OSPL 2012-2013 EXPERT - Official Sign Up Post for October

Post by MahoningQuizBowler »

This is the sign-up sheet for the third round of the Online Skype Practice League (i.e. OSPL) for the 2012-2013 school year. This season is at the Expert level; the next Novice season will begin after Halloween. OSPL October will run for 4 weeks beginning on either Tuesday or Wednesday, October 9-10. There are four time slots available for matches this season, with all times Eastern: 8 PM Tuesday, 9 PM Tuesday, 8 PM Wednesday, 9 PM Wednesday. If you have scheduling requests, please include that in your sign-up.

If you have not already, please read the OSPL General Announcement post to learn about rules changes, particularly those regarding substitutions and timeliness of playing your scheduled matches.

Teams will be constructed once all players have been confirmed. The winner of this season will not be eligible to play OSPL again until the OSPL Expert Champions League in May. The prize for winning this season, aside from Champions League entry, is one free entry at a regional/state level History Bee run by NHBB (value: $15).

In honor of teams playing a man short, teams this season are named after soccer players who had a penchant for being dismissed...

Zidane Zanies (2006 World Cup Final, The Headbutt.)

Esther Sun
Krishna Bharathala

Cantona Crane Kickers (Eric Cantona, ex-Manchester United, kicked a fan in the stands during a match against Crystal Palace in 1995.)

Matthew Powers

Barton Brigade (Joey Barton was sent off in the final game of the 2011-2012 season against Manchester City, as well as two other times that season.)
Morgan Venkus
Dan Kim
Rohan Nag

Rooney Red Mist (Along with Beckham, the most red carded player for England.)
Jason Fern
Ian Torres
Oliver Ren

Matchnight 1: Rooney 135-55 Barton, Zidane 110-10 Cantona
Matchnight 2: Cantona 320-250 Rooney, Barton 565-5 Zidane
Matchnight 3: Cantona v Barton, 8 PM; Rooney v Zidane, 9 PM. De facto semifinal as all teams are 1-1.
Final: Wednesday, October 31, 9 PM.

This week, OSPL October - The Hunt for Real Packets continues on Wednesday. Barton v Zidane at 8 PM, followed by Rooney v Cantona at 9. All times Eastern. I will need to find a replacement reader, as I have to pick up my wife from the airport.

I can't make that time, is there any chance the matches could be switched or our match moved to Tuesday?

We can switch the order unless there's some objection. I'll give it until this time tomorrow for any objections to be made known.

The final has been rescheduled for tomorrow night at 8 PM Eastern. Zidane had the right to headbutt the opposition out of the tournament by forfeit, but chose not to. I look forward to reading for everyone involved tomorrow night.
