TD said...

Well here we go again.

TD said...

I hope these are the posts that count.

TD said...

If I did it correctly, there ain't gonna be much scoring here.

Mr. Customer said...

Here's the crossing pass...

Mr. Customer said...

It's in the back of the net!

TD said...

Is the first that comment that counts at 12 pm PST or 12 pm EST??

Mr. Customer said...

Well, that's one better than yesterday. Hopefully J Steve brings his "B" squad.

Mr. Customer said...

Sweet Jesus, I thought it had already started! That's a relief.

Eric Karros said...

First 2 comments between 12noon and 3pm are the ones that count (all times PT).

rbnlaw said...

OK, how do we click on the individual comment? I just don't get it. Is it a right-click thing or what?

TD said...

Okay. Be back at 12 PM PDT (3 PM EST).

Wicks said...

FC Wicks will be employing a 3-4-3 today to maximize scoring chances!!!!

Eric Karros said...

rbn, you have to view the comments from the individual post view (not the "Post a Commnet On" view).

So click on the individual post, then scroll down to the comments, and hover over the timestamp of your comment and you should see the url if you have view status bar activated (otherwise just click the timestamp and it should go to the url).

Fred's Brim said...

EK, i like the pic!

J. Steve said...

I like the pic, too... it's probably the closest I'll ever get to Charlize Theron!

rbnlaw said...

Thanks. I'll give it a try.

Scott said...

This is U.S. History, I see the globe right there.

Scott said...

Learning about Cuba and having some food.

rbnlaw said...

OK, got it figured out. Thanks, EK.
The intrawebs is a fascinating thing.

Mr. Customer said...

For some reason, now I have a craving for Cuban food...

TD said...

Well I hope it's time.

Greg said...

Clock strikes twelve!

Greg said...

Here comes my second zero

TD said...

Maybe this is the second one.

Greg said...

2 + 6 = 8 for yours truly. Time to jump off for lunch. Good luck to everybody I'm not playing against today.

Mr. Customer said...

Just 2 quick comments...

TD said...

Well, let's see how it goes.

J. Steve said...

This one's for you, Mr. C!

J. Steve said...

This one, too!

J. Steve said...

An 8 combined! Apparently I'm not going to make it out of the group round...

Fred's Brim said...

cmon fellas, lets make the people back home proud!

rbnlaw said...

And we're underway in Capetown.

Fred's Brim said...

they are so unproud right now (just like the English)

rbnlaw said...

Cripes. A zero for my opening salvo.
Hope this finds the mark.

Mr. Customer said...

F you, zero!

al-Khwarizmi should have kept his damn yap shut!

Fred's Brim said...

oof 0 + 3? you impotent twat!
now I can go back to my old avatar

I preferred Flo anyway

rbnlaw said...

My mistake. I looked at the url for my ID.
A 7 and a 6 for me.

Looks like I have a good chance of wrapping up my place in the elite 8 today.

Mr. Customer said...

Victory! The late goal by Kuyt wins it in stoppage time!

(Taunting algebraic concepts apparently works)

Fred's Brim said...

i should have done more taunting - i can only hope for a forfeit at this point

TD said...

Can someone look at my posts and tell me what my score is? I can't get it to work on my work computer.

fanerman said...

Here we go. I'm back at work after staying home sick yesterday (and being stuck in bed completely useless on Sunday).

fanerman said...

Oy. Was that a 0 or a 10? I hope for my co-worker's sake that I am no longer contagious.

djansson said...

Check

djansson said...

and check

Jason said...

Sorry FB, no forfeit today. I'll miss the avatar though.

fanerman said...

TD, I believe you got a 3 and a 1.

Jason said...

And just to rub it in...

Fred's Brim said...

haha Jason you evil bastard!

i'll be pulling for you in the coming rounds!

Josh S. said...

@FB: "I preferred Flo anyway"

I KNEW IT!!!

Wicks said...

Quick kick!!!!

Wicks said...

Crap I got yellow carded!!!!!

Jason said...

Thanks FB. Good game {high five} good game {high five} good game {high five}...

Wicks said...

Looks like I have drawn today. One point is better than none!

TD said...

fanerman, thanks. I appreciate it. Not looking good.

Eric Karros said...

Scores updated, please verify accuracy...

Josh S. said...

@Jason: "Good game {high five} good game {high five} good game {high five}..."

That's why I support RFDI, Reviving Flo vs. Deltalina in Inner-cities!

Eric Karros said...

DB vs Greg was a good matchup.

Josh S. said...

Oooooh. I woulda gotten TROUNCED today.

Steve Dittmore said...

Another tie? Seriously, we need PKs...

Eric Karros said...

I can't believe Jason beat FB with a 6 total.

Anyhow I think I'm gonna change up the tiebreaker rules if any participants are tied after tomorrow's round. Will have a shootout of sorts instead of going with differential, etc.

I'll ruminate a bit and explain tomorrow.

Steve Dittmore said...

A 1 on the first post? Great. I score as often as a real futbol team.

Steve Dittmore said...

Woo-hoo ... a 9

Scott said...

I didn't see my score updated, just wanted to make sure I'm in this time!

Mr. Customer said...

Oooh! The draw in the other match opens up a second chance to advance!

Jason said...

Scott, looks like you need 1 more post before 3 pm PST

Greg said...

Haha, it's like I'm drawing all the way out of the group stages

Greg said...

@EK - I think part of the issue here is the fact that we're only looking at the final digit, the scores would be a lot higher (thereby introducing more variability) if we had looked at the last 2 digits.

Keven C said...

Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!

Keven C said...

C'mon, Big Bucks. No whammies. ... no whammies ... and .... STOP!

Matt said...

Can I win the group today?

Matt said...

Not a "0" Not a "0"...

Scott said...

I posted three times but they didn't seem to count.

Scott said...

Awww, my fault! Had the timing wrong. I'm a recent transplant still getting used to east coast time. Off by three hours on my first two posts!

Eric Karros said...

Scott, only your first 2 comments between 12noon and 3pm count.

You got them in though now, and you got 15, so far a tournament high!

Jason said...

fanerman continues to intimidate and might force a forfeit for the second day in a row. Will anyone step up to take on the juggernaut?

Eric Karros said...

Only Bryan is pending...

Eric Karros said...

Opponents take one look at fanerman's prowess with the 'enter' key and run for the hills.

Eric Karros said...

Greg - I actually started off planning to do the last 2 digits, but changed it to 1 specifically to increase the probability of a draw.

Though I admit I didn't think there would be this many. I thought maybe 1 or 2 across the 3 rounds.

Jason said...

I fear no enter key! (I do however fear the dark, totem poles and the sound made when quickly peeling duct tape)

Wait, was that out loud?

rbnlaw said...

Well fuck me in the armpit. I swear the AR's flag was up on Scott's second goal. Where's video replay when we need it?

Coulda been a handball as well.

Bryan said...

let's see how this goes

Mr. Customer said...

So, Jason and DB are through to elimination play? That's amazing, I was sure there would be more with six, but no dice.

Fanerman could also clinch, pending Bryan's second leg result.

fanerman said...

I was trying to keep my mouth shut and not tempt fate and hope Bryan would be a no show, but Jason already jinxed me. The odds look like they're on Bryan's side now.

Greg said...

@EK, heh, I thought you might have done that to tease out some ties but that's how statistics'll fuck ya! I wonder if I can go for an unprecedented third draw tomorrow. It amuses me too that yesterday I got 9 and today I got 8.

Mr. Customer said...

Whoa, got ahead of myself. Dusty's at least got a tie for the second slot locked up if he loses outright to the Good Professor tomorrow.

Mr. Customer said...

@Greg

Lies, damned lies, and all that...

Dusty Baker said...

I checked here 1st after I landed and b4 I called Mrs Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. Customer said...

Good thing you didn't use those as your 2 posts, Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

What wld I have scored? Good thing those were only friendlies w Bulgaria and San Marino.

Bryan said...

let's see

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

Woulda been a 6.

Also, congrats to your Blues. A group win is a group win, even if you have to draw with APOEL to get there.

Mr. Customer said...

Late substitution for Bryan pays off!

Jason said...

My bad fanerman, I'm usually only good for the reverse jinx.

fanerman said...

Damn.3

Greg said...

Mr. Customer - haha, exactly!!

Mr. Customer said...

Only two eliminated today (stay strong J Steve, I still could use a spoiler), and group D is a dead heat!

fanerman said...

That "0" really killed me.

Steve Dittmore said...

Group B
Dusty 4 pts; 19GF; 15GA
Keven 3 pts; 19GF; 17GA
Greg 2 pts; 17GF; 17GA
Me 1 pt; 19GF; 21GA

Looks like I need a new keeper...

Greg said...

Thanks for the group breakdown there Steve, looks like I won't be able to draw my way into the next knock-out stages, need to win against Keven

Josh S. said...

"Looks like I need a new keeper..."

He didn't let the Quaffle in,
Weasley is our King!
