Wrap up: The Teams of the Finals

By Joe Baker (Alek is posting this on behalf of Joe Baker) There’s only one game left, and that’s the one that matters: Tropic Blue’s AMBF4(Ever) versus the Forest Green Tigers.  Both Nick McGrane and Greathouse are going for their 3rd league championship, which will tie (either one of them!) with the legendary Phil the Showkiller. This time though, I’d rather not spend my time telling you how amazingly awesome both teams are (because they’re not) or how everyone is rooting for one or the other (because nobody is).  The reality is that if either Forest or Tropic has any fans, it’s only because that said “fan” finds one team to be slightly less obnoxious than the other. So, with that in mind, I’m going to break down the championship game from...

The Rest of the Report Cards: Maroon, Royal, Black, Navy, Forest, White, Red, Kelly and Tropic

Maroon5Ultimate (Maroon, 5-8) Subject Grade Comments Team Name F Let me be clear: I hate this name.  On the surface, it looks like they were named after a 17 year old ultimate camp follower who thinks that Maroon 5 is “dreamy” and that “5 Ultimate” is totally rad.  But then, you almost get the feel that it’s a hipster doofus move to say, “Yeah, we named ourselves this because some people think it’s cool.  But we know it’s not, so that makes us uber-cool.”  Either way, I hate it. Offense B- The Ol’ Smockster has a crippled team, but he has managed to survive due to key players stepping up, including Dylan Alexander, Daniel Conrad, Rose, Jake and Jojo.  If there were a character category,...

Report Cards for Lime, Purple, Pink, Carolina and Texas

Do you know what I like doing? Grading people.  Here are the report cards for Lime, Purple, Pink, Carolina and Texas.  Please have your reports cards signed by your parent/guardian and returned on Monday.  Enjoy. -Jack Skunk Shocktopuss (Lime, 9-4) Subject Grade Comments Team Name A+ Just a great name all around.  It’s cute, ties in to the team color and is unique. My only regret is that Ponz isn’t on this team, since he could have made an entire comic book based on this image.  Well done, Lime.  Wait.. Ponz is on this team! Where the heck are the pictures! You owe league! Offense A We all knew that Lime would be a dangerous team: DDP, Kellie and Timmy got Lee Raney a championship and even made Matt Yozgat look competent.  Now that...

Predictions for games 12 and 13

We’re in the homestretch for league and the playoff picture is starting to become clear.  Here’s what we know: Red is in excellent shape, Black and Royal are fighting for the 2 spot, while teams like Texas and Pink are looking to stop the bleeding.  So, here’s what’s going to happen: Kelly-Carolina- Green Eggs going Ham will take care of business today for a couple of reasons.  First, Kelly is surprisingly deep on defense, with the likes of Blunden and Varillas both coming to mind.  Second, Carolina is floundering; I like the roster, but the fighting Tux’s seem disjointed and out of sync.  If Nan can make it out and play though, maybe Scott Tran can surprise me with the win… but I doubt it.  Kelly by...
