Greetings from Old Chicago in Lakewood.

With the start of football this week, it’s only natural to expect to see a fantastic finish or two when the a couple of evenly based teams battle it out on the Gridiron. If you saw TCU’s Hail Mary pass or Boise State pull out a victory over Virginia Tech, you know what I’m talking about.

Well football fans, You ain’t seen nuthin until you saw what happened Tuesday night.

The game started off normal enough with a one point victory by I Was Dead at The Time over Golden Showers. OC and Stumpy tied for third place.

Next we had Golden Showers eek out another one point win over IWDATTStumpy tied with newcomers Birds for third.

In the third round all Hell broke loose. As I have written earlier, we do something a little different for one question in the third round. I don’t want to get into it now, you will need to come play a round to find out. But, the third round almost always causes grief for at least one team that thought they were doing great for the first two rounds. Golden Showers and IWDATT took our version of the Golden Sombrero, (It’s a baseball term. get your mind out of the gutter) This allowed an epic battle for the round between Blackout and Birds.

The round ended with a tie between the aforementioned teams. We went to the tie breaker. Blackout won the tie breaker, using some excellent movie knowledge.

One problem. Now we had a tie for the overall win. What does one do?

I have been known to use non-traditional tie breakers to determine a round winner. My favorite is the classic, Rock Paper Scissors. A true american game.

Oh, did I n that the Birds were quite boisterous from the second round on? They were seated upstairs and every time they gave me a correct answer, you could hear their ‘Cheers.’  Definitely a rookie move. I’m more of a Barry Sanders, been there/done that/give the ball to the Ref and go back to your sideline type of guy.

When I announced a tie between the two teams, the entire  Birds team flocked ( Sorry) downstairs to try to psyche out the Blackout member that was lining up to play R/P/S. Well, the rest of team Blackout would have none of that and they came over to cheer on their teammate. It looked like the Bloods vs Crips. (Ok, maybe more like the Jets and the Sharks from West Side Story)

After reminding the Birds player how to actually play RPS, we had game one go to the Birds (Sorry again).  Game two went to Blackout. After 3 draws, Blackout cut the paper and won.

You might have thought Mr. Tebow had scored a

touchdown over at Colfax and Federal.

Until next week.

Brent
