Following an improbable come from ahead loss in a week in which my Snow Monkeys put up the SECOND most points in the league, eventually losing the the TOP scoring team in the league, my Monkeys were upset this weekend. The loss, coupled with a win by Steve’s Tebow Sucks means my Monkeys are eliminated from post-season play. I am beyond frustrated, angry, and bitter. So much so that I can’t bear the thought of watching another football game. I’m done. On the bright side, Akemi is pleased to hear it since it means my Sundays will be free now.
But, before I sign off on this fantasy football league season, I’d like to take a moment to offer some thanks-for-nothings to the players whose under performances and generally crap play in these final few weeks cost my team a playoff berth.
THANKS-NOTHINGS go out to:
Aaron Rodgers (QB, Green Bay Packers) for NOT ONCE looking James Jones’ way during the Packers’ embarrassingly futile effort against the New York Giants last week.
James Jones (WR, Green Bay Packers) for pulling a disappearing act when I needed him most, putting up a staggering 0.00 effort against the New York Giants last week.
Drew Brees (QB, New Orleans Saints) for delivering the worst statistical performance of his career in a must-win game against the Atlanta Falcons. 5 interceptions. 0 touchdowns. Way to want it.
Andy Dalton (QB, Cincinnati Bengals) for ignoring the best player on your team, wide receiver AJ Green, in your match-up against the San Diego Chargers this week.
AJ Green (WR, Cincinnati Bengals) for turning in a mediocre performance the week after I trade for purportedly “the #1 wide receiver in the league”.
Dennis Pitta (TE, Baltimore Ravens) for a truly pitiful effort. 19 total yards? Seriously, dude. Why even bother suiting up?
I wish you all the worst in your respective attempts to win the Superbowl.
A few pics from what, it turns out, was my last Football Sunday get-together:
The mains were stuffed turkey thighs, a stuffed pork tenderloin, braised meatballs, and sweet potato mash.
Best of luck to Rob, Steve, Tio and everyone else who made it to the playoffs. Let me know how it all turns out.
