What’s that? Random number generator? Coin flip tournament? Throwing darts? Informal polling of my co-workers? Well damn, where were you with all of these suggestions before I started putting the results post together?

Of course just because I picked three top-of-the-post winners doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of lower-in-the-post winners as well. Let’s take a walk down Pokken Tournament-meets-UFC lane and meet our friendly, face-punching neighbors.

Not going to recap the top winners this week. If you’d like to see them again, there’s a handy scroll thing on the side.

Wonderful job, everyone. Seriously, one of the best. There’s no way I can top this tomorrow, so tune in then for something boring and horrible.
