Atom-Bomb Bikini Playoff Challenge: The Results

Well, Monday night the Kings finished off the Devils, so the time has come to announce a winner in the Atom-Bomb Bikini playoff challenge as well. It was a crazy year...with all the upsets and a completely unexpected final four (not to mention the LA Kings inexplicable transformation into the '77 Canadiens), it didn't take many correct picks to slide into contention for some prizes!

To review the scoring...I awarded 1 point for each correct conference final team predicted, 2 points for each Stanley Cup final participant predicted, and 3 points for picking the Cup winner. Out of a possible 11 points, readers Craig W., Elliott S. and The Dave Show finished in a three-way tie for first place with 4 (yes, 4) points apiece. Now without further ado, let's pick a big winner!

Congratulations to Elliott Smith! He'll be receiving all kinds of cool stuff, including a custom piece of original artwork by yours truly of a pinup girl wearing the jersey of his favorite team (the Devils, maybe), along with a copy of the Atom-Bomb Bikini book, a copy of Old-Timey Hockey Tales, and a pack of Atom-Bomb stickers, a signed "Hockey Socks & Skates" print by Katie Sekelsky and a super-comfy, 100% made in the U.S.A t-shirt from the wonderful folks at Original Retro Brand ( have several of these myself, and trust me, they're the tops!) Our two runners-up, Craig W. and the Dave Show will receive the books and stickers! 

I want to congratulate all our winners, and thank all of my great readers for entering the contest! I especially want to thank my kind prize-providers, Andy at Original Retro Brand and Katie Sekelsky, and encourage you to visit and patronize their respective sites! 

Til next spring, when we'll do this all again!
