Sorry old pal, I was too late.



Nice use of the greco-roman wrestling though.

A first round bye? As in a goodbye?

Maybe I'm just slow (quite likely the case), but I'm still having trouble understanding what Cujo meant. Why would the top 2 teams "get a first round bye"? Doesn't that mean that they'll not make the playoffs? I would have thought, if anything, the top two teams would make them. Can someone please explain exactly what is meant here?

a first round bye means the top 2 teams dont have to play in the first round of the playoffs, they get a free pass into the second round

Thanks, Chiz. That's what I thought it might have meant at first, but the word "bye" through me off. I always thought it was "buy", but since I've never actually written the word in this context (or even read it, as far as I remember), I guess I just didn't know it was "bye" - which, to me, is like "goodbye", and not a "buy in" to the next round.

Bye for now.

It'll be too soon before I hear a joke like that again.

If only I could lower your standing...



Nope, looks like I'll have to do it the old-fashioned way...

It will go down to the wire, Cuj. Should be quite the finish.

PS. I apologize for the joke. I couldn't resist. Do I get a bye?

Yes, it will be quite the finish (maybe not down to the wire)...

it's chizip's and my spot to lose though... so we better not tank.

just want to say that even though my fantasy team the FrozenPeaches suck big time, I am enjoying my lead at this moment over Griffs! *points at Griffs and laughs! *

It's not just a lead... you actually *won*! There are no more games this week due to the all-star game.
