Everyone is so quick on the draw.  The first pick is official as long as the OWA timestamp starts with 2.

You've already won twice. Maybe you should give some of us non-winners a better chance and not pick 'til 3pm.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

Aw man I can't pick this year!  But at least that means the 2pm window doesn't count for me.
My pick would be 101.
Don't think twice, it's alright.

I can see why Budgirl didn't want to do it anymore.
