The Nibble Big 10 is Formed!

Deep in the heart of the brutal land of "Pencil-Vania", exists an immortal Coach known only as "Joe."  He looks out over the ominous mountains that surround 
his valley, searching for the Coach who one day might claim his throne.  His team of Lions have dominated the land for as long as anyone can remember, besting all challengers on the Blood Bowl pitch.  But the winds of change are sweeping across these hills, and a new band of Coaches hope to stake their claim on this title... Lord of these mountains, King of the Lions!     Welcome to the Nittany Blood Bowl League (NiBBL)!

Breaking News:

Season 2: Week 1

The new season is off and running and if the first few games are any indication of what's to come, this blood fest will be legendary!

The elves, of Dark and of Wood, were the first to step onto the pitch. Each side was supremely confident in their ability to score and score often. The game went back and forth, and even saw a mighty Treeman running down the field with the ball! But in the end, the Villains of Yore's thirst for vengeance was stalemated by the Woodland Rashes' quest for justice! Dr. Claw was the evil champion, scoring both a touchdown and casualty. But a late touchdown by the Wood Elves' star Wardancer Nightshade (did I mention she's hot-sauce?) tied the game at 2 for a draw. One could only imagine the juggernaut these teams could form if they could put their differences aside. A "Dark Wood" team might just be too "big" for the rest of us to handle! The only thing this game lacked was the Wardancer squaring off against the Witch Elf for a little girl-on-girl action!

The fierce Norse team Ba-Zerka, fresh off the slaughter of some Chaos Beastmen, challenged the ancient Khemri titans of the Ashen First. The blood bowl crowd, who had grown sleepy from all the dancing and prancing in the all-elven game, were ready for some carnage! In fact, they were so riled up they straight up murdered the first Norse Runner that was pushed off the pitch! At least he died with his boots on... actually he died with OTHER people's boots on his face, but now we're picking nits! Meanwhile, on the blood-stained field, the Tomb Guardians ruled the pitch. And the way the Khemri's coach was talking trash proves once and for all that the dead really do tell tales... and um, can talk a good game of smack. Final score, 2 to 0 to the Khemri, who look like a force to be reckoned with. Ba-Zerka's confidence remains high though! A little bit of mead, feasting, raping and pillaging, and they'll be ready to lower the hammer on their next foe!

The blood-letting continued into the next match between the Dragon Horde and Mr. Spikey and the Gang. A game record 9 casualties were recorded! Almost prophetic in his pre-game speech the Undead coach motivated his team to the tune of 6 casualties, and very nearly acquired the new "friends" he was looking for. Star Mummy Morgo racked up 4 all by his lonesome! Insert the obligatory "Who's your Mummy" joke here. However, victory went to the Lizards, whose speed carried them to a 2 to 1 result! The slippery Skinks managed to find all the right holes... that's what she said! Will an early win be worth the pain and suffering the Horde endured to get it?

The Nurgle team the Stirland Swamp Things (where's Adrienne Barbeau?!?!) squared off against the Orc team Grr ooo... puppie (an attention deficient group of Orcs who are distracted by puppies... now I've seen everything!) in the last match of the week. The raucous fans got to witness what happens when an unstoppable force (the Orcs) bangs heads with an immovable object (the Nurgle)... players get hurt, blood spews everywhere, and merriment and joy are had by all! The Orcs pulled out a slim 1 to 0 victory and seem to have hit the ground running. The Swamp Things very nearly scored themselves, however, and coaches best beware of the stank of Nurgle! An additional 3 casualties places the weekly total at 18! And yet the ONLY death was caused by a group of pissed off fans! In the words of the immortal Mincemeat Lombardi - "what the hell is going on around here!"

This much blood bowl goodness will assuredly spill over into Week 2, so get those Apothocaries ready! The Dragon Horde, weakened in their first match, will play host to the Ashen Fist. This will be speed vs strength at it's finest! The Woodland Rashes will face the Stirland Swamp Things in what's bound to be a disease ridden game. I'm going to go ahead and take back my comment that the Wardancer is hot-sauce, that STD carrying slu.... Our third match will feature the Villains of Yore versus Mr. Spikey and the Gang. Will Mr. Spikey gain his first "friend", or will the Dark Elves continue to shun him like the freak that he is? Our final match pits the ravage Norse Ba-Zerka team against the dim-witted Orcs. I'm wondering if it was a mistake to call them dim-witted? Nah, what are the chances they can even read? Hell, there coach can't even pick a proper team name. Zing!

Best of luck in week 2!
