Season 14 concluded with a Pyle held just before Thanksgiving, as we shift our season to coincide with the calendar year. This was also the first Pyle to be held at our favorite watering hole, the Red Lion. This year's edition saw Clockwork Chris Kelly complete his late charge up the standings to claim his first Weasel of the Year. Chris topped his last three boards to claim the title. Cori Neslund won the Amanda Baumgartner Rookie of the Year award.
Here's how the games went down:
Brandon Fogel entered Season 13's final day of play with a tenuous hold on an unprecedented third straight Weasel of the Year title. His three closest pursuers also were playing at the Weasel Pyle, and any one of them could unseat him with a strong result. A poor showing by Fogel, thus hurting his sparkling leftover average, would make their jobs even easier. So the stakes were high.
But one does not win a Weasel of the Year title, let alone two in a row and a Royale championship to boot, by blanching in the face of high stakes.
