ON SPORTS ~ Hangin' With The Boys...

I think it has been extremely polite of our Fantasy League Commissioner to lose not once, but twice, to a girl. It has made me feel so welcome in the boy's league! The Commish now has the distinction of being the only team I have beat more than once. I own his ass.

Meanwhile, Andy suffered defeat and has the distinction of being tied for last place with The Commish. Hahahahahaha! Oh c'mon. Let me have my moment. They are the only two teams I'm ahead of in the standings. This week our roles could easily be reversed. Although since Andy is matched up against the top dog who has only lost once all season, somehow I don't feel good karma heading his way. I'm matched up with mediocrity in the middle - I've beat this opponent before and I plan to do it again. Even if I did spot him 40 points from Thursday night's game. Yikes.

In the Ladies' League I fell asleep at the wheel and forgot to switch my Defense option. So that meant that while Da Bears were getting run over, my score was plumetting. No matter. Even if I had used my other option - Atlanta's D - instead it still wouldn't have been quite enough to beat my foe. This week I am duking it out with a Redskins fan who is tied with me for tops in the Division. While my SF Running Back was busy running all over the field and racking up points for me Thursday night, her Chicago QB was busy throwing 5 interceptions and no TD's which in Fantasy world results in a measly 2 points. QB's are usually good for 15 - 20. So I'm hoping to cruise to another victory and take over 1st place by myself.

As for the Pick 'Em Pool, I had a shot at the top but the Broncos lost to the Steelers and that left me out of the money. I'm still clinging to the 20's while Andy is in the 60's - only 30 points behind! This is when it starts getting real interesting. All the teams will be back in the mix for the remainder of the year after this week when all the bye games have passed. And that means more choices to make with key implications on those overall scores. Do we have any more weekly victories in us? Can I pull back up in to the top 10? The weeks are already running out - game on.

Boston Babe (Molly's Team) = Last Week, Lost - Overall, 5-4
(modifying this lineup for injuries only, ladies league)

GiselleWearsThePants (Molly's team) = Last Week, Won - Overall, 4-5
Brady Goes To Miami (Andy's team) = Last Week, Lost - Overall, 3-6
~head to head (Molly vs. Andy) = I don't want to talk about it (0-2)
(actively modifying this lineup, up against the boys)
