The Assassins' Circle, Kill Thread 4

Man, that was a bloody day. Nine dead, topping the previous AC single-day record of eight in both Round 3 of AC '09 and Round 2 of AC '10. The latter of which was when Mr F famously pulled a, well, a Mr F. And the former of which was when I, ironically, had commented "I'm disappointed Danielle didn't show. The assassin industry needs as many women as it can get."

And here we are a year later, with Mean-B amoung the four remaning assassins. And while each has proven their ability and willingness to kill, you gotta give MB the edge with two kills.

You've come a long way, baby.

Now keep dancing til you drop, final four!:

Side conversation thread here and rules here.

Initiating comment:

Yeah baby, I'm on the hunt. Spank had better be on the run.

Nice gambit MB. But I think its mutual destruction in this round.

*double checks assassin strategy*

QuadSevens said...

Braaaaaiiiiiinnnssss!!

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Gawd am I hung-over....

Eric Karros said...

MB shows some cajones. Shields are few and far between in these rounds.

Eric Karros said...

I love the carefree, unburdened life of the dead, BTW

Josh S. said...

Tacos de cabeza por todos!

MR.F said...

I hope "pulling a Mr.F." shows up in the dictionary with a picture of Patricito next to it.

Jason said...

BOOOZZZE!

Neeebs said...

I forgot. What's a Mr. F again?

Eric Karros said...

Neeebs - click on the Round 2 AC '10 link and see Mr F's comments at 11:25 & 11:27am.

Neeebs said...

Ha. I heart Mr. F.

Being dead is so liberating!!!!

MR.F said...

Still no action?

Mr. Customer said...

Story of my life...

Steve Sax said...

The dead are getting more action in here

Mr. Customer said...

Here it comes...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Gambit.

Spank Horst said...

Bullet in your head

Keven C said...

go

Mr. Customer said...

(conflicting edit bait)

Spank Horst said...

Fuck!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

AHAHAHAHAHA

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

HAH

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Looks like the three of us continue this dance tomorrow.

Spank Horst said...

I got antsy

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Boom.

Mr. Customer said...

A fraction of a second difference and this would be over.

Keven C said...

Calibration!

Spank Horst said...

Same time,same place tomorrow homiez.

MeanieBreanie said...

It was die by honor or by suicide as tomorrow is a full day of planes, trains, and automobiles.

Move over boys and let me belly up to the bar.

Eric Karros said...

Mean B didn't even use her killshot.

Ok gents, same time same pace tomorrow. I guess MLASC has the edge now.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I always have the edge.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Punk.

Eric Karros said...

Every year I root for the female assassin. But alas killing is still a male-dominated industry.

Hopefully MB's and Karina's recent respectable runs will serve to inspire young girls who are in need of a strong hit-woman role model, as well as revitalize our nation's youth programs for both genders.

Spank Horst said...

@ MB

Make sure those are pillows you stick your hand in between.

Spank Horst said...

Dyslexia kicked in.

Steve Sax said...

those aren't two pillows!

rbnlaw said...

My money remains on Marla to take it all.

The window is now open and accepting bets.

Eric Karros said...

Current Vegas Line:

MLASC: 2 to 1
Spank: 5 to 2
Keven C: 3 to 1

Eric Karros said...

PS - That's not a diss, Keven C. It's just that MLASC has 2 kills and this is Spank's 2nd consecutive final four showing.

rbnlaw said...

Sans the Faberun rule, FB and I would be even money for a three-peat.

Keven C said...

Never tell me the odds.

Fernie V said...

I'll take 20 dollars to make you holla on spank. Eight the hard way at the craps table.
