Deeger's Dogs Owner DJay Andersen Wins 2019 Jim Cummings Cup; Commissioner Issues Statement

With apologies for not updating the website since the end of the World Series, but allow us to quickly congratulate Deeger's Dogs Owner DJ Andersen for winning the Whole Shabang this year. I mean, really, that was a heck of a season. We can't announce all the money winners right now — Sunday's more likely — but big props to DJ, who will scrape $813 out of the pot and get a free $100 entry fee into next year's league.

To hold everyone over, we've heard from Rube Furrow, our commissioner, who recently issued a statement to the league. We happily share his message below …

As we shut the barn door on yet another stellar season at Santa Lechuga Power League, I would like to thank all team owners for making this yet another great experience. Note that I said I would like to thank them, but alas it's hard to think that this Major League Baseball season can be deemed a "great experience" when the season, which started with such promise and hope, ends in a World Series involving both the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros. I mean, really, who gives a rooster's patoot about either of those teams?

To be honest (and I'm speaking only for myself), I'd much rather have seen the dreaded Los Angeles Dodgers squared off against the dreaded New York Yankees. At least then I could have rooted against both teams instead of watching this series with utter ambivalence. The Nats? The 'Stros? Who cares?

Anyway, thanks for playing and congratulations to those SLPL team ownership groups who managed to eke out some winnings from the year. And we're sorry that we don't have Participation Ribbons to distribute to those of you who didn't win.

If you are a winner, please
contact me as quickly as possible to arrange how you'd like your winnings sent. I'm happy to send a check or to post a Paypal. If you don't care one way or the other, that actually helps me. Either way I need your information. If you prefer check, send me your proper address. If you want it by Paypal, send me your email address. If either way is okay, send both.

Also, let me know if you'd like us to set aside $100 from your winnings to secure your participation in next year's SLPL.

And let's hope that next season brings us a World Series with real teams.
