Brinky Cup – Week 7

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 09:35

Tara put up a big number here in Week 7 of the NFL season, edging out Marcus and the light and dark Marios.  Maybe now that Jim Tressel is working in the NFL she’ll have more passion for the pro game and her Brinky Cup fortunes will be revived.  That’s assuming that you consider the Colts a professional football team, which I certainly don’t.  Ohio State isn’t going to play in the BCS Championship this year, true, but would the Buckeyes have given up 62 points to the Saints?  Remember, Colts fans, Jim Caldwell wasn’t good enough to keep his job coaching…Wake Forest.  If you’ve listened to Tony Dungy as a commentator lately, you realize quickly that he doesn’t know anything but platitudes.  That team never had a coach, it had Peyton Manning.  At the end of the year it may have Andrew Luck as well.  In the overall standings, it’s starting to look like different cup, same results.  Dark Mario had a relatively lackluster Week 7, finishing in third place, but Dark Lee had a lastlucker week and DM picked up three games.  If that wasn’t enough, regular Mario moved into a tie with me for second.  If Mario finishes one and two at the end of the season everyone else is getting a handicap in 2012.

Here are the complete Week 7 results:

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

    • And it would be a shame to lose the Brinky Cup because of a taunting penalty, wouldn’t it?

    • Gosh darn it, and here I thought I had this computer mess under control. My PC is dying and I had to use the Macbook for this week’s post. That machine that hates me as much as I hate it. Anyway, you know they’ll kick me out before they turn on you.

  4. I can’t believe I came in first this week! I would certainly hope the Buckeyes would not let another team score 62 points on them.
