ON SPORTS ~ Playoffs Baby...


I did it! I survived Round One of the playoffs in the Ladies League!!! I beat my opponent for 2 weeks and held more combined points. So off I go to the Finals. And I really really really want to beat her because it appears as if she has stopped monitoring her team altogether. You read that right. She has advanced to the finals without doing anything. She beat the #1 ranked team in the first round with an empty spot on her starting roster. Just goes to show how little skill is actually involved in this pastime! I have the last 2 weeks of the season to rack up more points than her and I fully intend for my players to do so.

In the boys' league Andy had a battle on his hands to make the playoffs - and he couldn't pull it off. Mr. Invincible gave him a beatdown and that was the end of that. So Andy and the Commish wallow around fighting over last place. I go on to the playoffs, matched up this week against an opponent I've beat twice out of three matchups this year. I'm a bit undecided with my lineup as of yet but I'd better get it squared away soon. This league works differently in that we have one round this week and then winners advance to the final next week.

So while you are enjoying your Christmas weekend, think of me and my playoff adventures - winning the Ladies League and a shot at the same against the boys would be terrific presents for me indeed!

FYI - our mom of twins friend is still hanging on to her overall lead in the Pick 'Em League with her hubby in 3rd. Two more weeks to go to secure big payoffs - which I'm sure would help pay those credit card bills in January! We'll have to wait for a winning lottery ticket or something - no big money for us in the middle of the masses.

ROUND-UP:
Boston Babe (Molly's Team) = 2nd Overall, 7-6 (regular season) - Playoffs, Won Round 1, Advanced to Finals
(modifying this lineup for injuries only, ladies league)

GiselleWearsThePants (Molly's team) = Last Week, Won - 3rd Overall, 8-7 (regular season) - Playoffs, Semi-Final matchup this week
Brady Goes To Miami (Andy's team) = Last Week, Lost - 5th Overall, 5-10 (regular season) - Playoffs, Consolation bracket
~head to head (Molly vs. Andy) = I don't want to talk about it (0-3)
(actively modifying this lineup, up against the boys)

Congratulations, Molly! Making the finals is an awesome achievement--and a great "present." Merry Christmas to you and Andy!

I, too, made it to the finals! Go Pink! And I'm playing Hubby's team, to top it off. At this point I'm ahead by 12, but he has 2players in the game tonight - so he could catch up going into the final week.

Good luck in your game!
