After the First Day

The first day did not go quite how it was supposed to.

Only 3 full teams showed up to play their scheduled 3 game series.

Only Team Rehab and Team Billy Tibbets played their first round series which resulted in a pair of hard fought, 2-1 victories for Team Billy Tibbets.

Team Alternate did what I expected and failed to show up. Only rjpucla showed up from the team. So Team Alternate will be replaced with a BYE.

The Bread Line =
They will play their first round game tonight against Team Man Jam at 8 p.m. The teams can play sooner if everyone gets online. I was going to give The Bread Line a Loss for last night but it would not have been fair to Pittsburghler and DarkJustice.

The Bread Line is on probation however. The updated schedule is here. We will attempt to get two rounds in tonight.

Apparently we are playing best of 3 to determine a winner. That being said, you're telling me we are going to get through possibly 3 games in a matter of 45 minutes?

How bout having guys from team alternate (if any show up) and the team that has a bye be substitute players for other team missing a player or 2...and if the substitute doesn't play fair (is trying to make your team loose) , the game doesn't count, it wouldn't have been played anyways

I hope to be on for the game at 9:15 tonight. My kid is sick, so hopefully he will be asleep by then! I will be on as soon as I can get him into bed. Sucks being the old man in the group!
