Death by a thousand bananas the last two weeks. Sounds like most of my Mario Kart games!

Congrats Joel! It was a pretty close race.

Unfortunately I answered the first question before I knew Gray was out.

Whew… tough season of Mario… but I will take a top ten finish and run. However, I think we need to check the ballots again to make sure there no extra banana’s in the winner’s cart. 😉
