Celeb Garson Back On Top As We Predicted (Sort of)

Willie Garson
Willie Garson

Actor Willie Garson comes back (as we thought--see below) to take champion poker player Chris Moneymaker out of the lead for the second time. Stephen Collins also passes Chris to take second place on Chris's big loss on CMGI. Not too good of a day for most--as all of our celebs were down Wednesday, except for Ernie Hudson who gained almost $35,000 mostly on his sale of Electro Scientific, moving himself out of last place. Sad to say, Johnny Bench is back in last after being out of the bottom for the last few days. (sorry Johnny).

We said Wednesday that we thought Willie would get back into first because Theravance might pay off --it didn't. But the fall of CMGI for Chris was the difference maker. So we called it, just not for the right reason! (can we sell you a bridge in Brooklyn??)
