At Least Some People Are Winners Today

Congratulations to Bosox Fan from Wichita and Ryan, winners in the Oil Can Boyd book giveaway contest. In the runs department, it was a close race with BFfW nailing the total of 23 over the last 6 games and beating out Section 36 by a run. (BFfW was the first one to enter the contest, so in retrospect nobody else had a chance in the runs contest.) On the hits side, Ryan had it pretty much locked, needing anywhere between 4 and 12 hits today, and the Sox got 8 for a total of 48. Ryan's 50 was an easy winner.

Section 36 had the right idea overall--he predicted the lowest run total and the lowest hit total. And the second-lowest guess came through in each category! But he was unfortunately shut out.

Bosox Fan from Wichita, e-mail me your mailing address and I'll send out your copy. In a weird twist o' fate I'll be seeing Ryan in person tomorrow anyway so I'll be hand-delivering his copy.

As for today's Red Sox game: _____________________________________.

I'd rather had more Sox wins, but I'm happy to win a book. Thanks Jere. I'll e-mail you my address.
Thanks for the comp,and well done to the winners.

BFfW, I will correct the "in/from" error in this post, and will send your book right out.

Mark, thanks for playing!
Actually, I see you USED to be "in Wichita" and now you're "from Wichita." Will refer to you the "from" way from now on.
I don't know how or when the "in/from" changed, I just click on a pop-up. I guess I'm both. I wasn't born here and I've lived elsewhere, but this is where I grew up and now live. I suppose I'm only from Wichita when I'm somewhere else.
Thanks for a great contest. I'm sad that my low guesses ended up being so close.
