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):

  • Motley (90-60) - Last season's league champ.
  • Perth (81-69) - Gave NJ the closest race they ever had, but fell short at the end.
  • Oklahoma (75-75) - Stayed tight on Jundland's tail, but couldn't overtake them.  Bottom Feeder champ last season.
  • Medford (70-80) - Best finish ever, after two cellar-dwelling seasons.

Semifinals - Medford vs.Motley; Oklahoma vs Perth

 

Finals - Oklahoma vs Motley - Season Series: tied 3-3
