I'm not sure why the Ravens decided to put in their backup QB with 2 minutes left but it really could have screwed me big time. I was losing my game by 5 or 6 points and I had Forte on Sunday night so I was feeling pretty good about my chances (more on that later) The guy I played had the Patriots defense. I'm looking at our gamecast and I see the Patriots defense points jump up by 8 and I figure WTF. I click on the game tracker and with my slow connection I see that some clown for the Ravens fumbled the ball and the Patriots recovered it for a a TD. No problem I figure now Forte needs aout 13 -14 points. he should get that against the Eagles. I go back to the gamecast and again, right before my very eyes the Patriots defense score jumps by 8 again. The same clown throws a pick six. Now Forte needs about 22-23 points. Still doable I figure but now I'm thinking if he scores that well it may mean the Bears win. Of course even without the 2 defensive TDs it turns out Forte did not score enough that I would have won anyway and I blame that on Matt Stafford, my QB, who has been dreadful.

Now I need Gore to score less than 4 points tonight or my season in both leagues will end in the semifinal round.

1 league (the one I already lost in) I was the 4th seed (1st wildcard) even though I was tied with the best record at 10-4 and had beaten the division winner twice (our tie breaker is total points not head to head)

The other league I was #1 seed with highest point total but I will still likely end up losing.

Oh well, still pretty successful seasons money wise. I should be able to make enough to cover my fees but I don't know. I made more roster moves this year in both leagues than I ever have. Its the closest I have ever come since about 4 years ago when I was runner up in both leagues. I took home over $500.00 bucks that year so I am hoping for at least a $250.00 payout this season. That should cover my expenses.

You get paid? Hey Kevin where is my cash for beating your butt yesterday?

I can hate the patties without adding anything new to the list.

Eh, I was part of a 16 team league with a $200 buy-in. I had the 4th highest total points but finished 5-8. I had second high score on 3 separate occasions (high score gets $50) including 161. I'm not going to get a dime. You could have been fucked a whole hell of a lot worse than you were.

Oh trust me I know, and I have been. I've had seasons like yours as well. I'm sure we all have if we play long enough.

I am thankful I will not have to come up with the cash, or at least not all of it, for the entry fee (my brother in law runs the league so he lets me skate to see if I win anything. He does it with a lot of the guys he knows well)
