Hoping I didn't renew my registration too late....got it in this morning, but it says my status is "provisional (rookie)." Anybody else ever have their stuff expire the day before registration is due? Were you able to get in that season, or no?
Worried for nothing. Back in C Prairie 2 with at least 2 boardies.

I'm in there too!

Having never hit the 60-TCA mark in any of the seasons I played or followed along to (every season since LL65) through LL76, I finally, last season, got a much higher TCA combined with a high DE to earn a promotion. But it was probably a fluke. Looking at everyone else's stats, I feel thoroughly overmatched...

Back in Bayou D (Div 2). Was 1 spot away from promotion last season. Let's try it again!
Won some of Ben Stein's money, some of Roger Lodge's, some of Chris Harrison's. None of Alex Trebek's.

22 in the group creates the need for four rematches within the season. My double-ups are the two Langsdorfs, Cloninger & Murphy.

Moving up to B Taiga and my dad (my first ever referral) is in R Taiga.

Back up to B, after "earning" the promotion this time, and realigned to Laurel after 8 seasons in Badlands.

Isthmus D2 for me. It's one of my favorite words so I was very pleased to be realigned.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Finished one place out of the promotion zone but put back in B Horizon anyway. Lucky me, I guess!

Match Day 1 begins with my first ever 9(5), missing only marimba. My years of driving over the Delaware Memorial Bridge were actually good for something, after all!

Whereas it appears that my several times of driving across it did no good at al, sad to say. Add that to a bad miss on marimba (said vibraphone) and you get bomtr back in his accustomed place, with his foot atop my throat.

For the love of all that is good and holy, I can't believe how many times I've driven across that %*^&! bridge. Considered the Missouri, the Mississippi, the Ohio, the Hudson ... never got to the Delaware.
