MTM XII: Week 3, Wednesday

TJ: The story of the night in Athens is that long time MTM team and sports powerhouse, B8shaq have given up on qualifying for MTM 12 and have joined up with Jimmy Jams. Jimmy Jams is pushing hard for the cumulative title this year after their shocking absence from MTM 11. They just got a lot better.

Jimmy Jams(7) 103-9
Denim Chicken(7) 102-6
Phasers(8) 99-3
United(4) 95
Robot Monkeys(7) 88
Kitten Mittens(5) 46
Rural Jurors(5) 45
Rash(3) 31

Darby: This actually happened tonight during #15
Woman DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME raises phone in air.
Me: What are you doing?
Woman: I’m shazaming this to see who it is
Me: Wwww-what?
Woman: Oh don’t worry we’ve already written it down.
Me: Goddamn it… Did you go to public school?
Drew from #9: You cussed on the mic. I’m very happy.

Old Yeller (10 attendance) earns the invite tonight with a strong 104 points, they’ve been given the 5 team warning, so we will see how this shakes out. #9 finishes 2nd with 96 (3 attendance). Fact Hunt earns 3rd with 81 (3rd place). Experience (4 attendance) finishes out of the performance points with 77 and they are looking at their bidding and thinking about what might have been. Buckhead Rednecks 69 (1 attendance) and the rest are non tournament teams.

Bobby: Big Scoring game in Atlanta as tournament heavyweights flexed their gray muscles with post-able scores.

Kramerica (6) overcome an early pick 7 to run at the top for most of the 2nd half only to be reeled in by Muffins (7) on question 19. They duel in OT and Muffins snipe a very useful win (110). Oedipus (6) are a ridiculously strong 3rd – 109.

BBvBoE (7) settle for best of the rest @ 107 (ouch).

Also –

FFA (5) – 91
Fetus (4) – 91 Invited..

One of the most forgotten top 3 finishes was Fetus’ 3rd place @ MTMVI. Now, once again the post-zygote menace is available for tournament mayhem should they choose.

We shall see…

Brent: No sign of newly invited Wednesday regulars Chipper’s Lipper at Johnny’s, so there are no new entrants into MTM to report.  Buckhead Rednecks (3) copied last week’s blueprint – miss the halftime question, go on to score 96 – with precision and take the win.  Cantonese Warriors take 2nd with 95 and are now mulling over their MTM options, though I’m pretty sure they’re leaning towards passing on it.  I will try to talk them into the Pairs Game, however (and Night @ The Movies might interest them as well).  Ray-Ray is 3rd with 89 (5).  McNuttski (2) posts a 54, Challenged was held back by a bad start (70, 3), and the Migrating Coconuts had a rough night (38,6), but we’ll give ’em a break – they found out last night that Oklahoma City was bombed, so let’s give ’em some time to deal with that, shall we?

Ok, leaderboard stuff…  We say goodbye to Bald So Hard & Chick Filatio… Warriors aren’t listed, but they’re smart enough to figure out around where they’d be on this board if they are so inclined.  Here are the ‘invited’ and the days their bubble is set to pop:

Thursday – Free Mexican Air Force
Monday – Comfortably Dumb
Tuesday – Chipper’s Lipper
Wednesday – Fetus
Wednesday – Cantonese Warriors
Wednesday – Old Yeller

5 spots remaining, and the rumor mill has Old Yeller possibly entering MTM today to become team #26.  Lipper would very much like to, but might take the chance and wait until Monday – 5 games might be played by then (not to mention what happens if we’re sitting on 29 at Taylor’s and Dumb shows up with their money first)…
