Way back on March 27th, I posted the annual Camden Chat Pre-Season contest. 146 of you submitted your answers to the twenty-two questions posed, and the top score was 13. Three people matched that top score, so congratulations to Xari0tis, pjdougherty, and gregg2. Unfortunately gregg2 is not a valid Camden Chat username, so he or she won't be able to claim a prize. As for the other two, I'll be sending an email out to the address you have in your SB Nation account with instructions.

If you'd like to see how you did in the contest, click here. (hint: it'll be easiest to find your name with CTRL+F, unless you're on a Mac in which case I'm sure you're already smart enough to know the right command)
