Fall 2010 Tournament Brackets

Hello Party People.  What are the haps?  It's tournament time... and that means illegal gambling!  You heard correctly, WAKA HQ!  We're betting actual dollars (not YellaBucks) amongst ourselves... and there's no way for you to get any of it!

Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if registration was increased next season.  Obviously the "powers that be" took Economics 101 and decided if we can still afford to bet drinks every week, we have not reached equilibrium on the supply/demand curve as related to price.  Nevermind that the season party last weekend was the worst attended in about 8+ seasons.  Or that I've had entire teams tell me they don't want to return next year.

But we'll hammer out all those issues in the long and looming off-season.  For now... it's bracket madness!!

We're going to up the ante and drop the panties for this season.  This means each bracket costs $5 (as opposed to $3 in previous years).  On FRIDAY the tournament picture will be complete.  Use the link on the right side of this blog and print out your bracket. Find me at the fields and be sure to include:
  1. Your name on the bracket (you can submit up to TWO brackets).
  2. TOTAL RUNS scored in the championship game.  This will be used as a tie-breaker, with under trumping over (example: Nate and Frank tie. Nate says 8 runs will be scored in the finals, Frank says 10.  Nine runs are scored so both missed by one.  Nate wins since he was under).
  3. $5 per bracket, obviously.
Correct picks will worth 1-2-4-6 points as the tournament progresses.

I'll be out at the fields early so be sure to find me BEFORE the games start (Gorecki).  Last season the winner got $57, so don't miss out!

------------------------
Oh... almost forgot.  The regular season picks have come to an end.  Let's dish out some props, shall we?
  • The Grand Pick Master this season is Alison. In order to qualify for this title, you needed to submit picks every week of the season. Ten people qualified, and Alison beat out Geoff by one correct pick to finish with a 78.4% average!
  • Refill Kevin won the most drinks (and the most net-drinks) guzzling down 12 during the season. I think a few of us still owe him so be sure to pay up on Thursday.
  • Caruso lost an astonishing 31 drinks this season, shattering all previous records. Basically... if you submitted picks... you probably got a free drink off Caruso.
Thanks for playing everyone!

    Geoff said...

    Damn you Alison for stealing away the glory and pride of not getting a prize for being awesome!

    Fozzie Bear said...

    Wait so the same season that Chan and Alison are Facebook Official, Alison just so happens to win the Grand Pick Master?!?!?! Hmmm something doesn't smell right to me, in fact it smells a little fishy!! Next thing you're going to tell me is that the government didn't have anything to do with 9/11!!

    Chandler said...

    You know, Fozzie... Vagisil Feminine Wash is recommended for DAILY USE!

    Rollo said...

    I'm missing tonights game and the tourney :o( I'll be in NY! Have fun all and GOOOOOO Superbad!

    Nate Dawg said...

    Aaaaand Superbad's odds for winning the tourney just got better...

    Chandler said...

    Zing...

    Florian said...

    I guess Rollo will never pay his debts owed since he doesn't go to the bar anymore (or kickball for that matter).

    Chandler said...

    Good point, Flo. But don't worry... bad Karma will catch up to him.


    Actually, since he named his dog Karma... maybe she'll poop on his pillow or something.

    M. Gorecki said...

    So whos gonna be the DM (designated munter) now for superbad?

    and chandler i fear change so plan on the usual of me asking for a blank copy of the tourney bracket from you probably after the first round of games have commenced.

    M. Gorecki said...

    .. or should we call it a BM (best munter) as that's what Karma is gonna lay on Rollos pillow later.

    Rollo said...

    Superbad doesn't need me. That team is amazing.

    Hey Flo are you sure you are still allowed to post on here? You should go ask your team.

    Everyone i owe drinks to find Chandler. Hes gonna cover me. Ill give him sexy time later.

    Geoff said...

    I'm pretty sure you still owe me a drink Rollo.

    What's this league turning into? Between Rollo going into hiding and Yella trying to find loop holes; how can we get honest gambling back in order?

    Rollo said...

    LoL ill buy you two next time i see you. The end of the season was just planned at a bad time :oP

    Chandler said...

    So it looks like I owe on Rollo's behalf: myself, Nate Dawg, Geoff, Kyle, Maria, Jack, Teneille, Brie, Rob, Griff, Bull, Florian, Paige, Alison, Gorecki, Todd, Smithkey and Natalie and Refill Kevin.

    Just find me if you're on that list and remind me.

    Nate Dawg said...

    Sounds good...looking forward to that delicious beverage

    bull said...

    Beer, Beer, I love it so!

    Alison said...

    WOOHOO!!! GRAND PICK MASTER!!!!!!!

    Since I didn't win in Vegas this is at least a little bit of a win. Wish I won something tangible, though. Like beer.

    Fozzie, SHHHH!!! Keep it down. Don't go telling secrets about the picks I submit publically each week that everyone can see. Certainly can't have anyone knowing about that.

    Fozzie Bear said...

    I'll give you something tangible...

    Alison said...

    Oh Fozzie......you know me so well.
