RBI Tournament 2000


April 22nd 2000, a day that will live in infamy. Four warriors went to battle in a grueling test of skill, patience, and drunken dexterity. While there was room for only one victor, each man (except Potsie) proved his worth in this historical RBI 2000 Championship. Armed each with only an outdated Nintendo controller and 18 Miller Lites, the combantants faced off against their foes in a two-game round robin tourney. Four hours, twelve games, and 12+ beers per person later, two men emerged from the round-robin and squared off in a best-of-three contest to determine the RBI 2000 Champion. Four men go in, one man stumbles out...

Note - These games were all played under strict adherence to the rules of the RBI Drinking Game. Trust me, it wasn't easy..


Enjoy - though there aren't any "in action" pictures or screenshots, just the Dee Nee crew acting goofy. Still rather funny...

The Finals
  • Sperling defeats Lipitz 2-1
  • Notes -In a matchup of two Detroit players, Lips won the preliminary Rock-Paper-Scissors match (see pic), meaning he would get to play Detroit in games 1 & 3. To everyone's amazement, Sperling wins two games with California, including the barnburner in game 3.
