Flo vs Deltalina: Round 2-C Begins!

Wow, did any of you guys watch that rbnlaw-Scott game last night?

For those who didn't catch it, you missed an instant classic. Here's how it went down: Ten minutes after the starting gun, rbn busted out with a formidable 13. One-three, baby! He was, understandably, feeling pretty good. But get this: Scott kept his cool and played it perfectly. Noticing the over-pursuit, he threw down some decoys, feigned naiveté and confusion, then moved in for the kill with a 15. A 15! Are you kidding me?

Well played, Scott. Well played. And now Group D is in a four-way dead heat. Bring on the final round!

Here are yesterday's full results:

GROUP A
Jason def. Fred's Brim, 6-3
Matt def. TD, 12-4
GROUP B
Keven C def. Steve Dittmore, 12-10
Dusty Baker ties Greg, 8-8
GROUP C
djansson ties Wicks, 9-9
Mr Customer def. J Steve, 14-8
GROUP D
Scott def. rbnlaw, 15-13
Bryan def. fanerman, 13-8

Today it's 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3. Here's a review of the format and rules.

Remember, only your first 2 comments on or after 12noon PT matter, and you must make them by 3pm PT. And after today, the top two in each group advance*. Good luck!

*If there are any impactful ties in the overall point standings at the end of this round, I will explain the tiebreaker process shortly thereafter.

BWAHAHAHAHA!!

Naivety and confusion, you've got me down pat!

rbnlaw said...

The rbnlaw Football Federation has filed it's appeal with the governing body regarding the flagrant handball used by Scott to settle the ball in the penalty area; thus allowing him to get an uncontested shot off before the conclusion of injury time.

In other words, we're just as screwed as the Irish. At least I have today to fight on (that was in NO WAY a USC reference. . .good luck in the Nut Bowl, Trojans.)

Fred's Brim said...

J Steve and I are going for the golden sombrero today!

what do they call it in the world cup when a team is swept out of the tournament in the first round? Concacaf?

Josh S. said...

I predict an 18 today.

Greg said...

Need a win today but also kinda cool if I got another draw.

Josh S. said...

Action begins in just a few minutes, but first, T-Pain performs the national anthem of Algeria!

TD said...

Can't do any worse that I did yesterday.

TD said...

Unless you count the day before.

Jason said...

TD with a 17? There goes my perfect record in group play. Sheesh.

Jason said...

Playing out the string...

Greg said...

Greg said...

Let's go for that 18!!

Greg said...

hahaha, and I go crashing out...

0 + 0 = 0

fanerman said...

Alright, here we go.

fanerman said...

And this one makes two.

fanerman said...

Well that's not good news for me...

Wicks said...

FC Wicks looks to score early and late this round. Just like Tiger.......aaaaaaaa-oooooooo!!!!

rbnlaw said...

I could secure my place in the next round with this shot. . .

rbnlaw said...

Secured with a 5 on the first salvo. SWEET!

By the way, I hate having to secure my place in the next round against fannerman. It's like Scotland turfing Ireland.

fanerman said...

Ouch. Lost to someone with a score of 5. So winnable.

Eric Karros said...

Wow Greg...the comment-url-assigning Gods can be cruel.

Or in TD's case, quite benevolent.

TD said...

...or very, very, very benevolent.

TD said...

Of course he be making up for the boning he gave me yesterday, too.

fanerman said...

Oh nevermind.

Dusty Baker said...

4? fuck that. hate this game. i mean, i love it when i do well.

signing off so my colleagues won't think i'm a total idiot.

djansson said...

A one

djansson said...

and a two...

djansson said...

equals a total of four. Dang it!

fanerman said...

Looks like I'm not the only one not doing well today.

Mr. Customer said...

Wicks with a first leg 9?!

Whoboy, this could be ugly.

Mr. Customer said...

Six is respectable. Hoping for more this time.

Mr. Customer said...

ONE!?

I have tasted relegation, and it is bitter.

Eric Karros said...

Man what's with all the low scores today? TD and apparently Wicks are the only exceptions.

Mr. Customer said...

Greg,

That's an amazing result.

Wicks said...

Sweet victory!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Wicks,

Way to add insult to injury with that 16.

Fortunately, Keven C only needs a 1 to carry the Team Flo banner to the group of 8.

Scott said...

This post’s just six words long.

Matt said...

Will it be tie breakers in Group A?

Matt said...

If it is, I may be screwed anyway!

Steve Dittmore said...

Looking to come from last play and leap into the second round...

Steve Dittmore said...

Dusty - You really at Rayburn Building? Tell Joe Barton I'm waiting his reply to my tweet about HR 390.

Mr. Customer said...

So it looks like there will be tiebreakers in group B, possibly in group A, as well.

Stick a fork it group C, it's all over but the hooliganism.

Group D still has 1 slot for advancement.

Fred's Brim said...

*takes deep breath*

Fred's Brim said...

Is this Sale of the Century? if so I say LOWER!

Fred's Brim said...

haha that's awesome

like an open bottle of Becks sitting on the back porch the morning after a party, i've been skunked!

Keven C said...

Wow. A clean sheet by the KC defense, but can the offense come through with a score?

fanerman said...

Lots of low scores today.

Keven C said...

On to the knockout phase!

Fl-ole! Fl-ole, Fl-ole, Fl-ole! Fl-ole! Fl-ole!

Wicks said...

Mr. C:

I was thinking about not taking my second shot but wasn't sure if it was against the rules. Sorry to go Pete Carroll on you!

Fred's Brim said...

J Steve's gotta get a win today, unless he's a no-show

Mr. Customer said...

@Wicks,

No worries. I should probably try sucking less.

Scott said...

Well, gave it my best shot. We'll see how it works out!

I just wish I would have chosen a cooler user handle.

almost missed it today.

Eric Karros said...

Is J Steve throwing in the towel today?

Bryan said...

let's see

J. Steve said...

Here's hoping for something big!

J. Steve said...

I'm eliminated, but I want some points on the board...

J. Steve said...

I had a long lunch meeting and almost missed the deadline... It looks like no golden sombrero for me! Thanks djansson!

J. Steve said...

sorry, FB...

Greg said...

EK & Mr. Customer - effin' sad is what it is. I think going through all the rounds, I got the most 0s. Bastards!! Thems are the breaks I guess.
