Re: In Regards to Mark Pinsky and Ajay Sumanth

Just to play devil's advocate about Ajay, but the WOKE field was notably much more competitive than the BHSAT field. Ajay played in the top bracket of WOKE, which was incredibly competitive. The teams in there were averaging at least seven powers a game, with some teams averaging over 10! Ajay also ...

Re: DC Metro Area Discussion - 2019-2020

As the season reaches 2/3 of the way through, a lot has changed in the DC area. The class of 2023 is pretty promising and I'd like to highlight them as well as shill for a couple of my teammates.
