March Madness Winners

March Madness has come to a close with the University of Florida winning the championship and with Connie being crowned Queen Supreme of the nonaKnits Pick'em pool.  Check over there on the left sidebar for a listing of the top 10 finishers.

As for prizes -- for what good is a competition without prizes -- the following Pick'em Participants all win prizes:

  • Connie was our Pick'em pool Grand Champion, winning with a total of 168 points and finding herself in the 99th percentile of all Yahoo Pick'em participants!
  • I feel a little guilty, but I was second with 161 points.  In lieu of a prize, I'm going to treat myself to an ice cream cone.
  • Maryse was third with 146 points.
  • And 'hepinblanc' was a close fourth with 145 points.
  • The Spirit Award goes to Al who may have come in 33rd but displayed the kind of attitude I most admire when she posted the following message on our Pick'em message board:

i am so proud of myself, even though i am totally losing...i didn't even know how this all worked until i signed up. my boyfriend was amazed when i told him i'd picked my bracket ("who ARE you?")

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all the Pick'em participants.  If the winners can please email me their snail mail addresses -- nonaknits at gmail dot com -- I will mail out the prizes.

I had to ask my husband what a bracket was!

A suggestion? Do this again next year -- but with the women's teams! I've never been a basketball watcher, but the women's games were thrilling. I'll be watching them every year now!

Thanks Nona - I definitely enjoyed March Madness more with a pool to check every day! I second Adrienne - what are we going to do now? :)

Thanks for the opportunity to play with other knitters! It's so much fun to find people who "get" both!

Yes, thanks so much, Nona. Great fun and I second Dee's comment - "it's so much fun to find people who "get" both."

woo! thanks Nona - just goes to show that my mom was right when she told me that enthusiasm is convincing (i.e., would count for about 90% of my P.E. grade in high school!)
