Well, I finished a few points shy of the promotion zone in my C rundle again, and I'm beginning to think maybe that's where I belong. Nah! I had pretty much the usual metrics I had in 14 seasons in B and 3 (disasters!) in A, hopefully I'll climb back to B sometime soon.
Tied my last match 6(4), matching my opponent precisely with the same point assignments. Maybe there's a term for this?

Jimmie Walker is now doing commercials for the "Medicare Helpline". I cringe every time one of them comes on.

I have seen that one several times. He can't be THAT hard up for cash, can he?

For the first time in my 31 seasons, I finally won a rundle. Still no clue how I won (-35 QPct, -74 DE, only 82 TCA -- but only 71 TCA, sure, that had a lot to do with it ... :) ). The guy who led the rundle in TCA with 110 finished 4th! He had no ties for the season, though. If he had just 1, he would have made the top 3.

This was my sixth non-rookie season and I have yet to leave D. I've never come close to relegation, and haven't come all that close to promotion (with the exception of last season, where I finished one spot shy of it). It seems I firmly know where I stand.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I am glad to see that my hunch that I had been unlucky was proven true. I was the 1,897th least lucky LLama of the season. But I did finally catch a break during the last four MDs of the season, and finished 3-0-1 during that stretch.

I finished 19th of 30 in my rundle, so I won't be relegated. But I tied for the most CAA in my rundle and had my worst defensive season since my rookie season--while finishing 12th in TCA and 8th in TMP in my rundle.

As I figured I would, I did set my personal record for being lucky at 178th.

....oh, I didn't make that post. Some wonderful person calculates it every season:

9-8-8 record for a 12th-place finish -- my second-best finish in A Lyceum.

My ranking is 12,348th luckiest. My luck statistic was 0.12597. I'll have to read the first posts in the original thread at LL to see what all that means!

For the first time in my 29 seasons, I finished last. Set a new record for losses. So back to D I go. I did end on a positive note, winning my last two matches and getting my first ever Buckner win on MD25. And one of my wins kept the person I beat from being promoted.
