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 2006 Entrants (in order of seeding):

  • Alphaville (84-66) - Tied with Margaritaville but advanced here due to tiebreakers.  League Power Index: 7
  • Dinkytown (80-70) - Most wins in franchise history and first finish above 3rd.  Power Index: 4
  • San Francisco (77-74) - Late run to tie for first, they were defeated in a one-game playoff by Roseville to decide the division title.  Power Index: 8
  • Gorilla (69-81) - 12-game improvement over 2005.  Power Index: 12

Semifinals - Alphaville wins in 6 games, Dinkytown wins in 5.

 

Finals - Dinkytown vs. Alphaville.  Alphaville took the season series 4-2.

2006 Winner: Alphaville Buggles
