Brinky Cup – Week 5

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 13:17

Week 5 of the NFL season was a winning week in the Tri-State Area, as…wait, didn’t the Jets and the Giants both lose?  And didn’t the Eagles bite it, too, for those in the NY-NJ-CT region reaching slightly westward for their team affiliation?  All true, but Jodi Ann and Marcus ran away with the top two spots in the Brinky Cup, posting records of 11-2 and 10-3, respectively.  Despite picking most games the same, Mario the Younger finished in last for the week while his evil twin was just one back of Marcus for second.  On the other hand, Dark Lee picked all but two games differently from regular Lee but their respective records, 8-5 and 7-6, were nearly identical. What does it mean?  Nothing, probably.  In the overall standings, the Dark Lords of the Picks continue their reign atop the standings, now four games clear of the field, with Dark Mario picking up a game to square things up in the evil race.  Jodi Ann displays an evil streak of her own in moving from last place after the Week 1 debacle into a tie for second (with Charlotte, Lisa, and Mario the Elder) five weeks in.  Perhaps making picks at the last minute isn’t as risky a strategy as I thought.  We’ll see what happens if Katie ‘forgets’ to remind the upstarts to get their selections in on time this Sunday.

Here are the complete Week 5 results:

  • 11-2 (1):  Jodi Ann
  • 10-3 (1):  Marcus
  • 9-4 (3):  Brinkley, Dark Mario, Reagan
  • 8-5 (3):   Charlotte, Dark Lee, Jenny
  • 7-6 (2):  Justin, Lee
  • 6-7 (4):  Katie, Lisa, Mario the Elder, Tara
  • 5-8 (2):  Mario the Younger, Ruby

    • At some point, you have to step aside and pass that torch to the next generation. If you don’t, it looks like Reagan is prepared to rip it away from you.
