Below, you'll find the final standings for inaugural Off the Glass Bracket Challenge. I want to thank everybody for participating and hopefully we'll get you back in 2010 and build this into something bigger and better every year.
Big ups to Islanders defenseman Radek Martinek for claiming the crown. Mets pitcher John Maine and former MLB pitcher Neal Heaton narrowly missed out on the title, but both deserve congratulations as well. And, I beat Staple. Excellent.
Funny Cide's downfall was probably picking Cornell in the Sweet 16 and/or Minnesota and Florida State meeting in the East regional final. The guy followed his heart and you really can't blame him for that.
