SportsPros(e) ties up the week that was
Oddly, the brothers Allen (they are brothers, right?) missed this week's biggest story: my fantasy football team's improbable run to the playoffs. How's this for a short story: my season started off ominously when my first round pick got Bernard Pollard'd eight minutes into the year. I persevered, leading the league in points most of the season, yet catching everyone else's best week in the process.
Things looked bleak in Week 13 when I trailed Beau 74.06 to 63.56 going into the Monday night game; Beau sending out Owen Daniels, my season (and money) resting with Andre Johnson. Johnson outscored Daniels 13.5 to 2.5, good enough to give me 77.06 to 76.56 victory. That put me in a 'win or Dye trying' situation last weekend against Mike, with the winner going to the playoffs.
Even though I made a classic roster blunder - forgetting to sub out Darren McFadden before the Thursday night game - The Never Nudes still were able to squeak out a four point win. Mike claims that this is the second consecutive season I've crushed his hopes and dreams in the final week of the regular season (I have no recollection of this), so that's fun, too. Playoffs start next week. I'll keep you updated.
Dubs texted in sick today at Top Ten, so I brought back an old favorite.
