The top 3 movies this weekend were:
- The Hobbit 2 $31.5M
- Anchorman 2 $26.7M
- Frozen $19.6M
First off, some controversy with the Sacko matchup between:
#5 Maurice Mitchell &
#8 Briane Pagel
Neither one made any picks before the cutoff date. So on Saturday I sent a Tweet to both and the first one to comment won 7th place. That turns out to be Briane. Which means Maurice wins the Sacko by default. In this case, not the two sweetest words in the English language.
Next, the pointless matchup between me and David Walston
1. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues $41M
2. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug $34M.
3. American Hustle $24M
That's 100 for Anchorman 2 and 100 for Hobbit 2 and 0 for American Hustle. Which is 200 points
- The Hobbit 2 $40M
- Anchorman 2 $35M
- American Hustle $20M
I win! Which means I move from 6th place to 5th place...oooh.
Next the 3rd place game between #1 Rusty Webb and #7 Michael Offutt
1) Anchorman at $49 million
2) Desolation of Smaug at $35 million
3) American Hustle at $25 million
That's either 200 points
Anchorman 2 $35 mil
Hobbit 2 $25 mil
American Hustle $15 mil
Also either 200. Neither one got any movies right. Michael is closer on the Hobbit, so I guess he wins
Finally the championship between #3 Chris Dilloway and #4 Andrew Leon
1. Anchorman 2: $39m
2. Hobbit: DoS: $32m
3. American Hustle: $20m
Which is 200 points
Anchorman 2: $26m
American Hustle: $18m
That's 500 points.
Chris is the champion! So a Dilloway won, just not me.
Here are the final playoff standings then:
- Chris Dilloway
- Andrew Leon
- Michael Offutt
- Rusty Webb
- P.T. Dilloway
- David Walston
- Briane Pagel
- Maurice Mitchell
Congrats to the winners and thanks everyone for playing. As is traditional with the NCAA tourney here's One Shining Moment, the 2010 version that briefly shows my avatar Blue II.
