|If the third time is not the charm, then what pray tell, is the fourth time?|
It’s getting smaller each time. The deficit between the Hypebeasts and Yaletown in each of the three games they’ve played this season has gotten progressively less, though each time, Hype has walked away the winner.
22 to 14 to 7…by the predictive factor of quantum mathematics that they taught me at the Berkelee School of Music, tonight’s game should be a 1-point Hype win.
Proof: Hype beat Yale by 22 in game 1 and then 14 in game 2, meaning an 8-point makeup on Yale’s part.
Hype beat Yale by 14 in game 2 and then 7 in game 3, meaning a 7-point makeup on Yale’s part.
Therefore: Hype beat Yale by 7 in game 3 and thus should beat Yale by 1 because of a 6-point makeup on Yale’s part in game 4.
Hype's readying the broom.
8, 7, 6…at this rate, Yale should overtake Hype in their tenth game.
Folks, Yale ain’t got that kind of time. They're staring down the barrel of a clean sweep at the hands of the Hypebeasts this season.
Tonight, in the AL elimination semifinal, Yale needs to do it right here and now or their season is done. Their dreams of two-timing the chip will be swept away like snow off the New York City streets, amongst other things.
For Hype, another try at a perfect season is over, but the overarching goal remains the same: get Virgilio Borbo the title so that he can be the first ever tri-level DL champ.
They’ll have to do it without their driving force though.
Ian Yu, the beast behind their hype, has elected to take vacation a little too soon and will be missing in tonight’s action, as well as tomorrow’s final – should they get there.
That’s bad planning, but Yale won’t feel sorry for no one – and it’s not like Hype will be hurting for talent.
That Yale is even in the Final 3 right now is amazing given their horrid start to this season. They’d like nothing more than to have 3 more games to play since that’s how many they’ve got to win in order to take it all again (same as Hype.)
SK awaits in the wings, a likely heavy favorite over whoever wins tonight.
Howie and Leon will be ready to battle. They were born ready.
Eden may or may not be missing since this snowfall encourages his Canadian brain to play a game of rugby instead. He also may or may not bring shorts. He wasn’t born ready.
No Ian, snow, maybe Eden, maybe not, shorts, no shorts, this game will go on. And in the end, we’ll see if the math holds up.
