Thanks a lot, Matt Flynn. You made it almost impossible for me to sift through bonus predictions in week 17.
After a two-week hiatus in which I was able to regroup and grade some papers (by which I mean your bonus predictions), we finally have our results from the second half of the Cheesestradamus season. With an unbelievable performance in the double entry Week 17, your second half winner is:
Who is this person, you ask? Well, this is just the person who put up the single-week record of 16 points in the Lions-Packers entry, and added on 6 points in the Across the NFL entry to come from one point back to win the second half by a staggering 5 points. And that's with 2nd-place finisher Swenny916 getting good performances of 6 and 10 respectively. Please extend your congratulations to Mr. or Ms. or Mrs. Power, as he/she will be the recipient of a gift card to the Packers Pro Shop (courtesy of our benevolent leader, Brandon).
Your results can be found after the jump.
Oh, and just for the hell of it, let's do a Cheesestradamus contest for the Giants-Packers playoff game. No gift cards will be on the line during the playoffs, but enjoy the contest anyway.
