Week Eleven Details

Howdy Metro Leaguers,

A big thanks to Sean who did a great job filling in for me while I was away.  It sounded like a very exciting week with lots of close games, I’m sorry I had to miss it, but California is OK this time of year too.

Here are the games for the week.

  • Arndt – Kruse [5]  Kruse has been on the move in the last few weeks and their momentum will stay with them going into the holiday break.
  • Lawrence – Stanek [2]  With age comes wisdom and that’s hard to contend with, but both teams have had problems with consistency.  If their shirts match tonight, look for Lawrence to take the win.
  • Wanensteen – Sonnabend [6]  I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but there are a few teams who have had a very tough schedule during the first half of this year.  Wangensteen has shown that they can play to anyone’s level, but I know that a Christmas victory really means a lot to Sonnabend.  Look for an efficient win for Sonnabend followed by plenty of egg nog upstairs.
  • Lichty – Rohde [1]  Lichty and Rohde are both in the same boat, some big wins, but also some difficult losses.  Sean flipped a coin last week, I’m going to use my magic 8 ball and call …… Lichty for the win.
  • Dveris – Erickson [8]  Another deadlock.  If both teams have their varsity roster tonight it should be close.  Dveris has the advantage when one considers their win over Beranek.
  • Dubois – Anderson [7]  Another close one and again I’m going to use the PAB index (performance against Beranek) to make the call for me.  Give it to Dubois, but not without some drama.
  • McGovern – Lockwood [3]  Easiest pick of the week.  McGovern is looking so good now that they have their 2nd back that I heard they aren’t even going to sweep this week.  Sounds like a stupid move especially since Lockwood will be looking for revenge after Sonnabend broke their five game win streak, but I just have a feeling about McGovern.
  • Boomer – McLellan [4]  McLellan really needs a holiday victory and they’re hoping to catch Boomer sleepy after a bye week.  If they can stay focused McLellan will break their streak and fulfill my upset of the week.

As with the Thanksgiving games, attendance is the wild card this week.  Do yourself a favor and take Thursday off so you can spend a little more time upstairs after the game.  Merry Christmas dear readers.

    Good Curling

    1. I don’t know about the egg nog but I know I’m not working tomorrow and intend to do my fair share of post game “staying at the club too late”.
      Magic 8 ball call of the week? “Concentrate and ask again”
