    Phew. I was worried you wouldn't make it on time. The Mandalorians literally scored seconds away from your post.

    Oh @Alamact & I thought you were going to risk it all with some brave picks this week :). Of course if I was every in a position to win this thing I would have done exactly the same.
    & the Superbowl pi ks are going to be interesting as these 2 seem very well matched & I have no idea who to pick as for the last couple of years it was easy as I just whatever team wasnt the Jedi :p

    To be honest, once I saw that most of you (except for crazy @Maximus attempting a Hail Mary) picked the safe ones, I figured it was pointless to risk my lead.

    Aaaaannnd, we're back! Wow, ladies and gentlemen, I don't know who was in charge of that commercial break, but they need to be sent back for reconditioning. I mean, can you believe it, we just sat through 4,821 commercials and not a single Tide Ad! What is this, amateur hour?

    BEHOLD. The big game is upon us! Only two teams left standing. The final clash of the season: Super Bowl LIV.


    Super Bowl LIV: Sun, Feb. 2nd:


    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    B-1s @ Ewoks (Sun 6:30pm EST)

    Darth Andy the Fat has his fluffy army within striking distance. All that is left in his way is a powerful young apprentice of the game named Shanahan, aka: Han Double.

    While Darth Andy makes his final preparations, confident in his field general's abilities to wreak havoc through his precise strikes and uncanny improvisation, Shanahan, the Master of the Machineeks, is eager to shake off the force ghosts of Super Bowl past; specifically, the ghastly specter of TwentyEight2Three. Will he find his vengeance, or will Darth Andy finally achieve the ultimate victory?


    The Final Round: Where All the Rules Change

    • Winning Pick is worth 25 points
    • In addition to the team, pick the winning score: this will be the tiebreaker in the event of a tie
    • Winning prop bets are worth 0.5 points each
    • Since it's a tight race and we're all practically in it, you have the option to submit your pick confidentially. If you choose to do so, please send a PM to @Lazarus Dei with your pick and score. You can still post Prop Bets here if you'd like.
    Good luck everybody!!

    EDIT: I am having difficulties finding a nice prop bet sheet. It seems that since sports gambling is becoming more and more commonplace here in the states, there is more emphasis on real bets than "party" bets. If I can't find our usual sheet or a nice replacement, I'll create our own. Hang tight on the prop bets for now, thanks folks!

    I have no idea what you're talking about. My knowledge of that game is still only slightly above zero.
    For my whole life I learned about Football, that the ball is round ( as in shaped like a sphere) and a game is 90 minutes.
    Unlearn what you have learned. Long it takes.
    And don't forget to CC @Meister Yoda when sending your confidential picks to @Lazarus Dei

    Hahaha, sorry about that. So the prop bets are basically very small (and often arbitrary) facets of the game that you can bet on. You wouldn't believe some of the stuff out there. Ours usually stays pretty tame, here is an example from last year:
    .. and a very detailed explanation if you are interested: https://www.oddsshark.com/super-bowl/props

    I think it is looking like I will be manually making a collection of prop bets, since OddsShark doesn't seem to have done one this year. So now is the time, if there is anything crazy out there you want to bet on, lets hear it!

    We could just use the oddsshark piece and adjust it for this game......If everyone wanted, but there needs to be a decision made as the game is tomorrow! :)

    I'm all for the OddsShark sheet. It's what we used last year and it worked just fine, IMO.

    We do not have the time to redo the OddsShark sheet. It doesn't have to be pretty, just functional.

    OK, lets do it!!

    @DarthSnow did you get this??

    EDIT: Just for consistency, everything EWOKS/CHIEFS related will be in the first column, and unless anyone objects, #15 through #18 on the sheet WILL NOT be used.
