Ugh. At the risk of being accused of being a poor sport I thought I should give you an update on last weekend's head-to-head matchup in our Fantasy Football League between myself and Andy. Spouse on spouse crime is what that represented. It seems that real-life Giselle was far too concerned with her baby-to-be to send any good mojo my way and therefore GiselleWearsThePants laid a goose egg against Brady Goes To Miami. I gave Andy a run for his money in the early goings but then he pulled away and kicked my butt.
I had the same trouble in my Ladies League which was particulary discouraging because I of course had trash talked my opponent ahead of time and then she steam rolled me with a ridiculous performance out of Peyton ("I Hate You") Manning on Monday night.
My one sliver of sunshine for the week was my continued good fortune in the pick 'em league where I am currently in 3rd place overall out of about 125 or so people. Andy is bringing up the rear there in 110th position. In addition to paying out to the top 3 finishers each week, the top 8 overall at the end of the season get bigger payouts as well. So I guess I can take some solace in knowing that in the only activity that involves cash, I'm excelling!
Boston Babe (Molly's Team) = Last Week, Lost - Overall, 1-2

GiselleWearsThePants (Molly's team) = Last Week, Lost - Overall, 0-3
Brady Goes To Miami (Andy's team) = Last Week, Won - Overall, 2-1
~head to head (Molly vs. Andy) = I don't want to talk about it (0-1)
(actively modifying this lineup, up against the boys)
