The Enigmatic Foreign Coaching Genius (EFCOG!) was finally taken out, appropriately, by the ABMOD. Williams piled up an impressive two-thirds of the vote as he cruised into the penultimate round, where he'll face off with the Bearded Bombardier. Olsen fell behind early to Chest Rockwell (of internet commenting fame) before staging a typically furious comeback. Chest did mount a late rally, but couldn't overcome Olsen's momentum.
Preki has been taking no prisoners on his march through the cup, winning by obscene margins, the latest by a nearly 50% margin over Curt Onalfo. His cause may get a further boost now that it looks like Chivas will be moving in another direction. His opponent had to be decided in Twitter "extra time" (what, you don't follow me on Twitter?!?), as Marco Etcheverry and John Spencer ended regulation voting-time with nothing between them. Even the runoff election looked headed for a stalemate, but in the end Etcheverry advanced by the most slender of margins. One vote. Dramatic stuff!
