deadline.sunday.9th.january.11pm cet

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

explanation of the new look of the ranking


ranking.after.goldcoast.auckland
.......................................... 015.. 15
--------------------------------------------------
001(029) spec7er.............. (01/01/x).. 008 ..08
002(new) spartanchris......... (01/01/x).. 006 ..06
002(062) steve2005............ (01/01/x).. 006 ..06
002(014) Buitenzorg........... (01/01/x).. 006 ..06

first row: 015.. 15
015 = total amount of points possible this year so far
15 = amount of points possible this week
the player of the week is always orange = this week spec7er

(01/01/x) behind each player name
the first number shows how many times a player has entered this year
the second number means how many times he has earned points
the third number shows how many late entries a player has already used



008 = total amount of point
08 = points this week

the number in the folter is the ranking the player finished last years race





Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles

it would be boring - because the most players would pick the 2 topseeded players then

I know, I know - I was just joking - when I took a look at the lists none of those in Davenport's half seems to have the weapons to beat her if she's playing well and I already picked Myskina - that's why I made the comment
