Sunday Cardinal Couple - The Bracket is Set

FGCL Bracket is Set

We didn't get our normal hype around NCAA basketball bracket reveals this year, so we'll take a little bit of joy in this one.  The FGCL regular season has concluded and the tournament bracket is set.  Most of the tournament will be played tomorrow, with only the championship game on Tuesday.

Jordyn Wolfe, Paige Schindler, and the rest of the Manatee Squeeze finished the regular season in 2nd place, behind the Myakka City RiverMocs.  It is a seven team tournament, so the RiverMocs will get the first round bye.  The Manatee Squeeze will start the first round tomorrow against Fast Pitch U.  Times are still to be determined.  The 2nd round challenge would be against either the Bradenton Slice, or the Pioneers.  In the other half of the bracket, the Bradenton Lynx will compete with Impact Softball 20 to see who gets to attempt to take down the RiverMocs.

Jordyn Wolfe did get selected for the Sun Division All-Start team, along with about half of the Manatee Squeeze team.  The Squeeze had the most representatives on the All-Star team with eight getting the nod, while the Bradenton Slice had seven selections.

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour

Technical difficulties prevented a live stream of the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour yesterday, but we
were able to record.  You can check it out below.

A full crew on board yesterday with myself, Paulie, Case and Jared

Topics included the latest on FGCL play, a rundown of some of the conference divisions concerning fall sports, and our typical summer Cardinal Couple quiz.  Paulie put us up against a tough one, but you'll be amazed at my performance in this one.

See if you can do better than us. Take the quiz. 



  1. Unbelievable. My Internet connection dropped while the upload was in progress.

    1. Time to get away from "dial up" Jeff. LOL

      I tanked in the quiz. I had a great baseball hitting percentage overall but it stunk for the quiz. .400.

  2. Tough quiz Paulie! I barely got a positive score.

    Good luck to Manatee in the playoffs. They have the bats and pitching to do it. Maybe that last win over the River Mocs will spur them on to winning the playoffs.

    How the mask mandate doing over on your side of the river? Floyd Country over here in Indiana hasn't called for it yet, our governor Holcomb, who was Pence's lt. governor before becoming governor, probably won't go with it state-wide, despite our case numbers. Holcomb is big time pro-Trump also.

    Another reason to move to Kentucky, I guess.

  3. I think I would have gotten a better score if I had not listened to the choices but just randomly wrote A-B-C or D.

    1. Choosing "C" randomly would have got you a score of 60. "C" was the correct bonus choice.
      "B" was the correct answer twice, but if you had used "B" in the bonus round you would have lost those 20 points and ended up at 0.
      "A" was the correct choice in three of the questions.

      "D" was the correct answer only once.
