I'm ready for another season mid-pack C-Rundle. :)

Is there going to be another Rundle in the Jundle?

Once I get a job, I will increase my LL membership dues to the level where I can join private rundles.

I don't have a job yet. :(

I can't believe that the new season is only 4 days away now! I'm looking forward to it, as always.

Matchups are posted.

Dawgonnit. If I hadn't gone ronin, I'd be in Ape Rarely, instead, I find myself and my 5-game winning streak in Bee Jooney-purr. Ah well. I benefitted from a couple of late-season forfeits in 72, so best for everyone that I earn my promotion honestly.

Is it Monday yet?

It looks like I missed the deadline. I'm really sorry about that. It will definitely be back for LL74.

Well, if he's healthy now, I can get my long-awaited (for me anyway) matchup with Lively Len Wein on June 8. Of course, it would be in D League, but still. . .

I was all set to take on a few friends in Frontier C and then I checked this morning and found myself in Frontier B. I had missed promotion by one spot so I guess somebody must have dropped out.

Does anybody know how common this is?

I think it's not necessarily that uncommon, Grant. With new league realignments and drop-outs, if you find yourself on a break-point from one Rundle to another, you can often get the extra promotion level fairly readily.

Good luck in Frontier B!

(Edit to add what I meant to add before submitting the first time: Your performance on our favorite show lends me to believe your time in Frontier B may also be short, and the A Rundle had better watch out)
I'm living proof to show that a good attitude, a Southern accent, a ridiculous beard, and a middling amount of trivia knowledge can get you onto Jeopardy!

I was going to post that this is my seventh time going across the C towards the Horizon, but I'm already on PrussC's list of boardies.
I noticed that one-day record-holder RCraig is once again active, in A Glacier.

I can assure you that any adventures at the A level will be brief and painful. I think the Jeopardy! format is better suited to me. When I have time to think I often just cause myself more trouble.

I'm back in LL this season! Super excited! Two years ago, I joined LL, and quit halfway through the season (taking 0(0)s the rest of the way) due to the torturous combo of (a) taking it way too seriously and (b) doing poorly. I think I'm mature enough now. E Prairie Div 2

A couple of days before I officially registered (right before the deadline) I played along to P&P Math 3 and got 12/12. Hopefully that's a good omen, though my performance in the 1D I actually played in this offseason was not so good.

I'm in Pacific R.

Thank you econgator and Woof for your assistance in getting me in.

Should be fun.

Was a rookie in LL72, played probably the worst defense out of everyone and now I'm in Bayou E (Div 1). My goal is to definitely get up to D this time, where I think I belong via Peter Principle.

I get to play an Egghead, a Chaser, a ToC Champion, and one of the four people worldwide who didn't use a lifeline on the first 14 questions of Millionaire.
