Brinky Cup – Week 15

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 09:02

For the last three weeks of the season, I’m going to summarize each of the key races separately.

Brinky Cup

Cup-leader Tara posted an unspectacular 9-7 record in Week 15, opening the door for Mario to cut further into her three-game lead…whereupon he missed the door completely and ran into a 7-9 wall.  Now five game back, Mario needs a Christmas miracle to have any hope of defending his 2011 Brinky Cup championship.

Bizarro Brinky Cup

Charlotte continued her epic bizarro choke-job, following a dangerous 7-9 week with a potentially-disastrous 10-6.  Almost unbelievably, Ruby failed to take advantage of Charlotte’s inexcusably solid performance.  Matching 10-6 records allowed Charlotte to preserve her two-game lead over Ruby and Mario the Elder.  But wait…who’s that creeping down behind?  It’s Katie!  After a 6-10 Week 15, she’s suddenly within three games of the Bizarro lead.  How is this happening?  In no small part, it’s because of Michael Vick.  Katie hates Michael Vick, and so she refuses to pick the 12-2 Falcons.  Are we talking about the same Michael Vick who last played for the Falcons in 2006?  Yes.  That means Katie also refuses to pick the 4-10 Eagles, Vick’s current team, right?  Nope.  Katie always picks the Eagles.  That means she likes the reformed, post-prison Vick, right?  Nope.  She just refuses to accept the facts–Michael Vick plays for the Eagles, not the Falcons.  If this accounting thing doesn’t work out, there’s a place for her at Fox News.

Brinky Bowl Playoffs

Last week, Reagan, Jenny, Nicole M. and Jodi Ann were all within one game of the playoffs, with the top 5 playoff spots virtually locked in.  Now the picture is slightly clearer.  Reagan (10-6) seized sole possession of the final spot from her sister (9-7); Nicole M. is still in the hunt, but her 8-8 Week 15 record pushed her deficit from one game to three; Jodi Ann pooped the bed with a 5-11 week and now sits alongside Marcus, six games out of the playoffs.

Tara 9-7

Lee 19 6-10
Nicole E. 20 7-9
Mario T.Y. 21 9-7

Ruby 35 10-6
Charlotte 37 10-6


  1. You just don’t understand my logic.

    • There’s no such thing as proprietary logic; however, your insanity is definitely all your own. Keep going, though–the Bizarro Brinky Cup is well within reach. I forgot to mention how you don’t like the Broncos because of Tebow, but you pick the Jets as often as you pick the Eagles.

  2. I’m curious, did most people pick the entire season before the season started like I did?

    • Yes; the only week-to-week pickers are Dark Mario and the Pfafftown Five.
