It has been brought to our attention that our wild card post yesterday contained several errors.
First of all, we reported that "nobody picked an illegal wild card." This is blatantly untrue. Two people picked illegal wild cards.
Second, we praised Howard for his clever pick of Tennessee (#18 in the Top 25 linked to in the contest rules) as wild card when we should have vilified him instead, and possibly implied in him a lack of moral fiber, for his bald-faced attempt to skirt the rules of the contest.
Finally, we listed commissioner D Kedson's pick of Rhode Island (#16 in the Top 25 linked to in the contest rules) as a legitimate wild card when we should have pointed out he's been running this contest for 29 years (and also wrote, compiled, and posted the rules to this contest) and thus his pick suggests either a staggering lack of intelligence or the first signs of debilitating old age. At the very least, he should have known better.
