Hockey pool, week 15

Well, seeing as I completely forgot to organise who was doing which update, I’ll host this time – and try to do better next week!

Lavaland (at the very top) and Thomas (at the very bottom) tied for the week’s best performance, with 31 points each. Ricardipus was next, opening up a mighty one point lead over Bob. But can either of them catch Lavaland?!

Chall beat Gerty’s weekly score by one point, increasing her lead over 5th place Gerty to… two points!

ScientistMother brought up the rear in the weekly tallies, allowing me to make up some of the ground between us. But I have at least one eye on my rear-view mirror, with Thomas making a run for 7th place!

I don’t seem to be able to change my picks right now – there’s some kind of glitch with the system – so hopefully we’re all in the same boat! Could be an interesting week…

    Wasn’t expecting this after spending the first 4 weeks at the bottom of the pool! I did get my picks in for the week a couple days ago – they were pretty risky so who knows how the week will end up.

  2. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    I’ve figured out the problem – and, wouldn’t you know it, it’s a user error! There were a couple of early games (really early – already finished, in fact) on the East coast, so they closed the picks down early.

    Who the hell starts a hockey game at that time on a week day?! Or is it a holiday in the US today?

    Just learned from Twitter that it’s Martin Luther King Day. So there you go. No pick changes for anyone who hasn’t already made them!

  4. I thought I was doing it this week? Oh well I can do it next week. 🙂

    Booo! I’ll get you Ricardipus *shakes fist*

    Bob – it’s verrrrrrrrrrrry close isn’t it?

    Lavaland – I was way down at the bottom for the first bunch of weeks too (insert typical Cath-like “idiot picked a bunch of Maple Leafs” joke here) – so your subsequent performance is even better by comparison. 😉

    I got my picks in on time, no clue if they were “right” though. We’ll see…

    …I would like to get back in the game…. my slope is not that one I want…. *sulking in a corner*


    congrats lavaland!! You see, obviously what happens in the first weeks don’t matter in the end….

    BTW, all, the season is only just halfway over. Still lots of time to change your place in the rankings!
