Congratulations to Ying Yang Mafia with 15 points, who wins on the first tiebreaker over Mr Bismarck, guessing a 49.8 overnight share (1.7 off) over 44.6 (3.5 off).

The Constanza goes to the incandescent hincandenza, whose 6 points were the lowest of any player who entered at least four rounds.

I'm going to write software to make it easier for users to run pick 'ems. Is there any interest in a weekend Premiership pick 'em for the remaining 13 games of the season?

Good job, Wing Wang!

Bravo YYM - well played!

I'm just glad I didn't lose on the commercial thing.

rcade: I'd play.

YYM clearly had Ray Lewis' god on his side yesterday. In other midwestern news, congratulations to another graduate of a fine MAC institution, Miami University, the Cradle of Coaches, for leading his team to s Super Bowl victory!

I am also awarding myself a bonus point for predicting not only that Budweiser would win the ad meter, but that it would be a clydesdale commercial that would do it. So now I can hold my head up and face the world.

That super bowl ad meter thing you linked to is from 2012.

Fixed. Thanks.

Next year I think I'm going to take a cue from this year's Big Game and shut off the lights when I do my picks; I might get a better score that way!

Seriously, Congrats to the Ravens and YYM.

This (and sweeping the Beyonce section of my prop betting pool) will ease the pain of coming a point short on my square.

Thanks for setting this up rcade. I would also play a premiership pick em. The CFL pick em has proven that I don't need to watch any of the games to enter a mediocre showing.

It's a gift, what can I say? I am George Costanza!

Congrats, YYM.

Nate Silver is dead to me.
