(RESULTS BELOW -- My pool pick card below-below)
At least it wasn't Sommar!
Mr. Wargo, you are the champion, my friend. I feel it was a great turnout and I am happy that the Picktainment site came through in the end, although tracking this thing live would have been fun.
We'll see what they have to say about that in the coming days! I will be careful to host at a stable site come next year.
Wargs, you are my old friend and I feel necessary to share with the masses that they just got schooled by a serious adversary in the realm of film knowledge. I knew you were film traveler to follow when you introduced me to Clerks way way back, before anyone knew who Kevin Smith was. You are a part of my inspiration for my love of films. I stand by the first offering of You Don't Know Jack was far superior to the more recent offering of the same title! (--Actually, I didn't see the Pacino piece, but I can only imagine.)
I'm glad I got a chance to visit with you and Kirsten earlier this year and I hope we have a chance to take in a film sometime soon...maybe something from Michael Bay?
While it would have been nice to take down TWO folks with IMDB pages, I yield to you and dub you CHAMPION! Also, if you noticed the photo of the champion has historically been displayed proudly, I promise I will raid the vault for something special in the upcoming days...with great power, comes great responsibility!
Congratulations to all who played...there are no losers when you play in the movie game. Thanks to all!
See you in 2013!!!
