Freddy Forecaster Champion Happy to Win Boobie Prize
November 17, 2016
Thanks to all who participated in the Freddy Contest this season. Your involvement makes this awesome league even more exciting. Freddy Junior apologizes for taking so long to compose this...Freddy had writer's block just thinking about not winning his own contest.
Congratulations to BringTheHeat (Commissioner Brad Hengst) on sole possession of First Place in the Freddy Contest! He finished with a 49-21 record or a 70% success rate. "Winning the World Series would have been okay, but winning the Freddy Contest was my main goal," said Hengst, never.
Finishing a full three games back, at 46-24 or a 65.7% success rate, were BUCKle Up Bosox (Chris Seitz), Burghman (Dale Peck), and Liar Liar (Jim Schnetzka). Freddy Jr. finished tied for 5th, at 45-25 or a 64.3% success rate, with Blasting Cap, Mickey Bats, and Tinman. The Favorite, which is the consensus of all picks, finished at 47-23 or a 67.1% success rate. Not too shabby!
This would not be the Freddy Contest if we did not mention the worst picker for the year. Muffmeister (Ron Sanford) finished at 33-37, 16 games off the lead. Which is impressive, since he submitted picks every week.
Also, congratulations to those who finished with perfect weekly records. Lying Lochte led the pack with two perfect weeks. Followed by BUCKle Up Bosox, Liar Liar, Blasting Cap, Mickey Bats, Granny, Pull My Hammy, Sparty, 12 Ring, Snoopy, The Natural, Gravy, and Freddy Jr, at one perfect week each.
Each person who played in the contest will be entered in a random drawing for a free ticket to the league awards banquet (March 4th at The Great American Saloon in Red Lion)! The drawing will take place in early January. Thank You again for playing, and I hope that you'll play again next year!
