Some Coin Flip Prognostication

Alright, I'm not gonna pretend I can break down the various playoff series with anything approaching expertise, but that doesn't mean I won't give my own half-assed predictions.  Here is how I spent my lunch hour at work today.

Methodology - I "simulated" the Stanley Cup playoffs by flipping a coin, the best 4 out of 7 throws being declared the winner.  In all match-ups the higer seed "wins" when heads is thrown, a tails means the lower seed wins.  The coin involved is a dime.  I thought I had some quarters in that desk drawer.  I will have to keep a closer eye on my co-workers.

Off to the action!

I've no idea how I got the coins to select so much chalk, but there it is.  Now that I "picked" it, it can feel free not to happen.
