Round 1 Playoff Pool Champion REVEALED

Now the moment you've all been waiting for - it's time to announce our first round winner in the 2007 Blogger Playoff Pool!

Drumroll please...

Wait, wait, stop the drums. What is this I see? Two winners? That's unpossible!

And yet, that's what happened. You see, I had a tiebreaker built in for exactly this occasion, and...it backfired. Turns out I needed a tiebreaker for the tiebreaker. What are the odds, right?

Okay, kick up the drums again.

The winners:

Duncan from FlamesBlog


Matthew Macaskill from Current Habs History

Congratulations, guys!

As their prize, each winner will get to select two of the other pool competitors to write a loving and heartfelt post about their respective teams - that's a lot of Flames and Habs love out in the world! I'll announce the "winners" as selected by Duncan and Matthew here as soon as they make their decisions.

We kick off the second round tomorrow night and all 34 poolers' picks will be available right here for your perusal and general entertainment, so be sure to stop by and see everyone's predictions.

Oh, and for anyone who wonders if I tried to rig this thing in my favor...I finished 30th. Out of 34 players. Yay.

Ooo! Ooo! Was I last? That was my goal. Winning is for suckers. I learnt that from my team.

Congrats to my counterpart in his victory, may those I have chosen enjoy their writing of the Habs! :D


Now... must pull a repeat. Soooo not going to happen.

Hey, how do we know who you chose?

Matthew Macaskill said...

You'll find out soon enough... hehe

My picks are in, I figure CC is just waiting on Duncan's picks or she merely hasn't had the time to get the info out to those who have this awesome opportunity to write about the Habs and Flames... :D

Sony Ericsson Takes Over Title said...

This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros - 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action. The men’s final is a best 3-out-of-5 sets with every other match in both men’s and women’s singles and doubles a best 2-out-of-3.We specialize in hard to find or sold-out sports tickets, concert tickets and theatertickets for sporting and entertainment events worldwide.
