Well, we've reached the end of the regular season. With very little rain this year, many teams have already completed their schedules. There are still a few matches remaining with playoff implications.

The Smokers and Chancellor's 4.0 match to be played this week will presumably decide the second playoff spot in their division.

SAP and Lost Forest have a matchup that will decide who is the winner of their division (SAP beat the Rolido Boys in their recent makeup match, with John Grego showing the form everyone expected when trouncing Robert Kane). What I didn't realize is that the first week of playoffs this year (the July 9th matches) will be held at home sites and not all at LLTC. There's been some discussion about allowing the higher "seeded" team to somehow get the home court advantage (though that "advantage" does include incurring court costs and providing balls), but I'm not sure if there's any way that will/can be implemented.

Lastly, the much anticipated Ahmed-Morales final set is to be played before the Hurricanes and Deucebags battle for a third and perhaps final time. I believe Miguel and Sarosh may finish right before the scheduled match on Thursday.


  1. Nice summary. As if LLTC is an advantage for anyone.....

  2. I understand that Sarosh and Miguel may be playing tomorrow night.

    Condolences and prayers go out to Diana Wengler, who has lost her father. Diana does a great job and, like all of her co-workers, doesn't get enough recognition.

  3. Information on Diana's Dad:

    Sam Burnett, (Diana Wengler’s father) passed away Friday morning June 26 around 2:00am after a long battle with cancer.

  4. Original info was correct. Sarosh and Miguel playing on Thursday.

  5. When will the wild card information be out? Will Houston be getting one in 3.5, 40, 4.5 and/or 5.0?
