Dung Challenge Cup Week Two

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO: A friend gave me some compilation CD's he burned of his "Best of..." for years 2005 and 2006 in music. Some good stuff.

WHAT I'M READING: Grand Theft Jesus. Damn Good Book.

WHAT I'M WATCHING: Watched Sunshine the other day in my Jeff Award's List quest. Pretty darn good sci-fi film. Plus, MLS action!

SO the Dung Challenge Cup continues to roll on. Thus far, my pretty wife, Barefoot Adult, is whupping the ole Dungmaster's booty.

Here's the standings after the first two weeks of the MLS season.

Dungmaster----4W 3D 7L 15 points
Barefoot Adult----7W 3D 4L 24 points

It's still early, and we're working through this weekend's results so I will come back and claim glorious victory.

But right now, the expert is losing to the novice. And I can't deny that it hurts a bit in the ole pride.

Revenge will be mine! And as Khan taught me, revenge is a dish best served cold, and space is very, very cold my friend.

Be seeing you.

Introducing the Dung Challenge Cup!

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO: A awesome Tom Waits tune called "Never Let Go" and some old school New Order, especially "Ceremony".

WHAT I'M READING: Newest issue of MajorLeagueSoccer magazine. Just finished up a book on the Fairtax.

WHAT I'M WATCHING: Just finished the Honeymooners box set, and of course soccer. Manchester United chasing a repeat in England, and MLS just kicked off.

A QUICK POST to introduce a new feature to the blog this year, called the Dung Challenge Cup.

My beautiful wife (Barefoot Adult) and I will be predicting the MLS games all season long to see who's better at it, the diehard fan (me) or the layman (her).

The rules are simple. Each game, we must both pick a winner. If you choose correctly, you get three points. If you are incorrect, you get zero points. If the game ends in a draw, you get one point. Winner is the person with the most points at the end of the year, and thus the Dung Challenge Cup champion.

Here's the standings after the opening weekend.
Dungmaster W-1 D-2 L-5 5 points
Barefoot Adult W-4 D-2 L-2 14 points

She takes an early lead, but the season is just starting!

Be seeing you.
