DarkUFO - Lost

Today brings to a close the ‘Iconic Prop Cup 2008’. Like last year, the cup provided a few surprises and a handful of upsets, but nobody ever said that life on this island is easy. You take the good with the bad, and the bad with the good, and you learn to survive.

In many ways you could say that this year’s prop cup mirrored last year’s prop cup. Both the 2007 and 2008 finals comprised of four Season 2 props, with three belonging to the Swan Station. Last year it was Radzinsky’s Map, the Swan Orientation Film, the Swan Computer, and Eko’s Stick. This year it was the Swan Timer, Radzinsky’s Map, the Swan Computer, and Desmond’s Photo.

That said, there is only one position that truly matters, and that is pole position. So lets hear it for the ‘Swan Station Countdown Timer’, which survived 6 rounds to be crowned the Iconic Lost Prop of 2008. I think a round of applause is in order. Hear, hear!

Commiserations to Radzinsky’s Blast Door Map, which failed to retain its place as prop king. That being said, 2nd place is no easy feat, and so congratulations are also in order.

The final standings are as follows:

Leave a comment and tell us your thoughts. Do you feel that the best prop won? Were the top four props deserving of places in the finals? Which props should have gone further in the competition? Will you sleep soundly tonight?

Farewell for now. It was emotional.

We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
