Well......6-1, because of Teghan's 1 point loss to Lucas......maybe if she didn't skip class on Wednesday, I would have given her a point to tie.....but she did, and I didn't.......so now I am 35-7.
I apparently didn't pick a game of the week last week, but we had several interesting match-ups.....
First one: GDI vs Teghan.
Lucas finally picks up his first win, by one point over Teghan. While Teghan had 2 countries pick up over 60 points a piece, Niger's 3 points (18-15 goldstein), it allowed Lucas to squeak through with some decent numbers from Switzerland and good enough numbers from Portugal and Saudi Arabia, finally allowed him to get the job done. This is the closest squeak-er of the week-er yet!
Second one: Tsunami vs the TOMB
Thomas does it again, squeaks a win out over Alex by 4 points. Which moves Thomas up to 2nd in the division and 7th overall!
Rockstar of the Week:
Baby ducks for their 8th win of the season, and Lauren for her beast mode dominance of Jack!
Blowout of the Week:
Lauren's 200 point victory over the Axis of Evil
Squeak-er of the Week-er:
Lucas' 1 point win over Teghan
Bonehead Move of the Week:
Teghan for skipping class, and Jack for having 2 awful countries with no growth potential whatsoever
The Sad Trombone Award:
To Teghan.....for being the first team to lose to the GDI......
Here is tomorrow's country stealing order:
5. Baby Ducks
9. PO Life
15. Jack (may pick up the first waiver country).
Remember, you have 30 minutes from my first contact with you to tell me what you want to steal, and what you are dropping. Once someone loses a country, they cannot lose a second.
I also told you in class there is a week 9 twist! This one is for the losers (with some good perks, and some bad ones....so I guess they are not perks)......
Each loser will have the opportunity to choose a sealed envelope with a note either giving them a power, or opportunity, or something that might impair them for a week of their choosing. The loser with the closest margin of loss will choose first, then we will go in the order of losses to the blowout of the week receiving whatever is left. Losers may share what their punishment/reward is, or they may keep it secret. (This is cherry-picked from my love of Big Brother competitions.....although I don't have a unitard to make someone wear....). The winner of the Blow-out of the week will also receive a special envelope as well. We will see how this twist impacts the rest of the game for everyone! You know as they say on big brother "Expect the Unexpected."
Week 9 Picks:
Lauren over the TOMB
Ducks over Teghan
Katie over GDI
Tsunami over Axis of Evil
Hellena over ABC
PO Life over Tavarous
Azeem over Adrienne
Match-ups of the week.......are all in flux to see how this week's twist impacts everyone. We will see how the Mac-Milfs, ABCs, Azeem, or the Ducks are impacted by finishing not on top. If Helena picks correctly, she could remain the lone juggernaut.
I am cold and wet in Seattle, and very tired. This week's sign off is lame, but appropriate given tomorrow's twist:
