    March to Box Office Madness 2012

    It’s back for a fourth year (and just a little bit late)!

    If you’re a fan of sports at all, or have ever worked in an office, there’s a good to great chance that you’re aware of the phenomenon that strikes America this time of year. That’s right – it’s March Madness, the 64 (er, 68) team college basketball tournament that drains efficiency from thousands of companies as workers kill their time...

    March to Box Office Madness 2011 Final Results – UPDATE!

    In fact, we have TWO winners!

    I don’t know if my scoring system for this tournament is ingenious or idiotic, but suffice it to say that it’s all in Excel and is dependent on formulas. Makes it great and easy in that I don’t have to manually add anything…but there’s one major flaw in the setup: it’s dependent on everyone copying & pasting and/or using the exact lettering that I have for the...

    March to Box Office Madness 2011 Final Results

    We have a winner! Some six months later, the spring/summer box office season can finally be declared finished, and with it, the March to Box Office Madness 2011 game.

    As usual, it was a tight race all the way down to the wire, as we had four individuals that absolutely crushed this. But it did come down to one winner, and that person did so by scoring a whopping 72 out of a possible 76 points, correctly predicting all but one...

    March to Box Office Madness 2010 Final Results

    We have a winner! Some six months later, the spring/summer box office season can finally be declared finished, and with it, the March to Box Office Madness 2010 game.

    It was a tight race all the way down to the wire, but our winner, with 65 points (out of a possible 76) is Justin G., who topped the “record” for total points (I say “record” because this is only the second year of the game) of 64 points by last...

    Blogger’s Box Office Predictions on MovieBlips

    Just a quick note to pimp something that I participated in recently. I was asked by Robyn of MovieBlips (a child of ShowHype, in a way) to answer a few questions about this summer’s movies and their projected box office takes. It’s a good read (similar to the questions I posed to the players of last year’s Summer of LAMB) and – even better – I was far from the only LAMB to play along. Also taking part were the...

    Summer of LAMB entry: DC Girl @ the Movies

    [Editor's Note: Our last entry (Matt from The Spoon) forgot to insert predictions for the box office dollars in his S.O.L. entry. He should have gotten together with DC Girl, who sent in a perfectly formatted and complete entry (thank you)...but sent it in past the deadline. Though she will be ineligible to win, her entry still deserved to be posted. Thanks to all that sent in their S.O.L. entries - a scoring update will be published...
