When I call 'em, I sure call 'em!
End result of tonight's "Test The Nation" on CBC (which was a first-class operation and a superb networking blast, by the way):
My team, the Bloggers, win...not just as predicted, but as boastingly GUARANTEED last week right here.
Also as GUARANTEED here, top scorer over-all was a blogger, my buddy Rick Spence with an incredible 57 out of 60 correct (I had a mere 51 correct, FYI). Not only does this increase bragging rights, but it saves me $500.
Well, not really, as I'm still gonna donate it to a charity, but at least it'll be out of goodwill, and not for losing a bet.
I'm on a prognostication roll. Super Bowl predections, anyone?
UPDATE: Below is a pic of yours truly holding the most prestigious trophy hardware since Lord Stanley's Cup. Thanks to the fastidious Craig Silverman (who has yet to catch one of the many errors here at Surprise Central) and his blog for it.
Nice shot, but somewhat festishly perverse, dontcha think?
