Despite his embarrassment & insistence to vote for others, Staaaaaaaaasshhh retains his crown. I, however, am no usurper - I'm merely a statistical aberration. (Tho we are, fittingly, the group's most famous fictional couple. Foxy still loves Jean-Claude, despite nuking the capital to be rid of him.) Rumor has it the entertainment section of the Daily Planet refers to us as "Scosh". I hate that. At least I got top billing.

Co-PLAYER(s) of the YEAR:

Always in uniform and ready with the Yellow/Red Cards. "Jeff!" or "Ryan!" usually follows (they're interchangable)
