Classic 4 points Modern 1 point
Five matches. Four wins by Team Classic. The classic era of actors are off to a 4-1 point advantage over their modern counterparts. In match 1, Steve McQueen beat Clint Eastwood 20-11, gaining 64% of all votes. In match 2, Spencer Tracy topped Tom Cruise 22-10. Team Modern picked up their only win and point when Harrison Ford beat James Cagney 18-14. Ford was down the first two days but rallied to tie Cagney on Wednesday and then pull away today. In match 4, the marquee match-up, which was anything but as Cary Grant steamrolled Johnny Depp 29-6 for 82% of the vote. Surprisingly that was not the largest margin of victory. That took place in match 5 as Clark Gable just decimated Daniel Day Lewis 28-5 for an 84% share of the votes. I want to think everyone who voted for this first week of Lombard Cup action and I will post the match ups for week 2 by Saturday. And then those matches will kick off Sunday evening.
