I was unable the come up with a picture of this weekend's winners so this is the closest one I could find online. I think you can guess which one looks most like Eddie. The pasty white one does resemble BMO slightly.
Congrats to Lifetime for having a great weekend going undefeated, oops wait I mean going 3-1 and only losing to the SWAT team. It was a very tough tourney with 4 good teams and Brookhaven. Just messing with you Brad. Brookhaven was missing two solid players all weekend and already had a slim roster but put out a strong effort this weekend. The Village scored an upset on Friday night which sent the SWAT team reeling and we never could get back on stride. OC also was hampered by a small roster but came dangerously close to winning the weekend as they lost a very close match to Lifetime on Friday night. I thank all the captains and players for great on and off the court behavior unlike the stories I heard from the 4.5 QT tourney. Trust me I wanted nothing more to win this weekend but I genuinely like the other teams and wish Lifetime well next weekend and beyond.
Speaking of beyond. DCC flights are out:
Friday @ 8p (Garland v. Springpark)
Saturday @ 11a (Springpark v. HP)
Saturday @ 3p (HP v. Garland)
This flight is very tough but knowing each team it will be hard for me to pick against the usual favorite of HP/Bob. This team is always good in doubles and now they have some singles players to back it up now so watch out. With that said Springpark and Garland are not overmatched they have solid play at singles and doubles but I just don't see the depth to match up 8 v 8. If I had to pick the 2nd team I would go with Garland just because I think the match up well with Springpark. Garland does have the best draw since they don't have to play a back to back and HP/Bob will not be able to rest singles players with McGowan and Woods playing in the morning match so there might be hope for Durdy Garland.
Friday @ 8p (TBar M v. Brookhaven)
Saturday @ 11a (Brookhaven v. Lifetime)
Saturday @ 3p (Lifetime v. TBar M)
I see this flight about the same way with Lifetime being the favorite to win but they do have the disadvantage of playing the doubleheader on Saturday. I just don't see Brookhaven being competitive in this flight. They don't match up well with either team. It should come down to Saturday at 3p with TBar M v. Lifetime. I originally had Lifetime in my mind cruising in this matchup but I am not as confident after some overnight thoughts. I think this match will be very close and if you forced me to pick it I have to pick Lifetime but by the narrowest of margins.
Good luck this weekend.
