Brinky Cup – Week 13

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 06:58

I have an idea.  At this point in the season, the Brinky Cup race has narrowed to the point that only four competitors have a shot at the regular-season title: Dark Mario in the lead, then Marcus, Dark Me, and Lisa, 3, 4, and 6 games back, respectively.  After Lisa, the next-closest is Brinkley, a whopping 13 games behind.  So my idea, to keep everyone focused, is to add playoffs to the mix (cue Jim Mora, unless the endless Miller Lite commercials have made you sick of him).  The regular season champion will still win the Brinky Cup, but the top six finishers will also go on to pick the playoff games for a chance to win the Brinky Bowl.  Only one playoff entry per person, Mario.  The top four Brinky Bowl spots are locked up, but five people (excluding Mario’s and my second entries) are within three games of each other for the final two playoff spots.

Week 13 of the regular season heralds the return of Dark Me to contention after several weeks sliding steadily further behind Mario and Marcus.  Now I’m within 4 games and Lisa is within 6, making the final month of the season more than just a two-horse race.  I could have added another game if I had been willing to pick the Denver Tebows, because I had a bad feeling they would win, and I was right.  Alas, I am solidly against our modern-day Mark Brunell, which is probably the fault of everyone else in the world and not Mark-Tim himself, but it is what it is.  In the world of the Bizarro Brinky Cup, Ruby continues her bravura performance, un-winning another week and falling ahead by seven games.  Here are the complete Week 13 results:

  • 13-3 (1):  Dark Lee
  • 12-4 (2):  Katie, Lisa
  • 11-5 (1):  Jodi Ann
  • 10-6 (3):  Brinkley, Dark Mario, Marcus
  • 9-7 (3):  Jenny, Mario the Younger, Reagan
  • 8-8 (4):  Charlotte, Justin, Lee, Tara
  • 7-9 (1):  Mario the Elder
  • 6-10 (1):  Ruby

  1. I don’t think I can make the top 6, but I’m happy that I had a good week!
