Who says it's lonely at the top?

The 2nd win for both these guys!

The Premier League called asking how our Wilmington Knights of Columbus title race can be so damn close at the midpoint of the season and theirs which ends in May appears to already be a foregone conclusion.  I had hoped that the championship would come down to the final night; however, glancing at the standings, the coronation may depend on the final toss!  With three weeks to play, we have a new leader and the top three are separated by a mere 0.15 of a point.  And with Kevin Lowry having a tournament in hand, things are actually a little tighter at the top than they appear.  Speaking of Lowry, kudos for introducing the football squares meets craps version of the 4-Bagger challenge.  It's innovative and I like that!

So how did the top of our table get so crowded?  This past Thursday, luck or unluck of the draw depending on your perspective, paired several of our league leaders.  For the second consecutive week, Rich Queen and Pat Collett lined up across from each other.  But, this time, they had to settle for second and Pat did not leave behind his "Fart T-Shirt" (yes, these are my players).  Just behind them, Derek and Pigeon landed on the third place perch.  And your winners...Lance Madden and Kevin Lowry!

The skills challenge featured some new faces on the podium with Jim Nocella taking top honors followed by Derek Fraioli.  Lance added a familiar name to the list by finishing third.

I am very pleased with the league thus far and apparently I am not the only one.  The Knights of Columbus have informed me that they love hosting us and will provide FREE pizza next week!  Oh, and it's about that time we start talking about Season 2...
