Maybe I've missed it somewhere, but do we have any standings so far?

posted by jagsnumberone at 04:28 PM on May 27

I have an insurmountable lead. No need to show the standings, there's no point in it because I am sooo far in the lead.

The game hadn't started by 8:06pm, so I think that it should count.

Good point. That pregame was looooooooooooong.
