After 24 weeks, a PYW champion has been crowned, but who is it? Read on!
So we are here now. This is a statement that is true at any time or place that you say it, but we are here. 25 challenges later and we are ready to crown a Pit Your Wits champion for 2012. It's been a remarkable journey, we've laughed, we've cried, we've found the ratio between laughing and crying to be fluctuating.
Last week, we used piratedan7's challenge of plotting out a fangraph. Now, these are pretty long entries and you just want to see who won the whole thing, so here is a link to it and feel free to browse through it.
In honor of wailord, who began this feature last year, I will use his nicer looking medals for the awards for this challenge.
So there is a clear winner of this challenge and a clear winner of the competition. The competition was very close. It was decided by one point between three people. In fact, one rec on this past challenge was the difference between who won and who didn't.
I am going to use an unnecessary paragraph break to tease this.
Your 2012 Pit Your Wits champion is...
Here are the final standings!

And now a personal award that I give out in a subjective and capricious manner:
Clefo's Choice: Best PYW Entry of 2012
This is awarded to soco's entry in Week 10, which probably was the most effort put into any entry this season and, in my opinion, totally worth it.
So there we have it. Congratulations to all who won stuff, and I want to send a personal thank you to everyone who participated in some way this season, we had fun, no? We may see you again for more Pit Your Wits in 2013, where it will be ALL SPECIALIZED POETRY CHALLENGES.
Nah, just kidding..... OR AM I.
