Brinky Cup – Week 6

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 12:57

On a certain level, I was pulling for Jodi Ann to win the picks again this week (a much lower level than the level on which I was pulling for myself or Dark myself to win).  Alas, Reagan put herself solidly between Jodi Ann and a Week 6 victory.  So did Lisa and Jenny, for that matter.  And Katie, and Tara, and all three Marios, and Dark Lee, and even Marcus (what a jerk).  But Charlotte, Brinky, Justin and Ruby all did the considerate thing and stunk it up respectfully.  In the overall standings, Reagan’s big week rockets her to within…9 games.  The 10-win weeks posted by Lisa and Mario the Elder were more productive, moving both of them to within 3 games of the lead, now held solely by Dark Mario.  Katie, Ruby, and Justin occupy the bottom three rungs on the Brinky Cup ladder.  Justin’s position seems even more tenuous, given that he was only eligible for half a Cup to begin with.  But perhaps my perspective is off in this case.  Half a championship is certainly an undesirable outcome, but half an abysmal failure may in fact be preferable to an entire abysmal failure.

Here are the complete Week 6 results:

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

We are now about 1/3 of the way through the season, and I want to remind all the preseason pickers that they can submit changes to their picks for any given week so long as they do so before that week’s games get underway.  Conversely, any of the current week-to-week pickers can submit picks for the remainder of the season at any point they get tired of being harassed for picks on Sunday.  This doesn’t apply to me or to Mario the Younger as both of us locked in preseason picks in addition to going week-to-week, darkly.  As it happens, we are about evenly split between week-to-week and preseason pickers.

  • Week-to-week pickers (7): Dark Lee, Dark Mario, Jenny, Brinkley, Reagan, Jodi Ann, Marcus
  • Preseason pickers (8): Lee, Mario the Younger, Mario the Elder, Ruby, Tara, Katie, Charlotte, Justin/Nicole

  1. I just keep going lower but fortunately I don’t have too much further to drop! One less thing I need to worry about!

  2. Being in the middle’s okay with me this week — I like the cushion of lows and highs.
