And so the time has come in the 2009 BGO NFL Pickem Contest.
We've had a great contest in our inaugural season. But in the end there can be only one And, truth be told, although as a BGO Staff Member, he wasn't eligible for prizes, Neophyte was that one. Finishing a season's worth of picks with nearly 70% accuracy, Neophyte beat all comers with an astounding 184-81 record. Amazing job Neo.
Our *official* contest came down to the wire with the BGO NFL Pickem Champion being determined not by the number of correct season picks (both our leaders selected 182 winners on the year), but by their tie-breaker point totals for the year. Even more incredibly, after 16 regular season games, the playoffs, and the Super Bowl, our #1 and #2 finishers were separated by a mere 3 points.
The winner, by a razor-thin margin, of the 2009 BGO NFL Pickem Contest is Jimbo. Congrats on an incredible late season run to the championship
Runner-up, and equally impressive, was a player who for most of the season looked to be running away with the title. Congrats to servumtuum for an incredible 2009 performance.
3rd Place, with a 180-85 record, belongs to MisterPinstripe. And our 4th place winner, with a record of 179-86, is Coolbreeze.

One note on prizes, as our BGO Store is currently down (and our re-opening date not known), we will substitute an NFL baseball cap of your choosing for the BGO Store items.
Once again, thanks to all members who played the contest year, congrats to our winners, and we look forward to even more fun in 2010!
