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):

  • Wayne (99-51) - Tough to win 99 games and finish in 2nd place - they only need to ask Dawns about that (100-game winners but no crown in 2006).
  • Dawns (80-70) - 20 fewer wins than last year, but still good enough for 2nd place.
  • Asia (76-74) - Our first league champ in 2005, Bottom Feeder champ last year.  Now they take a run at the Gore Cup.
  • D.C. (66-84) - 18 games below .500, but still comes in 2nd in the Perry.  First time they're not a last-place team.

Semifinals - D.C. vs.Wayne; Asia vs Dawns

 

Finals - Asia vs Wayne - The season series ended in a 6-6 tie.
