And the winner is...
I have conflicting feelings about this. On one hand, given that he only beat me on a Sharting tiebreaker vote in a game that I would have won outright had some guy not voted "plus one" in a different language, you could argue that I really should have won.
Actually, that's exactly how I feel. Now I'm using Deadspin to screw myself out of awards. What is wrong with me?
Thanks again to everyone who participated, and a big thank you to everyone who cared enough to keep coming back to vote. It wouldn't have been much fun if it were just a handful of regulars voting for each other, so I really appreciate the interest and involvement.
Maybe we'll do this again next summer. I'd love a field of 64, especially if it included some of the regulars who elected not to play this time. I think we all agree that this was all for fun, and not to be taken too seriously. On that topic, can someone untie those ropes and get Bronzie and Echo off of the rafters?
For those of you keeping score at home, here's what happened in your Final Four:
Semifinal One: SaveToFavorites def. Sponsoredbyv8
