As It Should Be
Bill Krieger... May 21, 1999
Well, the NIBL title will come down to one, last game... as it should be. That is the kind of season it has been. The quickie marts of West Chicago poured many a celebratory squishie as West Chicago rocked Aruba in game two 99-78.
Game two seemed like it was the polar opposite of game one. The Thong took game one 98-87. The WifeBeaters rallied to take game two 99-78. Go:
Both these teams are here because they have already survived a game 3 in the conference championship. The Beater's counted on Alan Iverson to vault them into the finals; he grabbed 55 nibl to slap upstart Elk Grove. The Thong pulled Scottie Pippen out of a hat for 56 nibls to beat Cap City, but Scottie's obviously not around any more.

PS - I want to thank all of you who sent me e-cards an e-letters regarding those busters, the Utah Jazz... I'd like to respond briefly to one letter, if I might. To Little Timmy in Bangor, Maine... no, Timmy, I don't think Utah can fall into the Pacific Ocean because it doesn't border the ocean. However, Utah may be able to sink into the Salt Lake? I'll look into it some more.
PPS - Go Blazer!
