Superleague Update for January 29th
I have attached the scored, standings and scorers table from our first weekend. So far it looks like the teams are evenly matched. You may notice that all the scorers have not been represented in the scorers table. This is because they either have not paid or they were not written down on the score sheets.
As the superbowl is this Sunday we will be accelerating the schedule in an attempt to accomodate NFL fans. I expect that we will finish a little after 3:00.
See you guys on Sunday,
