I really enjoyed this finale, despite the lack of closeness (nee "drama"). Very well laid out ... the map challenge was very cool if not very hard (anyone who raced the race should know that simple order) ... and Atlanta looked lovely. If not for Marcus' OMFG horrible piloting (well, landing mostly) skills and bad advice from a passerby for the Invisibles, it coulda been an excellent race-to-the-finish.
I fully expected Ernie and Cindy to win, esp. since God's Bros went out last leg. (LOL at ErCindy giving the boys props, while contemplating losing to the "C" students.) Was surprised when so many of you in the Suicide game did not pick ErCindy.
That was one friendly, genuine-looking big bath mat gathering! All season long you could tell that there was more friendliness among this crew of racers. Nice. I really liked hairy Boarder's final words about the amazing opportunity God had given them to race. I think we'll see both the Boarders and Team NFL on the next All-Stars season.
Marcus called Amani smarter than Peyton Manning, there at the end. ("smarter than any quarterback I've played with ..." Sure she's smart, but my man #18 is genius smart.
