Contest Update: Final Standings

I apologize for the delay… but today was crazy. I originally thought that my TA’s would be able to read your posts in the morning… but between report cards, a little party, clean up… and finally award certificates… it didn’t occur until after all of the students left… which was well past 3pm.

So without further adieu… Here are the top 5 poems:

First Place: Kirk Jacobson
This was the only unanimous choice… both TA’s loved it.

Second Place: Eric L.

Third Place: Baseball Nut
They argued over second place, but I told them they needed to choose one… and Eric L came out on top.

Fourth Place: Martyn

Fifth Place: Speigel83 & jaybarkerfan

Another debate over fifth place, but honestly… by this time… I just wanted to go home… so both of them will get 3 points.

Plus… along with both fifth place winners… I’ve decided to award BA Benny, Play at the Plate, and cardanathema with an extra point each. The first two wrote entertaining poems that were a little too long to qualify… and cardanthema received the lowest score by the TA’s… but I liked it and felt bad for him.

So here are the final standings in our contest:

First Place: Martyn (36 points)
Second Place: dawgbones (35 points)
Third Place: Ryan G (34 points)

Just remember... everyone has a chance at winning a prize, not just the top point earners.

For every point you have, your name will be entered into random.org... after that we'll leave it up to fate. However... it's basic math... the more points you have, the better your odds are of winning.

And finally the list of prizes:

Package A: 90's Football Inserts/Parallels BV: $30+
Package B: 2009/10 UD Basketball "Masterpieces" Starter Set BV:$24.50
Package C: 2009 SPx "Shadow Box" #S-KS Kevin SmithBV:$20
Package D: 2000/01 UD ICE Hockey Base Set (1-40) BV:$15

Package I: Transformers Video Game for the PS2
Package J: 1981 Fleer Willie McCovey Autograph BV:$?
Package K: Baseball Autographed 8x10 Lot (Feller, Boone, & Jethroe)

Once again... thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in this year's contest. Tomorrow, I'll enter everyone who has positive points into random.org and we'll let fate take it's course.

You are only allowed to win one prize... so as soon as you win, your name will be pulled from the remaining randomizations.

If you are a winner... you will need to let me know which prize package you want by Sunday morning, otherwise you'll receive whatever is left over. I'll give everyone more details in tomorrow's post.

Okay... time to hit the sack. G'nite & sayonara!
