I would like to apologise on behalf of Steve and myself for our intransigence in bringing you the final scores.
Firstly, adverse weather conditions affected Steve, and to his horror he awoke to a find a two-foot snow drift against the door of the TCC Communications Centre shed. By a fluke of nature, he was actually in possession of The Pencil at that time, so returned to his kitchen. Thinking on his feet and using his trusty Swiss-Army knife, he managed to whittle The Pencil down to an Action Man™ sized shovel. 27 hours of manual labour later the snow drift was clear and Steve was able to gain access to the shed.
Secondly, I'm just down the road from the European Space Agency (ESA), and I don't know what has been posted on HL/TCC regarding The Pen, but a bunch of very official looking people turned up on my door-step yesterday, and commandeered said pen. Something about using it to wake up Philae?
Anyway, Steve finally managed to get a message to me by his favourite carrier-pigeon. I guess he must have cut himself when whittling at the kitchen table as it was written in blood. At first viewing, it just looked like a crazy, Jackson Pollack-esque, kid's painting and told me nothing.
However, my wife is a kindergarten teacher so she was able to quickly scan it, send it to one of her favourite mothers, and little Suy (3-year old Korean girl) was able to translate.
Unfortunately, my only option to respond to Steve was via Semaphore. I do have a Europe-wide underground network of Semaphorites (<--- Is that even a word?) who have risen to the cause and hopfully my response will be arriving soon in Hungary.
We have a discrepancy in the numbers, so please be patient.
But as always, me and Steve are doing our best, for yous, in difficult circumstances.
The pigeon has arrived, having braved a blizzard and a rather beligerent Millhouse. In all honesty, Millhouse was more narked that the pigeon got fed before him. So, a week both Arsenal's goalie and the ref at the Chelski game would rather forget. An emphatic home win from the Eleven Imaginary Boys ends the Industrial Groove Machine's good fortune. The scores on the doors are as follows: The Cure 545 - 491 The Sisters
GW differential +54 The Cure
Overall differential now +161 The Sisters
The Yellow Jersey remains with Johnny Rev 7.0's FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921.
And this week's Big Shout Out goes to GOD's Charlotte's Carnage with a decent 67 points.
Well played both of you
Although the next game is on the 10th, there is the Asian Cup and African Cup of Nations now in effect. So some of your players might be unavailable for a month And if you're wondering where that draft is coming from, a transfer window is open too.
Once again, thanks to our guests to the Stadium Of Faith and great job everyone
