This year, unlike a couple years ago when Tucker won, I was lucky enough to get a last-second play on the table in the finals.  Tucker and I had just agreed to a medium prisoner exchange and got our attackers on the table to over-ice each other's defender just before Eric called time, giving each of us 2 more points of successful attack.  That allowed Tucker to pass Eeyore for third and me to leapfrog Andy for the win. 

And may I say... Holy Macaroni!  I didn't realize the scores were so close.  ...or so low.  ...or that I was ahead of Andy.

Yow.  5?  That's terrible!  I'm sorry I couldn't make it this year;
alas, I had to show up to NEfilk (as I'm vice-chairing next year's

Congratulations, Ryan!

So players were who?  Tucker, Andy, Ryan, Eeyore, Sor, I'd have to
guess, with Kat getting eliminated for the Final (I -have- to arrange
more practice games for when I'm in Boston!)?
