Last Week To Decide Final Playoff Spots
Apr 15, 2002... Young Bill Krieger
We started this whole dealie 24 long weeks ago... this
is it. Funny though, there's still some important business to take care
In the next to last week of the season, Vegas shocked
Aruba with a crushing 7 nibl victory. The Thong loss propelled Manila
into second place and primed for a playoff berth.
After the game, we caught up with Aruba owner Bill
Cub reporter: Mr. Krieger, what are your
feelings on your loss to Vegas this week?
Aruba Bill: Fuck.
Cub Reporter: Ok... um, your team's last
three conference losses were by 1 nibl, 7 nibls and 7 nibls... what
Aruba Bill: (intense stare)
The tune was much different in Manila as the DogEaters
spanked the once-mighty Tools.
Cub reporter: Denise, this is quite a surge
your guys are making for the playoff run... how does it feel?
DogEater Denise: It's been quite an easy
season for the DogEaters, actually. There's very little real
competition in the NIBL.
Cub Reporter: Well, Aruba has tallied quite a
lofty scoring average this year, hasn't he?
DogEater Denise: (laughing) Aruba... we all
knew that team was a joke. His name isn't "FrontRunner Bill"
Cub Reporter: I see. You still need a victory
over Napa Valley in this last week to clinch your playoff spot.
DogEater Denise: You're kidding right! I have
already counted that victory and playoff tickets are on sale
throughout the Philippines. Napa Valley is barely a team in my mind,
and I expect we'll win by a hundred or more nibls. I couldn't possibly
take this team more lightly. I guarantee an easy victory this week...
playoffs, here I come!
Well, on the other side of the fence, the Western
Conference treaded water for a week as both West Chicago and Rip City
each won easily.
"See you soon kids"
- engraved message on Krusty the
Week 25 Finale
The big games this week are:
- Napa Valley at Manila - the DogEaters need a win
over Napa to clinch second place in the East and a playoff spot.
- DuPage at Aruba - the Thongs need a win over the
Dicks to stay in contention for the final spot in the East... a loss
and their history.
- Rip City at Cancun - with a victory over the
Cleavage, the Rippers will capture the second playoff spot in the
- Diablo at West Chicago - West Chicago needs to beat
Diablo, and a Rip City stumble, to make the playoffs.
- Cap City at Vegas - these two 12-12 teams face
off... one will emerge a 13-12 winner, the other a 12-13 LOSER! He
Good luck to all... well, to some...
Next week... the most anticipated event in all fantasy
