Congrats, tron7!

The reason there are two prizes being awarded is because both tron7 and rumple picked themselves to win, getting either 5 or 0 more points as a result and thus either winning or losing.

I am sorry this was not posted last year. I had a good reason for being late -- I sadly lost my dad over Super Bowl weekend -- but never getting back to the contest was absurd.

The prize was supposed to be an NFL End Zone Rush T-shirt, but those are no longer being sold. A gift card is being substituted.

Congratulations to the user name that always throws me for a loop (my brother's name is Tron and his number back in his sports playing days was always 7)!

Thanks rcade ... moral victory for tron7 on raw points.....

Renewed condolences over your dad.

Good job you all. I never went back and did the math but I figured the winner had to be tron or rumple.

Too bad there were no props for the game going to overtime, which I predicted. That might have gotten me close enough to carry tron and rumple's luggage.

Thank you rcade for wrapping this up.

Now it's on to Pyeongchang. My wife and daughters rule the television and are Olympics freaks. The loser of the programming battle is not me, it's the Gilmore Girls.
