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):

  • Mudville (86-64) - Franchise moved up one place in 2006.  League Power Index: 4
  • Andover (82-68) - Fought it out with Trinidad for first place through Week 25.  Power Index: 7
  • Uptown (80-70) - Defending Gore Cup Champ.  Ran out of gas late in the season.  Power Index: 8
  • New York (74-76) - Bottom Feeder Champ in 2005.  Power Index: 9

Semifinals - New York wins in 5 games, Andover wins in 7.

 

Finals - New York vs. Andover.  Andover took the season series 4-2.

2006 Winner: New York Knights
