Will Nine Lives Win Out Over Lucky 13?

Will Nine Lives Win Out Over Lucky 13?

Today I have set myself what might be a difficult challenge…I am going to write a blog post here without once mentioning SurfAholics Alpha. OK well it seems like I have failed that challenge already so let’s move on.

When I logged into CTP this morning the thing which really caught my eye was the ongoing battle between Lucky 13 and those Crazy Cats People.

Here is what I mean…

Cats and Lucky 13 battle

Lucky 13 and Cats battle

I noticed that Lucky 13 was in the lead but by the narrowest of margins as the top screengrab shows…so I refreshed the page and found that the cats had woken up (cats spend 80 per cent of their time sleeping, is something I once read) and took the lead, again by the narrowest of margins.

Lucky 13 team leader Tom Wacker said:

“It’s a genuine fight.  Crazy Cats punches, and we try to counter.  We punch and they try to counter. Fortunately, Lucky 13 is also better in the clinch.”

Cats leader Nathan LaPlante said:

“Of course we can beat Tom’s team.”

There is lots of activity in the Competitive League too where there is an even closer margin between 13th placed Stinkin Badge Owners and 14th placed the BEGINNERS and TEAM Members as they are separated by just 3,300 points.

    Of course the young Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali) had no chance against a rough customer like Sonny Liston.

    We will see at 12m Sunday. I know how I am betting…

  8. Raj G says:

    Its good that the fight is on Internet and not face-2-face!

    Otherwise, Tom would have come to blows,
    Nathan would have unleashed Cats with claws… lol

    Very healthy but tough competitions at every position.

    Cheers to all team!

    It’s going to be a long fight, but remember one thing:
    “We never sleep”

    Go Lucky13

  15. Lynn M says:

    The only day I’m concerned with is Sundays and how things stand on that day. And I’m really mainly concerned with the long term. Lucky 13 is in it for the long haul, I’m not sure the others can keep up their current state of activity forever. We’ll see.

  16. Charlotte Ericson says:

    Another interesting week it is. I trust my team and know that everyone will do what they can. Go Lucky 13.

  17. Sig says:

    Indeed an interesting battle…dont we just love a Good F I G H T!

  18. John Brewer says:

    We have said it once, we will say it again – Lucky 13 is “In it to win it!”
    We are ready to fight the fight for the long haul!
    Are those Crazy Cats up for it?! You know how fickle cats can be!

    The “team that never sleeps” will conquer in the end!

    Go Lucky 13!!!

  19. Stephen Whittle says:

    Put ’em up! Go Lucky 13!

  20. I’m very happy for the teams in the lead; good job as always Matt and watch our for those claws they do hurt.
    However, that being said , one day things will start to settle out and then watch out for the lurkers like Team Kore4, just biding our time people when we make our move even the cats will stop purring and the SurfAholics will be slurfin down Jack Daniels wondering what happened!

  21. Debb Lafevre says:

    Meow……sharping those claws and staying away from the katnip.
    Plan on clawing to the top…..lol Good luck to all the teams

  22. Frank says:

  27. it was said “””Surfaholics Alpha can chill out “””
    Nooo way …we get you !

  28. PURRRRRRFECT! We are back to second place… Come on Crazy Cats Team we can WIN this thing!… Love being on this team because It ROCKS!

  29. Virginia Herron says:

  30. Patricia Dean says:

    Fun to watch the competition, from a distance. Have fun teams!!

  31. Cindy Schellenberg says:

    Good job all teams!

    Maybe the cats need some catnip to calm down….

  32. Howard Fullmer says:

    Go lucky 13 chase them cats away

  33. Good luck to all the teams. It’s a long way to Sunday. 🙂

  34. Tom’s mention of Muhammad Ali and the fight analogy intrigued me, so….

    I googled “Muhammad Ali quotes about cats”, and this is what came up (an actual quote):

    “I’m a fighter. I believe in the eye-for-an-eye business. I’m no cheek turner. I got no respect for a man who won’t hit back. You kill my dog, you better hide your cat.”


    (The things you find on Google! 😀 )

  35. Selya Rollins says:

    I love a little healthy competition

  36. mark says:

    It’s a great race for being mid-week!!!!! Keep going going going And keep surfing!!!!

  37. Karen Kuty says:

    Good luck to all the teams! Better luck to mine (lol)!

  38. Myra P says:

    I love a good battle; good luck to all the teams.

    Great comment Ellen!

  39. As I write this it looks like the Cats are after the Surfaholics-Alpha and leaving Lucky13 in their wake!

  40. Ken Wolff says:

    Cats may not be sleeping when they are fighting but they do sleep a lot…good luck on staying awake…and a lot of elevators go right past the 13th floor with out stopping. It is a secret but we have a plan! Our team is Waking Up Now actually we are moving up now…call it what you want but I am betting on the secret plan that will get us up to the top! You have to be a member to find out what that secret plan is and rummer has it there may be an opening or two. Keep up the good work on the leading teams we like the challenge of getting better every day. We will come up to you. don’t get tired and fall back to us. 🙂

  41. I agree. What an exciting battle! Go teams Go!

  42. Anton Parvov says:

    Good job all teams!
