Did the JOKERS hang on to their skinny lead? Or did the ASSASSINS sneak up from behind and give them the old shiv in the back? Or did the COBRAS strike from below? Or maybe just maybe, the GRILLERS turned up the heat? Or could it be that the RHINOS (gulp gulp) made a frantic last-week comeback to claim their 8th HARL title?
Well... it was a very close points race, for everyone except the eventual winner. Three teams were separated by less than 1.5 points! But the champs won comfortably.
So who won? The suspense is killing me dammit!
Cue the medieval fanfare music and send in the clowns! The 2008 HARL Championship wears pointy shoes and a silly hat, and hails from the Great White North region of Pennsylvania.
Hail hail to the 2008 Champs... the JOKERS!
The Final Playoff Standings were as follows:
- 45.32 = Jokers
- 35.40 = Grillers
- 32.18 = Cobras
- 32.08 = Rhinos
- 30.88 = Assassins
FOR NOW... Please join me in congratulating JACK SOLTIS and the JOKERS on their 1st ever HARL Championship!
Kudos to Joker Jack for a great season. It was well deserved.
Until we meet again.... Enjoy the MLB Playoffs... and GO PHILS!

- Assassins = 43.2 pts
- Grillers = 37.6 pts
- Cobras = 35.4 pts
- Rhinos = 31.1 pts
- Jokers = 29.8 pts
Pretty amazing to see the Assassins holding down the top-spot eh? In the history of the HARL Playoffs, no 5th Seed playoff team has ever managed to win the playoffs and secure the league championship. Dougie Fresh is doing his best to make history, that's for sure.
I'm also surprised to see the Jokers languishing in the basement. What gives? Is this really the same club that took 1st Place in the Regular Season standings after 22 weeks?
The Grillers offense nosedived big-time this week, while the Spitting Cobras slithered their way up the standings and crawled out of the basement. The Rhinos sort of held steady. With the sudden spate of key injuries to the Rhinos and Grillers, those two teams will be very hard pressed to win another championship this season.
There are still lots of really close categories stats-wise, so it's too early to make any surefire predictions as to who will reign victorious. The upstart Assassins are in the driver's seat, but I'm expecting the Cobras to make a 2nd-half playoff run and battle them hard for the title.
So buckle your seatbelts baseball fans, it's gonna be a wild finish!
