SPBL Round #4… Fight

Last round tomorrow in Tallinn and what a setup it is. Our league team is fighting for second place overall as Fieldfighters is sure to win Finnish Championship. It has been a even year except for top position and three teams are still fighting for the podium positions. I know whatever happens, our guys will party with the FF guys until morning. It has been great to see a team rise through the divisions to take the cup home. Congrats to the guys already, it’s good to be the king!

Div 1 team on the other hand is ready to take the highest podium for second time this year and first time over all. This can be achieved by ending the tournament in higher place than Ässä Creditor from Pori.

Few players are missing from our teams, with league team’s quarterback Sami Turunen is tending his broken leg after almost completing a beautiful frontside ollie. He is probably the most frustrated guy in Finland tomorrow. We will miss him but our lineup is sure to be strong enough to survive this.

Finnish league has been under a tougher management (run by teams) this year, after second round couple of teams were put under threat of a fine because of unsportsmanlike behaviour. After third round one div.1. team was dropped to last position as the mgmt saw that they broke rules regarding using upper division players. It’s going to be fun to see if some team will go all rogue like in the final tourney.

Liveblog/feed will not be around this time, as both teams are playing at the same time tomorrow and the normal operator (c’est moi) is home looking after his very pregnant wife. It’s unfortunate, but it is what it is.
