Play our season out, Keyboard Cat!
The People's Champion had a bad day... so bad that by the time 4pm rolled around we didn't even bother taking out the inactive Stephen Jackson from our lineup. Not that it would have mattered anyway.
La Machine soundly defeated Renal Failure 127-62 for the HBFFL Championship, no two or three or six ways about it, and in complete Wild Card (bitches!) fashion too as we did not expect our starting lineup (with the exception of Philip Rivers) to utterly and completely collapse in the biggest game of the year. Nope... didn't see that coming at all. That's how the Wild Card rolls.
But there is no sympathy for the devil, or Renal Failure. So I guess that's our last nickname of the year, The Devil. It does explain how we got away with that trade with The Ramblers, and why no one really wanted to trade with us after that. That and the Devil has all the best bands on his side.

On the bright side, we did improve over last season's 7th-place finish at 8-6, won our first playoff game ever (before totally not showing up for the championship game), and set the benchmarks of excellence for the regular season with our nine-game win streak and 12-2 record.
And now we've reached the Fantasy off-season, where the People's Champion is likely to lose themselves in an alcohol-soaked bender until we're numb to all of our pain and dissapointment. And hopefully by the time we come out of that self-destructive cycle it'll be time for the 2010 HBFFL season... where the fight to the top begins again.
