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 200x Entrants (in order of seeding):

  • Alphaville (87-63) - Closest competition Carlisle ever had - losing out by only 3 games.  Last year's Gore champ.
  • NJ (81-69) - 2nd straight year in the Gore Cup.
  • London (79-71) - Defending league champ.  Out of the main playoff round for the first time ever.
  • Monrovia (78-72) - Most losses in franchise history last season - rebounded to a 2nd place finsih.

Semifinals - Monrovia vs.Alphaville; London vs NJ

 

Finals - London vs Alphaville - Both teams won 3 games in the season series.

2007 Gore Cup Winner - London in 6 Games
