To answer your question CR, I took a look at my stats and the fiirst thing that jumped to my attention is that I will have been playing WIS for 9 years as of Oct. 7th.  Doesn't seem that long. 

Anyway, for about half that time I've basically only been playing three leagues, two specifically I've been in for a while... a prog and futurekid6's twist league... and the third varied, but has been a prog for the last 5 seasons.  So, from 194 total teams, I have 103 playoff appearances (53%)... of those playoff teams 34 made the finals (33%)... and of the final teams 15 (44%) won the WS and 2 (13.3%) won the ToC (neither of the ToC winners were prog teams).

I feel like I don't make the playoffs as much as other people - but at least when I do - I usually find success.

I have made at least 50 appearances in the TOC.  And I've never even gotten to the final 4.

I've only entered the TOC with progressive teams and have only made it past the 1st round a handful of times

Never a significant English word - it's in dictionaries from the 18th century, but not a single appearance in any known non-dictionary literature, correspondence, essays, etc.
Yes, that was my point - how odd there used to be a word in English that fell into disuse (or never was in common use), only to be replaced by a word from German.

Which surprisingly few people on here actually know...  I feel like I've known it since I was pretty young, but it showed up on Two and a Half Men (albeit mispronounced) near the end of the Charlie Sheen era, when that show was the most popular comedy on TV.  That should have raised awareness.

"schadenfreude"-I heard Lisa Simpson tell Homer he was guilty of this on one of the earlier "Simpson's" episodes.  That's about the exent of my literary knowledge.

in my 23 appearances I'm 39-70 - I average 4.73 games per tournament!

I've it past the 1st round 4 times in the TOC. I won once, and the other three were 2nd round exits.

Won one tournament (in the first year I played this site), and have had three teams reach the final four.

Now that I play mostly progs, I'm getting used to seeing this on my Team Center page:


Tournament of Champion Teams
Team League W-L Status
Cleveland Screaming Eagles MLBT1500 0-3 32/32
New York Yaks MLBT1514 0-3 32/32

9/29/2012 2:13 PM
Tournament of Champion Teams
Team League W-L Status
Montreal Expos XIV MLBT1510 0-0 23/32
Philadelphia Colonials XII MLBT1495 1-3 32/32


I was shocked when I got the 1!
