That’s it I no longer believe in Santa Claus.

Dow?  Up...10,827.35

Tie breaker?  Score predictions for the BCS bowls.

-------------------------------------------------

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You won the "Annual Guess The Dow Contest" by coming the closest to the actual close. We will be forwarding you a plaque which you can proudly hang in your office. Also, feel free to put this accomplishment on your business card. Now, you're the envy of your co-workers and the toast of Wall Street! Again, congratulations!

Uhhh, I know I promised a car to the winner, but it's having a few mechanical problems... Right now, it's sitting on blocks in my front yard. You can ride by and I'll let you sit in it, for the time being. My regular mechanic is going thru detox, so it might be awhile before you can drive it away. 

I'm also trying to get you a guest spot on WRNK's morning show, in the segment between "Your Prostate and You" and "Why Johnny Has Two Mommies". I had arranged to take you to the taping in a limo, but all they had left was a pick-up with an extended cab.

Well, it's not the prizes that make the goal worthwhile, it's the good feeling you get from a job well done, right?

Check your results or have them audited, because I said 10750-10850.

Final print was 10,717. But hey, with prizes like that, don’t bother.

Hmmmm...

Compliance won't allow me to put this on my business card (I asked).

I keep all of my awards and plaques in a foot locker in the garage.

My co-workers are already drunk off their asses.

I don't need another car but I can always park this one in my front yard (just like the neighbors).

I've always been told that I have the perfect face for radio.

As long as the pickup is a Dodge...I'll be just fine (I hate Ford and Chevy).

Thanks to all the little people that made this award a reality.  I'll be back next year.

Our judges disqualified your entry because we were looking for a specific number, not a range of numbers. But as a consolation prize, we will be sending you the board game "Google-opoly". Thanks for playing "Guess The Dow"! And now, a word from our sponsor...
