Illegal Curve First Round Playoff Predictions–Updated

Posted by Drew Mindell in Uncategorized on April 21, 2009 — No Comments

With Richard indisposed somewhere, likely face down in a ditch working off the aftermath of a  drunken stupor (he did finish exams yesterday after all–cut the drunkard some slack), I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to update the First Round Playoff Predictions. Please welcome to the prediction game, both Cole and Pattywins, both of whom sent in their picks long before the playoffs actually began.

As always, these are for recreation only, and reliance on them for gambling purposes is likely to result in you ending up in the same ditch that Richard currently occupies.
