Still, I managed to hold on to first place until the final game on Monday night. I was this close to being the first poolie to win without a single player in the final. I literally led the pool for 99% of the time, until I didn't.
It's not easy losing this consistently. It's actually the second time I've been caught from behind on the final night. I've never won and have now lost about twenty years in a row.
Oh yeah, there was that one year there was no Stanley Cup playoffs. It felt good to enjoy the feeling of not losing for a spring.
