Josh S. said...

Go

Neeebs said...

See what they did. As a student of SOSG MM, Orel and EK got together and did a quick double post. People will log on and see the Gleek post by Orel, and MAY not notice EK sneaking in his Comment Time Thread. Pretty sneeky sis.

Dusty Baker said...

And the thousands of us who are participating in the crucial split squad ST GT might be thrown given our stelly focus on commenting about today's games. Sneaky, indeed.

J. Steve said...

I'm here!

QuadSevens said...

3 pointer up!

Betsy said...

awoooooo

Neeebs said...

How's that Chinese food in Taiwan, senora?

Keven C said...

Posting from the jury box. Don't tell the bailiff.

Steve Dittmore said...

whew... outside playing catch. almost missed this...

QuadSevens said...

Hmm...looks like I'm going to have to step it up if I make it to the next round. Both of my would-be opponents beat me to the punch this half!

Dusty Baker said...

^ Me @ 2:09 PM "steely"

Mr. Customer said...

I'm so screwed. Damn meetings...

fanerman said...

Damn work =(

Dusty Baker said...

Work, after all, is the curse of the SoSG contest class.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn life. Always getting in the way of blogs. Damn you, life!

Mr. Customer said...

Oh my God, why don't we just start a blog about how much we suck at posting in a timely fashion and write about it there.

Jason said...

Oh my God, why don't we just start a blog about starting other blogs where we can blog about what we should be blogging on other blogs! Blog!

Neeebs said...

I like it much better than when we talked about European Royalty. And I ALWAYS defer to Mr. C on that topic.

Dusty Baker said...

Meanwhile, looks like RB is Kansas in the Muno Regional.

Eric Karros said...

4 competitors still missing...

jmk said...

It's a perfect spring day on the beach in LA....computer? what computer?

Mr. Customer said...

@Neeebs,

Don't tempt fate, you know I'm always ready to debate the relative merits of the Valois and Capetian dynasties. Especially once I've been into the Bourbon.

Greg said...

@jmk - you mean you don't have SOSG set as the home page on your phone's browser?? That's so 1999!

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs and MrC-

Now you're talking!

Coincidentally I just found a Monarchs of England iPhone app over the weekend. It's not extensive but provides good basic info and timeline - helpful to settle barfights I might get myself into from time to time.

rbnlaw said...

Damn my employer's incessant firewalling. It has prevented me from being even remotely competitive in this round.

Answer sent.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, how I take offense to the "Kansas" comment.

Oh how I was rooting for Northern Idaho. Or is it Iowa? Whatever.

My favorite monarch stands as Aethelfrith, followed closely by Aethelred. Then there's Athelstan, King of the English. We just call him Stan.

Eric Karros said...

So far (as always, please correct me if wrong):

dusty leads rbnlaw by 3:41
S Dittmore leads jmk by 2:34
Quad lead Erin by ??
Jason leads Greg NoPhoto by 0:02
Loney Fan leads Fanerman by 1:56
Keven C leads J Steve by ??
Josh leads Mr C by 1:47
Neeebs leads Betsy by 0:15

Dusty Baker said...

Æthelred was so unready, though.

Mr. Customer said...

@rbn,

You're counting pre-Norman? Hardicanute. 'nuf said.

Dusty Baker said...

J Steve actually leads Keven C.

J: 2:15

K: 2:36

Someone else do the math.

Dusty Baker said...

Jason leads Greg NoPhoto by 0:02

This one's going to be a buzzer beater!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Can I throw in Prime Ministers?

Because if that's true, then I say Lord Palmerston

Dusty Baker said...

Svein, Forkbeard was clearly an ancestor to Casey Blake.

Eric Karros said...

Jason vs Greg headed for a NoPhoto finish?

Eric Karros said...

And yes, thanks for the correction Dusty (J Steve thanks you too):

dusty leads rbnlaw by 3:41
S Dittmore leads jmk by 2:34
Quad lead Erin by ??
Jason leads Greg NoPhoto by 0:02
Loney Fan leads Fanerman by 1:56
J Steve leads Keven C by 0:21
Josh leads Mr C by 1:47
Neeebs leads Betsy by 0:15

Eric Karros said...

I'm getting really bad at tracking these things.

Erin said...

Argh. That's what I get for spending my day taking care of a two-month old. Next time, the kid's on his own.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

I'll give you Palmerston. Pitt the Elder wasn't even the greatest Pitt. Mind you, if it weren't for that hapless tool Lord North mucking things up beforehand, Pitt the Younger might well have been Britain's greatest prime minister.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good thing you agree, Mr. C. If you didn't, I'd have punched you so hard that you would lay unconscious on the bar room tile.

Jason said...

I have only myself to blame for not being up by :05. No more slacking. Over? Nothing is over until we say it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain't over now. Cause when the goin' gets tough... The tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go! (runs out to warm up for the 2nd half, stupid and futile gesture reserved for future use)

J. Steve said...

Thanks for looking out for me, Dusty!

Neeebs said...

Oh boy, see what I started?

el montanero said...

well my bracket's already shot to hell. it's those damn mid-major conference upsets that get me every time. and i'm already into my bookie for 20 large.

Dusty Baker said...

@Erin

Time for boarding school for that kid so that you can concentrate on the important things like SoSG competitions.
