The deadline has passed to enter the Phantasy Philly contest. We have 23 entrants, and without further ado, here are the teams chosen by each of those entrants:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v47/bobmann/Running_General/Philly1-1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
Here is how often each runner got picked:<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v47/bobmann/Running_General/Philly2-1.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">Thus <b>Voodoo</b> is our winner of the "most trust" award, getting named on 11 of 23 teams, edging out <b>Solar</b> and <b>Maria</b>, who were each named on 9.</span><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">I hope nobody feels offended if they didn't get picked. It doesn't mean nobody likes you. Maybe everybody thinks you're too fast and that you don't give yourself enough credit! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"></span><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">The only people that picked the exact same team are <b>Bard</b> and <b>Keriksen</b>. (Unless I missed another match from skimming the list). We'll see if great minds think alike.</span><br><br><span style="font-size:small;">So, the next step is to wait until the race and see what happens. We have two more winners to determine: Which of the 23 entrants has chosen the best team, and which of our runners runs closest to his/her predicted time (factoring in the distance multiplier). I won't be home from Philly until Monday afternoon, so anybody is free to look up all the runners' times and calculate the scores and post them. Or I will be happy to take care of that once I get home.</span><br><br>
For reference, <a href="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13904" target="_blank">here</a> was the thread which described the rules...

I'm surprised we had anyone left unpicked, especially such cool people as you guys.<br><br>
Actually, Clare's idea of you guys being your own fantasy team is a good one. It would be interesting to see how you guys stack up against any of the other teams, sort of like a control group. Too bad Baggio won't be there, he'd have been the ideal 4th. Maybe Frankie could be the 4th since only 1 person picked him.

LL and Claire - do not fret. The fact that 5 people picked me proves that there are a lot of people on this board that smoke crack. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

How about making a 'virtual' team of LL, Noni, Clare and Frankie (since he only got one vote). (Baggs isn't running, right?).<br>
If that team wins, then it's pie in all of our faces.<br><br>
Good luck guys!!!

9 votes for Lora but only 2 for her pacer?<br><br>
I guess pacers really don't get any respect. This explains a lot about Chris.

Hey, to those of you who didn't get picked, ever think it was because we thought you underestimated yourselves and we know you will perform much better!? That was my thinking!! As for you <b>LHTim</b> I am drug free, I just know how dang good you are!!

YES! I totally agree. While my picks were sort of random, I did choose not to pick some people purely based on the idea that I think they will do much better than they've predicted... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

I didn't get my prediction in on time. So the one listed is way better than what I'll finish. People are lucky they didn't pick me.

That's a great idea to make a team of the "unchosen". Although, I'm not sure <b>Frankie</b> will appreciated being lumped in with the rest of you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

I'm a little nervous that I may not live up to your expectations.<br><br>
I love the idea of a team of the unchosen. <b>Bob</b>, you've got to put them up there. I would love it if they beat everyone!

I like it too! I had to do a double take at first though b/c of it's similarity to Norah's avatar which is also very cute <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
