    I picked the Hubbells and Faiella/Scali and dropped 10 places overall. It's not horrible, and I'm still in the top 25 overall, but it still kinda sucks.

    I'm not going to get into specifics, but it's certainly frozen over.

    My rankings have been so random this year! I've had the following rankings through the GP series: 207T, 100T, 22T, 87T, and now I'm at 58 all by myself. I'm either decent in my picks or really bad, LOL I am happy that I picked at least two dance teams who ended up part of the final five at CoR this weekend!

    I hadn't even looked at the leaderboard till just now because my picks have been dismal this year. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that 81, 159, 95, 139, and 89 add up to 15th place overall. Fuzzy math.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Mail in an absentee ballot.

    As long as you lose all points when a team withdraws, luck plays a huge part. I'd say this contest is at least 50% luck. The most important thing, I think, is not to take things too seriously and to just have fun. Whenever I submit my picks, I usually do it in less than 2 minutes. IOW, I don't sit and think real hard about any of them. Sometimes I end up doing half-decently, sometimes I bomb. But either way, at least I know I didn't waste a lot of time on the silly contest.

    I totally suck at this game. It's rather disheartening.

    I've had so many points erased off the board from skaters withdrawing mid-competition, it's as if I forgot to submit my picks one week. Joubert withdrawing at TEB killed me again.

    Jinlin Guan was on the gamecard the night before, but he was mysteriously absent at the competition. But even though I made really good picks otherwise, I still wound up in the high 200's? Argh.

    I didn't drop too far in the overall standings even though I had a mental lapse and picked Guan, completely forgetting he was only on the TEB roster as a replacement for a day (as reported in the original, ever-so-reliable GP assignments thread in GSD).

    Now that you mention it, I actually remember that. Nice one, Victoria!

    They also never removed Della Monica/Kocon prior to the start of the competition. So glad I read FSU before making my picks!

    I remembered about them, but Jinlin Guan escaped me, for some reason.

    My scores:

    NHK: 20T
    SC: 339T
    CoC: 369T
    SA: 378T
    RC: 66T
    TEB: 364T

    I'm in ..... 171st place. And after I started fairly well too. The best I've ever done is way back when it was in the magazine only, and you had to pick 2 skaters per discipline for the entire season, remember that? I finished about 16th then. I don't think I've ever cracked the top 100 since.

    Fuzzy math has me in 14th place now. Somehow I moved up a spot after being 124th for TEB.

    The same fuzzy math has me in 13th, even though my best finish was 34th in Skate Canada. I guess I haven't done really terribly except for CoR, but last year I was winning for about 3 weeks straight, so this season has been a bit of a lapse in performance for me

    Results have been updated, and I'm doing quite well all of a sudden.

    How's everyone else doing?
