Well, I've been regretting this update for a couple weeks now...but here it goes. With 2 weeks left in the season, Broken English going to be on a bye week the final week, and no position round we played them. It didn't take a math whiz to figure out a few different scenerios that could happen...
1. We go 3-3 and have to go 5-1 in the final week
2. We go 4-2 and have to go 3-3 in the final week
3. We go 5-1 and have to win 1 round in the last week
4. We go 6-0 and WIN the league no matter what
5. We win 2 rounds or less and get 2nd.
Well...we went 2-4 and lost the league, then went 5-1 in the final week where none of us cared too much. We definitely had our chances, even after a couple bad rolls where Ryan scratched in the sidepocket it came down to the last round. It was 2-2 and tied up going into the last round, so essentially whoever wins the last round will go 4-2 and win the league (assuming we win 3 rounds the last week).
Here is an example of one of the bad scratches I referenced...cost us a 10-0 chance, or a 13-point swing
It has been a while, but I have to give credit to Risky's Broken English for taking us down in the last round. After I won 10-2, it came down to our last two players and we were 6 up...meaning they had to win both games to "win the league". Well...it didn't turn out for us, and it could have just as easily been on me if I had been later in the round.
We played Risky's Broken English 3 times and went 2-4, 5-1 (position round) and 2-4 again...
9-9 even steven.
Cappy's 8BallRun.com and the other top teams from our league are in the "B Bracket" at the city tournament and we would love a chance to settle the score. We played in the "A Bracket" last season and won 5 matches including the league champion in a division up from us. I believe the other 3 teams that were moved up to A went 2-and-out at city last year. We certainly have the capability to win this division and will likely run into our Broken English again.
It is funny, last season we finished 4th in the league...and are a big reason the Broken English finished 3rd since we beat them 5-1 or 6-0 in all 3 meetings.
Usually when a team wins 80% of the rounds in a league, they are a clear winner...but it was fun to again have a team on our heels the whole way.
