Hockey Pool, week 1

Each scoring week in this year’s pool runs from Saturday to Friday, which I prefer to the usual Monday to Sunday – it’s much easier to find time to update the spreadsheet and post the results over the weekend than on a Monday!

As you can tell, I still haven’t quite optimised my use of Google Documents Drive to make charts…

…or my hockey picks. The eight points I picked up for Schneider getting a shut-out for the Canucks on Friday night helped a LOT – yay for the Schneids! SSSSCCCCHHHH!

Congrats to Sugar Scientist for taking the first week’s bragging rights! There’s a tight chasing pack though, so watch out…

I’d very much like participants who have blogs of their own to share the updating duties again this year… please let me know if you’re up for it and I’ll email you the link to the Google Drive spreadsheet. I’ll do next week’s, and you can sign up for a week of your choice on the spreadsheet itself.

    Oh Shit! This is a hockey pool? No wonder I’m sucking so bad. When is March Madness?

  2. Woohoo! Except… when you start at the top, you have nowhere to go but down, so… nevermind. I’d be happy to help out with the blog updating during the season.

    Well, I see that I appear to be thoroughly mediocre so far. But that’s OK, there’s still many weeks to go – I’m sure I can reach the bottom yet!

    I will definitely do some updates on my blog – send me the Google Drive link and I’ll sign up for some of my weekends when I don’t have classes!

    Ill be happy to help with the scores (no not only for the traffic increase I actually like it 😉 ).

    I’m second !!! Woho! I take happy the only time it will be there. Now if the leafs could remember to keep the leads from first period and not lose it on the third… Eternally happiness
