    Richard Branson has a deal, just for us.

    Or, we could return to the summit of Mt Washington's summit parking lot for a redux (in the great state of Cow Hampsha)?

    The question should be "What do we get Marty the Cat?" Answer is catnip, so maybe he will not steal and hide the puck next time.

    Can Jim Cantore be the announcer for the Futile Four?

    - No appreciable difference in outside temp (and it’s still a dry cold).
    - No appreciable difference in probable ticket sales vs our own hosted tournaments.
    - We often play at the Sullivan, so we know how to handle the deafening silence.
    - We are used to very long days and nights.
    - We are used to hosting games in a cold barren wasteland.
    - We are used to hearing teams whining about their travel difficulties and costs.
    - We are used to being far away from the nearest Olive Garden.
    - And if the Nanook Bear is allowed into space, what could possibly go wrong?
    I like this idea.

    Elon Musk needs to be approached. After all, if you can put a car in space you can put a bus there too.

    Plus there's the added benefit of said teams in this game never returning to Earth to soil another arena.

    Just called Elon. Says he can do it. But his conscience says everyone must come back, and that when HE'S ready to go, then playtime is over and everyone comes back.

    Gonna post an updated preseason poll soon. You probably will see more AH/WCHA teams in the mix... no changes at the top, though. RPI and UAA are still 1 and 2.

    When did this become mainstream and all? Last I knew, we were still looking for the 2012 participants.

    And any complaints about the way things are handled... can be fed through the slot in the wall over there.

    My assistant Fade has a similar slot in his office.

    Re: Bottom Feeders 2018-19: Just So You Know, They Really Suck

    Tournament locations thus far:

    Midwest: George Gipp Arena, Laurium, MI
    East: The summit of Mt. Washington, parking lot, New Hampshire?
    West: undecided, but looking at outdoor, barren wasteland ponds. Preferably in Alaska or western Canada. Point Barrow?
    South: If there were some way we could freeze what was destroyed by the red tide in Florida...

    Right now, I need locations for the West and the South, and a Futile Four location. I know some of you want Earth's Moon, but I won't play to Musk's demands.

    Was going through last year's thread, and you recommended Point Barrow last year... so I'll turn the question on you.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrow...Transportation The roads in Barrow are unpaved due to the permafrost, and no roads connect the city to the rest of Alaska.[

    Thanks, Ralph. Is there a pond outside Juneau, Anchorage, or Fairbanks we can occupy for one weekend?

    I want players asking "what kind of bum **** ****hole town is this?"
