Spoke with him earlier. A story should be up in the morning.

Good for him. Nice to see a teacher get some extra coin.

Congrats to him. Definitely deserving with the hard work it must have taken.
I had a perfect game going with Grienke on my Brewers...then i got lit up in the 9th with 1 out.
It was lame.

Last year's winner wasn't a big sports gamer either. That hurts a bit; I'd like to see one of us guys that play mostly sports games win a contest like this.

We're too busy tweaking sliders, changing rosters, and editing players for us to get this before some yahoo, who doesn't even care about sports, wins it.

This is more than likely the answer. We're more concerned about realism.

I did take a few stabs at the contest but didn't come anywhere close to registering a perfect game. I don't know how he did it with default sliders pre-patch.
