Give him his 20 points though, Bob (but not before Saturday).

So Me & Fellow Bobbysoxers in joint 19th are doing OK? :D

If Brian were to have his 20 point we'd be up here. There just over10 points difference between 1 & 20!
It's anyone game! :o

Blame JP. Or kick her when you see her. Or both. I'd go for both.

Congrats on 1st place - Dogg and Pig. I was away and just checked out the scores this afternoon. I'm doing well but not as good as you guys.

the Brisbane Tavoli club gig on August 27 might cause a catastrophic shift in the ratings.

If anybody wants to join the Pool for this tour (or wants to change teams), shoot me a PM! We're down a member or two since last tour and we're scrambling to find some people.

The pool seems almost pointless these last few years with the never changing setlists but there's gotta be some people out there still interested!

I still get the ghost of a rush when I read "The 2017 'Remember The Gospel Years' U.S. Fall Tour starts in 2 days, 7 hours, 49 minutes and 33 seconds!" I'm interested, but for now i like my team members - albeit down to three playing members the last two tours! That makes it even less fun as you're never in the running

I tied for first place on the last leg (my alias over there is Zeppyfish). I still enjoy making the picks and following the lists, at least until Bob settles into a groove and stops tweaking (which is often after the 4th or 5th show of the tour).

Looks like I'm in 2nd place so far this time around. Lots of Joker songs were played in Funner and Vegas, so it seems like there should have been more high scores.

Unless no one cares and I'm just talking to myself...

Oh you took Summer Days for your joker you are very very smart

Amazing how many songs have migrated to the joker list due to their being set aside the last 6 or so years - arguably, songs like Thunder on the Mountain that were played so often so recently should never have been allowed to balloon to 20 points. It's his 22nd most played song ever, ffs

I agree with you, and I’m the one who creates the game. Admittedly I was short on time for this tour due to other obligations, but I still can’t believe I kept Summer Days in the Joker category and dropped Thunder down there. Planning this tour’s game just didn’t work well with my regular work schedule.

I picked Every Grain Of Sand for my joker on a whim. How did I miss Summer Days being there?

You really have to be in the right frame of mind to go through that oong a list with a fine font comb

You're correct there. I usually make it to about the H's and then I start skimming. This happened a couple of tours ago with Scarlet Town too.

I've picked Tryin' To Get To Heaven several times in the wild card slot but this time I went with If You Ever Go To Houston. Whoops
