A Turk’s Best Friend

Man can have his dog; all Turkey needs is the Western Triple. A game-long Triple last Wednesday at the Red Lion in Lincoln Square helped three-time defending Weasel of the Year Brandon Fogel secure a shared board-top and reclaim his familiar spot atop the league. Fogel has only played in three games this season but has at least shared the board-top in all of them. 

Game No. 387 ended by time limit after the Fall 1906 turn in the following center counts:

Austria (Bryan Pravel): 0; 0.000 points.
England (Dan Perlman): 9; 31.641 points.
France (Tyler Lee): 7; 19.141 points.
Germany (Cori Neslund): 6; 14.063 points.
Italy (Brian MacWilliams): 0; 0.000 points.
Russia (Pete Wesoloski): 3; 3.516 points.
Turkey (Brandon Fogel): 9; 31.641 points.

Lee was playing his first game with the Weasels. He was recruited by Wesoloski, who himself had just joined the club for the game last month at the Chicago Cultural Center. Neslund also joined the club at that March game, so we’re getting some new blood, which is great. In fact, five of the seven players are eligible for the Rookie of the Year award. The only vets were Pravel and Fogel, who are starting to look like Middle Guardsmen. Anyway, the growth is great to see.

Even better to see would be a Red Wednesday with two boards. Maybe next month?

Okay, players, what happened?

    Great to see all the new players doing well and supporting each other. Would love to hear all about it – hope to see you all at Moot in a couple weeks.

    Congrats to Dan on his first Weasel board top. Also, congrats to Brandon on his first ever board top with Turkey, as crazy as that is to believe.
