Well, here they are, the return of the JGT Power Rankings.
1. Duane’s World (Black Sheep). A 12-point win at the Invitational, followed by a blowout victory at the Black Sheep on Wednesday. On a roll.
2. Jesters of Tortuga (CTH/Bards). Fall by double digits at Invitational, then do so again at Bards on Thursday. Like the Phils, you have to wonder if age is becoming a factor. This just isn’t the team we saw in 2008.
3. The Jams (Rendezvous). 2 wins in past 4 weeks, plus a 3rd place finish at Invitational, puts the Jams in the #3 spot.
4. Always Finishes 4th (North Star). Appropriately enough, two straight wins after two straight 2nd place finishes lands these guys right where they feel most comfortable.
5. Underground Bard (City Tap House). Win with a 118 at City Tap House last week, then leads after 4 rounds at the JGTSpI. It’s been a train wreck ever since.
6. Specific Jawns (Bards). Haven’t been around all that much lately, but burst back onto the scene with an 11-point win over the Jesters of Tortuga at Bards this past week.
7.Electric Mayhem. (Rendezvous) 2 wins in the past 3 weeks puts them in the Top 20 for the first time ever.
8. Exhausted Nihilists (O’Neals). An impressive 4th place finish at Invitational puts them in the Top 10, but this team at full strength certainly has the potential to be a Top 5 team.
9. Sidecardigans (Sidecar). Rebound from a devastating last place finish at the Invitational to take first place the very next night. You gotta like that from a young team. Short term memories.
10. L. Ron Hubbard’s Diabetics (Industry). Two wins in the past three weeks gets them in at the tail end of the Top 10. This is a former #1 team. Can they climb the charts again?
11. We Got Nothin’ (O’Neals)
12. Jitney Spears (Black Sheep)
13. No-Names (Industry)
14. Blazing Sea Nuggets (Black Sheep)
15. Mysterious Mr. Mapother (O’Neals)
