4/25/14 -- RESULTS
« on: April 25, 2014, 07:30:25 PM »

I have two pictures here.  One is a picture of my FPG picks for this week.  The other is a picture of a turd about to be reheated in a microwave.  Which one is which?

These past few weeks have made me sick to my stomach.  Even when there only a few due pricing games, I can't make a decent score out of it.  Now... or Then certainly didn't help matters any.  It wasn't due, and nobody picked it.  Bonkers wasn't due, either, but Teddy decided to gamble on it.  He gets a $50,000 bonus out of 18th place.

All of this week's medalists predicted the entire first half exactly.  Chad1787 nailed those three for 12 MP/48 CP, but it was only good for bronze.  Schfifty and wildbill0962 each added Money Game to the perfect first half.  Bill couldn't get the slot or result correct, but Schfifty correctly predicted a Money Game win.  That gives Schfifty his very first gold medal.

See you next week!

* = whammy007 won the tiebreaker for slotting two of his pricing games in their correct halves.

** = Tanzerey8 won the tiebreaker for slotting Punch-a-Bunch in its correct half, but it didn't matter since he got the same points and cash.
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

This is a familiar-looking spot... me in fifth, Hag in sixth, tiebreaker stars attached to us both. I should've done better, but I completely forgot that Pick-a-Number was played last Friday (despite getting money for it), go figure.

Still, my fifth straight top-5 finish, I'll take it. Now I just need one more game to make it to the playoffs...

Yay! :-D

I was actually a little worried when I checked the calendar on Scorpz's site after submitting my picks, though. I saw that the first three games I picked (L7, Switch, and Punch) were previously played, in the same respective half, on the Halloween Special on 10/31. But, as it turns out, situations like these can pay off. No worries anymore!

And no, Chad, Bill and I did not secretly PM each other. :P
