League Cancelled Tonight!
Dec 11, 2014, 11:41 am

It's not as bad as the weather people made it sound. Yes, it's rainy. No, it's not hellacious winds topping out at 65mph. I haven't heard of any power outages. Not sure what the rivers are doing. But I had to make a call yesterday rather than wait until last minute - pool league is cancelled Thursday the 11th. I was envisioning the wind and rain from 2009 when power to most of the city was out, at least that's what the forecasters made it sound like. Some schools closed today in anticipation of this as well. It sounds like the worst will be over before the evening.

If it was as bad as they made it sound, I didn't want players driving down the Skyway, or over the rivers, or through the woods of the Midway. I wanted to be safe rather than sorry. I also didn't want to possibly deal with multiple forfeits because players couldn't make it. Making it optional would have been a mess. So after talking to a few captains, I decided it was best just to skip this week. If I waited until this morning or last minute, maybe I wouldn't have cancelled, but I wanted to give as much notice as possible. Sure enough, if I didn't call it off it would be the storm of the millennium. If I do cancel, then it's an over-hyped rainy day with a breeze. And now it's really too late to go back and un-cancel, in fear of causing wide-spread confusion.

Some possible make up days: January 1st (New Year's Day night), February 19th (Reno pool tournament week), or after the last regularly scheduled league night in May or June. I'll start getting suggestions and feedback.

So no pool tonight, at least for CMPL. Stacy and the Oasis WILL be hosting a $5 buy-in tournament starting at 7:00pm. Depending on attendance, it may be a single or double elimination, 2 or 3 games. So if you still need your Thursday fix, come down to the Oasis.

Sorry for any inconveniences. I'll try not to listen to the weather reports anymore. Come down to the Oasis tonight and grill me, or at least get an easy win against me in the tournament. 


Week #7 Results
Dec 8, 2014, 11:04 pm

Just got the Last Call / Eagles score sheet from Terry and Jon (thanks!). They had a fairly close match, but all the rest of last week's games were pretty one-sided.

Here's how it all went down:

The aforementioned Eagles were on the road taking on the Last Call Rack Pack on December 4th. The home team was up 8-4 at the break, thanks to Matt's 3-0 hat trick. The Eagle's Craig and Jon beat Mike D. and Brian 2-0, for the road beer frame win. David Napier got the Eagles right back in it with a 3-0 win, making the score 8-7 Last Call. But the Rack Pack's Mike and Rob handled their business and each got 2-1 wins, giving the Rack Pack a 'close' 12-9 victory at home.

The Oasis Dragons were home facing the Oasis Outlaws. Jeff Brun started it off good for the Dragons getting all 3 of his games. But the Outlaws stormed back - Izzy got 3 wins, then Bulldog got 2, as did Gregg. That made it 7-5 Outlaws at the break. Mike Brandt and Kenny beat Walt and Micah in the beer frame for the Outlaw win, 2-0. Chris came back and got 2 for the Dragons to make it 7-8, but Kenny got 2 and Ricky got all 3 to make the final score 13-8 Outlaws.

The Oasis O-Team were also at home as the Down Lo Damned came over to the west side for a rumble. The O-Team came out strong and staked a 9-3 lead at the half thanks to Russ and James V.'s 3-0 wins. Steve and Rob got the beer frame from Mike and Joel, 2-1. In the bottom half the O-Team got one more 2-1 win than the Damned, which made the final score 14-7 Oasis.

In the biggest win of the week, the Down Lo Stickmen came out in force as they beat Duffy's 18-3. Cal, Brian Norman, Wheeze, and Scott all had 3-0 wins. The other 3 guys 'only' had 2-1 wins. Paul Wall and Madsack couldn't stop Kevin and Prana in the beer frame, though, as the home team lost 2-0. Wheeze thinks he had a break and run, but we were too drunk to remember for sure.

The Empire was home as it's closest CMPL neighbor, the Tackle Box, were in town for the night. In another lopsided win, the Empire knocked over the 'Box 17-4. Casey, DJ, Mike P., and Chris all had 3-0 wins. Charlie had the lone bright spot on the Tackle Box's sheet with a 2-1 victory. DJ and Curt beat the Bobs (Cody and Strobel) in the beer frame, 2-1.

Keeping the scales tipped, the Playa's of Down Lo hosted the Bankers of Oasis last week. The Playa's were up 8-4 at the beer frame thanks to Leland's 3-0 showing. Leland stayed at the table with Dave Kaplan and fought Barney and Rich for the honor. The Playa's won 2-0. In the bottom half, Kevin C got all 3 of his and the white-hot headphone-bustin' Tom LeClaire won another 3 for his club, too. The Bankers didn't have a 7th player so the home team picked up another free 3 points. Final score: 17-4 Playa's.  

Good luck next week - unless you are an Alligator Humper, you've got the bye.

Looks like a big storm is coming on Thursday this week - lots of rain and wind. Careful on the roads - ride with a SOBER buddy, especially if you're making the Midway trip.


Week #6 Results
Dec 1, 2014, 1:59 am

Sorry, I've been busy with a thing called 'work' in my life. I know it sounds crazy, but I've had to prioritize it ahead of pool league for a little bit. But now with the Thanksgiving break, I've had time to catch up. Plus I've got all the score sheets, most of the rosters, almost all of the player payments, and most of the player's last names - at least enough to move on. Still, pretty bad for 2 months into the season, but it's all I can do. This HAS to change the start of next season - it's the first item on the 2015-2016 Captain's meeting agenda. Next year - "your team can not play a match until dues are in and a complete roster (first and last names) is submitted" will be up for a vote, and I'm assuming it or something similar will pass.

Stats are now up and current! See the 'President's Corner' in the top right hand column of the home page for notes on a work-around for viewing the entire list on one page, not just the first 100 and a second page for 101+, or to see and filter just your own team. Please check for accuracy and let me know of any errors. I have all the scoresheets now and can verify if something seems off. The Top Shooter list has been started for this year as well. It's early, and those standings can change dramatically this time of year, but it's up none the less. Again, you need to have competed in 75% of the total games possible (12 or more out of 18, currently - it's actually 67% but close enough this early) to be on the list. The beer frame tracker still needs to be updated, but coming soon.

Here's what happened in week #6 (sorry, I've had to skip week #5's recap):

The Eagles Club was hosting the 1st place Bulldogs at their joint on November 20th. The home bar was up 7-5 at the break thanks to Terry's 3-0 showing. Bobbo and James Skellenger beat Ty and Robbie in the beer frame 2-1. In the bottom half the 'Dogs came back strong and got 7 of the final 9 points to win in the end, 12-9. Ty got a 3-spotter to help his team get back on track in the bottom half.

The Stickmen ventured out to the Tackle Box last week. The Down Lo squad won 12-9 thanks to Cele and current top shooter Brian Norman's 3-0 wins. Jonny kept it close with a 3-0 win of his own in the final match. The 'Box also got the beer frame - Bob Cody and Garrick beat Brandon and Sundy 2-0.

The Last Call Rack Pack made the furthest possible bar-to-bar trip as they headed south to Durham to face the Empire Club. Both teams were locked in a tie going into the beer frame, 6-6. Matt and Mike of the Last Call beat Zach and DJ in the beer frame 2-0. The Empire scored big in the bottom half getting 7 of the final 9 points. Troy got all 3 in the final match to give the Empire a 13-8 win.

The Down Lo Damned were at home facing their upstairs neighbors, Duffy's. The Damned won big, 14-7. David Larabee and Cowboy Rob each had 3-0 wins to help the cause. Ed and Ice Cream did win the beer frame though as they beat Rob and Philo 2-1.

The Dragons were at home facing the Down Lo Playa's for week 6. The Playa's were up big early, 10-2, thanks to 3-0 wins from Leland and red-hot Tom Leclaire. Sid and Walt of the Dragons beat Kyle and Dave in the beer frame, 2-1. In the bottom half, Kevin and Dave kept it going with 3-0 wins of their own. Final score, Playa's 17, Dragons 4.

The Outlaws and the O-Team were locked up in an inter-bar matchup at the Oasis. Teams traded 2-1 wins in the top half for a 6-6 tie. Mike and Aaron Rooney of the O-Team beat the Outlaw's Matt Fields and Izzy for the beer frame, 2-0. Each team traded another pair of 2-1 games to make the match tied at 9, but the O-Team didn't have a 7th player so they gave the final winning 3 points to the Outlaws. Final score 12-9, Outlaws.

The Bankers had their bye week last week, the Bulldogs have the bye for December 4th.

Good luck to everyone else!


Captain's Quarters

Dec 14, 2010, 10:48 pm

If you are the visiting team, please make sure to check more than just the score - verify that all the names are right, the beer frame is filled in correctly, and watch for 8-ball break and runs not counted by the home captain. There has been a few instances lately that the run outs are not being recorded by the home captain. It is their responsibility to put them down, but it also the visiting captain's responsibility to confirm the entire scoresheet. It's not easy to go back and change one stat for a game a few weeks ago.



 President's Corner
A temporary 'Statistics' page work around to see the whole list of players on one page: Click on green 'Statistics' tab in left hand column, then 1) select a team from the filter selector (any team) 2) now go back and select 'all teams' 3) now you can sort any heading and have every player show up, not just the first 100 players on the current page. A possible fix is coming.
