Two answers left, and they were picked by the top four contenders--rocket1312, Kal Varnsen, Krayzie, and Pharoh. Kal is the closest to rocket at 8 points behind. Can he make it up?

Spoiler:
Nope. Congrats to rocket1312!

Congrats to rocket1312 and thanks to David. I really sucked lemons at this game. At least JasonF didn't play and score higher than me.

That was a fun game, I liked the basketball discussion throughout.

I'm not clutch and choked down the stretch

Just wanted to thank everyone who pointed out and put up with my excel issues at the start of the second half today. It really does help rather than having to go back much later. I finished my pre-scoring last night thinking Kal had won, so at least it wasn't that far off.

I also learned more about SMing. I had patterned some of this game after my NCAA game, but they're two different animals and it's something to keep in mind if I run either one again.

And definitely fewer Reverses.

And let's all have a moment of silence for the elephant in the room, or is that sheep in the room: arpeggi. Surely he would have beaten us all had he been here to play.

Thanks David and congrats to rocket!

I did remarkably well considering that I am only a casual NBA fan, but I am a Laker fan, so I at least knew enough not to embarrass myself with another last place finish.

Finally got to catch up with the last question. I feel like a pretty big jerk for ranting about the reverse questions and how they reward dumb luck, only to have a unique on one of the reverses end up being the difference in the game. So thanks again David. I appreciate how even despite the scoring problems you were able to keep moving along and not have to drag this thing out for a week. That's the sign of a quality sheepmaster. Looking forward to the next one!
