And The Winner Is...
Congratulations, Jen!!!! You ended with a whopping 115 points with an impressive bracket from first round to last. In fact, you only lost two picks after the second round! And there you were giving me the business over Midnight Cowboy... I know you said in comments that you were going to refuse the prize, but I don't feel right about that. How about this: Pick a DVD for your kids, any DVD. See, I don't want Looney to think I picked Casablanca to get out of having to give the winner a DVD. ;-)
Congratulations Looney! You came in second place with a 102, duking it out until the bitter end. Also, very impressive that you came in 2nd without picking the winner. Nice picking!
Thanks to everyone else for participating in what was a spur-of-the-moment idea I had while driving to work listening to the talk jocks chat about the March Madness basketball tournament. I had a royal blast doing it, and will definitely make it an annual event. Of course, even more importantly, out of this was born the Film Freaks Film Club, which will be the coolest thing ever in bloghistory.
Finally, thanks for keeping things fun, engaging, respectful and positive. We've all seen the nastiness that can go on throughout the blogosphere, so it's been extremely gratifying to have ol' Boiled Dinner be a respite from all that. I think I'll try to keep it that way.
