CJ's flop against Ness in '05 was the Most Embarrassing Result in B8 history

The Most Embarrassing Results in GameFAQs Contest history, based on how badly Board 8 and the Contest Gurus were out-predicted by "the casuals" (aka the number of brackets site-wide who predicted the match correctly).

Special Note: Neither the Board Odds Project nor the Guru Contest were in place until the Spring of 2004, so no Summer 2002 or Summer 2003 matches are eligible for this list. Additionally, this main listing is limited to 1v1 matches; see below for results from Summer 2007, Summer 2008, or the 2006 Battle Royale.
