The Glum Affair vs The Gronk Affair - Bolt-01 Cup - Play-offs - Who cares!

Well after weeks of convoluted nonsense it will be a blessed relief to learn that for the final two spots in the finals we just have two straight knockouts today… yep simple as that. Don’t worry about how they got here, just know that whoever wins both of today’s ties has a place in the finals (the tourney proper). Simple as that, so I mean it when I say….

All you need to worry about which is your favourite between:

The Glum Affair - more info

Vs

The Gronk Affair - more info

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite of these two stories at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easy) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Saturday 11th September and the winner (I’ll count up who gets the most votes basically) gets one of the final two spots in the tourney proper

… there’s a spreadsheet to make following easier… if you fancy. If not, don’t worry just VOTE!!!!

I’ve tried to explain the play-offs here.

What on Earth is ALL of this?

Why on Tharg’s Earth head are we doing this?

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN!

Oh and my ‘More info’ links… well I don’t say how much more and they get pretty wonky at times!

What an affair not Glum but Gronk

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

Gronk Affair for me - Glum is good but its sophistication can't overcome the hit of nostalgia...

Gronk Affair...another tough one. But Gronks affair is more memorable, and I felt like Billy Glum never trusted Johnny the way he should.

Whoops meant to call time on this one this morning - just today to go so get any votes in.

For me - well its tricky I really love The Gronk Affair, but I think we have enough of those mid-classic period stories represented and I think

The Glum Affair

Just has a little bit more going on... not that it will make a difference!
