Welcome to FvD, Round I, Sub-Round A. Here are the rules:

  • Tomorrow, sometime between 8am and 12noon PT, we will post a thread titled "Flo vs Deltalina: Round I-A Begins!".
  • When you see this, the members of each team must comment in the batting orders indicated above (which is the sequence in which you each signed up to participate).
  • The first team to get through their lineup wins the round.
  • Comments out of sequence are welcome, but do not count. For example, w.d.d.i.m. is welcome to comment immediately after Josh S, but his comment does not count towards the sequence. He must comment again after QuadSevens comments.
  • If a team member drops the ball and does not comment, that person's turn can be skipped only after waiting one hour. For example, if Team Deltalina leadoff man Fred's Brim makes his kick-off comment at 10:31am, but then rbnlaw is too busy to notice, Scott must wait until 11:31am to comment and continue the chain (Scott is welcome to comment earlier, but neither his comment nor any subsequent comment in his team's chain will count). In this scenario, rbnlaw will have effectively cost his team 60 minutes. Good job, rbn.
  • Rule addition/clarification: Likewise, if two consecutive team members are missing, the person following those two must wait two hours before commenting, and so on.
  • The game ends when either a) one team gets through its 14-member lineup, or b) at 10pm PT. In the latter case, whichever team got further through its lineup wins (in the case of a tie, whichever team's last commenter in the chain commented first wins).

Make sense? If not, ask questions here. Otherwise, see you tomorrow sometime between 8am and 12pm! And remember, the above only applies to Round I-A. The rules for Round I-B will be posted tomorrow.

Oh....I have depositions this week. It's not going to be good for the 7 hole.

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs-

Sometimes mindless SoSG competitions have to come before work and family, man. Get with the program!

Blogger up!

J. Steve said...

I have the over/under on the time between my comment and Dusty's at 30 seconds.

rbnlaw said...

Like I'm going to be too busy to futz around on the intraweb!
Ha! I say.

Someone's going to have to wake FB up at 11 am EDT to get our side going.

Fred's Brim said...

so it's appropriate that one captain is on the east coast (me) and the other has a newborn baby to wake him up early!

Josh S. said...

Any chance we can make it between 8:30 and 12:30? I'm in the car between 7:45 and 8:30. If not, that's cool. I just apologize to my team in advance if it gets posted at 8.

Steve Dittmore said...

I'm in class from 1030-1150 PT tomorrow. Not certain I can tell students to stop surfing the web in class and then do it myself. Fortunately, I'm near the end of the order...

fanerman said...

Okay... I'll try to sleep early. Easier said than done...

Steve Sax said...

depositions, class, traffic...

...come on guys, that's not the SoSG spirit!

QuadSevens said...

I see a lot of "refresh" button pressing in the very near future.

Eric Karros said...

Ok, it will be after 8:30, as I think this will benefit both Josh S and Steve D (on opposite teams)

Dusty Baker said...

Great, now that means I can't do it before I go in to the Assembly Health Committee hearing that I have a role in tomorrow morning. Hmmmm...will have to get serious about the Blackberry around that time, then, as sometimes mindless SoSG competitions have to come before the life and health of my fellow Californians.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm available at around 12:30, and if I can't get on there, then I guess we'll be waiting until at least 4:00

rbnlaw said...

Warming up on deck.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm screeching over to my Very Important Meeting so I might be able to post before it begins. Otherwise, I might have to break the laptop open during the meeting, at which time SoSG might get a bit more publicity than it wants.

Go Flo

Is anyone else having trouble seeing the comments in the Round 1-A post?
