PLAYOFF UPDATE 2nd Round
Ok, guys, the playoffs are in full swing and dare I say...exciting? Saw the comments from the last post, btw, never realized that everyone liked the blog so much. By the looks of the number of comments people regularly make, I thought it was a ghost town (well, when you take away the whining, bitching, and complaining). BOOM!!!!!!!!
If the matchups don't excite you, perhaps this will. A refresher on how much money you could be taking home-
1st Place 40.00% $480.00
2nd Place 30.00% $360.00
3rd Place 20.00% $240.00
4th Place 5.00% $60.00
5th Place 5.00% $60.00
So far, Tallcorn Cobras, Client #9, The Rockpile, and Jimmy's Daddy are assured some sort of payout. But the bump between 4th and 3rd place is rather large.
Amazing that the lower seed teams in every contest prevailed, setting the stage for a dramatic round two. Could Client #9 truly show his fantasy mettle by ousting the juggernaut that is Tallcorn Cobras? Will the Rockpile stave off a typical weekend comeback from Jimmy's Daddy? Will Clark & Addison put the final nail in Mr. Hackman's coffin, rendering Hoosier Heat a paper tiger who cannot come through when it counts. Not to mention this contest is worth $60 (as the 5th place team sees that payout). As Derek Jeter always says, "it's not the best team that prevails in the postseason, it's the hottest team".
Down in the bottom bracket, we have Fenway Ed fighting for relavence as he takes on 7 seed Lawndale Longhorns. In an amazing upset, Yankee Mike earns the right to tussle with 3K, which I'm guessing will turn into a carnival of trash talk. In the toilet bowl, The Ger takes on yours truly, PG.
Keep in mind, every point counts in this 6 season league. Good luck gentleman!!
