TX Live Week 1 Power Rankings
Rank - Team - Δ - Summary
1 - Finkick Odair - N/A
Another 'ship, another seasons starting at the top of the standings.
2 - The Tyrannical Tea Baggers - N/A
Picked up some key players that should be welcome additions, but there may be an adjustment period.
3 - Plan B - N/A
The next edition of $hit Circu$ is cracking the top 3 for the first time after going to the Capital final last season.
4 - FRESH BRU - N/A
Breakout performance in the Spring post-season where they knocked off the Teabaggers in the quarters, and they'll be looking to build on that for another run.
5 - Tight and Bright - N/A
Welcome back to the show! After several seasons off they've decided to quit mucking about with name changes and call it what it is: the one and only TNB.
6 - Large Hardon Collider - Girth - N/A
No idea what exactly to expect from this crew but with an infusion of talent from the Alcaballics they could definitely surprise people/
7- Large Hardon Collider - Length - N/A
Probably the most free agents I've ever put on a Capital team, but sheer gumption will likely win them a couple of games.
8 - TBD-Cumming Soon - N/A
Word on the street is that the leading candidate for actually naming this team is "Sit On My Base", which is my favorite punny name (if you have to have a punny name).
9 - At Least We're Having Fun - Girth - N/A
Stole a few up in capital, but not enough to avoid relegation. Should be immediate contenders in Music.
10 - Red Ball and V0dka -N/A
Barely avoided being bumped up to capital, and while their defense is reliably stalwart this crew seems to have trouble scoring runs and wins a lot of 1 run games. Still a threat in a theoretically weaker conference this season.
11 - Booooze on First! - N/A
Our top ranked team coming over from Wednesday, they'll be adjusting to bunting and may take a while to acclimate.
12 - Pitches be Trippin' - N/A
Scott has finally embraced the heritage of the team name after letting another team adopt it last season, and while they should be solid on paper they were ravaged by off-season injuries.
13 - Brown Guys and Friends - N/A
As of last season this team officially loosened up and decided to play the everyone wins game that features an active flip cup table and strong bar presence. Me likey.
14 - Do You Even Kick Bro? - N/A
Had to take a few free agents to make the squad happen this season, which just means I'm jealous of the people whose first CLUBWAKA experience will be on this always-fun team.
15 - PurpleSaurus Rex - N/A
The brand is back after a Keep WAKA Weird Weekend outing reinvigorated the dino lovefest. All the competitive players have jumped ship so this will likely be the total shitshow team of years past.
16 - Jacked to the Kicks - N/A
Another Wednesday transplant, I have little to know knowledge of their game but look forward to learning more!
17 - Kickin' Grass and Takin' Names - N/A
A new crew that has totally maxed out their roster with 26 players. Don't expect much in the early weeks until they learn the ropes, but I have high hopes for a team that likes to party.
18 - Sons of Pitches Kickin The Punt -N/A
My favorite and most reliably ranked team in the league.
