Analisa Rudy & Eric Mott, a tandem of another sort, share sole possession of the second spot (134 points) while loner Michael "Trasher" Trzinski, just like the River Falls Wildcats, simply won't go away. He fought off a furious rally by headmaster John Stephens to remain in medal position with 133 points.
It should be noted that Stephens (131 points) is playing hurt this round, having ripped apart his knee earlier in the week avoiding a puddle that threatened to stain his Kenneth Cole loafers. He is listed as day-to-day in the latest injury report. The Big Ice wishes him well.
Inspired by DeLuca's defeat, an inspired Oliver Albrecht made a big leap in the standings, joining Peter Rudy in the 5th place slot (130 points) while--look at this--Chip "Toes" Krauss made a move too, joining rookie Todd Zwiaska (who scored a beautiful 5-hole goal in another heartbreaker loss for the Blues Monday night) in the 6th place slot with 129 points a piece.
Things tighten up in the standings considerably after that and we can expect to see some new names in the Top Ten this weekend, especially if Notre Dame Academy continues to mow down the competition faster than your Commissioner dispatched his waffle this morning at the Americinn's free breakfast.
On the other end of the leaderboard, I think we can no longer ignore the elephant in the room. And that elephant is Erik Moe who wallows in 22nd place with an embarrassing 110 points, barely ahead of rookies like child actor-turned-latex salesman Jed "Vern Savage" Resnik who just don't know any better . Tony Landgraf (83 points!) is proving again that his sterling 2007 performance was a fluke and, let's be honest, Doug Green (96 points) is a stunning disappointment as well.
What happened, guys? A curious Commissioner wants to know.
