Congrats to Omer_h!

I've decided that since we are giving away weekly prizes instead of a seasonal prize, I'm not going to out weekly points anymore. If you folks want to track seasonal standings in the comments, go right ahead.

Also, winners will be contacted by email at some point. You will definitely receive your 6-month membership. It's just a matter of me getting Sean's attention on it. :)

  5. Oh man, I made the dumbest mistake ever on #5. I looked at the Blue Jays' schedule at Y! sports, saw five games, figured an estimate based on that. Only I was looking at June, so I saw five games. Monday was blank, so I thought it was an off day. Of course it wasn't, it was just May 31 so not visible on their calendar. I probably would have guessed 36 if I'd have noticed, which would have given me a good enough total to make the leaderboard. Rats.
