It sounds nutty but there usually is a winner who guesses the real surprise of the playoffs.

Big news is that the server has to be rejigged but will be in time apparently. Interesting, Adam, sys admin to the pool (the guy doing all the work) was out of touch due to the server being needing rejiggery. I contacted his brother in law in Singapore, my old roomie, who gave me his sister's email in T.O. who pulled Adam's head out of the server box just long enough for an update. The funny thing is I am sure I have never met Adam. Awfully nice to lend the hand. I will have to fire up the old box and pull some pool stats off it. <p>If you look here you can see the seminal notion of the pool being raised in an email in 1997 by Colin MacLean, of Halifax whose mom went to school with Adam's (Toronto) wife's (Toronto) brother's (Singapore) wife's (Singapore) mom (Calgary). Colin's Dad (Halifax) was president to a board my Dad (PEI) sat on in the 25 year ago or so range. I think I am freakin' out just thinking of this....well...not really but isn't life just nutty?

As Al mentioned, the server has been rejiggered and is almost ready.

Registration will open as soon as the final division spots are clinched...
