I coulda been a contender.
It's true. I coulda been another Billy Conn.
However, Chris Cameron decided it wasn't my night and all I got was a one-way ticket to Palooka-ville.
To wit, according to Yahoo projections, I was supposed to win 109-86 over Chris's La Machine, on the backs of Aaron Rodgers, Arian Foster and Frank Gore, but then Chris along with Ray Rice, Cedric Benson, Terrell Owens and Roddy White said, "This ain't your weekend."
Mainly, it was Arian Foster who took the dive, amassing only 2 fantasy points when he was supposed to have had 24. The only card I could have dealt differently was Santana Moss, who had 16 fantasy points, but even then I would have lost to Rice's 32, Benson's 22 and Owens and White's 21 apiece.
I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am, let's face it. It was you, Chris...
...and those four goons you had.
La Machine and The Ramblers meet again Week 14 where already The Ramblers are projected to take a 111-79 win.
While I take nothing for granted, next time we'll come out swinging.
Yeah, it will be like that.
