Welcome back to Casual Pro News, I am your host Jayadamo and today my special guest is Kurt Davey, owner of last seasons East runner up Granite Peak Grizzlies.

Kurt enters with intro music.

Jay: Welcome Mr. Davey, please tell us a bit about yourself.

Kurt: I'm a Old season one vet that really didn't build my first full season player until season 3. I live in a mountain town in Montana, which in my opinion is one of the best places to be. I've been working in the mining industry for the past 10 years and enjoy bowling, golfing, riding my Harley and GLB in my spare time.

Jay: In what season did you purchase your team and how did you decide on the name?

Kurt: Had to look this up.... season 62 is the answer, but it was originally a Farm team for the Santiago Benitos. Granite Peak is the highest mountain in Montana.

Jay: Granite seems to be getting better every season and looked like a real threat to win the whole league last season. How do you feel the team will do this season?

Kurt: We were playing pretty well towards the end of last season. Had some really good games versus SCK, but came up short for a variety of reasons, usually on the final drive of the game. I honestly think this season will be a repeat of the past couple. I would hope that we could win some more of these close games, but until I get rid of my crappy coordinator, we're probably stuck where we currently are.

Jay: What is your pre-season prediction for the championship game and the winner?

Kurt: West - is going to be brutal. 6 really good teams that will beat up on each other all season. Still got to lean towards Charlestown.

East - SCK is the only answer.

Championship - I'm going out on a limb and say Charlestown takes down SCK 27-24 with Sunder finding more time to game plan this season.

Jay: Is there anything else you would like to say before we go?

Kurt: Just that I'm pretty disappointed that I haven't been able to get the Grizzlies back into a championship game in quite a few seasons now. After winning 2 Golds early on, it's been a great challenge each and every season. This is and has been a great league to be a part of. Probably the second most competitive league in all of GLB. More Grizzlies are on the way so we're not going away anytime soon.

Jay: It was a pleasure talking to you, good luck to you and the Grizzlies this season.


Week 2 Recap:

Phrenzy vs Volunteers
Not a lot of offense in this one as the Phrenzy get their first Casual Pro win. Vols shut out Philly 13-0 in the first half but Philly returned the favor in the 2nd but tacked on the game deciding FG.
Prediction: Vols 23-21 Actual: Phrenzy 16-13

Game of the week
Chiefs vs Militia
Militia pull out the 1 point win on a last second 48 yard FG sending the Chiefs to a shocking 0-2 start to the season.
Prediction: Chiefs 27-20 Actual: Militia 20-19

Shoreline vs Nassau
Smalls throws another 4 INTs but still gets 400+ in the air and 5 TDs.
Prediction: Shoreline 45-28 Actual: Shoreline 46-24

SCK vs Chaos
The Kops defense slacked of and only managed to pick off 6 passes in the win.
Prediction: SCK 72-26 Actual: SCK 83-27

Ghost Creek vs CPU
In a surprisingly close ga.... nevermind I can't even act like this game was worth the time I am sending on it right now.
GCC 255-0 nailed it

River City vs Granite Peak
Ransom win on a 52 yard FG and earn some respect. Does any team lose more heart breakers than the Grizzlies?
Prediction: Grizzlies 34-20 Actual: Ransom 34-32

Week 3 Predictions:

Nassau Nightmare vs. Charlestown Chiefs
No chance the Chiefs start out 0-3 right? Right? I am not sure I am comfortable with my pick but the false hope that would set in for some of the West would be fun to watch before the Chiefs storm back into a top 2 seed.
Nightmare 25-24

Metal Militia vs. Philadelphia Phrenzy
I don't expect this to be high scoring and I am sure it will be close.
Militia 20-17

Hattgenstein Volunteers vs. Shoreline Big Gulp Kickers
Feels like every time I turn around we are playing FUShorline. The Vols offense has not been impressive this season and Shoreline can score 50 even with throwing 5 INTs.
Shoreline 58-21

Ghost Creek Cowboys vs. Steel City Kops
DEEEEEEEE JAAAAAAAY Khalid! All they do is win win win.....
Kops 66-23

Chaos On the farm vs. River City Ransom
Coming off a huge win the Ransom pick up another.
Ransom 31-20

Granite Peak Grizzlies
vs. Austin Longhorns
Grizzlies bounce back and destroy the Longhorns. The longhorns threaten to score at the last second to pull within 255-3 but miss the 89 yard FG by 74 yards.
GPG 255-0

That will do it for this edition, good luck in today's games and remember that if at first you don't succeed then skydiving is definitely not for you.

Was just talking with Seric about the depth of CasPro will be in a few seasons within another team forum.

PK and sunder have teams near plateau
KD and SKIN right behind them
FUShoreline guys, ahoda and Jandrews' SVS
Seric and Rocket City
and I'm unsure who's behind this group

If I missed someone, my apologizes. I may not know if you plan to bring a team to CasPro. I'm sure Ryan will stick around for a while.

If we can prod this guy, https://glb.warriorgeneral.com/game/forum_thread.pl?thread_id=5324988&page=1#50050076, CasPro would be a outstanding
