Your 11.25.20 Playpen

Thanksgiving, 2020.  I almost want to make an oxymoron joke here, but for the realization that I am in fact extremely grateful that my loved ones and close friends have made it through a difficult year so far.

So, take the time in the comments today to tell us all what you’re thankful for.

Congrats, BluffonDawg!

Meanwhile, with three weeks to go, there are ten folks within two points of first place in the seasonal race.

Your 11.18.20 Playpen

Between last night’s firing of Krebs, the shenanigans in Wayne County, Michigan, Rudy Giuliani’s stab at playing lawyer in Pennsylvania and the crazy shit going on in our state, the events of the last 48-72 hours have been hard to keep up with.

There’s been one common thread, though — Trump’s insistence that there’s been widescale voter fraud, without which he would have won re-election.

So, I thought we’d do something a little different with this week’s Playpen.

Feel free to opine on your take, or anything else that suits your fancy, in the comments.

Fabris Pool results, Week 11

With only a half slate this week, there was no tiebreaker, so we’ve got a logjam at the top, with a bunch of lossless finishers.

You’re all winners in my book.  Congrats!

The seasonal race remains very tight.

On to Week 12, as I wonder if I can make the number of cancelled games the tiebreaker…

Tired:  Republican operatives promoting a Kanye West run for President as a means of peeling votes away from Joe Biden.

Wired:

After all those years of voting Libertarian, this may be the first time I’ve witnessed the LP have a meaningful impact on the outcome of a presidential election.

Also, lest we forget, this.

And with that, the floor is yours.

Congrats to mwo.

The seasonal standings are proof that nobody knows what they’re doing this year.

Congrats to 3rd and Long Sprint Draw.

Meanwhile the seasonal race grows more congested, with three tied at the top.

And there are another eight within two points of the lead.  This one looks like it’ll be going on for a while.

With the election less than a week away, I thought I’d let everyone don their prognosticator hats and predict the outcomes.

One PSA — if you haven’t voted early, you might want to think about it.  My experience last week was impressive.  Plenty of folks working the polling site made for a smooth experience that took about ten minutes and I like the new machines that print a paper summary of your selections for you to review.

Anyway, have at it in the comments.
