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):

  • Dawns (100-50) - 2005 runner up - perhaps an even more disheartening 2nd place this year - winning 100 games but still finishing 2nd in the Sutton Division.  League Power Index: 3
  • Wayne (92-58) - Tight race all season in the Seaver.  Power Index: 4
  • Fort Marquis (89-62) - Clawed to a first-place tie in the Blyleven, but lost the playoff to South Philly.  Power Index: 6
  • Napoleon (70-80) - Division champ in 2005 - fell off this season.  Power Index: 8

Semifinals - Napoleon wins in 6 games, Fort Marquis wins in 7.

 

Finals - Napoleon vs. Fort Marquis.  Napoleon took the season series 4-2.

2006 Winner: Fort Marquis Green Army Men
