    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages.

    Welcome to the main event of the forum.

    Nineteen teams entered this tournament, representing thirteen forums. Now, we are down to two.

    One team will take home the championship, and the other will join the ranks of the Buffalo Bills.

    Will it be The RICHARDSONS (FORMERLY TEAM 4), who represent YJCC? The team that fought through the qualifying match, and have now single-handendly gotten their forum to above .500?

    Or, will it be Hooper's Heroes, who represent the Role Playing Forums? Another team that fought through the qualifying match, and have quietly, without the fanfare and obnoxious banners of The RICHARDSONS marched to the final?

    We're about to find out.

    For the thousands (and I know that includes you Tunic) reading this thread live, and the millions who will follow along one day when it's recorded in the great feats of history ...

    Let's get r-r-r-ready to r-r-r-r-r-r-r-ummmmmmmbbbbllllleeeee!

    Introducing first, fighting out of Your Jedi Council Community. They have a record of four wins and zero losses. A combined points scored total of one-thousand, five-hundred thirty-five. They are the owners of one of only two shutout victories in the tournament. They have devoured the Pancakes and Waffles forum, canceled the Amphitheatre, vetoed the Senate, and stopped the cloning of Emperor Jello.

    They are ...

    The Sultans of Spam!
    The Princes of Ping Pong!
    The Last Remaining Hope of Your Jedi Council Community

    The captain, the fish you can't fry, the GSA who needs no capital letters ... halibut
    The second in command, the stalwart of the blue and white, the master of running around in a panic ... Everton
    The midfielder, the mysterious big brother, the keeper of the scented scroll ... epic
    The attacker, the game clincher, and the greatest google image searcher of all time ... OBIWAN-JR
    In goal, the ultra-reliable, the always dependable, and the go-to man on US-sports questions ... George_Roper

    And, their opponents, fighting out of the Role Playing Forums. They, too, have a record of four wins and zero losses. A combined points scored total of one-thousand, six-hundred sixty-eight. They are the only team to defeat two teams from the same forum. They have twice rewritten the book on Fan Fiction. They have sent the videogames forum back to the 8-bit era. And, they have sewn the ass back on Cade Skywalker's chaps.

    They are ...

    The Silent Assassins
    The Comeback Kids!
    The Users of Polite and Eye-Friendly Banners

    And now, introducing the members of Hooper's Heroes ...

    The captain, the one who answers by hitting the nail on the head, the man sporting MC Hammer pants ... Imperial_Hammer
    The second-in-command, the sultry sith of doom, rarely seen but always remembered ... darth_nemisis
    The glue of the team, batting third, always providing clutch answers, and yes, she is a girl ... DarthXan318
    The former moddess, the empress of the Role Playing Kingdom, and the team's inspiration ... NaboosPrincess
    And, finally, the pinch-hitter who never strikes out, the JCC-RPF crossover ... MASTERPRENN

    And now ... the host of Forum Feud ... DarthIntegral


    Thank you, thank you! It's been a long, wonderful, and enjoyable journey. But, we've reached the final. One of you will remind me of Cleveland sports teams, and the other will be crowned champion.

    Let's get this game going!

    Hammer, halibut, come out and shake hands. As team captain, you'll be getting the first question. And, it should be known, I picked this one out to be the opening question of the final when the game started.

    As a point of reference, this survey was done in 1997.

    We asked 100 Americans.

    The top eight answers are on the board.

    1. __________
    2. __________
    3. __________
    4. __________
    5. __________
    6. __________
    7. __________
    8. __________

    And ... the question has been PMed to the captains. Good luck!

    Just got a PM saying "Forum Feud Question", expecting something alluded to above. I didn't realise we'd actually started, so unfortunately I ran around in a panic, did an Everton, and sent in a stupid answer. :(

    In other news, let the spamfest commence

    Yeah ... I ran out of time for one of my ideas for the finals, so those PMs that I thought may go out never did. Sorry about that hal.

    But, hey, at least you can now start on your march to 1000 posts.

    Don't worry halibut, it's always about the final round.

    Anyway reaching 1000 posts will be difficult.

    Who has to be last out of the tunnel? Everton or epic? I always forget.

    EDIT: also, nice first three posts.

    Where, on the above chart, do you think your answer will figure, Marky-Mark?

    Are we talking 'knock it out the park' territory, or more like 'run to first base'...?

    We're talking "it won't be up there as I didn't realise what year the survey was taken" kind of pitch
