Sorry, C.I. I realize that 14 is a magic number. It places me in the top half of the fantasy players, but I still don't have my medal. I must train for the next Olympics. Smile

My dark horse Group D teams did not come through. You don't know how close I was to picking Mongolia.

@realjohnboy,
Congratulations to TGordon for coming here and pulling off a late surge to grab the gold. And to Hingehead for touching the wall just ahead of a few other folks right behind him.
Thanks to all of yall for playing. It was a lot of fun.
And, of course, a big tip of the hat to Fbaezer for organizing and running this. Good job!

On another topic, jpinmilw has started an NFL Fantasy Football game here on A2K in conjunction with Yahoo. We have 13 teams but need a 14th player to make it work the way we want. And we need that 14th person by Thursday. Please check out the Fantasy Football thread for an explanation of the game.
And rest assured that a knowledge of football is not required.

ElStud, I suspect you've got more to say on these boards.

Stick around. It's a good place.
