Lines have been drawn & the end is near...


Padres and the Phillies are playing for playoff positions... but they're also playing for something much, much more. Little do they know... the winner of their game will impact the lives of 2 contest participants. The question is... which two? Either way... I'm going to have to run a second contest to determine the overall champion.

If the
Padres win, then both Spastikmooss & G Moses will both end on top with 38 points a piece.

However, if the
Phillies win, Tony Mc and 82Redbirds will both finish on top with 20 points.

Here's the current standing (Mt. Rushmore points included), along with everyone's wager on tonight's game.

Spastikmooss - 26 points (Padres/12)
G Moses - 26 points
Hoopography - 24 points (Padres/11)
Tony Mc - 24 points
Sal - 22 points (Padres/10)
82Redbirds - 20 points
night owl - 17 points (Padres/7)
BA Benny - 14 points
Play at the Plate - 13 points (Padres/5)
Steve D - 13 points (Padres/1)
TJ - 12 points
Martyn - 12 points (Phillies/3)
dkwilson - 10 points
Cam - 9 points
Redsox101 - 7 points (Padres/2)
John - 6 points
Captain Canuck - 5 points
Jeremy - 4 points
(...Joe) - 3 points
longlivethewho - 1 point
The Ranter - 1 point
lonestar - 1 point
timmy v - 1 point
dodgerbobble - 1 point
Sports Card Report - 1 point

I'll have to admit, I'm pulling for the Padres. But... damn you gotta love the amount of points going down the drain if the Phillies win. I can't believe only one person picked the Phillies to win... and there's no possible way for him to win.

I guess if the Phillies do win, it's makes my job a lot easier. It's a lot less names I have to enter into random.org.

Well good luck to you all and thanks again for everyone who's participated in this contest. I loved reading all of your responses... especially the Mount Rushmore comments. Those were awesome!


  1. I've had a great time reading your blog.
    Sorry for being the only one backing the Phillies they just really need the win and are currently in extra innings.

    Goodluck to all.

  2. Don't be sorry... I never thought so many people would pick the Padres. Looks like you're the only one to win the wager! Congrats Martyn... I'm going to add up the points right now.
