It’s that time of year! Yes, time for the Fantasy Football playoffs. On the back of a fearsome running game, my Snow Monkeys took the second seed in my league, winning themselves a much-needed (last) weekend off with a first-round bye. Today, they were back at it, meeting As Luck Would Have It in semi-final action. My opponent managed 109.10 points, in most part thanks to Jamaal Charles’ annoying 51.50 outburst. With five of my players still to hit the field, including QB Matt Stafford this Monday night, I’m feeling cautiously optimistic about the 42 points I need to snag the victory. I need BIG games from Antonio Brown and Giovanni Bernard tonight. Wish my Snow Monkeys luck!
In other fantasy football playoff action, Ivon Bartok’s team, The Running Dead, fresh off a wild-card weekend beatdown of Robert C. Cooper’s Landsharks, won again in impressive fashion, destroying Lawren Bancroft-Wilson’s (creatively named) team, Lawren.
So, if all goes as it should – and why wouldn’t it? -next week, Ivon’s Running Dead will be playing Orphan Black writer (and former Stargate script coordinator) Alex Levine’s Flemish Giants. While, in my other league, my Snow Monkeys will face off against Tio’s team, Petunia Power.
Condolences to Robert Cooper’s Dallas Cowboys who continue to find new and creative ways to lose.
Yes, it was a full football Sunday. And there’s still the late game to watch. And, once that’s done, the Survivor season finale (Go Tyson!).
So, how were your weekends? What wast the most exciting thing you did? Don’t be shy. Do tell!
