Every year in March, millions of Americans sharpen their No. 2 pencils and fill out brackets picking the college basketball teams they think most likely to win the NCAA Tournament. Now, Harry Potter fans across the globe all did the same thing - but instead of predicting basketball game outcomes, we made predictions about how the series would end. For us Potter prognosticators, we weren't suffering from March Madness, but Deathly Hallows Madness.
Similar to how college hoops fans attempt to select the winner from a pool of 65 teams, we had MuggleNet visitors choose their best answers to 65 Deathly Hallows-related questions! The fan whose predictions most closely matched the events that unfold in Book 7 on the 21st would win the opportunity to be a guest host on MuggleNet's Award-Winning Harry Potter Podcast, MuggleCast! In addition, 1st - 5th places would win a MuggleNet shirt and their choice of Alivan's wand.
BUT... we had a problem. Someone leaked Book 7 early, and there was a suspiciously high number of fans who guessed every question correctly, or nearly every question. Since we cannot ensure the legitimacy of the results, we had no choice but to select 5 random participants. So, congratulations to Raganarok, rainbowlaces, BigD, VGokub, and thewritewroute!
