    Perennial bridesmaid Prancer is the true Sasha of FSU Amazing Race Predictions. We'll ignore that there have been multiple Kwans to her Sasha over the years. :shuffle:

    We can refer to them as the Irinas, the Shizukas, the Kimmies, the Sarahs, etc.

    Sasha had her multiple Kwans, too. :D

    Congrats to the medalists. :biggrinbo Each of last week’s top four scored 20 points, and their placements (let’s be honest – the only ones that really count here) were unchanged.

    GOLD: Lilia A
    SASHA (tie): Lara
    SASHA (tie): Prancer

    PEWTER: shan


    Lilia and Prancer are used to being in the rarified air of FSU Predictions, so :respec: to them. OTOH, but, excellent rise from the middle for Lara and nice recovery from multiple seasons in the dregs of the dregs for shan. :p

    Also, kudos to Elizabeth Anne and KHenry for having a perfect score for the finale: 1-2-3 correct in Rank ‘Em, all three finalist teams in Pick ‘Em, and correct answers in the two bonus questions.

    So that's a wrap. See ya next time ... looking forward :watch: to the weekly bloodshed of your Rank 'Ems (confusing gaggle of former also-rans) and to the variety (beyond the Cowboys methinks) we'll see in your Pick 'Ems.

    Roll that dice! :puppet:

    Thought not picking the doctors 1st might screw me of silver (I knew I'd be rooting for them so wanted some consolation if they didn't win, plus Claire's comeback from the watermelon hit was impressive). Wheee!

    IIRC I sucked last time and did ok the one before...I guess I'm the Carolina Kostner of predictions? :lol:

    Is it possible to do one to many combinations in this game? I guess (way more than) one too many combinations of bad rank-em selections.. :lol:

    I'm thrilled with my top 10 finish. :cheer2: Not bad for my first outing. Of course, it'll be downhill from here on and Phil Hersch will be telling me to give it up and go back to school next season.

    It was your first season and you were too stupid to get nervous.

    You'll bomb next year, disappointing all your ubers who proclaimed you the second coming of Kwan.

    Oh my, I won? You mean without having to bribe the judges?

    I would like to thank first and foremost....Nick and Vicky:lol::p Without them, this wouldn't have been possible. Honorable mention to Dandew, for setting the standard of the 'weak team that despite doing badly in almost every leg manages to stay until the very end'.

    I beat 3 people! :inavoid:

    And I'd have been in 19th if it weren't for my pesky 10 point penalty :glamor:

    :COP: Hey, you're right to thank Vicky*, but only partly so. Lara, with your N&V rank 'em instead of her own, would've just tied you for first, and Prancer under that scenario would've still fallen a point short of you.

    *Little Nicky can't be thanked. Left to his own devices, he would've taken a too-long nap on the way to the TAR17 starting line, and Vicky would have replaced him with a canned ham (which, turns out, may have been slightly more helpful with things).

    :cheer2: for the pewter medal!!! Next cycle I'm sure I'll be back at the bottom, but it was fun to be near the top for once. Thanks Beefeater for running this every cycle. :D

    Well, thanks to (or no thanks) Nick and Vicki for placing WAY higher than I thought they would....and to Michael and Kevin for placing lower than I thought, :rolleyes:

    Dang, had the top three correct and still didn't win!!!!!


    Word to the wise future contestants, PLEASE READ THE DANG RULES! :lynch:

    But I'm pleased to finish in 5th. I'm going to keep playing until I win again. :watch:

    Getting a perfect score doesn't happen too frequently so I will enjoy my moment of success, even though it was only for one episode of Amazing Race :D. I wonder if it will be easier to predict when we know more about the racers. Looking forward to the next series.

    Thanks Beefcake. I enjoy both contest formats.
