IDYFT Playoff Pick'em: The Winner

It was a brutal fight to the death. But as the Packers ultimately defeated the Steelers, so too did the IDYFT Pick'em crown a champion.

While Big BM hit the Big Bonus (+7) for picking the Packers at the start of the playoffs, both Jess and Ryan completed the amazing Long Bomb Bonus for +17. That's what you get for calling the Superbowl winner in September.

With the final score of 31-25, Jess was the closest for both scores (27-24), while Big BM picked up points for calling on the Packers for 35.

The Trivia Question Bonus supplied some much-needed points: both the Ravens and Pats were most-picked for the Clash, while Buffalo was on the underdog list the most often. Ryan, Adw and Jess nailed both Trivia Questions.

All this typing is making me thirsty ...

Final Standings
1. Jess: 61 pts (+39)
2. Big BM: 56 pts (+29)
3. Ryan: 36 pts (+23)
4. Leftnut: 32 pts (+9)
Adw: 32 pts (+12)
5. MuMan: 24 pts (+6)

That is correct, folks. Jess swept the 2010 Pick'ems, which makes her a four-time champion. Outrageous. Truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

Jess, you are set to enjoy two (2) literary prizes! As such, perhaps an indication in the comments section of what kind of books and authors you like. Don't post your address there, but send it to me in an email. Congratulations. Again.

Meanwhile, will there be a 2011 NFL Pick'em? Only time (in the sense of how long it takes the NFLPA to cave in) will tell. Stay tuned, true believers!

Ugh. It's Jem.

Truly outrageous.

Oh, and I'll read pretty much anything.

Congratulations to everyone for a great year, and to Jess in particular for winning it all.
