The Playbook season one finale: Jeff and Matt go out in style (video) 

By Matt Porter

Back in Episode 9 of The Playbook, our football predictions show, Jeff and I put it all on the line — the loser season-long picks contest would have to suffer a penalty of your choosing.

“Loser gets his head shaved” was the clear-cut winner, beating out some pretty good candidates (I’m pretty glad I didn’t have to run the ball against Dwyer, and my family and friends are happy I didn’t have to grow a creepy mustache).

We’ve been getting tweets, emails and Facebook messages about it. There’s been a … buzz … around the office. The day has finally arrived. Here’s the season finale of The Playbook. Jeff lost the contest, so he’s got a date with the clippers.

We’d like to thank several folks who made this possible: our bosses (John Bisognano, who did the voiceover in the intro, and Dave Tepps), for letting us run with our ideas. Thanks to the awesome Aisha Faquir, who films and edits the Playbook, and the rest of the Post’s multimedia staff, especially Joe Forzano, Dennis Malone, Erica Harvey and Mark Edelson.

Most importantly, thanks to all of you who watched and enjoyed the episodes. Cheers.
