Winner Winner Chicken Dinner - The 7th Annual Almost the Easiest World Series Contest on the Web has a Winner!
Wow what a great series. As someone who had no horse in the race it was fun to kick back and watch the show. I really didn't care who won, I was pulling for the Astros a little simply because this would be there first World Series win in franchise history, but honestly the two best teams in baseball duking it out what could be better?. And that game 5!
In the end we had six participants correctly guess that the Astros would win it all. Out of those six we had 3 that correctly guessed the match up, but only one who guessed it would go 7 games. No one came close to guessing what a slug fest this would be, but in the end the Sportzcommish came out on top!!
The correct guess plus tie breakers would have been
Astros over Dodgers, 7 games, 25 freaking home runs!
The tie breakers run one into another so we had to go to total games to find the winner.
Here were the winning picks!
Sportzcommish - Astros over Dodgers, 7 games, 8 homers.
Nachos Grande - Astros over Dodgers, 6 games, 13 HR
Fuji - Astros over Nationals, 6 games 14 HR
Collecting Cutch - Astros over Nationals, 7 games, 17 HR PIMPED
Jeff S - Astros over the Nationals 7 games 15 hrs
RAZ - Astros over Dodgers, 6 games, 18 home runs.
Now for the door prize winner. I entered all the entries into a list randomizer over at random.org and randomize the list 3 times. Those that promoted the contest on their blog or other form of social media got an extra entry.
In an odd twist of fate our second place finisher RAZ is our door prize winner!!!!
Sportzcommish and RAZ I will be trying to contact you shortly unless you get a hold of me with your current mailing addresses.
I want to thank everyone who entered this year. I've been pretty bad about finding time and stuff to blog about, but it's still nice to have a big turnout for the contest. And since we are already halfway through the NFL season, man it's flying by, I'll be holding my 8th Annual Super Bowl contest in the near future.
Thanks again everyone.
