Corny Clarence's Saturday Morning Cartoons are being preempted today to bring you edited highlights from Doc_Ad's comments in the last FIG thread, where he--like Dobber--was killing it! Before I present the good doctor's dramatic tale, let me give a belated birthday shoutout to bodokid, who turned 16 Thursday, and kudos to bagskate, who got off the schneid. Congrats to you both!
The D-Man Always Rings Twice
SCENE: Doc_Ad, Mrs_Ad and youngestkid_Ad have just been bantering at dinner over the night's picks, which were eventually Dobson, Palmieri and Wahlstrom.
And now to our story...
AT UBS: Dobber scores
Doc_Ad: Good thing I listened to the Mrs and not the youngest one. Mega points.
IowaIslesFan (offstage): Same here
AT UBS: Palms pots the Isles' second
Doc_Ad: I dunno about Mrs IowaIslesfan but Mrs_Ad thinks she’s Nostradamus over here. She also thinks she should get, like, bonus points for getting the second goal in the second spot and that if she gets a third goal in the third spot that there should be a special award for that named after her or that people should at least say 'hey, you pulled a Mrs_Ad.'
Someone needs to get Eric Hornick to review the FIG picks over the past years to see if it’s ever been done before.
And, yes, I’ve explained that only the first goal counts but that hasn’t stopped the conversation...
AT UBS: Tito nets the Isles' third
Doc_Ad: Beau … game over, Mrs_Ad.
Later that night...
Mrs_Ad: I did pretty good on my picks. Not great, but pretty good.
Doc: Jenn, it’s the first goal. Only the first goal. You literally can’t do better than you did.
Mrs_Ad: I don’t know about that … and don’t call me, Jenn.
Doc: Sorry. Trust me, Mrs_Ad, you got maximal points.
Mrs_Ad: Mmmmm… I dunno.
Great stuff, Doc!
