Winner

1. Mike Hinterberg – 4 correct

1. Glenn Hahn – 4 correct

1. James Kirk – 4 correct

We have a 3 way tie for first! I didn’t expect that one at all. I need a tie breaker. Since we have to go on the data we have, I am going to use the differential based on 2 time-based questions. These guys all got either 2 or 3 so I took their 2 best.

1. Glenn Hahn +55 seconds

2. Mike Hinterberg +106 seconds

3. James Kirk +215 seconds

Since Glenn has his own set of Boston schwag already, I will give him the crown but pass the prize to our 2nd place finisher — Mike Hinterberg! Congrats, Mike. Must have been that magic spreadsheet you referenced. I have a gift from Boston for you. Shoot me your address via email. James, good show too!

Thanks for playing everyone!
