Unless it's the weekends (and also most weekdays), then expect a little GTS.

week 2 predictions:

purple over sand (jody's coaching impact emerges)
blue over sand (assuming Boy is back)
blue over lime (lime's first challenge)
black over lime (lime still trying to figure out a strategy against a challenge)
red over white (undefeated matchup - red continues their dominance)
pink over white (depending on who shows up for white, may be a tough week 4 them)
black over orange (close game, orange gets outrun by kaplan)
yellow over orange (close game, yellow was spent after first game)
pink over yellow (close game, showcase game of the week perhaps, abe seals the deal)
red over purple (red becomes first ranked team, w/ matchup w/ pink in week 3)

CaseyK-Red 4-0
Will-Pink 4-0

jwill-Black 3-1

Brosh-White 2-2
Mills-Yellow 2-2

You're jinxing me!

Just kidding, I like predictions.

I predict perfect attendance by Pink for a second week in a row.

You might ask them about their challenge against Purple last week. They were down at half 8-5 and came back to win on double game point.

JWill, no love for Orange this week?? It'll be tough, Bustin and Brad won't be there for certain.

Yellow over White
White will be better if they get attendance for the tourney but they seem to be lacking week to week.

Blue over Purple
Haven't seen purple's games but Wax's team impressed me when we played them.

Red over Orange
Pink's speed hurt Orange in the end and I think Red may be faster than we are

Black over Sand
I think Black is well suited to play in the wind we've been seeing on Sundays.

Purple over Orange
Two assumptions: No team will go 0-14, and Jody has to be getting improvement from the team. I think this is the game it results in a win.

Black over Yellow
I think black has enough players suited to defend yellow and I also like Blacks disc skills more.

Sand over Lime
Think it'll be a close game. Lime's lack of handlers worries me based on the wind weve been seeing.

Blue over White
Same reason as White's other game, I assume they'll be missing some players.

Not picking Pink's games just cause I think it's bad mojo. See you all Sunday!

The litany of gutless prognosticators make me long for the days of Nick's rambling rankings that were littered with errors. If you guys want to pick winners, then lets set lines and throw some money down.

10) Dustin & Ryan (Purple)
This team has already squandered winnable games against also-rans Lime, White and Orange. They then capped off their losing streak by demonstrating the inability to close out a depleted Red team on a mud field that left their air game grounded. Expect an 0-9 start, but gear up for the Week 5 Round 2 rematch with White.
9) Vikki (Lime)
Their only win to date against the slightly more hopeless Purple on universe point.
8 ) Brosh (White)
I found out two things against this team last week. Seaton is not in better than me and Brosh likes me less than I thought. Props to Janna for skipping out on the team for two weeks in a row. She's gone from protesting my selection to refusing to participate in the league.
7) Champagne (Sand)
They upgraded from hopeless to hapless by picking up bob lee. File it as problem #6436 with our league that bob lee is able to pick up on a team. Is there a more identifiable figure from Fayetteville ultimate for the last 20 years than bob lee? Yet, he's picking up in our leagues. The Champagne v Brosh score isn't getting reported before Winter League 2013.
6) Black (Jwill)
Fraud alert. Expect their cruel regression towards the mean to kick off this week. Two of their wins came against teams limping without first rounders. They can't play D, don't play clean O and fail to effectively utilize their best match-up on the field. This team desperately needs an athletic male pick up. Cloudy skies and rain in the forecast will prevent a potential Joe Garrett sighting at the supplemental. Punctuality and enthusiasm will only carry them so far. I like Joe Delnero. He's always enthusiastic.
5) Orange (David Marfas aka Doug's bff)
An already athletic team picked up the best athlete making the trip from Tulsa. They kept pace last week despite the absence of bustin's big throws. High winds will cause them to lean to heavily on their cast of older players. Cam's softness in regards to pick up attendance is highlighted by the two college girls that braved the weather and came out to play ultimate. Unfortunately, there was no Cam to keep them warm or throw them the disc. Cam fails.
4) Red
They have played cleaner offense than previously expected. To date they have been able to keep the disc alive long enough to take high percentage shots at the endzone. Working several more marginally talented males into their line up this week will dampen the team's heavily documented great team chemistry.
3) Blue (Wax)
Wax's poor leadership and inability to adjust on the fly cause them to drop their first two games when Boy went down with ankle injury. Boy's arrogance continues to place him on the field to play for pride and do further harm to his ankle's recovery. They'll tread water as long as Boy can heal or just limp around the field.
2) Yellow (Mills)
Their prized pick up became so bored with Sarasota that he joined Rawhide. He says he'll be back in town this week which gives them the levelheadedness their twin towers of tumult lack. Note to captains: the supplemental tilts in your favor if you're roommate is the TD that allows you to effectively whine and lobby continually.
1) Sangria (Will Sharp)
They have won despite Jwill's doubts about Kearney/Stu and his insisting to refer to them as "pink." Cause for concern is there proclivity for playing close games against weak opponents. Lack of discipline eventually leads to losses and chaos as close games are more likely to get chippy. Though the biggest imbroglio in league involved their game with the widest margin after the outcome was decided. The lessons as always: Jwill is right that Kearney is a jerk. Listen to J0y, because she knows spirit and memorized the league mission statement from 2002.

Notably present: bob lee is back. Amy E returned, sans snacks. To be fair, she did offer me some Fritos. Mmm frito chili pie. Blue's bearded behemoth fanboy stocks their sideline yelling things that would only amuse immature chilidren. More specifically, they amuse Casey Boy.

6-2 on picks on the weekend.

And I picked a giants/pats superbowl at the beginning of the post season.

And I'm taking Giants, 27-24

I don't know, the talent at receiver for the Patriots is so much better now than it was the last time these two met in the Super Bowl.

Don't think I deserve the credit. More likely that it should go to Levi and Chuck who in their first weekend with the team gave us just what we needed.
