The Schicklgrubber Grab vs. The Gronk Affair - Bolt-01 Cup - Group 3 Game 1

So after so much faffling in the over complex qualifying we get down to the top end action as the last 16 face-off and today we have 2 games from Group 3, you spotting the pattern yet? As ever though...

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

The Schicklgruber Grab - 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 easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Saturday 18th September and the winner (I’ll count up who gets the most votes basically) gets 3 points towards qualifying… huh…

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

I’ve tried to explain the finals 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!

The Schicklgrubber Grab

Hmm. Weerd Brothers and Gronks versus Nazis and Stixes. I think Shicklgruber Grab takes this one.

Another tough one to call, but I'm sticking with The Gronk Affair. I'm not a big fan of Gronks but the villains in this are both horrific and hilarious.
You're a dark horse, Boots.

Hmm, this is a tough one. I think I'll go with the Gronk Affair, mostly because the time travel storylines don't work as well for me as the ones set in Johnny's own time. The Shicklgrubber Grab definitely was the best of those though.

The Schicklgruber Grab has it all - Johnny and Wulf, bounty hunting, Stixes, Nazis, Hitler, a time job and Der Sternhammer Silencer! I'm not sure there is a better Stront story, I love this one.

One day, one day
So you rilly rilly rilly
need to vote
One day, one day...

So I will and hmmm this is a closer vote than I was anticipating. Completely fair ro say The Gronk Affair is a superb story but Schicklgrubber Grab seems to have a bit of everything and so many iconic moments and on that basis:

Schicklgrubber Grab

VOTING CLOSED

OOHHHHH was not expecting this. Grab stormed through qualifying seeming without breaking into a sweat. The Gronk Affair than to fight, fight, fight to get to the finals. Taking, literally, the longest possible route to this group stage and taking the very last slot available. So this tie would be straight forward right... well no it was anything but and in the end, despite the very different routes this was went to... neither
