The Captains Speech

The Oscars were last nite, and guess who won?!

The Captain!

My wife and I are big film buffs, so for us the Oscars broadcast is something we look forward to every year.  It gives us an opportunity to partake in a rare head to head competition in the form of the Oscar Pool.  Besides my buddy Grellner, my wife is probably the best handicapper of Oscar odds of anyone I know.  She’s all business when it comes to the Oscar Pool.  I tend to vote more what I think should win, not always what I think will win.  As such, my record in the Oscar Pool is pretty dismal.  Coming into this year, my record was one win and four losses1.

This year I was determined not to lose, so I voted strict odds on favorites.  And it paid off!  I beat Meg 17-14!  I even managed to beat Grellner this year.  It was a resounding win all thanks to my

So, I’d like to thank the Academy for helping to improve my record to 2-4.  Winning!

Ciao,

The Captain

1.  The only year I managed a win was back in 2008, and I only won by one point.  I won with my pick for  “Falling Slowly” from the Once soundtrack.  Thanks Swell Season!
