        WELL, JUST LIKE THE SINGER JERRY REED SAID...... "SON..... WHEN YOU'RE HOT.... YOU'RE HOT!!"........ SO HERE'S THE PICTURE....,  YOU'RE IN 2ND PLACE.... AND YOU'RE TRYING TO GAIN GROUND ON YOUR OPPONENT WHO IS IN 1ST PLACE.  YOU ARE HOT AND WIN 13 OF 15 GAMES AT HOME DURING BLOCK # 4...... YOU GOTTA BE THINKING THAT I'M CLIMBING UP IN THE STANDINGS......BUT THEN YOU FIND OUT THAT YOUR OPPONENT - - - - THE 1st PLACE TEAM - - - -  ALSO GOES 13-2 AT HOME.... AS CRAZY AS IT SEEMS AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO BELIEVE.... THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED DURING BLOCK # 4... WILL POLUMBO AND HIS MICHIGAN MARVELS DIDN'T LOSE GROUND... BUT DIDN'T GAIN GROUND... AS ANDREW PHELPS AND HIS WASHINGTON SENATORS CONTINUE TO "BEAT ALL COMERS" AT HOME. THE SENATORS ARE A BLISTERING 47-7 FOR THE SEASON AT HOME!!! ............ AND NOW, LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THE OTHER END OF THE THERMOMETER......... AS THE ROCK BAND FOREIGNER SAID.... "YOU'RE   AS   COLD   AS   ICE"..... DESCRIBES THE LONG ISLAND HOUNDS (BOB MORELLI) IN THE EASTERN DIVISION.... WHO WENT 0-15...... YOU READ THAT RIGHT...... THAT'S ZERO.... ZIPPO... ZILCH... NADA....... THEY WERE OUT-SCORED  127 to 46  AND OUT-HIT 185 to 100... THERE WERE 2 SHUTOUTS.... THERE STILL ARE A LOT OF CLOSE RACES FOR DIVISION TITLES.... ONLY 3 1/2 GAMES SEPERATE 3 TEAMS... KONA  COAST IS IN 1st PLACE... AND SEATTLE AND CONCORD ARE TIED FOR 2nd PLACE..... THE RACE FOR 1st PLACE IS STILL REAL TIGHT IN THE GREAT LAKES DIVISION.... THE SURPRISING McHENRY CYBERMEN ARE HANGING ONTO THE LEAD... WITH THE CHICAGO MOB TRYING TO PUT THE "HIT" ON THEM.... ONLY 3 1/2 BEHIND... WITH GOTHAM CITY TRAILING BY JUST 4 1/2 GAMES..... DON'T COUNT OUT THE 2nd PLACE TEAMS IN THE OTHER DIVISIONS.... EVERYONE STILL HAS A CHANCE FOR THE LEAD.... OR A WILD-CARD BERTH.... WE'RE ABOUT HALFWAY THROUGH THE SEASON.... BUT A LOT OF CRAZY THINGS CAN STILL HAPPEN.... STAY TUNED!!........ 

NOW IN OUR 51st CONSECUTIVE YEAR!

Our League started in March 1971 as a "straight team" replay (League members managed  one of the actual Major League teams).  Jeff Fleischman is the League Commissioner, taking over direction and naming the League  G.U.S.S.O.M.O. two months into the beginning of the first season. The original Commissioner, (who was in the Air Force at the time), informed all the Original League members that he was being transferred from Northern California to Germany and that he would not be able to continue running the League. He sent all the League material (paperwork and statistics... minus, of course, the League treasury/dues) to Jeff... who re-organized and cleaned things up, and has been running the League ever since.
