    This was a blast. We should do it more often.

    All right everyone. I need to get a few things done this evening. Have a great night.

    Let’s get this party started. We will be here until 8pm. Time to talk Kubb and US Championship.

        Short notice is probably not the best, but I figured I would give it a try.

          How do I get a picture for my image.

      Just got an email asking who we thought the favorite is for 2013. Great question. We would say both Team Knockerheads and Kubbsicles are even right now. Can either be beat? Sure, but you will have to bring you A+ game and hope for a slip from them. TK at the Loppet was overly impressive at 8 meters and Josh probably still has the advantage on Mark for the inkastare position. That being said, the young kids get it done and have no fear, not saying TK does. If they are both in the Final again, we would not be surprised and would enjoy the show.

      Got another question about sleepers. Remember, Leinenkubbels were the only team to beat Kubbsicles last year. They finished 3rd, and we think some teams might think that was a fluke. We don’t. Solid team with very underrated inkastare. Also, Dark Side of the Kubb seems to be upcoming along

        With kubbilicious Maximus and Von trappe family slingers. We say them, as we have played against them since the 2012 Championship and have seen them take some good teams far in a match. We would love to see another top Des Moines team or Twin Cities team come up as well. Heck, we would love to see more teams from all the clubs lie Appleton, Madison, etc.

        Then, we think Goofy Kubbers could make a very deep run this year. In one year, their inkastare Evan Fitzgerald has become what we think is a top 10, if not 5 or 6 in the country.

      Got an over/under on how many of last year’s quarter finalists will be playing on Sunday this year?

      • Eric Anderson 8:00 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        We will say five.

      • Eric Anderson 8:01 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        4.5 should make an interesting Vegas line.

      • Eric Anderson 8:04 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        We do think it is going to get a lot harder to get to Sunday. The average teams are getting better and the good teams, some are getting really good.

        Do you want to name them?

        • Chris Hodges 8:07 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          Not until I see the groups & brackets!!!

        • Chris Hodges 8:09 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          PK will run a few hundred thousand computer simulations and get back to you with the most likely results. :-)

        • Eric Anderson 8:12 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          Come on Mr. Hodges, Knockerheads, Kubbsicles, Tad Kubbler, I know you have those three, who are your two or more?

        • Garrick 8:14 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          Kubb Snipers & Ringers?

        • Eric Anderson 8:15 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          Kubb Snipers did not make it last year. T9.

        • Garrick 8:15 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          @swedenssons – thanks, I didn’t remember.

        • Chris Hodges 8:17 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          Kubb Snipers will have an uphill battle without the seeding, but I think they will make it this year. Any team Scott Forster drills for, and Leinies.

        • Chris Hodges 8:19 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          I think the Wolfpack has the talent to make it back too. How long has it been since they didn’t at least make the quarters?

        • Eric Anderson 8:21 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          We think that a lot of people will realize this year that a top 16 seed and top 8 even more so is vital. We love this game!!

        • bricker 8:21 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          Hey Guys: I’d like to see the Kubb Snipers in–mostly because of my personal history with them.

        • Chris Hodges 8:22 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          But obviously I can’t pick all of these teams if they will be meeting each other late Saturday! Can’t wait until the live draw – Kubbnation chatter goes off the charts as soon as the groups drop.

        • bricker 8:23 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          But I also think that the game has enough room for a dark horse, a freak, an accident…skill is critical but there is more than just skill happening. With so many good teams it comes down to a few tosses. Anything can happen.

        • Eric Anderson 8:27 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink

          Wolfpack 2010 didn’t make it. Hard not to see five make it back. Love to see a new team come from far away make a run to Sunday. That would be awesome.

        We are curious on how many of the Top 16 will come back.

  • Eric Anderson 7:06 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink  

    See you in 30 minutes…

     
  • Eric Anderson 6:36 pm on February 16, 2013 Permalink  

    The U.S. Championship will be live here at 7:30pm to answer any Kubb or US Championship questions. We will be here for 30 minutes. See you in an hour.
