I've never had to have off site people come join but its possible.

I would like to have it gametz only but if that cant happen and we dont get at least 9 or 10. I could invite some people too I suppose.

That is if everyone agrees that off site people can join.

Looks like everyone is in the group and almost everyone has paid. One question left to ask.

Since there is only 7 of us it seems to be in the middle of having 1 or 2 places being paid so Ill take a vote to see what you guys want.

Should we do winner take all ($50) are have 1st and 2nd with the amount I have up.($35 and $15 or $40 and $10)

How do you delete brackets? I started one thinking if you don't save it it gets deleted, but that was not the case. So technically I have two entries.

I'm surprised it was that high as no one had even won before.

What'd they shoot in the second half? From 3? 53 points in a half against a top team suggest one team was on fire.
