Hockey Pool, Week 1

So the hockey pool has started! And since “week 1” only constituted two days1, Cath decided that she’d start doing the weekly updates next week. Well, bollocks to that I say! I’m doing well and need to brag, because you never know how long you’ll be on top! I could be in last place by the time next Saturday rolls around! And with that, I give you this shiny line graph of the hockey pool’s standings as of the end of Week 1:

VWXY Hockey Pool - Week 1
Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that, as of this writing, I am currently #1 in the pool, with a cool 26 points after last night’s games. Take that, everyone!

  1. Thursday and Friday, since the CBC hockey pool that we are using starts it’s “weeks” on Saturdays. []

    Sci Mother, your downfall can’t be one of the rules! That makes you a hockey pool anarchist.

      I will have no downfalls! Long live Beth’s Team of Hockey Hotties!

      If I do have a downfall – which I won’t – but if I do, I will be the supreme ugliness of the Sedins, which forever prohibits me from picking them in a hockey pool.

    Sedin hater alert!

    I get Carey Price, Pekka Rinne, and most of your other picks but how the hell did Jonathan Toews make your squad? And Martin St Louis? Barf bag! But I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder… Danny is the first ginger I’ve crushed on, but only if he keeps his helmet on.

    • Beth says:

      I love the Sedins as players, but they are fugly, fugly men.

      As for Toews, I feel dirty liking a Chicago Blackhawks player, but he’s ao damn hot!
