AC Staff Playoff Prediction Challenge: And The Winner Is...

New, comments

SPOILER ALERT: it's not me.

Let's just forget this playoffs ever happened.

As for the Ducks, the bar has been raised and they have about a hundred days to prepare to meet the challenge that the douchenozzles up the freeway just threw down.

But first... we must crown our winner of the AC Staff Playoff Challenge.

Coming into the round, guest writer Jer was tied with our own Kid Ish and Ben for the lead with 90 points, while Chris, Eric, Liz and Lois all sat merely five points behind.

So the results of this final round are as follows:

So I think it's pretty clear now: your winner and newest champion of AC Playoff Predictions is:

Kid Ish

Well done, you pizza-loving playoff psychic guru, you. For your prize you get the honor of bragging rights and unbearable gloating privileges for the entire next season, until a new champion is crowned. Too bad your victory is marred by LA winning.

*Lois defeats Eric by guessing 24 Stanley Cup Final goals to Eric's guess of 27. Actual number was 25, meaning Lois was off by one while Eric was off by two.

Thank you to our guest writers Jen Neale and new Battle of California overlord Jer Dobias for playing, and also to everyone who played along this year. We look forward to doing it again next year when hopefully the playoffs don't have such an abhorrent end.
