Hockey pool, week 19

I don’t usually display a chart of each person’s weekly points tally, but I’ve decided to include it today because it looked so nice when Ricardipus did it I thought it might make Thomas feel better I KICKED ASS for once!

it's about bloody time I had a good week

It was a good week for us bottom dwellers, with Thomas also doing well. But how did this affect the standings?

Lavaland didn’t have the best of weeks, but second-placed Ricardipus did worse, and failed to make up any ground on her. Bob’s solid effort put him within two points of second place, while ScientistMother did one point better than Bob and made up some of the ground between her and the top three spots.

Chall had the worst week in the pool, and although Gerty-Z placed in the middle of the weekly points rankings, it wasn’t enough to prevent me from leapfrogging both of them into fifth place. Thomas continues to hold last place, but made up good ground on Gerty and Chall in joint sixth place.

The Canucks continue to do well despite defense-men dropping like flies to (IMO) cheap shots from opposing players, I’m beating Mr E Man and his best friend in the other pool I’m in, and all is well in hockey land.

Who wants to host next week?

  1. I was impressed with how well I did last week! Totally shocked considering that the stupid sportsnet page didn’t let me change from the week before :))) If no one else can do it next week, I can though I prefer the week after.

    Me too! I came back from a weekend away and looked at my points, and couldn`t believe it!

    Thanks for the hosting offer – let`s see if anyone else bites!

    Well, at least I did better this week, even if I did drop to 6th. I actually beat Lavaland!! That is probably a fluke, but it still makes me happy.

  5. Lavaland says:

    Wow, amazing week peeps!

  6. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    Chall, thanks! So you’ll do the February 21st update, and ScientistMother will do the 28th… sweet!

    Did you make sure that none of your players are injured?

    Thomas, us bottom-dwellers have to take whatever we can get in terms of fame and glory!

    Gerty, there are still plenty of games to go!

    Lavaland, yeah, the average points per member were definitely higher than usual! Especially in contrast to the last two crappy short weeks because of the stupid all-star game.

    Should be better this week. It better be, Bob’s knock knock knockin’ on the door…

      my sister-in-law says the cross-country skiing trails in BC are waaaaay steeper than the downhill ski slopes in Ontario and Manitoba!

    Hm, sorry about the double comment, not sure what happened there.
