well I just lost another game but I'm happy cause I finally scored some runs, it was a 14-3 lost to Good Fellas but Crusty hit a 2 run homer and a solo homer so that gives me some hope I can still score runs

If anybody feels brave try this team: Highlander #35058

They are the #1 rated 9* team at this moment and I just took them out 11-7. Alien Redrum (Kings Horror) beat them the game before 7-4.

So let's see if we can put a few more DVDTalk losses on his column like we did to Dug's Doggies!

But you better enforce a curfew with your boys b/c they have to play my team in the morning.
Actually, that has yet to be determined, unless you have already conceded your game to WhoGirl tonight. I hold the tie breaker over the Goodfellas. Not that it matters - Shaolin at Fox or the Destroyers at Intel - it all sounds like a beating for my boys.

Yes, there's always twikoff:

-One of the most active posters.

-Organizes the BOTR.

-Chimes in on every topic of debate / discussion.

-One of the most eager to give tips/advice.

-Went to great lengths, even dropping to 3rd division, in search for a division title.

-ZERO trophies or pennants



Maybe this season... or the next... Hey, all I have is a BOTR trophy. But those are a few days I will treasue forever.

I survived a few. Then I thought I'd have a better chance in 2nd division so I put in the unstobbabul force. 2nd division was tough to get out of. Glad I didn't drop back down there. Next season will be a little more successful I'm hoping. This one is kind of a wash since I added my lefties and had to play with my bench most of the season. Oh well... it's working out.

haha...the boston red slops are my GF's team! I train them when she can't get the chance. She just likes to goof around, and challenge some of the guys on here.

Oh yeah, true.

Well, I have a feeling I'll lose to whogirl tonight. No way I'll beat her all 3 games this season.

Hold off on training until you know who you'll be facing, then prepare accordingly.

if not.. we could also consider the idea of tossing in like a buck or two a piece and using it to buy a stack of tickets to give out as prizes
I'm in favor of that. We have enough teams that the prize might be nice. I'm in favor of cash or women, as well.

Cheers

Yeah, but how many teams will pitch in? Everyone around here seems to expect me to win the Cup every season, and many of the newer teams may view it as just giving away money to one of the elite teams.

Personally, I think we should hand out 5 awards each season: 1 for each division winner (or playoffs, not sure which), and the 5th for the Cup winner. This spreads the winnings to the lower divisions. If you just reward the Cup winner, it's a case of the rich getting richer (ie, Yankees).

Rich getting richer

That's why we should all just kick the winner in the nuts. That's what he has the Champions Cup for- protection. [rimshot]

(yes, I realize this statement does not apply if a female wins. No, I do not think that will ever happen )

I've always thought that. I think an award for whomever comes out of each division in the playoffs and the Cup winner should get it, like you said. This would make the awards cost approx $25 which is about $1 per team every second season, no?

But maybe the commish still has some freebies for Tournaments and the cost will be less. But it's hard with the prizes. Just how many rookie tickets does someone want?

I see another survey coming on....

Cheers

I have a question regarding possible a tie for first place in Third Division.

What if Thunderchicken and Overpaid Players ended with same win-lose, then what happen? One game playoff against each other or you look on previous Thunderchicken vs Overpaid Players games?

The winner of their season series will get top spot.

I might finally get promoted out of the 4th pro league!

My record so far is 13-2 with 3 games left to play .722 winning %.

Bada Bing got promoted to the 3rd league last season, only 10 teams get promoted.

Hope my opponents forget about me or I get lucky! All in all this has been a great season.

You'll make it almost for sure. Congrats on a job well done!

And if no one else in the whole 4th league plays another game, I might make it too!!!

Cheers

Hopefully I don't see you in the 4th Pro League next season...




... because I hope to be in the 3rd Pro League. 8-2 so far with 8 more games to play, but only 10 advance. Almost everyone ahead of me has significantly fewer games left, so I expect to leapfrog a lot of people come Sunday...

And RainCity is doing well too.

Exactly, I bought 2 rookie tickets and don't want any more. I have enough lefty tickets to last awhile (it takes awhile before the new lefty becomes a viable option again). Stadium tickets I have no use for!!! Only thing left is holiday tickets I suppose, which are cool.

Quick train tickets? What about hats or shirts? You don't like flowers and candy? Goldfish! No?

Geesh, ur hard to please!

We each pop in a dollar and the winner or each division and the winner of the Champions Cup gets to spend $5 each at the Smallball mall on whatever they want. If you don't pay your dollar, your prize will go to the runner up.

I dunno, just spewing ideas here....
