I'm gonna try to make this quick because I'm dead guy tired rn and want to try to get a lil napadoodle doo in before the big match, but if you missed #DozVsTheDozen 36 on Tuesday, don't worry, you didn't miss shit! I put up a nine-spot but dug myself too deep of a hole—credit to Team Minihane for a great match.
Maybe it was a trap game because I've been thinking about this match all week. After ducking multiple opponents, (1) Team Chicago (current crown holders) faces quite possibly their biggest trivia rivals (5) Experts in Battle for the Crown V.
IMO, it's kind of a joke that Chicago was even crown-battle eligible at 3-3, averaging under 10 PPG, but I'm not here to shit on my future co-workers and friends. It's just weird to see a (1) in front of a team that's 4-3, but should they beat the Experts tonight after sneaking by the Honkers (and tying me; the match was on Christmas Eve-eve, so I must've forgotten to post it to Youtube, but I'll upload it once I rewatch) for the Crown in Match 165, then I'll have no choice but to truly respect Chicago as Crown holders. For now, call me Shania Twain because their resume don't impress me much.
If these odds were available on an actual sportsbook, I'd empty my savings account and put in on Experts. I looooove that value.
I love The Dozen and would cut off both my baby toes with safety scissors for a chance to help out as a paid Barstool employee, but I just can't get too excited for the Crown when a mid-major currently holds it. Maybe that's just the tiredness talking because I am pumped for this match; I just don't need the gimmick, although I credit the folks behind The Dozen for trying to spice things up. I'm just terrified to be critical of BSS when I've put all my eggs in the #HireDozo basket!
Okay, I need to close my eyes for an hour. #DozVsTheDozen airs LIVE on my Instagram (@dozonlife) at 7:05 PM; that's www.instagram.com/dozonlife. I can't wait to see you in the comment section!
