Holiday Pain in BFNBA week 7

Holiday Pain in BFNBA week 7

Jrue Holiday is your week 7 BFNBA MVP, leading the Moustaches to the upset of the season and topping the player rater. The Killers put up a good fight, but their season opening streak was stopped at 6 games, going down by just 2 long bombs. Boom’s Dubs were only six assists away from victory, but the Pelicans pulled another win out of their beak to keep the streak alive.

The Rhinos are still rampaging adding a road win at Don’t Get Fired stadium, and moving up to equal 5th spot on the ladder. The Piss & Trotters also consolidated their playoff claims with wins against the Thunder and Lakers.

Has Smokey Davis given up already? There’s three injured players on his roster and two healthy bodies on his injured reserve.The situation in Smoke Angeles is echoing that of their LA namesake. All he needs is Swaggy!

This week, the leagues’ two longest winning streaks meet in Plow Orleans. Can the Rhino’s giant killing ways continue? Or will Bourbon St get the better of the young Dallas roster?

Best of luck this week & don’t forget to set your lineups through the silly season.

Dubs Stadium update

Dubs Stadium update

The Warriors today unveiled updated plans for the new stadium some of us hope to visit in 2018.

http://www.nba.com/warriors/sf

It looks pretty good, although details are still sketchy. They do have a catchy new name for the project though – ‘Bridge to SF’

Features of the updated design include:

  • 18,064 seat multi-purpose arena
  • More than 100,000 square feet of retail space, mostly food-oriented
  • 3.2 acres of plazas and public space – approximately 30% of the total site
  • A 35,000 square foot public plaza on 3rd Street, larger than Union Square
  • A 24,000 square foot public plaza of open space on the southeast side of the project
  • A view deck with newly opened vistas to San Francisco Bay
  • Approximately 580,000 square feet of office/biotech/lab space
  • Approximately 950 Parking spaces (in three concealed/underground levels)
  • 300 spaces of permanent bike valet parking

The Warriors first arrived in San Francisco from Philadelphia in 1962 and played their first nine seasons in the City by the Bay. The Warriors’ new ownership, led by Lacob and Guber, purchased the team in 2010. In 2012, the team announced plans to build a new sports and entertainment facility in San Francisco. The team is still targeting the 2018-19 NBA season to debut its new arena.

With some luck, a crew of Beers will be there to celebrate the launch!

Dragic Moustache Ride

Dragic Moustache Ride

Week six of the Beers Fantasy NBA season finished with Goran Dragic of Mate’s Moustaches eeking out a .003 FT% category win by shooting .909 for the matchup, to just beat the Dubs 5-4. The Mo’s joined Boom Dizzle and 3 other teams in a logjam for the final two playoffs seeds, with a 2-4 record.

Kyle Lowry was the only player above Dragic on the player rater for the week, but couldn’t guide Smoke Angeles to a win. They lost to the charging Rhinos, who strung together their second win on the trot. The Thunder welcomed back 2014 MVP, Kevin Durant with a win over the Piss and the ‘Cans & Killers continued their streaks at the top of the table.

In week seven, Plow Orleans travel to face Boom Dizzle on their home floor in what should be a fiery matchup. And the Trotters will have their hands full trying to keep KD & KLove contained at the Pigsty.

Best of luck this week gentleman. And is it just me, or does the Celtics +9 just seem wrong tomorrow after beating the Wiz by 8 at home today?

Beers Makeover

Beers Makeover

Berko leaked the news on Facebook so here is an official post about it – The Beers are getting a makeover.

After being neglected for years, the club once again will have an online home. It’s a work in progress, so save your critiques until Australia Day. But the club’s permanent colour scheme going forward will be the same as this page, black, white, orange & amber – with green & gold reserved for special occasions. The font of the logo has also changed to go back to the club’s roots, and the retro mug motif has been replaced by a simplified one colour version.

Since a lot of the regulars stopped playing, and some moved out of ‘Vegas, we’ve lost touch and don’t catch up nearly often enough. So going forward there will be four annual events organised every year. They’re roughly quarterly and details will go up here on the website once decided. But in brief here are some advance details.

Australia Day – 3on3 tournament at Kingscliff
St Paddy’s Golf Day – Golf then Irish Pub
Cricket in July – family cricket day, Beers rules
Oktoberfest – Megabowl, then German Bierhaus

Some of us are also trying to organise a trip to the USA in late 2018, to coincide with the Golden State Warriors new stadium opening.

So stay tuned, as Plow gets time, the site will be gradually finished. It may even feature some basketball!

Cheers
