Aruba, Diablo, Walla advance
In the most exciting final week of any Nibl regular season, the final three teams of the playoffs claimed their spots:
The bride's maid in this year's playoff is Cancun. Cancun won her final contest (casting West Chicago into the nadir of his first sub-.500 season btw), but lost a head-to-head-to-head first place tie to Diablo and Walla with a combined 1-3 record against these foes.
We've had one three way tie in Nibl seasons past... back in 1999, Cap City, Baghdad and Vegas were locked at 8-5 for second place in the East. The Tool won that three-way tangle.
Anyway, we have our 2003 Nibl playoff matchups:
stay tuned... yow, bill
