As right now, we're even with CoC. Our Pumpkin won and The New Who's Zoo has lost.

Friends, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth. I have been in ballparks for seventeen seasons and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from your teams. Look at these small men. Which of you wouldnít consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day? Sure Iím lucky. Who wouldnít consider it an honor to have known all of Idgie's team names? Also, the builder of baseballís greatest league, Dancinns? To have spent six months with that wonderful little fellow, Twikoff? Then to have spent the next nine seasons with that outstanding leader, that smart student of psychology, the best manager in baseball today, Darkelf? Sure Iím lucky.


In closing, we have know all along my days have been numbered. After the proliferation of juice in the league, I can no longer compete. Therefore, WooDy's Round-up will be riding of into the sunset one last time. The fun is gone. This game is now a chore. The 2 week breaks ruin it for me, as the only thing that kept me motivated was the league. Thank you all, and see you around the farm!


P.S. Hey Thor
Spoiler:
I hate this game!

Your right about the user league IdgIe. I was getting the same feeling that Jon has last season then I got into a user league and I seemed to have refreshed my interest in the game, not to mention the various tournaments that one can be apart of. It's like a relationship you gotta keep it fresh to keep it interesting.

Sigh... add another win for the COC group... My team loses to the Sopranos....

And I'm losing pro games left and right.

maybe my lineup and position changes weren't such a good idea.

Hey, while you're out shopping, buy a keyboard with a working caps lock key. (seriously, all caps is not standard online etiquette...)

We're currently taking a 2 week break for the holidays. The next season begins, oh geez, ..............

[tangent] did anyone realize we kick back up again on New Years' Eve? We might have to delay things a day or two. Or perhaps give people a few extra days to play their league games, which is my preference...[/tangent]

Anyway, Mike, at that time, we'll have to assess who's still in, who has left our league and determine if we have any available spots in the league. We also have a Triple-A division which acts as a "waiting list", and you might end up there for a season to get a feel for how the league works.

But all this is up to our league commish, Dancinns. He makes all final decisions.

I'm not sure _I_ know what BB or BBV is. I assume one is BlockBuster, what's the other? BlockBuster Video?

Just wondering... Can Solipsta or Mater define anamorphic?

I had a feeling you did something. You've been down to 8* for at least the past few days.

Nice! I told you you'd win.

Really, our goal is to 10-10 or maybe 11-9 today. They have every advantage today, but we have the advantage tomorrow when games are played on OUR terms.

So what's the status? CoC 3, DTSL 2?

[Jumps on Paper Street Soapbox]

Typically BB is Best Buy, although depending on context can be used to represent BlockBuster

BBV is the accepted representation of BlockBuster Video, as not to be confused with BB (see above)


BTW, Darkelf said ASSES's

Actually.. I did the batting order and position changes just last night... All 9 of my startes are still in, I didn't move in any benchies.

I think I've been neglecting some skills.. Plus the fact that I let my team go 60 hours with no training one day last week definetly hurt them.

I'm fighting to maintain my 9*.. I seem to hold it for a day or 2 now and then back to 8*...

Actually, I see that Borst kicked butt with a 10-3 victory over Ladies of the Night, so I think the tourney is all tied up at 3.

Ah, of course, Best Buy. Yeah, BB definitely is suckekeke. I can't stand that place.

Shows you how often I frequent the actual DVD forums these days... It's all I can do to keep up with SmallBall, the Sports Forum, and Otter.

But, I _like_ BBV b/c I've gotten to know all the employees at my local store, and I have the Rewards system down to a science. They see me walk in and ask what I plan to get for free today.

60 hours? Ouch. That'll do it.

Isn't it amazing how much damage something like this can do to your team?
