No worries, I believe you, and it doesn't look like you had any advantage based on the early returns

Thanks for the game Jables, looks like I missed one of the Adele nominations (short form video), but the Rap categories and Foo Fighters did me in.

Congrats to newbie Paintball Wizard, and Mr. P (a perennial power) as runner-up.

I'd like to thank the media, b/c I basically just picked the most famous person I'd heard of in each category, and of course Adele b/c she's on the radio 646,712 times a day.

Thanks for running the game Jables
