Dear Mr. Krieger,
Well I am happy to see a season completed --- I am also happy to note that M. Jesse Jackson two months ago predicted Walla Walla would win the NIBL championship. Recall:
"My predictions: Vegas loses to ARUBA, Walla Walla over Cancun
Walla Walla over Aruba...."
Sorry about the sixth failure in a row -- cant win em all -- or, in your case, any of them....there's next year, though...
A little off...but I think that M. Jesse has now earned the title of "M. JESSE THE GREEK: THE NIBL SWAMI"
Let me know -- I might send a representative to the draft from the West Coast to field the Los Angeles GNABOs next year.
live free or die,
Nibl Champions: Walla Walla BoardBreakers
Young Bill Krieger (May12, 2003)
The Bailey Boys last visited the Nibl finals in our inaugural year. Walla lost in a 3 game thriller to Manila, largely on the back of DogEater Detlef Shrempf's 44 nibl performance.
That was then.
Now, in year 6, Walla swept to their first title in a 2-0 sweep over regular season bullies Vegas Vermin. Vegas had beaten no only Walla during the regular season, but every Western Conference opponent they faced. The late first round losses of T-Mac and Bonzi changed that calculus. Here's the nibl production for the Nibl 2003 Finals:
Walla's Dallas connection of Dirk and Nick matched the nibl output of the entire depleted Vegas squad at 150 nibls for the series. On draft day, I heard (and may even have uttered) more than a couple "tee-hees" when Walla selected Dirk Nowitzki with the 4th pick... ahead of the likes of Kobe, T-Mac, C-Web, AI...
It needn't be said... Walla had the last laugh on that one.
That's a wrap.
nibl... yow, bill
