R.I.P. Stargate fantasy football post-season action saw my Snow Monkeys taking on Tio’s Popular Vote Petunia for the right to play in next week’s final. I agonized all morning over my line-up, considering and reconsidering my decision to play C.J. Spiller over Kevin Smith. Finally, a minute before kick-off, I switched out Spiller for Smith. Then, seconds later, switched back. Then, seconds after that, re-switched. Spiller thus sat on my bench and racked up 29 points while Smith disappointed by mustering less than 5. Fortunately, Tio played Manning (who had a terrible game) and, when the dust had settled on the second game, I was up by 29.38 points heading into tonight’s game pitting the Chargers vs. the Ravens. He has two more players to go (Antonio Gates and Anquan Boldin) and if they can put up 30 points between them, then my season is done. But if things hold to form and they fail to have breakout games, then the Snow Monkeys will be celebrating tonight!
Still on tap tonight: That third game of the triple-header in which all my Snow Monkey semi-final questions shall be answered, the Survivor finale and, of course, that Stargate reunion.
After spending an hour on hold, I finally got through to someone at Air Canada and made arrangements to transport Maximus (carry-on) to Montreal should the need arise. His condition hasn’t improved and we have an appointment with the vet tomorrow where we’ll discuss our options.
