We got this started a little bit late but we ended with (10) entries in the So You THINK you are a GYPSY Contest. Initially, I decided on a simple scoring system where (1) was awarded to calling the series on the nose and minus (1) point if you predicted the wrong team.
Personally I can’t see any of you doing better than I would… yet MS FORECZECH has jumped into a first round lead. What makes her picks so good is…
that she also selected…
7 of the 8 winners only missing the Sharks… which she had winning in 7 games. Penguin871 also had 7 winners… only missing with the NY Rangers loss. Good job by both of you. Kutdacheez on the other hand got only 50% of the teams correct. Try flipping a coin next time, Bubba… it couldn’t be worse!
For the 2nd round I decided to raise the point values to give new comers to win the PENGUINPOOP GYPSY AWARD 2009. All based on Toe Blake’s quote: Predictions are for Gypsies.
- 6 points if predicting is on the nose (Team/Game)
- 3 points if predicting correct team
- Minus 4 points if you don’t select the right team
- Entries must be posted before this Thursday, 9:00 PM ET
First Round Results:
As we can see we have a lady taking the lead, here. You guys can’t be afraid of the challenge, or are you?
I see Kutdacheez, Phil Krundle, and RBuckle bringing up the rear making a terrific comeback in the 2nd round. With the Caps- in does Stealth get in the mix? If so, who does he pick? Does the great SEEK put his reputation on the line? We shall see.
Possibly even STH35 and Reg Dunlap gazing into their crystal ballz and getting “in the game”….. we’ll see, eh.
DR Hook’s 2nd Round Predictions are:
Bruins in 6; Penguins in 7; Detroit in 5; Chicago in 7.
Believe me when I say… YOU WON’T do any better. We are working on a way to ‘sticky this’ or provide a easy LINK to it as the games go on.
This is DR Hook…. carry on
