Second-Place Showdown

In honor of the 43rd President of the United States (heh, heh, heh), The Al Gore Cup is a forum for teams that finished second and most likely feel that they're more deserving than all of the other first-place teams to be in the championship bracket.

 

Teams are seeded 1-4 based on regular season records and play a best-of-seven semifinal round followed by another seven game series to crown the winner.

 

The winner receives a bonus of 1 million Benchwarmer Bucks.  The runner-up gets 500,000.

 

The 2007 Entrants (in order of seeding):

  • Norwalk (79-71) - Finishing 2nd to Boar's Nest brings no shame.
  • D-Town (76-74) - Fought it out with Leucadia most of the season.  Won this tournament last season.
  • San Francisco (76-74) - Division powerhouse in the early years, watched Oaxaca win for 3rd straight.
  • Nordeast (75-75) - Couldn't capitalize on Milford's sweep of Seattle - lost division by a single game.

Semifinals - Nordeast vs. Norwalk; San Francisco vs. D-Town.

 

Finals - San Francisco vs Norwalk - Norwalk won the season seires 4-2
