First off, I'd just like to briefly explain my absense. Due to big time cut-backs at work, many sites seem to be "off-line". One of which is sadly Mania. I have temporarily become a weekend poster.
Secondly, this pool WILL go through to the end. "The end" meaning till 1 guy (or girl) is left. There will obviously be no more new players added. Some of you are still picking though, which is cool. I don't like eliminating those who have forgotten to pick but have made the rule and will be stickin' to it. Sorry to those who I've known on here for years but rules are rules.
I've thoroughly ended doing it and have appreciated the response and participation from all 162 of us that have played at one time or another. Sorry its taken so long to finish and I wish I had something more for the winner but I don't have much.
But I do have something.
After this pool is over I WILL NOT be doing another. It takes a lot of work and time, neither of which I feel like volenteering again. If anyone else wants to start a new pool like this or different, have at it. I honestly couldn't care less. In fact, I'd play along with everyone else provided it was cool and not gay which I could totally see happening. Haha. One pool which I'm involved in, has actually been a ton of fun. This link will explain more:
Trust me when I say its a lot of fun and well worth the $20. In fact its so fun, I will be paying the entry fee for the winner of McArthur's Pickem Pool!!!!!!! Its not much, but it's something. I think we all know bragging rights is what's mostly at stake here.
Thanks again, good luck, and hopefully see playin at mmaplayground.com!
