Hey Coach, Put me in!
Young Bill Krieger (Mar 31, 2003)
The following guys must be played in the final week of the Nibl season:
If you don't play your guys, then I'll contact your opponent an he/she will select your replacement lineup. If neither party cares, then I'll flip a coin.

West is complicated
OK, here's the standings:
Well, I've looked at it a bit... and a bit more. The only thing I can figure out is that if Cancun beats Diablo this week, then she's in the playoffs. The Cleavage own tiebreakers over Walla, Nantucket and, with a win, Diablo.
After that, your guess is as good as mine. OK, let's see... if West Chicago wins both his remaining games... hold on a second... oh, fuck it. I can't figure it out. Just remember this... the first tiebreaker if two teams are tied is head-to-head record and then head-to-head scoring. If more than two teams are tied, then its best record in all the games involving those teams and then most points in those games. Get your calculator out!
Skiing in Steamboat Colorado... 4 bill-stars!
Most bizarre moment of the trip... I'm standing at the pickup area outside of O'Hare, when a cop notices an unattended bag next to the curb. It was a small piece of kid's luggage. The cop got on her radio, and in five minutes another cop showed up. It was surreal watching the two of them look it over without touching the thing.
Finally, the supervisor cop reaches down and pushes the handle down on the bag. I'm no nut case or hyper-sensitive to this terrorist crap, but man she's pushing this handle down and all I'm thinking is explosives plunger.
We live in bizarre times.
East is simple
Vegas wins the East and will be the top-ranked team in the playoffs. Duh.
Mark it in your calendar:
Cap City at Aruba
The winner goes to the playoffs... the loser gets a ticket to palooka-ville and shit for the next 6 months or so.
Back to Vegas for a second:
2003 Pao Gasol Memorial Nibl F-Up Award
This year's winner... drum roll...
Tim Hardaway, now an Indiana Pacer (and taking some of my valuable Tinsley nibls, I might add), is not on the master player list and therefore is not available to any Nibl team in the playoffs.
Last but definitely not least... best wishes to our military men and women in Iraq. It's amazing to see the bravery and quality of people that we have in our armed forces. Here's to an American victory and a safe return home for our guys!
nibl... yow, bill
PS - Geez, it sure seems like the Cub will suck this year. For my money, a .500 season is a pipe dream. They may have one of the worst starting 8 in the NL. I have but one hope for the season (shit, I hope I'm not jinxing him)... my only hope for the season is a 50+ homer season out of Sammy Sosa. Lord help me.
