Razzball Commenters League Commissioner's Recap (RCLCR)

A miserable (for me) anticlimactic tie in KarlJ's favor was somehow changed to a .5 win for the mighty Bacon Bits. Thank you Baseball Gods, I guess you are finally repaying me for all those Marlins games I've gone to. It was a great season that saw a surprise frontrunner for the majority of the season in Cruisin' only to see the injury bug bite in August, allowing things to get interesting at the end. I don't want to ramble on for too long here, I get to do that in a blog entry! I bet you're all excited, suckers.

Seriously though, I look forward to doing it again next year but maybe with a bit less drama.

Congrats, p0rk. Pretty wiley of you to hack the StatTracker. It wasn't enough to win, but you had to make it appear KarlJ won at first. Either way, well played. Just remember no one would've won if it wasn't for all my advice. There would've been a 16 team tie for last.

Email me the post whenever you get it.

Top 10 reasons why Hippo didn't win the RCL.

10. Too slow to outrun a girl
9. Felt sorry for Doc Holliday, what with the bad lung and everything
8. Got used to Summerdog's hot breath on my privates
7. Hippos don't have opposable thumbs
6. Ben Francisco?
5. Luis Ayala hates Hippos and big apple's, not necessarily in that order
4. Maybe bacon bits do go on top, I always eat em directly from the can
3. Yahoo uses the stattracker from Palm Beach County, Florida
2. Bartman
and the #1 reason Hippo didn't win the RCL.....

Location, Location, Location...you can't win a 16 team league playing from 11th place.

HA! As I said in the RCL, "wait until next year." That line is right on the tip of every Red Sox fan and works every October 1.
Wait until next year when the hippo is the lucky recipient of the silent but deadly dog farts.

I like to keep it suspenseful - like the movies where the dead protagonist shows up at the end miraculously unharmed and saves the day. Give me until the weekend or so for the post if you don't mind. I just moved into a new place so i need to unpack and then I start the new career on Wednesday.

Yeah, it was like The Sixth Sense of fantasy baseball finishes.

Congrats Pork!

Grey, if the reason Pork won was all the great advice you gave, then is the reason I didn't the same?! Just playin.

I lost b/c my team sucked, and for whatever reason I was never able to make up ground in RBI, HRs and I learned that punting is something that should only happen in football. In bigger leagues like this, punting is awful strategy.

I hope we do a full season next year, and maybe Grey and Rudy could be in a league with us as kind of a beat the 'perts thing?
