For the first time this season, I WENT 7-0 BABY, I AM ON FIRE!!!!!!!! With this week in the bag, I now notch a record of 29-6 in 6 weeks! I am better than some of you at all of this, or with my predictions, it might be like shooting fish in a barrel.
The only game of the week was Lauren vs. Katie. And I was right in picking this one. I correctly picked Lauren besting Katie, but this match did not let us down whatsoever. The final margin was 68 points, and Lauren had big contributions from Iraq, and Spain, but had low numbers from Nigeria (28) and Romania (7).....if she can pick up a 3rd bench country who can score over 50, she might be nearly unstoppable in her division. Lauren is now 2-5 in the First Worlds, but has squeaked her way into the top-5 points for the week overall by putting up 274 points. I think she'll pick up again in week 8 vs The Axis of Evil (or "if I beat Lucas it doesn't Matter) to maybe squeak her closer into a playoff spot as we inch into the last 6 reasons of the regular season.
The other games of the week were a blanket labeling of the LDC division, where literally nothing changed in the division standings, 1st through 7th didn't change, and every member of the LDC's stays ranged 2nd-9th in the league (with T-Money$$$ Givens not allowing the league to be a consistently dominant bloc.
The weekly awards are:
Rockstar of the week:
Baby ducks for remaining the only undefeated team in the league and increasing his overall lead by 400 points over the MILF's in the LDC's.
Blowout of the week:
The Macalester MILF's over Adrienne Cox (is her stock waning) by 133 points.
Squeak-er of the Week-er
Teghan picks this one up with her 8 point victory over the American Axis of Evil (who left his name the same from last week vs. Lucas aka "GDI".) But again, these two teams combined (226) were outscored by 10 teams in the league.
Bonehead move of the week
Nobody made any moves this week........so, nobody wins this award
The Lucas Ryan (GDI) Memorial Sad Trombone Award:
Lucas for being defeated, and Teghan and Jack for being out-scored by 2/3 of the week.
Week 8 predictions
Tsunami over the TOMB
Baby Ducks over Katie
Teghan over GDI
Lauren over the Axis of Evil
Aaron's Black Crackers over Adrienne
Macalester MILF's over Azeem
Hellena over PO Life (or Team America)
and T-Money$$$ will finally win again because of his bye.
Last week I alluded to the following plot twist, and it gets worse because you all decided to get cute and move my desk and stuff around.....and it took too long for you all to fix it. Week 8 introduces Bounty week. Winning teams are only fractionally safe. For this week, your weekly scoring matters. Teams who are high-scorers may poach one country, next Monday, from a team they score better than (in order from top to bottom). Once a team has a country stolen, they are safe. Although it is spring break, I will contact each team via text/twitter/edmodo/email. If you do not respond within 30 minutes of me contacting you, you lose out on your shot to steal a country from someone. When I contact you, you must also choose a country to drop. For teams who lose a country, you must pick them up off of the waiver-wire/free agency. If you pick something up/trade out of order, I will take 2 countries away from you.....
What will happen during week 8? How will the twist impact things for week 9? Who knows.......maybe your mantra should be #IBELIEVE
