Shakopee 306, Seattle 248
Shit, Shakopee even broke the 300 nibl barrier!
The Shakopee Shysters, now sporting a 1-10 record, will thankfully
avoid breaking one of the most dubious records in Nibl history. The 1999
Bolingbrook BigHops went a painful 0-13 during that
lockout-shortened season to become the only Nibl team to not win a
single game during the season. That Bolingbrook season was so
devastating that the team shuttered their doors for a couple of years,
only to emerge as the perennial powerhouse Plainfield PlayMakers.
Shakopee owner Steve Tucker celebrated the victory:
|I won I won I won I won
Well, only once. But I won. Woohoo!
I'm not the worst. Statistically but
not technically the worst.
Thank you you SeaWhores and bring on

Congrats to Steve, eh.
A couple of other snippets:
- Vegas scored a season-high 387
nibls, pummeling Nantucket last week. Tommy "vermin"
Dieboldt wasn't satisfied, "Why not 400!" Yikes. Vegas is
enjoying the dominance of T-Mac, Marbury and Ray Allen. Hubie Brown
figured out that Lorenzen Wright wasn't selling Mai-tai's at the end
of the bench in Memphis, and viola... Wright's now snagging 25+
nibls a night at center for the Vermin.
- Vegas and Shakopee were the only
Eastern Conference teams to win last week... a 2-6 spanking by the
West. Has the Earth stopped rotating and nobody told me?
- This week's feature game
highlights the two first-place teams: Walla Walla (9-2) at Vegas
(9-2). Vegas leads the league in points and has a ton of momentum...
so Walla beware!
Later this week... the Nibl
All-Star team. Yow!
nibl... yow, bill
