LAST WEEK: 4-2
I was extremely busy this week with actual work and gleeful reading of right wing blogs and news. Reading and seeing their stunned reactions (like the ones here) as reality forcefully ripped apart their bubble where Benghazi was a scandal and the emergency room is the place for preventative medicine. Oh man, just the best.
THE NEV-R-WINS (9-0) vs ZOLTAN'S ZEROS (5-4)
The undefeated dream becomes ever nearer, and you should heed my claims of retirement if I finish this season 15-0.
But since I'm totally taking this one game at a time, let's discuss this week. I will win this week.
THE NEV-R-WINS 115 - ZOLTAN'S ZEROS 81
THE PEOPLE'S ELBOW (3-6) vs. PURPLE SWIRLS (4-5)
Yahoo has dubbed this RIVALRY WEEK, but I'm not entirely sure what that is based on. Yeah, this game here is brother v. brother, but I don't think Yahoo knows that and why would it affect the whole league? And shouldn't Rivalry Week involve divisional matchups?
Caulen's starting lineup this week has Cecil Shorts and Taiwan Jones, which is so very, very Caulen. Can't argue with those 16 points from Shorts on Thursday night, though.
THE PICK: PURPLE SWIRLS 93 - THE PEOPLE'S ELBOW 89
HACKS (4-5) vs. WHIZ-BANG GANG (5-4)
Trent Richardson is on a bye and the only option for replacing him is Daryl Richardson. Who's playing the Niners. So the Richardson might have the same point total this week. Plus, Justin Blackmon already played and farted out a worthless 2.5 point game.
So, you know, this won't be very close.
THE PICK: WHIZ-BANG GANG 95 - HACKS 70
ATLAS SHRUGGZ (3-6) vs. DEATHFROMABOVE (2-7)
THE PICK: ATLAS SHRUGGZ 75 - DEATHFROMABOVE 66
IRON CITY POUNDERS (4-5) vs. LOWCOUNTRY ALL STARS (4-5)
The winner of this game stays in the playoff hunt and could actually be in the 6th seed. What a league this is.
THE PICK: IRON CITY POUNDERS 101 - LOWCOUNTRY ALL STARS 88
ST. A'S CRUSADERS (5-4) vs. FIREROCK ROCKERS (5-4)
If the Crusaders lose this game, they'll be 5-5 while still be leading the Weegie Thompson Division. But it's possible that they could only have the league's 6th overall seed. Again, what a league this is.
That said, it's going be pretty hard to lose with a 25-point lead built on the strength of a 20-point effort from the Colts DST.
THAT said, the Crusaders are actually going to manage to lose.
THE PICK: FIREROCK ROCKERS 119 - ST. A'S CRUSADERS 103
