In our first segment on CRL– let’s not mince words– I got my butt kicked by Tom Wilson in a game of NHL14. The stakes went like this: if I lost, Willy Baby would be the face of RMNB for a week, and if I won, Wilson had to sign something for me to give to you guys.
Problem: I didn’t know how to pick a winner impartially. Sure, I have a TI-83 and I know how to generate a random number, but I’m not Neil. I had to solve this my way.
Ashley and I printed out a number for every entrant, 1 to 136, in a semi-circle around the tube. Before we put a treat on each number, we made our furry friend go down the tube five times. He went in a different direction every time, probably because his brain is the size of a walnut. Sorry, Tricky. Just being honest.
Watch the video to see what number he selected.
If you are the winner of the shirt, please send us a message on our Facebook fanpage (so we can confirm your identity). Also please like our fan page because why aren’t you already. You’re totally missing out.
Thanks to every one who participated!
