After much groveling, I've successfully extricated myself from the doghouse. Thanks for the great advice, @puttputtfc...
But enough about me. Come get your Grouchy™ Points!
Two matches. Loads of points. Wahooo!
Here be the folks who scored a point from the US-Costa Rica match: @Pauncho, @zman31, @ZipSix, @Hamburgler03, @POdinCowtown, @jairadballerina, @Sagz, @kgilbert78, @LastOfEleven, and @TKyle.
Crew-Miami? Yeah, we got point-getters: @KCbus, @DAFCrew, @stanger, @the_rickler, @JimmyD2, and @TyphonInc.
@WhiteHartShame is the bestest; he grabbed a Grouch in both matches!
I'm 9 points out with 4 to play. Just like our Crew, I'm ready to pounce!
Stupid Own Goal, ruining my grouchy..
Anytime, my friend.
Remember, Crew fans, when you need advice on marital bliss your pal puttputtfc is here to help.
I am on one of the greatest late season runs in the history of Grouchy Points. Hopefully The Crew are doing the same !!!
We're not quite dead yet! Can you feel them Grouchy™ Points in yer bones?!
Huzzah, @Pauncho, @Grouchy, @zman31, @KCbus, @POdinCowtown, @Crewster, @west ham sandwich, @LastOfEleven, @hardhead, @Ueberjames, @TKyle, @SLSHOT01, and @soccerncbus. Y'all are so all-knowing and smart and stuff.
Hugs and kisses!
The end is nigh, my lovelies. Get them Grouchy™ Points while you can!
Not a single wretched soul claimed a point against NYRB, but we had six hit against Orlando. Congratulations, @Pauncho, @B-M-T, @jairadballerina, @Crewster, @hardhead, and @WhiteHartShame.
Watch yer backs!
So, who is ahead? Anything left besides the 2 USMNT matches?
Yeah, that jerk should update the board or... oh ********.
Ah, that brings back memories...
Oh... hey! Anyone using this thread? 'Cause I got Grouchy™ Points to hand out.
From the DC game? Congrats, @DAFCrew, @stanger, and @JimmyD2. And triple congrats to @zman31, @POdinCowtown, @jairadballerina, @Robbo Crewfan, @Big J 0526, and @Tobias C.
How about the F!re finale? Well, good show, @ZipSix, @Hamburgler03, @KCbus, @Crewster, DAFCrew, @redi44crew, @NUFC Fan, @LastOfEleven, @WhiteHartShame, stanger, @Ueberjames, @Crew Chuck35, @the_rickler, JimmyD2, Tobias C, @TKyle, @Schellotor, @TyphonInc, @theshark130, @Russ Freistat, and @TRUJDUB21.
And US-Mexico? @foozer and @runningoz had faith enough for a point, but @Kryptonite, @YITBOS, @KHT_Crew, @kgilbert78, and @DrunkandDisorderly were living that dos-a-cero life and took two points.
Finally, there was US-Jamaica. Somehow from a malort-induced fever dream, Hamburgler03 snagged a point.
Tallying everything up and we were left with a 20 to -76 tie between jairadballerina and some stupidface @hardhead for the title. But ties suck, SOOOOOO....
TO THE TIE BREAKER!
From this very thread, who would have the most combined yellow cards and assists? Fortunately, @Dan Milton, @Pauncho, @Minnman, Hamburgler03 @west ham sandwich, @MLSinSTL, Tobias C, @boomshea, @associa_tionfootball, and @soccerdad72 decided to VOTE FOR PEDRO!
Unfortunately... and, trust me, I never thought I'd say this... but...
WE'VE GOT A THREE-WAY
That's right, folks, Hamburgler03, hardhead, and jairadballerina are a gaggle of sluts. I've been saying it all along.
So... what to do?
WE GO TO ADDED TIME, OF COURSE!
The next three USMNT matches will count towards the 2021 Grouchy™ Point Cup. And this ain't no three-horse race: everyone can still compete and those of y'all in touching distance still have a chance to claim the crown. If we're still tied up after this qualifying window, the title will be split.
You can't escape 2021, you fools.
Oh great oogly moogly
Did you say...
I'm most upset I didn't think of this.
Well, I find it amusing that I finished 13th with 13 points--given that my jersey number in my playing days was 13--in honor of the great Gerd Mueller, who wore it for Germany in the 1974 World Cup (I really, really dislike Bayern, but my first real soccer boots were Gerd Muellers).
The US wins! (yay)
Five beautiful jerks get Grouchy™ Points! (wahoo)
None of the GP leaders get a point! (wtf u guys)
Kudos to @zman31, @B-M-T, @Big J 0526, @Schellotor, and @Regis Prograis for claiming a point. Special congrats to Regis for breaking onto the board so late in the game. I believe in you, buddy!
As for the rest of you... SHAME!
See you in uh... three days?
OF COURSE NOW THAT I CANT WIN I START GETTING THINGS RIGHT
My hopes and dreams.
@LaMacchia, you did it, you crazy bastard. You really did it. Congratulations, king.
Uh... @Hamburgler03, @hardhead, and @jairadballerina... WELCOME TO THE LAST CHANCE MOTEL! Any youse planning on scoring ever again?
Let's find out on Wednesday!
I'm pacing myself
I'm talking about everyone who grabbed them Grouchy™ Points last night, of course.
Way to go, @Pauncho, @CrewDust, @YITBOS, @TrueCrew, @jairadballerina, @Crewster, @kgilbert78, @110toyourleft, @LastOfEleven, @WhiteHartShame, @Ueberjames, and @Crew Chuck35!
On to the next one!
Nah, just kidding. This competition is over.
There he is, Mister Grouchy
There he is, a good guesser
The dreams of a dozen posters
Who are pretty stupid
May come true on Big Soccer
Oh he may turn out to be
The grouch of predictability
There he is, Mister Grouchy
Congratulations, @jairadballerina! You're the 2021 Grouchy™ Point Cup Champion!
As for the rest of you... bow ye heads, for a near-omniscient god walks amongst us. Oh, and feel bad because you're bad and not as smart as @jairadballerina.
Thanks for playing along, folks. See you next season!*
*the season starts in a few weeks? well ********.
I can't believe I won a made up contest on a message board that should have been put to pasture about 10 years ago following small market team for America's 5th most popular sport.
Thanks Grouchy...errr....Chr1st for running this thing.
You forgot the minor detail about the team almost getting stolen along the way......
