Three out of three of our Royal Rumble potential finalists are undefeated, which means Game 3 strategies are out and about. Let’s review.
Coach Dan seems to be comfortable sticking with the deep cuts, and seems to be winning the gambit. Allman Brothers’ “Pony Boy” (which I can only assume is an ode to “The Outsiders”- the only thing cooler than being named Ponyboy is being named Ponyboy with a brother named Soda Pop, a friend named Dallas, and a best friend that’s also the Karate Kid) falls to “In God’s Country,” 67.8-66.5. U2 pulls ahead to 2-0. Dan stays strategic with another deep cut, and Coach George+Wife throw out a classic trying to avoid falling down 3 games.
Folks, AC/DC is in some trouble here now having dropped 2 in a row. “Dancing Days” ekes out “Girl’s Got Rhythm” 83.2-81.6. We’ve been seeing some block Zepp voting from the Cantonese and their allies- only time will tell if Coach Joe can overcome and finally put a dent in the unstoppable band looking for its 5th victim.
In similar trouble is Atmosphere, whose “Shhh” falls to “Cotton Fields,” 69.7-66.6. The Beach Boys claim the largest margin of victory this round and look to be in the firmest control as we go forward.
