I’m tied for first for what will probably be the one and only time. You think I’m not going to post the score? Are you kidding?
Before getting to that, however, I have to announce a change to the prize package. The Man, being uptight, doesn’t allow citizens to ship alcoholic beverages across state lines; so much for the plan of rewarding the winner with sampler six-packs of regional brews. So, we all agreed to switch things up: the winner of the Center Holds It/Who Ate All the Cupcakes Playoff-Picks Duel will instead receive some culinary delight from the losers’ regional menus. So, again, damn The Man and let’s move on.
On another subject, I have yet to name my “team” for this Metaverse-Based Soccer Event. Seeing as we’re going regional, I thought I’d celebrate some of Portland, Oregon’s most widespread entrepreneurs: exotic dancers (due to our free speech laws, we have lots of strippers out this way). So I’ll roll with the Portland Pole Dancers FC.
With that, I give the Cupcakes/Center Playoff-Pick Duel Standings (all picks appear at various points in this post):
1. El Guero: 2 points
2. Portland Pole Dancers FC: 2 points
3. Breton: 1 point
4. A Tomar Por Culo Bicicleta FC (Ryan): 0 points
5. Longshoe: 0 points
6. E. Charles Blanco: 0 points
I’ll update the standings again on Sunday.
