They started doing exactly what you said on Thursday. They offered the first guess $500 and then brought it down to $200. I thought of you and the quote above when I saw that.[/quote]
This amuses me more than I can say. Not only am I just egotistical enough to think that they actually responded to my suggestion, but I'm also just egotistical enough to see this as more evidence that "the industry" does read this board.  Both could easily be wrong, of course, but I'm amused nonetheless.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

Nice stuff.  I guess I have to beg a pointless question: Were you entering online or via text message?

Last night was the first time I had watched, and I turned it off right after your win (had to get my beauty sleep--in which case I should still be sleeping).  Nice job nailing that down and congrats on the win.  :)
