I was just looking at the standings and thinking it was still possible to come in first when I realized that's only because every team has competed every week -- this is the first time that has ever happened. This has been really competitive. There was never a week in which I thought I would definitely win the H2H before the games started.

I am definitely looking forward to buying at the meetup before the playoff game. Is anyone willing to make the decision about where and when that will be once we know which stadium the game will be played at?

I needed a comeback against you last week. You were winning after the first game of the dgw
I know, was super disappointed when I lost :C
...Well, next season I'll do better! Last fall I did very well, hopefully this time I can do well again!

No wooden spoon for Shwafta next season, you'll see!

I'll be out of town for the conference semis so I'll probably miss the official beer night, but I'm happy to cover the tab at a second gathering the next week if we make the conference finals.

The final Fall Season standings are in:

1st Place FredMertz FredMertz Haak a Loogie
2nd Place is me with Maximium Moralez
3rd Place is dummyrun dummyrun with Keaton Parks & Rec

Additional Congrats to FredMertz FredMertz for winning the $50 prize in Fans of NYCFC. He beat me by 8 points to win that.

A special shout out goes to LionNYC LionNYC for having the bad luck to lead the league in "points against"

FredMertz FredMertz and I are buying before the game on the 23rd. Details TBD.

I thought I came in 2nd in the NYCFC fan league. No $50 for me. The winner was nearly 70 points ahead.

He came in Top 10 overall and gets a prize for that, so you are the winner. I won the same backdoor way about 3 years ago.

I still have to pay out the on the Pigeon Cup, in part because it was complicated and drawn out, and in part because I just like holding on to the money. Now I want to confirm:

FredMertz FredMertz $75 Pigeon Cup + $140 Fall winner = $215
dummyrun dummyrun $75 Pigeon Cup + $20 Third Place Fall league = $95
Sabo Sabo $40 Second Place Fall League

That should leave me still holding $50 that Fred and dummy agreed to forego from the Pigeon Cup and donate to the beer get together, assuming we can figure out a place to meet near Citi Field, as it is looking. I will just bring the $50 to that event and apply it to the bar tab, and if for some reason I cannot make it, transfer it to someone who is there. If we fail to meet up at all, I will send another $25 each to Messrs. Mertz and Run.

Does everyone involved agree with the above?

Easiest place to meet would be Mikkeler Brewery in the corner of Citi Field. Either there or McFaddens.

I wouldn’t be able to make a bar pre-game with junior, but please enjoy the spoils.

That's the correct payout if FredMertz FredMertz and dummyrun dummyrun are fine with the Pigeon Cup.

FredMertz FredMertz we are open to suggestions where Jr can be. Tailgate might be a better option than excluding you.

It is decided. "NYCFC Forums H2H Annual PreFirst Home Playoff Game with Drinks for all Players Courtesy of League Winners" will be at Mikkeler Brewery Wednesday before the game.

What time should I aim to get there?

In case you don't know or don't remember what I look like I will be wearing a light blue NYCFC Villa jersey and will have a blue NYCFC scarf.

We need those NYCFC Forum hats, scarves, and gear, so we can identify each other!
I myself will probably only arrive near 6-6:30, but I know others will arrive earlier.

Leaguemates, my plan is to leave Troy so that I hit the parking lot at Citifield at 5 which means 5 plus whatever traffic google maps doesn't anticipate and then head straight to Mikkeler Brewery . I have a grey beard and will be wearing my forums scarf and will be one of the 50 people wearing a blue Villa jersey.

Been looking forward to this all year.

Would love to see anyone from the Forums, past or present.

Have fun guys. Sorry I won't be able to make the pre-game gathering as I will have my 7 year old in tow.

I'm not certain if I'll be able to make it there early enough for this, but will try my best to.
