What happens when your Quarter Back (ass-kickin' Aaron Rodgers), a Running Back (Shonn Greene), your two Kickers and your Defence are all on a bye-week? This happens...
That's right Battlestar Galactica fans. A frakin' train wreck.
There I was in week 7 minding my own business, slipping up into third place when week 8 comes along pitting me against "your 2010 HBFFL Champion" Renal Failure and a couple of point magnets called LeSean McCoy (36 pts) and Calvin "Megatron" Johnson (25 pts) who, by the end of Sunday night had racked up more points between them than my whole team. What the frak?
Going into week 8 Purple Drank and Predator Press were tied for first with a 6-1-0. My, until then, mighty nonames were next with a 5-2-0.
The only upside for me in week 8 is that Purple Drank and Predator Press both went down to defeat. Aw, that was a shame.
But it didn't help me. My Rodgers replacement, Matt Cassell, was a day late and a nickel short with his meagre 13 points Monday night and now Mr. Renal Failure's doing the biggest blow-out boogaloo.
So after Purple Drank and Predator Press are tied for first at 6-2-0 this week second place is getting a little crowded with Bourbon Blasters, Renal Failure and my nonames at 5-3-0.
Next week Aaron Rodgers is back among the fold. And he goes up against the indomitable (he likes to think) Purple Drank. Look out PD. I've got you in my sights.
But for this week?
