The Most Awesome 2-2 Ever
The People's Champion explains how they pick their playoff winners, and how they ran their fantasy football team too...
If there anyone out there who doubts that Renal Failure is the Wild Card (bitches!), this Wild Card Weekend should thoroughly convince you otherwise.
Like everyone else participating in the HBFFL Playoff Picks Extravaganza we went 2-2 with our selections this week, but those two wins were the most impressive wins of the week as we were the only ones who picked the Jets and Ravens to win. Chris, Rambler, and even Joe the former Defending Champion who's playing along in the comments... they didn't believe in them but the People's Champion did and we were rewarded for our faith.
Yes, we also picked the Eagles to win, but that selection was more out of principle and spite than of football acumen. We're like the villain in a movie who's hanging by one hand off the side of a building and the hero extends their hand to save us but instead we just smile and let go and plummet to our deaths. That's our policy toward the Cowboys.
Never compromise... even in the face of Armageddon or Jerry Jones.
We're not the King of Fantasy Football or even Leigh's Husband, but once you realize everything is chaos, being the Wild Card is the only thing that makes sense.
Divisional playoff picks coming Thursday. Stay thirsty my friends.
