Contest update

In early June we set up a contest where the winner would win an Obstructed View t-shirt. All you had to do was guess what the Cubs record in June was going to be. The tiebreakers were runs scored, runs allowed and the number of hits by Starlin Castro. With 5 games left in the month, I thought I’d post the predictions. I entered one, but can’t win. There were 22 people eliglble to win the shirt.

Being the dumbass that I am, I missed the scheduled doubleheader on Tuesday and counted only 28 games initially. Mercurial Outfielder entered his prediction prior to my correcting it so I’ll give him one win or loss after the month in whatever direction helps him out.

The Cubs are currenly 8-16 and they’ve sored 84, allowed 113 and Castro has 33 base hits. We can eliminate dwag, but he wasn’t really trying to win anyway. He must already have a shirt. A lot of people do. Josh is also eliminated as he picked 16-13 and so is melissa and Bubba Biscuit. If the Cubs win the next five, talkingtocactus wins.

If the Cubs lose every remaining game there would be a 3-way tie between Rice Cube, dylanj and Wrigley Mike. Rice Cube will be closest in the first tiebreaker so dylanj and Wrigley Mike are out.

If they win one more, there would be a 4-way tie. Urk is out because he can’t be closest in the first tiebreaker. If they go 1-4, jtsunami needs the Cubs to score 27 or more runs to win. If they scored exactly 27 more runs, it would go to the second tiebreaker.

If they win two more, it would be a 4-way tie. We can eliminate Mercurial Outfielder because his tiebreaker loses. If somebody else wants to run all the scenarios, go for it. I’m way too lazy.

The Breaking Bad OV shirt is no longer available. Cafe Press won’t allow it to be sold unfortunately.
