Time will still tell who’s going to win this thing, but it’s become relatively clear that it will be one of Klueh, Levinger, and Drange—at least one of whom will end this Bet with well over 100 points, and the requisite off-season bragging rights.
No such mystery with last place. Riley has averaged one game pick per postseason series, and despite some pretty solid bracket picks, just isn’t going to have the points to avoid the ignominious distinction of the only first-to-worst bettor in modern BCB play.
So, as it stands, Riley is destined to wear yet another horrible ballcap, likely just days after removing this year’s punishment cap (Bet followers will recall that last year Riley actually won BCBIII, but was handed down the severest form of Bet punishment for failing to provide last year’s official loser Benanav with a crown in a timely fashion.).
In my mind, there is only one possible Bet Crown this year, regardless of who wins the World Series.
Of course, with a relatively poor showing on my part this postseason, I can only influence from without, and hope that my compatriots nearer the top of the standings agree with me that, whatever the insignia, this is the cap design that must adorn Riley’s head for the next five-plus months.
I present, for your consideration, the New Era 59Fifty “Camo Swirl”:
