Log Jam 2008 Preview..


Tough week for me personally, with the passing of a tremendous uncle. I wasn't able to write much on worlds because of that and a lack of internet conenction at the new home for most of the week.

Firebird heads to St Alban's Vermont this weekend for LogJam. We're going down with a very small but potentially talented roster, so it might be another big weekend for a team having a great season.

12 men's teams, with three canadian squads (Mephisto, Firebird, and Magma).

Here is how our schedule shapes up

  • Our first game is not till 11am (sweet) and we play our biggest game versus the Providence Pack Dogs. If we win, we really help our chances of finishing top 2 in the pool and automatically making it to semis. It should be a tough match.
  • We then play the top seed Chuck Wagon in another tough match. Our toughest games are the first two, so we better be ready for the challenge
  • We play Zebra Muscles third, and will look to win our third straight from them this year. Zebra looks to improve every time we see them.
  • We finish Saturday versus unknown 'Good News Everyone'. We hope it's not Sockeye taking a break from worlds. Damn pick up teams and their ?? factor.
  • Sunday morning we play Magma and hopefully set ourselves up for playoffs
Little is known about our opponents, but we have the following objectives
  • Be ready on point one Saturday
  • Put teams away when we get the chance, something good teams need to learn before they can be very good or great
  • Have fun
I'm not one to hype american tourneys, but this one looks fun
-Finals for women and men will be in a stadium
-Double Dragon is hosting a game of STUMP. We are told "Don't ask questions, just show up."

Inquiring minds want to know. What is STUMP?

WE still don't know. We never made it to the outdoor party.

The excessive wait time for dinner and the weather was the cause of that.
