The Owners of the CFCL 2009
Pictured from left: Rich Bentel (Dem Rebels), Matt Bentel (DoorMatts), Bob Boryca (Mo's Red Hots), Kenn Ruby (Kenndoza Line - eventual 2009 CFCL Champion), Mike Bentel (Proxy for David's Ruffins), Tim Morkert (Morkertzuma's Revenge), Matt Grage (Graging Bulls), Michael Moore (Moore Better), Mike Coulter (Candy Colored Clowns), David Mahlan (David's Copperfields).
2009 was interesting for a couple of reasons. It was the last draft at my office conference room (I would change employers in early 2010 starting us on a two year trek through high schools and basements). The Kenndoza Line snagged their second CFCL title in one of the closest races in history, beating the DoorMatts by tie-breaker rules. Mike Bentel received some Draft Day experience by sitting as proxy for the Ruffins. Notice Mike was holding the phone so Dave Holian could be in the picture. Yes, we are such geeks that we took the picture while Holian was on the phone. You may be wondering why Matt Grage has such a goofy expression on his face. It's not because he's wearing his "angry eyes" hat. You'll also notice Matt is pointing down, to the phone console, to futher emphasize the virtual attendance of the Ruffins.
Also worth mentioning is the talent of Kenn Ruby. He was able to, yet again, include DunnKenn (mascot) in the photo. This time carefully balanced on the brim of his hat.
This was the last season for Moore Better. Michael Moore (not the movie director) resigned at the end of the season and his team would be taken over by Mike Bentel.
