As a wise man once said, "I am an optimist. It never struck me as being much use to be anything else." :)
Ah, I see what you're doing, Thunder . . . planning to end the Memphis streak on Saturday and carry the momentum back to OKC. Got it.

Can we celebrate moral victories here? ;)
Very disappointed, of course, but so proud of them for clawing back and staying in it 'til the end.

Memphis' home winning streak may be impressive . . . but the whisper that the Thunder have stopped far more impressive and longstanding win streaks oughta be just a tiny bit troubling for them. :)

When you click on your avatar to see your profile, you'll see Contact up in the corner. They're really good to answer back promptly. Or since I've already addressed the issue at length with one tech, perhaps I could just pass along the choppa address and ask if they'd also turn off that particular spam filter for it as well? I'd be glad to do that if you want me to . . .

My reply to this disappeared . . .
Nope . . . doesn't work here.
The livefyre guy told me in the message that they were working on a "site-specific" remedy for the issue at DT. Maybe you need to tell them you want a site-specific remedy as well. :)

Hey @cleandoe . . . did you notice that on our profiles it no longer shows the link to the choppa on posts made here?
Livefyre guy turned off the spam filter that was attacking comments containing links on DT. Not sure if that was specific to DT . . . kind of think it was.

So does this involve a food plan too? If so, what does it look like?

cleandoe was on DT . . . and I missed it?!
I was thinking earlier . . . last year's Round 1-Game 2 was a win, but the morning after was crushing. I'll take where we are this year any day.

It's like duhsweetness said . . . if you can't pick your team to win it all in a meaningless contest with no prize at stake, then when can you? :)
@cemitten is the man! :)
EDIT: And it's great to see the links working again!

I've been meaning to tell you how much I've enjoyed your blog--especially the Thundead and Frozen entries. The Pop Culture 25 was a fun read too. I don't watch Game of Thrones, but I did get a kick out of your pictures.
You're really good at this, Brandon. Very imaginative and fun! Thanks for sharing with us. :)
Here ya go, Alex. ;)

The really important thing will be seeing if our MOVE OUT posts will work again. It's been rough without those.
Are you tired of being #3? ;)
Maybe try a different browser? I can see close to a dozen people viewing it . . . so I know it IS reachable ;)

I'm thinking next year I'll break ties by using # of teams sitting in the exact spot predicted, then # of teams only off by one, etc. . . . rather than using the subscores.
. . . and much of Portland
Okay guys . . . livefyre guy sent me an email earlier and said the troublesome spam filter had been turned off . . . the one being aggressive towards posts with links. So I'm going to try this again . . . the end-of-season WC prediction standings--color-coded to show how close each prediction was.
