The big weekend has come and, as I type, almost went.  I’m sure a grand time was had by all at TudorCon14, and I can’t wait to hear all about it, learn about Tudor’s new products, and find out what will be next from Tudor.  Very exciting!

In the SCPC results this week you can certainly tell who is not in Philly.  Us poor shlubs may be at home, but we played some MEF all right.  Six of the week twenty-two’s sixteen games were completed on the 24th and 25th.  One of them, a win by Dre’s Colorado team, was played at the convention against Chris LeMay’s alma mater the LCHS Wildcats.  Overall it was a great week of solitaire MEF.

The pace of NMEFL slowed slightly this week..  Brian reported four games. USC defeated Oregon 24 – 7, UCLA was better than Stanford 23 – 16, Colorado took care of conference whipping boy Cal 27 – 20, and a Rainbow was seen over Arizona 24 – 16.  UCLA, now bowl eligible at 6 – 0, crept up to the number 3 ranking.  They are now just four points behind fellow NMEFL powerhouse from the Big House, Michigan.  Colorado is also now bowl eligible at 6 – 0 and cracked the top ten in this week’s ranking.  Brain also has the number 11 (USC), 13 (Washington), 14 (Hawaii), and 20 (Stanford) teams.  Cal at number 42 is now 1 – 4 and better get some game or they will become the first team eliminated from bowl contention in SCPC Season II.  Great stuff Brain!

Dream Season II had just one dream this week.  The 1989 49ers couldn’t recreate the dream finish known as ‘The Catch’ as they fell to the 1977 ‘Hail Mary’ dream finish club, the 1977 Dallas Cowboys, 24 – 21.

CAPanther Electric Football country experienced some foul weather this week giving Charles some extra time off from work.  He apparently enjoyed the respite playing eight solitiare MEF games.  The first four were the culmination of the Legends Tournament.  The next four were the beginning of the Legends II Tournament.

The Chargers earned a spot in the final four of the Legends tournament with a 21 – 10 win over Houston.  The Bills put an end to the Chargers’ season in the semi-final 28 – 14.  The Packers and Bears played in the other semi-final.  Green Bay advanced to face Buffalo in the final with a 24 – 21 win over Chicago.  In the Legends Tournament Championship Game the Packers doubled up the Bills 28 – 14.

The Legends II Tournament has a very cool set up in which the actual rankings from 1968 are being used to set the match-ups.  Each division will crown a winner via a bottom to top system.  Games started with the bottom two teams in the Capital Division.  Washington defeated Philadelphia 17 – 14.  Washington advanced to face division runner-up New York.  The Giants won 21 – 17 earning them the right to play Dallas for a spot in the next round.  Dallas’s defense was too strong as they defeated the Giants 14 – 3.  In the opening Coastal Division game the 49ers defeated Atlanta 27 – 21 in overtime.

All that CAPEF action created some movement in the rankings.  The Legends Champion Packers are sitting at #7, and are now 6 – 0 and bowl eligible.  The Bills are also top twenty at number sixteen and Charles’s Rams are 3 – 0 after winning the Angle Family Holiday Tournament back in December.  All three teams, the Packers, Bills, and Rams, are in the Legends II Tournament and will be moving up the rankings quickly if they can advance.  Awesome tournament concept Charles!

Dirty Bird Electric Football just keeps cranking out Atlanta Falcons wins.  This week it was the 1972 version of the Dirty Birds besting the 1987 St. Louis Cardinals 21 – 13.  The 2012 Falcons are ranked # 6 with a 7 – 1 record.  The win was the second for the ‘72 team who, along with the ‘80 team, are now 2 – 0.  I believe there is a Dirty Bird conspiracy forming in the South.  They are going to attempt to take over the entire SCPC with Dirty Birds in every bowl game.

MPANMMEFSL played the first of it’s semi-final playoff games.  The Northome Bears defeated the Plum Creek Pioneers 12 – 6.  Northome is now 3 – 1 in SCPC Season II play, 7 – 5 overall, and will face the winner of Grattan vs. Camp 53 in the final.

Finally, the Major Bowl Implications Solitaire League took the show on the road to TudorCon14.  Mantaraydre and Chris LeMay played a challenge game between Dre’s Colorado Buffalos and LeMays alma mater LCHS Wildcats.  Colorado won the game 14 – 7.  Dre’s Buffs are now 5 – 2 and ranked #11.

What a great week!
