Alright everyone, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. You want the bad news first right? Well it’s that I’m covering your league. Actually, wait that’s the good news. That actual bad news is that for now, masks are required to play as part of our rental agreement with CH-CH. I am currently in discussions about how long that will be the case, but for now, please be sure to bring and wear masks to games.

With that bandaid ripped off, let’s get to a quick power rankings and week 1 lines/thoughts on the upcoming season tomorrow night! League Intro email is out right after this is posted

8 – Legendary Misfits – This is a pretty incomplete roster, so hard to judge how they’re going to fit in. Someone fill in the gaps for me!

7 – Bucket Boys – i see a couple potential scorers on the roster but also a lot of new names. This is like a default ranking. After week 2 or 3 I’ll provide a much more detailed, insightful, and as equally wrong updated rankings.

6 – Mighty Wombats – I love looking over rosters and just assuming everyone is going to be ready to jump back in to pre-covid levels of play. I know that’s not the case, i WATCHED the Spring season. But still I’m like, “hmmm, this guy is going to kill it” with absolutely nothing to back that up.

5 – Buckets Buckets – Dylan Smith lost Dave Zielinski to a semi-pro team out of Worcester I believe, otherwise this team was going to be ranked much higher. Hopefully his rookies know what they’re doing.

4 – NEW TEAM NEW – Sure Fri Lavey, MVP candidate, big scorer, blah blah blah. I’m more excited for a Bryan Walsh #WillBryScore campaign much like Action Jackson’s last season! No idea if this is actually Pat Kelley’s team name, but it has been historically and I don’t think he gave me anything else to work with, so we’re rolling with it.

3 – Klaviyo – Like Johnny Bananas and Wes Bergmann, Zak and Mazz have buried the hatchet and decided to team up, surprising the entire world. Also like Bananas and Wes, the partnership is going to end up in flames. FLAMES!

What, you guys don’t watch The Challenge? Almost every season is now streaming for a rewatch. It’s just as amazing as the first time around. I promise.

2 – Young Bulls – This team struggled in the regular season in the Spring, but when it mattered, they showed up. They made an impressive run to the finals and I think AJ will help carry that momentum into the summe session.

1 – Big Tuna – The only team they’ve lost to since the return to action is Space & Pace, and they were a last minute drop from the league, so it seems like this is Big Tuna’s division to win. We’ll see if they can! 

 

WEEK 1 PREVIEW

6 PM Buckets Buckets vs Klaviyo (-10.5) – This could very well be a trap game without any of us realizing it. How good is the BB roster?? Please note that the 6 PM game traditionally starts late week 1. I’ll be scrambling to get names and numbers for all you guys, handing out jerseys (that WILL be available on location in a very limited supply) and trying to figure out if the scoreboard on site actually works or not. Bear with me while I get the season started, ok? If you do i’ll try not to miss any of your stats! 

7 PM Big Tuna vs Young Bulls (+7.5) – Damn who scheduled this game to start the season!??! The good news is that this means there will be a rematch at some point in the season as well. For those that don’t know, whoever you play the first two weeks of the season are the teams you’ll see again to wrap up the season. It’s that scheduling quirk that allowed Big Tuna to lose to the same team THREE TIMES in the Spring! Ah memories

8 PM Mighty Wombats vs Bucket Boys (?) – I’ve got nothing insightful to say about this team, so here are some tips to get the most out of your cac experience. 
1 – Heckle. It doesn’t matter if it’s your opponents, your teammates or even me (Lisella’s Bow & Arrow anyone?). Guys that can be heard are guys that can be talked about. it’s that simple.
2 – Don’t Be A Dick. You’d think it’s simple enough, but you’d be surprised
3 – Obsess Over Your Stats. Duh

9 PM NEW TEAM NEW vs Legendary Misfits (+11.5) – Oh man the nightcap week 1? Let’s hope I have the energy to tweet through this

Big disrespect for a NEW TEAM NEW team that has been practicing all offseason, with key members of the historic Spin ‘Em team coming back from retirement for various reasons (age/business school/diabetes). A great writeup nonetheless. Plus side is refs can’t tell who is yelling at them if we’re all wearing masks.

First bucket of the game odds have been set, great odds getting me at 50:1. #ClutchGene

In all seriousness though, the most believable part of this summary is that Billy Jackson did not score for a full season!

Zak and Mazz have decided to bury the hatchet and team up? They’ve been playing together for years under my captaincy. Did you forget who the reigning uni champs are?

3x Chise B Champ | Vandelay Industries | S16, F16, F17

2x SDL Champ | Guns & Rosies | Hold My Pocket
