    Default FOBL CUP XVII - Opening Round matchups and general info

    Bottom four teams by wins from each league thrown into the hopper. Two sequences of 4 generated by www.random.org, with the team with the highest number of wins of the 4 as number 1 and the team withe the fewest wins as 4. The two sequences determine who plays which game, while the "coin flipper" function determines the home team.

    TRE @ SEM
    UTA @ IND
    ORO @ DES
    MIN @ ARZ

    Depending on how my next three evenings come down, the Cup could start as early as tomorrow evening at 6P Eastern. Get your imports in!

    The FOBL cup is a traditional Opening Day precursor...a tournament style exhibition process that pits GL teams against VL teams wherever possible. Done just for fun. If I get a chance, I'll eventually post the box scores and logs. Maybe.

    And, IIRC, started primarily because Shaw and He-Who-Remains-Dead-To-Us wanted a chance to play an exhibition game...
