    Columbus Crew SC Grouchy™ Point Cup 2022
    [​IMG]
    Welcome, welcome, my percipient prognosticators and sagacious sibyls! You’ve arrived just in time to indulge in that most eternal (infernal?) of all contests. I, of course, speak of the

    GROUCHY™ POINT CUP!

    A haggard veteran? The virgin entrant? A bumbling internet message board vagrant? All are invited (ill-fated?) to take part! The rules? A trifle. The rewards? Inconceivable!* The fee? YOUR SOUL Gratis, of course.

    So, please—please!—stay for a while (forevermore?) and join us in this amusing distraction. I’m sure you’ll find it… stimulating.

    Once again… welcome to the competition. Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring.

    A GAME OF GUESSES
    How does one participate in the Grouchy™ Point Cup? It’s simple, and the rules ain’t too difficult. See for yourself: RULES & REGULATIONS.

    Brass tacks: Get your guess on for each Crew regular season match (and other random stuff!) in the pre-match thread. Win a point (or points?!) with each correct guess.

    Whoever has the most points by the end of the season will be crowned champion, like good ol’ @jairadballerina. Plus, you’ll win the respect of your competitors (probably not), world-wide renown (definitely not), and lavish prizes (hahaha)!

    Standings will be tracked here. I may periodically post the results in this thread. However, I am bad at this, so I can’t promise anything.

    PLEASE NOTE:
    I may miss your tally for a match if you don't vote on the pre-match poll, so... PLEASE VOTE BEFORE THE POLL CLOSES. If the poll closes before you’ve had a chance to vote, or if you have a last minute change of heart, send me $10 a message and I’ll fix the game your vote. Also, let me know if I mess up your vote or don't award a deserved point. I’ll correct the error.

    WARNING: Please vote on the poll in this thread.** It will be used as a tiebreaker, if needed. You have a few weeks to make your choice, so don't dawdle.

    As always, lose by two (or more). All hail Grouchy!

    And with that… the game is afoot.




    *Inconceivable as in I cannot conceive why you’d think I’d give you a damn thing.

    Is there a minimum number of games for this stat? You could have a guy top the charts by playing 1 minute and making two passes.

    10 more seconds of defense and I'd be on the board.

    Can't win em all if you don't win the first two. Onward to an undefeated season.

    Grouchy™ Points and a Crew win! Couldn't ask for a better combo.*

    upload_2022-3-14_10-41-38.png

    You did it, @Dan Milton, @Pauncho, @Kryptonite, @zman31, @Bill Archer, @KHT_Crew, @Crewster, @GoCrew1996, @west ham sandwich, @DAFCrew, @rolandD, @Lichte for Life, @LastOfEleven, @djtrinidad, @hardhead, @Ueberjames, @Big J 0526, @Schellotor, @SLSHOT01, @theshark130, and @TRUJDUB21!

    Amazingly, we still have two perfect players in KHT_Crew and djtrinidad. Huzzah!








    *well, except for everyone who voted for Caleb Porter Master Class or Hope Restored... that's what you get for having confidence.

    And I looked, and behold a pale draw: and his name that sat on him was Grouchy, and Points followed with him.

    upload_2022-3-21_12-2-8.png

    It was everyone's favorite result... A CANADIAN WIN! Way to demand butter, @TKyle stupidface, @Pauncho, @CrewDust, @POdinCowtown, @Sagz, @kgilbert78, @110toyourleft, @LastOfEleven, @djtrinidad, @DrunkandDisorderly, @hardhead, @Ueberjames, @Big J 0526, @SLSHOT01, @TyphonInc, and @TRUJDUB21.

    Can anyone stop djtrinidad? He is... like a diamond. Flawless and perfect. I envy him. I want to be him. I hate him.





    Where was I? Oh yeah, huzzah!






    Also... USMNT matches?! Hmmmm.

    Finally on the board. Would have had 2 if I wasn't too lazy to vote for the Toronto game. Could have had 3 if the Crew could defend CKs in San Jose.

    I'm not on the board either! I did well last year.

    I keep taking the most optimistic choice, taking the prop bet so it's my own fault. I'll embrace the dark side soon enough.

    I'm generally optimistic about this team so I usually vote win by 1 at home and tie on the road.
