Hockey pool, week 2

I have to say, I’m really enjoying the return of the NHL – having games to watch on dark, rainy weeknights makes me very happy!

The pool, however, is not going so well for me. Here are everyone’s points for Week 2:

It was a great week for Gerty and Lava, while Week 1 leader Sugar Scientist also had a very strong showing, with Raj Blackhawks not far behind. At the other end of the graph, Bam and Gen Repair still don’t seem to have figured out which sport we’re following, not that I can talk with my mighty 11th place weekly finish!

And how did these results affect the overall standings?

(Sorry about the shitty graph, by the way – I used to make these graphs in Excel while I had lunch at my desk, but in my new job I actually have people to eat lunch with AND the pool weeks end on a weekend rather than a week day. So I have a choice of Google Drive or Numbers, neither of which I know how to use anywhere near as well as Excel. So I can’t figure out how to give similarly coloured lines uniquely shaped data point marks, but at least the legend on the right lists the players in order of their position).

Sugar Scientist retains the top spot, while Lava’s, Gerty’s, and Raj’s strong week 2 picks lifted them up to second, third, and fourth places, respectively. The rest of us are ticking along much as we were – but there’s still plenty of hockey left to play!

Beth is hosting next week – thank you, Beth and Chall, for signing up for hosting duties!

    I was wondering why it seemed like you didn’t make picks!

    placed in the middle… is better than last.. but right now I’m 3 p into the next week. horrible season start in general, Leafs are making me cry (as usual) and I so much would like the play offs. PLEASE!!!

  5. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    I thought I had! I’m so pissed off. But really, the only reason my picks are so bad is because I picked them, so…
