Didn't Machuki win the whole BCB Cup one year too?

As a friend said to another player on the basketball court one day when I was making shots, "He's not that good, really."

Ah, so only six matches in the final, and three picks.
I was assuming the format would be same as previous cups.

Which was also top 2.

Top 3 would mean another 30 tracks and I couldn't do that to Moddie...

:lol:

But I just checked and Rock and Roll and Loud and MOBO cups were top 3 from two groups (or maybe top two from three groups, but all with 15 match final. They were the ones I was referring to. I don't do the Prog Prem.

Got to doff my cap to Fonz there, he really does stand alone on this site when it comes to uniqueness of taste. I'd be properly proud of that, whereas I'm just a mid-table nothing after all.

I am genuinely surprised at how badly I did there!

For the most part the stuff on offer was rubbish pastiche/parody stuff that noone would listen to out of choice; the stuff I posted was all stuff I like/listen to.

I wouldn't say there's anything unique about my taste, but I think a lot of the folks here 'play' these cups seriously and actuallybtry to win! :shock:
Heyyyy!
