2011's Spoils

I've been lazy. I've been tardy. I simply haven't wanted to break out the camera for a few weeks since the prizes have been rolling in. However, with Game Seven going tomorrow night, there's no time like the present for getting the prizes posted for those of you who will qualify for one. So while the Bruins and Canucks fight for NHL supremacy, several people will go home happy with a prize that cost them absolutely nothing because that's how HBIC rolls. You like free stuff. I like free stuff. What's to complain about? More importantly, though, we'll see who gets the bragging rights for 2011 as HBIC Playoff Pool winner, and who gets to sport their shwag in front of friends, family, and competitors.

I want to be clear when I say that not everyone will win a prize. I apologize for this, but I can't bleed all my contacts dry. Instead, I will award as many as I can from the following list. The singular "grand prize" will be listed first, followed by the smaller $20-30 prizes. Let's take a look at what's up for grabs.

Again, not as many prizes as last year's collection, but they're still pretty good for being part of a free pool. I'll have the Playoff Pool totals posted on Thursday, so check back for the updates. The prizes will be handed out according to how the pool finishes, so whoever gets first-place in the pool will have his/her selection of the prizes. The remainders will pass to the second-place finisher, and so on. If you have any questions, hit me with an email.

I do want to point out that Canada Post is talking about a full mail strike in Canada meaning that the mail services will be out for what appears to be an extended period of time. While they haven't announced the exact date that the lockout/strike will begin, I want to alert those of you in the USA that prizes may be a little slower in getting to you. Just a heads-up on that, kids.

Game Seven tomorrow! Get yourself settled in for a beauty!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!

So it looks like I finished in 7th place.

Good thing I have a dog.
