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):

  • San Antonio (81-69) - Hanging tight all season, a great Week 25 brought them within 1 game of the division lead by Game 149.  They finished in 4th last season.
  • St. Paul (77-73) - Two seasons, two 2nd place finishes to Moscow.
  • Jersey Boardwalk (75-75) - A 16-game improvement over 2006 and a jump from 4th to 2nd.
  • Canberra (72-78) - Last year's Gore Cup Champion, when the team was under different ownership and known as WV.

Semifinals - Canberra vs San Antonio; Jersey Boardwalk vs St. Paul
