While waiting for the all-powerful administrative overlord Samwalkertron to fix a few glitches with this site, I guess I'll write a little somthing.

In regards to the Mustaches/G.P.A. game:
I believe that we can reasonably call it the greatest intramural game of all time. While the final results were ultimately disappointing, it was a terrific show. I mean, c'mon, look at this list of accomplishments: A last second win, with 4 points in 17 seconds to seal the deal; A huge crowd, including many fine hecklers (Josh Ellens, I'm looking at you.); player introductions and a halftime giveaway (congratulations to Shannon on winning the season tickets); and we got the whole thing on tape. Although the Showstoppers OT game last year was epic, I believe this game easily overtook it in overall spectacle.

Any visitors, please leave a comment. I realize many people will need to get a blogger account, but you might as well. It's inevitable. Soon everyone on earth will have a blog, it will become lame, and everyone will stop. The Mustache blog has only to wait out this dark period and it will be the only blog on the web when blogs get popular again.

Say, does anyone else see a parallel between the typical blogger's documentation of his/her humdrum, boring existence and Addison's diarist's arrogant declaration that his empty life is worthy of remeberance? I'm just saying is all.

Keep up the Hope Mustache Nation. Dont let our string of losses cause distrust or want to quit the team. Just keep your head up and commit a flagrant foul or two to get back at the bastards.

Some people are now afraid to go hunting with Dick Cheney, but Dick Cheney has always been afraid to killing with Chuck Norris

Thanks for the support, royalewithcheese. Just for future reference, who are you?

I'd say jordan, but the chuck norris reference seems more like anderson, or even johnson.

I'd have to agree with the greatest intramural game ever statement.

Finally, Intramural can breach the final frontier... the Warrior Update.

I believe I can call that statement blasphemy.

The greatest intramural games ever were the Showstoppers' win over Justin Gruenwald's team sophomore year (a game won on a half-court buzzer beater over the top team in the league) and the Showstoppers' win over Tommy Morgan's team junior year (a game won on a three pointer with under five seconds left against a team where all but one player was 6'2"+, 210+, and really f***ing good at basketball). Respect your elders, Maxwell. The Showstoppers are still the team that defines intramural basketball.

Johnny V, I am disappointed. You, of all people need to realize what happened against Tommy Morgan's team was something special, something which cannot be recreated or beaten. (I'll forgive you for not acknowledging what happened sophomore year in what was the greatest finish of all time,in overtime, and in the playoffs no less.) I am sure this Mustache/GPA game was very close, and very entertaining, but the setting wasn't there. There were no playoff implications, and there was no David vs. Goliath aspect to it. Let us let cooler heads prevail before we go and make these brash statements.

Also, Josh Ellens as a heckler? Maybe he was intimidating, I don't know. But give me Clinton Strother as a heckler any day of the week.

Kid C speaks the truth. Have you ever watched a single showstoppers game ever??? Well I played in ever single one of them. I still try my best to remember them in full form, but for the most part they are beyond words. PK's clutch shot walking off the court with his hand in the air looking like MJ in the Finals. PK's shot was so huge, the game next to us stopped so they could bask in the glory of the moment. Never has a game, just stopped because of another game. There was Anderson taking the game winning shot with my assist against Tommy Mo's team with the crowd going crazy. That moment was like red vines and mr pibb.... CRAZY DELICOUS. Dont forget Hook laying down the slam off mike "peja" stoe"jakovic"'s back. That one was just sick. Dudes head was above the rim, Carter style. Lofty took ten points off the board and we still beat them by 50 some. No Manly mustaches game will ever come close to a showstopper gamePERIOD In IM ball the showstoppers were the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. The manly mustaches could possilbe take over GPA on the list of greatest games, but the GPA vs. showstoppers was an ESPN instant classic so that would be hard. Not to mention with the re-match coming soon to a court near you, it will be next to impossible.

One last thing, before you make another claim let me list the greatest teams ever, since I doubt you have known all of them.
#1 showstoppers
#2 the franchise
#3 Gruenwald's team
#4 the strokers
#5 GPA (pity vote)

when you can battle with the likes of these teams then give yourself a pat on the back, but lets not get ahead of ourselves there guys, you got some work to do by the sounds of it.

best of luck the rest of your season though, give GPA a fight if you face them again.

Joe makes a good point. The Franchise was basically a precursor to the Showstoppers. Without them, we wouldn't have been the phenomenon we were. I think its kind of unfortunate that teams nowadays dont have the immediate competition that we had. These sophomore teams can waltz into the league and face mediocre competion. There is no harsh reality that they've stepped into something great. Do you know who the first team that the Showstoppers ever played was? Chris Klabo's team. Yeah, him. Back then, it was either toughen up or get out of the league. But still, we brought the fans and the excitement which had never been there before.

P.S. There still is some talent and interest in the league, which is good. Best of luck in maintaining the competitivenes.

I agree with them.

You forget. We got beat by Grunewald's team by 80 points sophomore year. And TMorgans and everyone else. We did win 2 games though.
