Week 7 (of 9) COMPLETE!

Bobby: This & That –
1st, your hard count is due this week. By the end of business Sunday evening, you need to KNOW and CONVEY your best case scenario number to Myself, Bryan, or Brent. Team Captains should also include some contact info (this means a way that we can QUICKLY get a reply from you) as to your intentions to purchase extra chairs should your actual number be short of your Best Case Scenario.
In other words – you have 10 that would like to come – you find yourself in a slot for 8 chairs. will you be in the market for an extra chair or two were you given the chance? These are questions we will be needing answered in week 9. The off week before the finals will be used to organize, bring in extra tables, perhaps rent a tent for the uncovered patio, make a map of the room – ETC, ETC, ETC… So we need to know – NOW. Captains – start herding your kitties into orderly groups por favor…

Sunday – much was in flux heading into the Sunday Doubleheader, and United does what a champion does when there are questions pending – they answered them, both literally and figuratively. 103 @ Allens and a win and 97 @ Amici & a win. This opening week of the home stretch was an opportunity for United to ask a question of the field, and simply stated it is this – “How does my ass taste?”
B8Shaq’s (76, 56 @ Amici) critical error on #20 @ Allen’s wound up costing them 39 points on the leaderboard, and allowed an extra 3 for United. Experience take a well earned 2nd (95) and Air Force sneak away with 3rd (91)
also at Allen’s –
Muffins – 81
JJ – 61
Rash – 82
T2RB – 90
The more I watch T2RB, the more their tournament is reminiscent of Yosef’s cumulative in MTM III. Maddeningly just out of reach for these cats. They are 4th place at every other point update regardless of the questions asked or the opposition on hand… If you asked them to do it on purpose it’d be damn near impossible. Their answers reflect great ability and well rounded acumen… and yet… They are flying under the radar right now, but I think they are dangerous…
And to add a Coda to last week’s episode of ‘handbags’ at the bar – nada. Not a single word. Apparently all of his promises to kill me or whatever were hollow. He left and never reappeared.

At Amici – I am overjoyed that Amici seems to have recovered from the funk we were in there. That show has been money for so long and to have to slog through most of last summer with half empty shows was frankly a bit concerning.. Tonight – 20 teams! That’s 3 of the last 4 weeks with over 17 teams. (((sigh)))
Slow Children snipe 2nd breaking a long drought for these guys – good work. Jimmy Jams add a 3rd (74)
Also-
Horsedick.mpeg – 58
FMAF – 62
Rash – 58
T2RB – 55

A longstanding tradition is that after the field is set, and it appears to be at this point, I will offer worthy teams from our past an opportunity to buy into the finals. Of course they will go to the bottom of the leaderboard and will only be allowed 4 seats unless some become available, but nonetheless can choose to accept and play.
This year’s invitees are –

Utter Chaos (don’t worry, they’ll politely decline, which is a good thing for you)
Maroons
Unanimous Dissension

They’ll have a week to pull the trigger by bringing me the $100 and I’ll keep you posted.

Week 7 is over… Two more to go.. .

Brent:  Here are the storylines to watch in Canton this week: Muffins made it a 2nd straight no-show on Tuesday in Canton last week, and is it a coincidence the cumulative is starting to slip from view?  Ray-Ray is teetering on the line between 6 chairs and 8, and they’ll need every chair they can get.  They’re relying on Wednesdays right now, but it’s a dangerous game they’re playing, as one off-week could derail their so-far impressive ascension.  Challenged keeps sliding and hopes they can be the Kramerica of week 8.  One of Posse’s 2 QB’s is gonna be in Vegas this week, so they’ll be short-staffed.  Will B8shaq return for more Monday performance points?  Red had a bad week last week despite playing 4 games, and I predict an immediate bounceback, as they don’t let the crappy nights bother them the way some teams do.

Might Bobby Brown vs. BOE send some scouts to Canton?  It could be a $500 decision if they did…

    Don’t know which is the official tally, this one or the one on Facebook, but we should have 817 total points. It’s correct on facebook but shorted by one here.
