PLL mid season update

Game Time Decision
Latest posts by Game Time Decision (see all)

Back at ya with yet another lacrosse post.  Today we’re looking at the PLL as we’re about half way through the group play of the season.  So far the Chrome and the Archers are undefeated, while the Chaos, Redwoods and Waterdogs have yet to get a victory.  Each team will play 4 games in the group play part of the season, with the highest ranked team getting a first round bye.  Everyone else has an extra game to try to make it to the semi-finals.  So getting hot at the end of the season is much more important than a higher season ranking as every one makes it to the playoffs.  Or put another way, 14 games to figure out whogets a first round bye.

One programming thing to note is that there is a game tonight as the Redwoods vs Chaos game was postponed due to the weather.  It’s on NBCSN at 11 PM (Eastern)

There have been some very pretty plays

Note that this is what happens when someone the size of a LB or TE goes up against a corner in lacrosse.  Myles is a big man.

 

And some really bad plays

The guy doing the cross checking here, got penalised in game, and has since been suspended a game without pay by the league.

If you’re interested in watching here’s the schedule:

All games on NBC, NBCSN or NBC Gold.  For those outside of the US, there is an international pass for these games, for $19.99(US) that gets you access to all the games, as well ask the ability to watch previous games and some behind the scenes content.

For those needing to bet or feeling lucky, all games can be bet on via Draft Kings.

And now the early results of the Sterling Bracket pool.  Yes, I should never be allowed to name things.

DonT getting some good karma for buying a Beans shirt, and litre may not have any gently used items to add to the mantel.

I’ve never watched Lacrosse. Do players frequently get head injuries or high speed nutshots? I guess the presence of helmets answers the first part of my question. I reckon they use cups like MLB catchers? Still, a direct shot would probably get your attention.

I don’t want to alarm anyone but I got a lap dance from Blaze Riorden a week ago Tuesday. He told me, ‘Listen honey, a 43% save percentage isn’t gonna pay the bills very much longer and my dad just cut off my boat shoes allowance!’.

/I gave him a tenner and told him there’s plenty of room for improvement

You can afford all that on your big Editor salary, plus the money from your illegal dairy.

You think you have problems; I just opened a bottle of hot sauce the is less hot than the little thermometer on the side indicates. Thoughts and prayers, please.

Sounds like someone needs a bottle of Dave’s Insanity Sauce to help boost the weak ones.

I’d like to keep my asshole, thanks.

To be fair, it could have been a batch meant for the Midwest.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

No, that can’t be right, it’s still spicy, just not hot.

If You Give A Moose An Inadequate Hot Sauce was a book I read to my kids before bedtime. As I read, I silently prayed that they’d fall asleep before the last ‘HellRain’ chapter. God, the nightmares I would have if I had to finish the book! It was filled with the wailing of little children that looked a lot like my own. My nightmares stopped after I bought earplugs though-so it’s kinda a happy ending if you think about it.

A book about inflamed moose assholes. Amazon books.

This story about the Marlins players going “out on the town” in Atlanta is kind of unfortunate. It’s just going to encourage people to blame this farce on specific players being stupid rather than a flaw in the policy. (Hint: if your policy depends on close to a thousand young men NOT being stupid, it is likely a bad policy.)

King Hippo

Regardless of facts, I’mma blame Jee-tuh. Just because he’s such a fuckweasel.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

He’s obviously part of the Illuminati and is destroying lives and the future of ‘Merica.

That’s just science. The demon sex doctor Trump recommended says so.
