Brawl, Brittania!

Tournament Game Reports

If there's a pattern to these things--and let's be honest, there probably is--then one of the Kevin O'Kell(e)ys ought to be feeling pretty good about his chances in next year's Bar Room Brawl Championship game. (Of course, as the old joke goes, you can't win without buying a ticket.)

Last year's inaugural Brawl Championship went to Jim O'Kelley. Last night at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square, Chris Kelly kept the title in the sort-of family by storming to a five-center lead as England. In fact, Kelly's dominance was so convincing that the players voted to concede the Brawl Star title with more than an hour of play left on the clock.

The Weekly Weasel -- Week of Dec. 15

The Weekly Weasel
Read on for the latest news from the Weasels.

Thirteen Stabbers Stabbing
The Red Lion was decked with boughs of holly and broken promises last week for our third Red Wednesday event. Fortunately, the partridge in a pear tree was followed by a couple of walk-ups, which allowed us to field a second board. Yay!

The event featured three more new faces, plus an old one in an unfamiliar beard (Aash Anand). Check out the summary.

Thirteen stabbers stabbing

WCW Club Season 2015 Games

Our true love was kind to us last night at the Red Lion. She gave us two walk-ups, running the count to 13 players, enough for our first two-board session since Opening Night. Now our allies, on the other hand, holiday season or not, they were being bitches.

Alternate reality

Tournament Game Reports

If we established anything at yesterday's Weasel Royale club championship game, it's that there are only three acceptable reasons for missing the event: Cancer, Rugby and Acts of God. All three played a part in shaping the lineup for this year's Royale, as did some pretty lame excuses.

The field featured only four of the top seven, along with three alternates, including one who was an alternate for an alternate. We tapped Brad Harrington (the seventh alternate!) to play at around 10:45 a.m. when second alternate Mike Morrison discovered that a tree had fallen on his car during Friday's storm. Host and War Weasel Dan Burgess calmly diverted fourth alternate Don Glass to the west side of the city to retrieve Harrington. They arrived at Dan's at 12:06, and the selection ceremony started as soon as they took off their jackets.
