The TQBR Prediction Game Hall of Champions is an august chamber with a rich historical tradition where only the finest performers are eventually enshrined with hermetically sealed busts. You know their names, for they are legends walking the Earth: Spidershark. Pretty Toney. miggs88. David Schraub. BenOlson. Paul Kelly.
Today, for valorous performance in version 5.0, the final Hall of Champions enshrinee of 2010 is NattyChamps aka DukeShadeBlue. There is nothing new to analyze about his excellence beyond what we said at the last update, because the draw in Bernard Hopkins-Jean Pascal ensured that no one scored any points, allowing him to sit contentedly in first place.
In his honor, I contemplated posting many seminal Duke-related images, but why not the most recent championship gathering?
Everyone join me in congratulating DSB.
I have contemplated whether to continue TQBR Prediction Game in the new year. I’m bad at math, I hate penalizing late posts, it’s time consuming and while there is a devoted core, a lot of people flit in with occasional predictions and don’t play every week. I’ll have more details about plans going forward later, but for now, if you’re a big Prediction Game fan, you might want to consider the kind of rally outside my apartment that people mount outside networks when some obscure but excellent television program is being taken off the air.
