Week 13 Details

Hi Metro League.  Sorry this is so late, but I watched Inception last night so I’ve been questioning reality all day today.  Here we go with luck week number 13.

  • Boomer – Anderson:  While both teams are on the rise, Anderson is riding high from last weeks authoritative victory over first place Sonnabend.  Boomer has been struggling with consistency this season so I’m going with Anderson.
  • Arndt – Lockwood:  Both rinks are in the middle of the league scrap-a-thon, but Anrdt looks to have a bit of an edge when you look at the cross table.  It isn’t going to be a cake walk though.  I’m going to predict an official measurement to decide the winner.
  • Lawrence – McGovern:  Maybe I’m dreaming, but the McGovern rink is on fire (or maybe I’m on the team so it just feels that way).  Seriously though, Lawrence is probably going to be our toughest match so far this year, but positive thinking tells me that we’re going to be buying the beer tonight.
  • Stanek-Beranek:   Finally, the two rinks with similar names face off this week.  Don’t let the records fool you, Stanek has run up against a lot of good teams so far while Beranek has had a slightly easier schedule.  Stanek will win the coin flip but Beranek will take the match.
  • Lichty – McLellan: McLellan’s newfound confidence will boost them to an early lead scoring three in the first end, but the focus of Lichty will rebound for the win as this rink looks to establish themselves as contenders as we turn the corner.
  • Erickson-Dubois:  Dubois at 5:5 is sitting squarely in the middle of the league and based on their record, have shown that they can hold their own against anyone else in the same boat.  Erickson has struggled this season but I had a dream last night (or was it) that they would be the upset of the week.
  • Kruse – Rohde:  I like both of these teams for different reasons, Kruse for their consistency through the lineup, and Rohde for the skips ability to finish strong.  The records are speaking to me on this one, Kruse will take it if they bring their original lineup.
  • Dveris – Jansen:  These are two rinks that have fought hard but come up short more times than not.  Both need a win this week, but Dveris wants it more.  Look for regulation to end in a tie and for Jansen to take the win.

Again, sorry for the delay, I know a lot of you call in sick to work when you don’t get your regular fix of TheHogLine.  I’m trying to get the rest of the schedule into the database and I have no good excuse for not doing it.

On a news worthy note, there are rumblings of a Metro League chili cook off being planned.  Look for details by the end of this week.

Cross your fingers for week 13.  Good curling.
