Thanks to all moderators and guests to Royals Nation for participating.  And for those not familiar with the site, we conduct these Survivor contests often.  Be on the lookout for another game - happening soon.  Also, all front page articles (and some diary articles) are linked over at the site - so the blogocelebrity-dom of such RR frequentors as NYRoyal, NHZ, JQ, and of course royalsreview himself is expanded to but one more site!  :-)

Another contest will likely take place in late 2008.  In the meantime, are there any thoughts on this year's contest?  How in the sam hill was Billy Beane eliminated thus early?  Why all the hate for J.P. Ricciardi (oh, yeah, that's right....)?  Doug Melvin 24th?  How?  If anyone has more spare time at their hands, the complete thread is below:

In the meantime, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanzaa to all RR frequentors and contributors!
