7th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Divisional Series Round Up



Well I can be honest, I haven't seen any of the playoffs so far.  The fact that I don't have cable is part of it and also a late season work trip.  But tonight we go down to four.  I was just reading the highlights of the Cubs - Nats game.  Geez.  Like I said we are down to four teams and well one of those teams just happens to be the Yankees, which no one picked.  Spoiler??

We got the Yankees and Astros League Championship Series starting tomorrow and the Cubs - Dodgers starting on Saturday.  So with that we did lose quite a few people, 19 by my count, and that's almost exactly half.  Here were your picks, those in red are out.

Lack of Better Judgement - the start of a comic book blog.

Not to long ago I joined the Facebook group, Comic Book Collecting.  It's a great group that's sole purpose is to let comic nerds nerd out to comics.  Zero selling or trading allowed it a pure "for the love of" group.  It's really rekindled my interest in my comic collection.  Originally when I started this blog 8 years ago or so it was the intent that this would be an all encompassing collector's blog, but over time it had solidified as a trading card blog.  And so be it.  Of course I had the bright idea to start several other blogs to focus on my team and player collections, my Lego Minifigure collection, my urban gardening and even my drawing and other art.

And since I can't seem to find time to post regularly even here why not start another blog dedicated to comics?  Anyways I can't guarantee how often I'll post there or here for the that matter, but if you're interested in comics take a gander.

7th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web - Official Entries



Ladies and Gentlemen the contest if officially closed.  We had 37 people enter by my count.  Not too shabby.  I'm too lazy right now to see if that sets a record or not, but I'm still happy with the turn out.  And thank you to the people who promoted the contest.  And if I missed anyone please let me know.

We've got a little bit of very one, with it looks like the favorites being the Indians and the Dodgers.  Oddly not a single person picked the Yankees to even show up.
