The Stock Market Crash Of 2008 (Game)

(BUMP) Since I was a few days early, I thought I'd revisit this post. Also, to clarify, we'll need a 10% drop intraday to meet the "crash criteria."

Okay, it's that time of year again...

All you have to do is name the date of this year's stock market crash.

Winner gets vodka with "Comrade Fly" at the Russian Tea Room, paid for (generously) by "Comrade Fly."

I'll start... September 24th.

HIGHLANDER IS VERY CLOSE TO "WINNING."

Danny,

See, I have the calendar memorized for the next 4 years.

Mdawsz, good to see you. Unfortunately, September 32nd is a Jewish holiday this year.

Market crashes early this year, like your guy "Wheels Off" Obama.

Intrade short obama long McCain was the trade of the year, just before he RNC.

Side benefit: perhaps Olbermann's head will explode on national teevee.

You have to admit, it would make a good youtube.

I say July 15 when dow touched 10962! I have 50% chance of winning this game.
The rest of you have 1/111 probability of winning this game as basically you are gussing any day in remaining 111 days :P.

I'll go with October 1st. Though, the trip to NY would be financially difficult. If I win you can have the prize...unless it also comes with a plane ticket.

CP,

No problem, "the Fly" says he will pay for your airfare. Also hotel accomodations for your whole family.
