Thanks guys, it feels good. And for the record, I was in Hawaii during the first two rounds so I think it safe to say the curse is broken.
Still, can't get over how fickle this game truly is. Not sure if anyone else looked at Patrick's (The Cranes) scores during the past two weeks but had he beaten me in the last game of the regular season, he'd be (well, pending how well he scores tonight with the Vikings and if he gets enough points to beat ruiner's score of this week) the champion right now. He had enough in the first week to beat Jay (88 pts) and the Topes in week 2 (95 pts). Instead he finished 9th, losing that last regular season game by less than a point. Ouch.
