I swear there was some dude named Peter who posted here, or somewhere, using the team name Biznitches. Someone even responded asking what a Biznitch was. But I can't find that exchange! Did I imagine that?


That's my brother. He is in our Football league.

Ticomaya, you really need to come out here for a fine example of educated women sounding like drunken sailors. <grin>

Re: The A2K Fantasy Olympics Beijing 2008
Foxfyre, this quote has move of it ...

Part D is the trickiest, but Jespah posted a Wikipedia link listing all the countries entered in the Olympics. You have to "scratch off" the countries in Categories A, B, and C, and then you're left with those to make you choices for D.

The Olympic Games in Beijing will start in a few weeks.
Perhaps a Fantasy Prediction Game will make them more fun.
We certainly had a lot on Athens 2004 and Torino 2006.

6 Simple Rules of the Game:

1. Every participant will choose a "team" of 15 national olympic teams (divided by gender in the case of the USA, China and Russia teams). The aggregate result of these national olympic teams will determine the winner, on the basis of 5 points for every gold medal, 3 points for every silver medal, and 1 point for every bronze medal.

2. The 15 national olympic teams must be chosen from 4 different pools, in which the nations have been divided according to their performance in Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004.

3. Each participant must choose 2 olympic teams from Group A, 3 olympic teams from Group B, 5 olympic teams from Group C and 5 olympic teams from Group D (with encompasses all nations not in any of the former groups).

4. Since the USA, China and Russia Olympic Teams get the most medals, they will be divided in USA Male, USA Female, China Male, China Female, Russia Male, Russia Female. Any medal won by a mixed duo or team (equestrian team medals, for example), will count for both male and female teams.

5. The medal count will be based on the OIC count. That is, collective medals count as one.

6. All participants must enter their predictions before 10:00 a.m August 8, US CST (which is about when the opening ceremony is over).

Prizes:

Winner: Virtual GOLD Medal, and congratulations from every one.
Runner Up: Virtual SILVER Medal.
Third Place: Virtual BRONZE Medal.

Groups:

Group A:

Australia
China Men
China Women
Germany
Russia Men

Group B:

Perhaps or perhaps not. I went on a last minute round of trolling for players. I still have a couple of invites floating around.

Took a look at Jespah's informative link.

Tico, there are no competitors from French Guiana.

There's Guyana alright, but that used to be English Guiana.

Is that a problem?

Okay ... let me go in a different direction and pick ... Serbia, instead.

Oh, can I still name my team something? My football team is the Night Owls and they can probably do balance beam and stuff.
