MB7 Previews: Thursday

I’ve got some good news and some bad news.  The bad news is this is our last day of videos.  It’s been a good week, thanks to everyone for participating.  The good news is our favorite day of the year is in TWO DAYS!  Woohoo!  We still have some spots available, so bring some friends with you to the Old Orchard on Saturday.

The first draft of the OFFICIAL MB7 BRACKETS are available.  The brackets will change a little bit Saturday morning based on who else shows up and who punks us by bailing at the last minute.  Download these brackets and keep them handy while watching the videos throughout the week.

MB7 Previews: Sun | Mon | Tues | Wed | Thurs

Osters and Frushour have been full of a lot of hot air this week, but now they have a chance to totally redeem themselves.  A & A tell us all their final 16 players left standing in the afternoon, and then work their way down through the quarters, semis, finals and then give us a championship pick.  It should be noted that the Commish has only picked the correct winner once (MB3), and Osters has been shutout. So you can pretty much take these predictions with a grain of salt.

Abby noticed some unanswered questions this week…and she was dying to get back on camera.

I don’t know if you noticed, but that “Tree House” wasn’t built for adults.  And shooting the videos was no simple chore.  We thought we’d give you a glimpse of just how tight those quarters were.


Our videographer this week was six-year-old Abby Frushour, and she did a great job (and learned some new words and terms to boot…oops).  Note: Emily wants me to add that this video was taken post-shower, right before bed — Abby is usually a lot cuter.

    I have mixed emotions from the videos today.

  2. Salmon says:

    HaHa…the Finals is going to be like the movie ‘Twins’…that’s right…Little DeVito coming to whoop some ass.

  3. Salmon says:

    Commish going down that slide, I believe, is what it looks like to watch #9 squeeze into his shirts. Scary.

  4. #9 says:

    You better check yourself Webster.

  5. Mb evangelist says:

    2 things…#1- Osters has competition for MB8 videos, because Abby was phenomenal. #2- Was the Commish channeling his inner-Hagen when he chose that’s size shirt?

    My finals prediction is Hagen & Commish in a battle of tiny tees.

  6. Mb evangelist says:

    And by that’s, I mean “that”

  7. Andi says:

    Abby may be the next Hannah Storm. Pretty sure she reads at a higher level than me, and is (obviously) far more articulate. Days are numbered.

  8. #9 says:

    My fearless sleeper prediction:
    Jo Kidle
    Joe Wenzel

    Top Four out: (those that will exit way to early)
    Jim Wenzel

  9. Elaine Dameron says:

    I just got my first good laugh of the day when I read #9’s parting shot from last night. I hate that I didn’t make plans to come this year so that I could join in the frivolity of the witty repartee. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the videos (well, all but one) and wish to thank you Commish for your recognition of Sean. I truly hope that he and Dawn (pseudo-daughter) blaze through their competition to glory!! Oh, and by the way, your daughters are adorable.

  10. #9 says:

    Elaine. I offer my protection to Shawn if he wants it.

  11. Elaine Dameron says:

    #9, I’ll rest easy tonight knowing you’ve got his back!! You’re a good man!

  12. Andi says:

    These threads are completely ridiculous. I love it.

  13. #9 says:

    Sean will more than likely come home a better man because of it. So in advance, you’re welcome.

  14. Mb evangelist says:

    #9- if becoming a better man requires skin-tight, too small tees….then I’m not so sure.

  15. #9 says:

    You just threw away the best thing that ever happened to you.

  16. Mb evangelist says:

    No, I just don’t think they make shirts small enough to be tight on me….

  17. the DJ's wife says:

    Abby’s request has been noted and handled by the wife…

  18. Dan K says:

    I’m confused. There are no videos today. What am I supposed to do at work? I feel so…lost.

  19. Elaine Dameron says:

    #9 forget about MB Evangelist slamming your form-fitting t’s. You just do what you told the Mama you would do! I’m depending you.

  20. #9 says:

    Congrats to the commish. That was an onslaught today. Also thanks to Kevin Gunns for allowing me to make a spectacle of our match today. That 12 monkeys was worth making an ass out of myself.
