This is unforgivably late. I apologize:

Final results:

1 Ohio State Henchmen 134
2 Rampage 126
3 Bluth Company 119
4 hankthecrank 117
5 FellKnight 108
6 BroadwayBrett 84
7 GoBlue! 73
8 k9way 65
9 didiwinyet 0

That isn't quite right as K9 and Fell are due some adjustment points...
since it wasn't close to enough to challenge the overall winner, I'm not
going to go into the archives to figure their due, but I'm sure I ended
up in last.

Reposted from our groups message board:

Henchmen - Great win... Fellnight and Doggy, even with the adjustment
cuz of the week one stuff, no effect on the final outcome (at least in
terms of the winner)

Hey, Henchmen - as much as it pains me to Kudos a OSU dewd, nice picking
- if you haven't already, send me an email to this account: xxxxx (real
email is on the Yahoo Groups message board) with a shipping address, and
I'll drop something in the mail.

Also, help me out a bit with what, exactly, to drop; a couple questions:

You a drinker? If so, wine, beer, or the hard stuff? If you like that
kinda thing, be specific (what kind of wine, what kind of hard stuff).

You a smoker (cigars)? If so, what are your favs?

You a reader? Again, give me some "hints", and I'll try to find an
appropriate surprise!

Or anything along those lines... you a gamer? If so, any game you've had
your eye on? What system?

Anyhow, congratulations! I hope to put something similar together next
year, although I'm thinking of just putting together a webapp of some
sort: we can all start out with some amount of money, and bet what we'd
like on the different games from each week... biggest roll at the end wins!

Thanks everyone for participating! I know I wasn't the best commish of
all times, har har, but please bear in mind that I've had a lot on my
plate this season... the hurricane and two week loss of power was
nothing compared to my wife's first pregnancy!

Cheers! GG!

Cheers.

FellKnight, my dear, dear friend, there was this time, oh, 1/8/2009 9:54
AM or thereabouts, when you let the following craziness loose on Usenet:

Hey, in all seriousness, if we think we can get a decent group together
for next year, let's do it!

What I'm wondering... I think it might have been you that brought this
up Fell, but wouldn't it be cool if we used a system where we each
started with a bankroll, and picked which games each week we bet on?
Biggest roll at the end wins?

I mean, that's the rough idea. There may be some problems that I
haven't thought of... for instance, I guess it would suck to be the guy
that loses his roll that first week... hmmm, I imagine we could address
that somehow. Perhaps something like this already exists... I guess it
would, is there play-Sports wagering sites like there are play-Poker sites?

Or we could just stick with what we used this year?

Or maybe we can just address this in August, lol. After tonight, we
enter the dark times for me... eight months of no college football.
Arghhh.

Well, at least there's hockey!

Cheers.

Yes, it was me, and I think this idea is best.

I don't know. I think moola.com has some sort of play money
sports-wagering, but am not sure.

If someone loses his roll the first week, that's his damn problem (though
I suggested a roll of 100 units with a bet size of 1-5 units possible).
The biggest flaw of this year's system was the fact that you were forced
to bet on every event.

The potential flaws I see are in the hail marys coming at the end of the
year (though the max bet sizes would minimize this), finding an agreed
site which we would use for lines, and having certain minimum and maximum
number of bets a week or a season. We don't want a case where the winner
is the one who doesn't make any bets all season, or who has a good week 1
and then stops. :)
