Kick formations are special teams even if fakes) (1pt) And finally, which team will have the most 3rd down conversions? (1pt)

Thank you all for playing. Good luck.

Thanks a ton for doing this, apoch. You did an excellent job. Hopefully, l_l_b ran one of these for her fantasy league and had just as much fun.

And I hate to disillusion you, boredom_08, but technically you're still on the bottom when it comes to the Costanza: the only people who qualify are those who play all the rounds (otherwise, you'd "win" by not playing). billsaysthis, cl, and tnelson all DNP last week.

However, be proud: The Costanza is an honorable achievement, and one that only one person can win every year, just like the "winner". :)

As a former winner of The Costanza, I can attest to the honour that is bestowed upon you. Wear it with pride.

The news this morning told that an elephant and a chimpanzee (I think) had both predicted a Colts win (the elephant by kicking a soccer ball through a goal and the chimp by selecting a Colts Jersey. I'm not sure whether this dooms me because I call the Saints to win, or that it places me in rather better company than elephants or chimps.

Thank you all for playing. This would be no fun without you guys. Until next year.

Thank you for putting this together, apoch.

Try coying and pasting this: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tl0IpgopQFX2UqqiQXgZw1g&gid=2

Please let me know if it works or not.

That one works. Thank you again.

Nicely done, yzelda ... thanks, apoch.

If the pantheon could edit my link to remove the " at the end I'd appreciate it.

I'm not trying to be coy, apoch. (hee heeeeeee)

Wow, yzelda kicked ass. In pick 'em terms, this was a blow out. Nice job.

I can't believe how far I fell.
Fritsy: were you even trying? 'Cause if you were actually just shooting for the Costanza, then I should be the true "winner" of it because I was actually making picks for real. Man, how brutal is that?

posted by NoMich at 12:02 PM on February 08

Thanks, fellow sportsfites.

posted by yzelda4045 at 12:23 PM on February 08

It's absolutely brutal. Straight up embarrassing. To be fair though, I didn't make a pick any of the three Jets games. I might have gotten a couple of extra points but that wouldn't have been enough to matter.

Congratulations, yzelda4045, and many thanks, apoch.

Scoring error alert!

I should have gotten 3 points for the Super Bowl round (spread (13), first score (Colts), third down conversions (Colts)). That would give me 16 as well.

I want my shared bronze medal!

posted by grum@work at 02:08 PM on February 08

Um.. Spread was 14. So since you didn't pick the Saints you had to pick it exactly right (like owlhouse) to get a point.

posted by apoch at 02:17 PM on February 08

I'm still screaming Shenanigans on yzelda's week 2 point count. Had to be an inside job!
But, I kid. Good job ... and thanks, apoch!

posted by littleLebowski at 03:09 PM on February 08

Mid table mediocrity, Woo Hoo!

Thanks apoch.

posted by owlhouse at 03:24 PM on February 08

Totemo domo arrigato gozaimasu for running this, apoch. It's always fun.

Omedeto gozaimasu to yzelda for his yuu sho. It wasn't even close.

The best news is that my wife won $50 bucks on a numbered squares pool at her school, so the day turned out well.

posted by Howard_T at 05:16 PM on February 08

Congrats to yzelda on a game well played and apoch on a game well hosted. It was the Saints' year. They had all of the emotion and motivation on their side. The Colts were just playing too safe to win this game.

If grum would like the third place bronze, just come on over the the house. I'm using it to prop up one end of the couch downstairs.

posted by THX-1138 at 05:54 PM on February 08

Thanks, apoch.

I scored in every round! And finished in the middle of the table! Hooray mediocrity!

posted by cabuki at 09:35 AM on February 09

Since I've never won any sports pool/game/pick'em of any sort, my first place medal is on my mantle immediately to the left of my Saints helmet.

Oh.

Idiot alert!
grum@work didn't read all the rules properly!

posted by grum@work at 05:32 PM on February 09

Wow. I more than doubled my point total from prior to the Super Bowl. Ah well, there's the Costanza lost. Darn. I do actually have a Costanza somewhere in my trophy cabinet, I just forget what for. Woo, four point week, and thanks to the Saints for saving (ish) my sorry bum.

posted by boredom_08 at 09:21 PM on February 09

OK, grum, now that we've got the rules and points straightened out, could you please put my couch down and get out of my basement?
