2008 Pig Dinner Power Rankings

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

It's Pig Dinner Weekend again so at the request of my assbag fraternity brothers I've put together another rankings going into the weekend. It appears as if Fors will not be suiting up for the tournament but rather will be not 100% intoxicated and yelling at people over nothing. Regardless his absence opens it up for another team to actually win this year.

1. The Mighty Putz: Jamie Carlson (1999), Mike Dorval (2002), Ryan Fournier (2000), Dana Griffin (2000)

This team should probably be monitored the entire tournament as mass cheating is most likely committed. If you're under 5 foot 6 you can't be completely trustworthy. See Conidi for a reference...

2. Liquor in the front, Poker in the rear: Ron Wright (2002), Matt Siska (2002), Jeff Costa (2002), Bunz (2002)

I feel as if they post a good score each year, but never quite remember. So they shall be placed at the same spot as last year. 2.

3. The Immortal 4: Justin Billings (2005), Daniel "Cotton" Schwab (2005), Matt Simone (2005), Jimbo Loiselle (2005)

Fuck it. These are my god damn rankings and I'm putting lofty expectations on Cotton to actually show up this weekend and for myself to be not 100% drunk and useless. No expectations will be put on Bones.

4. Conor Casey Memorial Foursome: Karl Gebhardt (2004), Gary Pedro (2004), Brian Abcunas (2004), Brian Pitreau (2002)

Pitreau has a lot of cheating to make up for. I just don't foresee him lying and saying that he has won the long drive or that the squad is 4 under better than what they actually finished.

5. 3/4 Busch Light Brigade: Andrew Frascotti (2006), Jared Deck (2006), Jeff Perras (2006), John Tehrani (2006)

Mills is apparently too lazy to join the rest of his Busch Light Brigade and instead was replaced by Deck. What kind of excuse is running 26 miles anyway, and for Country Music in the miserable state of Tennessee. I expect a return to action next year.

6. Chipper 'n' Dales: Brent Shannon (2007), Ryan DeChristoforo (2006), Drew Forrest (2006), Misael Diaz (Undergrad)

I've heard the whole Misael was a golf pro rumor before and right now I'm playing it as 2/3s truth and 1/3 Barret story. So I'm skeptical.

7. Team Ramrod: Justin Wheeler (2003), Matt Clark (2003), Paul Elliott (2003), Shawn Walker (2004)

I can't imagine Wheeler contributing much to the squad but Clarky, Elliot and Walker should be able to keep the team in contention.

8. pig 'n putt: Jon Rich (2001), Paul O'Brien (2001), Jay Cardinal (2001), Curtis Britton (2002)

A lot of time it seems like the older guys are good at golf. After a few Pig Dinner tournaments I've come to realize that these guys are not. Not good at all.

9. Golf Any Style: Wes Salomon (2005), John Courtney (2005), Toby Maglione (2005), Eric Sands (2005)

The imagery of Wes Salomon swinging a golf once is enough to burn a person's retinas. Forcing yourself to watch Wes over the course of 18 holes good lead to perminant loss of vision.

10. Clubs and Shrubs: Brian McDonough (2007), Bryan Bussone (2007), Nate Birmingham (2006), Ryan Hollister (2007)

For some strange reason I get the sense that the height of their mental state may hinder their play over the back 9.

11. The Shanksville Duffs: Lou Frascotti (1979),Joe Frascotti (Undergrad), Joe Renaud (2007), Greg Pawlowski (Undergrad)

At least this year sweet lou doesn't have to worry about some stories which are completely false. He just has to worry about whether any of the young guys he's saddled with can hit a golf ball without it going into the woods.

12. The Whalers: Joe Leverone (Undergrad), Ryan Sebastian (Undergrad), Justin Thomas (Undergrad), Michael Pagonis (Undergrad)

They're undergrads so they probably suck. Not as much as Grutt but pretty bad.

13. The Fraternity of Mu Tau: Joseph Gruttadauria (2005), Anthony Smith (2005), Sean Mahoney (2005), Rick Adams (2005)

Last year I picked them last and they didn't finish last, despite zero birdies during 18 holes of play. So this year they get a one spot reprieve. Perhaps they can actually get one birdie. Or perhaps they will make up for last year and finish in last. We shall see.

14. Aaron Vanney Memorial Foursome: Chris Hamel (2004), Sean Coughlin (2004), Derek Ransom (2005), Wes Chapman V (2004)

I'm sorry Coughlin but I had to move you guys to last this year. The squad moved from 2 people high and 2 bad golfers to three people high and 1 bad golfer. Probably not a step in the right direction.... but atleast you don't have Grutt on your team.

Unknown Soldiers

The rest of the bunch of golfers that I probably know limited about.

Sons of Armand: Mike Spencer (2001), Dan Erickson (2001), Greg Halloran (2000), Mike Young (2001)

Other Predictions & Facts

The Team with the lamest name is Golf Any Style which came out of Wes Swallowman's only I think it's funny mind.

Pierce's bald dome covered by a hat will be highly missed. As will the missing of the drunk cheating Connor Casey of old, as the sober non hole marker destroyer version of Connor last year doesn't really count.

Tehrani will have the least hetero-sexual outfit. Which I'd imagine would include pink pants.

Bones will start saying things that don't make any sense by hole 4.

The ideal 4-some would certainly include the absent Ziggy.

The Jets will draft someone I hate (i.e. Vernon Gholston) and I will shank my shot immediately following.

I will not snap my driver in half this year.

Cotton will start giggling by the back 9.

Grutt will not win our Par 3 bet this year as I will not accept betting on the 100 foot par 3 with a green the size of the Indian Ocean.

Do Undergrads exist? All signs point to no.

Best Team Name: 4 Guys 1 Cup

As I see it, it definitey is a 4team race.
1.) The Mighty Putz being the clear favorites. Solid all around. They have a pair of 5'-6" golfers and a pair of 6'-6" golfers. That means good length off of the tee and a good short game.

2.) Liqour Her in the Front has some solid older guys who played on the golf team, but they have been working 60 hour a week jobs for the past 7 years so their games have to have gone down hill. Plus they dont have Forzy carrying them around the course that he is the Pro at.

3.) The Immortal 4 has youth and Jimbo who has the ability to drink a beer a hole while keeping his head not completly tilted/rested on his shoulder. Their is some internal turmoil though. Does chemistry matter? We will find out Saturday. Also, Jimbo is flying back from Australia Friday night. Will he even make it to the course? Will Simone get so pissed off that he is rendered useless like the Jets playoff hopes for the next several years? Will Cotton snap out of his poor play at the last several Pig Dinners that have him on the ropes with his teammates? Will I shit the bed after telling Cotton this is his last chance? Or, do Cotton and myself return to form and play like when we were the legendary 1, 2 punch of the WPI Golf Team? Do Jimbo and Simone hit a decent shot between the 2 of them off the tee and into the green allowing Cotton and I to let it rip off of the tee and throw darts at the green? Probably not, but we do have a pencil with an eraser on it.

4.) Team Ramrod: Agree Wheeler is garbage. Clarky is better than average. Elliot has the ugliest shoes ever and plays all of the time. Walker can more than hold his own. They can put together a decent score.

After these 4 teams, all the other teams are garbage. Thanks for paying the entrance fee.

I'm calling Chipper 'n' Dales the dark horse...

I don't need to cheat, I just drop bombs of the teebox.

I'd say this is no contest this year with the Mighty Putz taking home the prize, but the key to Fournier and Dana's scores the past few years has been a willingness to blatantly fabricate scores. This year they have Jamie on their team who actually has morals. This could be a problem for the big dudes.

However, the competition is the weakest overall that we have seen in some time. I think single digits under par wins it this year. I'm still waiting for my prize from winning the monsoon tourney of 2006.

Sorry I can't be there this year to dominate the long drive again (especially with Forzy out of the race) and watch him wrap a 9 iron around Simone's head while Simone delcares innocence.

There will be a beer cart on the course so Jim will begin talking his non-sense at the 2nd hole and Cotton will be giggling well before the last 9.
