THEY LIVETeam: Butch and Sundance is not scheduled to play in the next round.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid robbed trains, banks and stole horses in the 1890’s Wild West. Their characters were immortailised in the 1969 film bearing their name and staring the 60’s film idols Paul Newman as Butch and Robert Redford as the Kid.
Butch, born Robert Leroy Parker on 13 April 1866 in Beaver Utah was the son of a Mormon family. He left home at 13 to work as a labourer. Shifting with the work, Butch fell in with Mike Cassidy a cattle and horse hustler. Cassidy’s occupation was more exciting than manual labour and Butch joined in his gang and later assumed his name.
Pursued by the law, Butch moved through Wyoming until he was given 18 months inside for stealing horses. On his release Butch formed his own gang – the Wild Bunch – which included the Sundance Kid (born Harry Longabaugh). Known for their flair and daring, not their violence, the Wild Bunch held up trains with some success.
But with their success came detectives and bounties. Keen to escape with their lives Butch, the Kid and his fiancée Etta Place travelled to New York and sailed to Argentina in 1901.
In South America, the trio robbed banks and trains. For a while they retired to run a ranch in Argentina, but the quiet life didn’t last long. In 1908 the Bolivian government say, Butch and the Kid were trapped by thier soldiers, in the ensuing gun battle the Kid was killed and Butch shot himself. Yet other reports claim the outlaws returned to the USA under aliases and lived out their lives peacefully.
Butch's bitch tried to sabotage the magnificent duo of Butch and Sundance, but her attempt proved FUTILE as she was unable to complete her treacherous task!!
I know what you're all thinking: Blade is the weak link on this team. Well you're WRONG.
Actually hit's 56k modem and penchant for crashing is the weak link on this team; Blade (aka the little Cacra that could) is actually a fine player and model human being.
Still, if Killer shows up, no weak link partner will keep this team out of round 4 at the very least.
Beyond that is hard to say, they'll have superior strategy but will have to work the damage points into the strategy as well, something hit didn't do well in the first FoC.
30 people have predicted that this team will make the top ten.
Among these people, the average rank predicted is: 5
