Can anybody stop the Mayors? At 12-1, the 2012 Mayors are opening with a better record that the 2010 Mayors. There's just no stopping Zip-Nut and Rolf Korber! ...oh, wait.

Father 0, Son 1. Young Master Korber got to point his finger at dad again, earning Player of the Game in a solid 15-point win. Of course this season, they'll only get to play each other one more time on April 28th-- my birthday! Those dobermans better not be stingy with the gifts!

This could be the first time I've ever seen Jakub Lyška (Red Fox, G) win a game without hitting a single shot. Seriously, when rookie Jada Minucci (Siberian Husky, G) is making more of a difference from the reserves, you've gotta wonder why you're even in the game. Hey, at least Walter Robinson (Hyena, C) outplayed Erich Haber (Mink, C). Wait, what??

GAME OF THE NIGHT. I don't know what was better: watching Rocky Caracal (Lynx, G), Nohea Holokai (Orca, C) and Shane Rufus (Red Wolf, G) cackling on their way to a massive lead after 3 quarters-- or watching them put their tails between their legs when Rodger Umaechi (Husky, F) almost stole it all back single-handedly in the fourth. Apparently the only way to stop a husky is with a Malamute. Leah Barsky's (Alaskan Malamute, SF) buzzer-beater took the glow out of the Arctics coins they were passing out. Fang? You better start kissing that girl's footpaws.

 Teo Masalia


While everyone's staring slack-jawed at the Mayors, is anyone noticing how the Minutemen are destroying teams this year? And before you start barking over Vera La Tiérra (Red Vixen, G), Teo Masalia (Black Panther, G) and Lenny Hicks (Coydog, F), just look at the stats from Eleanor Rigby (Deer, G) and Leonard Mack (Fox, F/C). When you've got talent that good coming off your bench, it doesn't matter if Gordon Reilly (Moose, F/C) forgets how to play. You know Newark was missing Theodore Sanftner (Prairie Dog, G) tonight.

INJURY: Xavier Knutten (Squirrel, G/F) - Elbow, Out for 2 games

UPSET OF THE NIGHT. Just when you think nothing can stop the Ezra Rosenbaum (Lioness, G)/Xavier Knutten (Squirrel, G/F) one-two punch, along comes Monty Silverthorn (Pine Marten, G) to save the day. The 2008 #1 draft pick returns to his original team, doing his best Han Solo impersonation by flying in mid-season to steal away a big win from Spokane. And somewhere, otter writer K. M. Hirosaki's little ears perked up.

Of course, it helps when Zip-Nut gets screened so hard by big body Unknown FBA Player, he falls on his arm and twists his elbow. Good thing he can hire someone to gather nuts this winter.

Player of the Game: JTigerclaw (Tiger, G)

When you picked up your Gary Wells (Turtle, G) bobblehead coming into today's game, you had to wonder why they'd make a knick-knack of a guy who's sitting in reserves. The answer was clear when JTigerclaw (Tiger, G) tore up the court again, scoring at will in the first and last quarters. Aragon Fisher (Otter, G) sat down early to let Jeff Random (Pit Bull, G) get out some aggressions, but there was no way to stop the kitty assault. At least sitting on the bench gives you time to play with your doll, Captain Steady.

And that's a swish.
