    The pressure is ALL on YOU Wood head.

    1st place and the bye that goes with it.

    No pressure on me at all. Just a 4th place team that already made it through the first round.

    Now...here is a little fact about my teams...

    It's all or nothing for me.

    I've missed out on the playoffs before, I've been in the playoffs and come away empty handed...


    But I have never, in any fantasy sport, won a trophy for:second: or :third:. I have 6 golds but not bronze or silver cups.



    I:noidea: have no clue why this happens, and I certainly hope to break my streak if I can't take home the gold this time. I figure 3 of the 4 teams still going for :winner_first_h4h: will win some kind of trophy, so I would be happy with any hardware to show for my efforts.


    :clone:You outnumbered me by a slew (your team is like locusts) for the week so I made some adjustments to my lineup due to injuries and numbers. Now I am only down 4 player games for the week. I figure that makes us even since you suck so bad anyhow. You will use most of that advantage tonight so use it well grasshopper.

    OOps, did I just step on something?

    Woody can't answer your call right now. He is at a senior's center competing in an apple sauce tasting contest.









    Man, the best part about being out, is I have nothing to lose by talking trash. Stick it Taterhead!

    I didn't realize you could still trash talk if your team stunk.

    In that case, I did happen to compare how my team would have done matched up against Mikhail or Roscoe if we had played last week. Gee, I would have beaten them both.

    Have a nice day.

    I am alive and well.

    I finally get revenge on Tater from two years ago when he first introduced the dreaded "tatering", where he continuously switched out his team so as to have the maximun number of players every day. I still almost beat him.

    Now, this year, he's doing the same thing again as he mentioned above. The only change is the weekly lineups which now limit him from cheating.
    Likely, he'll still find some way to do it.

    My team is not playing as well as earlier. Particularly my goalies. Nevertheless, LET'S GET IT ON!!!

    I was thinking back to my previous playoff encounters with Roscoe. Then I realized I didn't have any.

    Odd, I've played Jammer two or three times, Bill's kid twice, bezeach, Woody. Max, Warty, Webz twice, Slippy, and a couple others I can't recall off the top of my noggin.

    So why no Roscoe? He's been in almost every league I've been in. What a coincid...Oh dear....wait...Oh...I guess...Oh, now I feel so darned bad. I should have realized it is so rare that he makes the playo...Oh... I better delete this before I accidentally push the wron...

    Yeah, that hurts but my other goalies were doing better for me. It's not like one category would matter at this time anyhow, lol.:deathstar1:

    Fleury gives up 5 goals whenever I put him in so I can't really kick myself on this. My other guys lost 2-1 in shootouts & overtime.

    You had really outnumbered me until today but my guys disappeared tonight anyhow. Plus, you're number one so this was supposed to happen...although my numbers on the year were every bit as good if not better than yours.

    It's not over, but if I lose this one, I'll just shoot for the bronze. :)

    Looks like one of my goalies got a shut out tonight Woody.

    Once again, against your goalie (who got the hook early)...but this time I played the right guy. :P

    Really? Uh oh.

    I was thinking a SHG or SHA might be the determining factor.

    I hope Dart and Woofy both lose. I want Mikhail to go all the way, that way I can say I lost to the champ.

    Congratulations Woody.

    That was super close. Final score is 5-5 so you advance based on the first tiebreaker (goals).

    Gold & Silver round =Jammer vs. Woody

    Bronze round= Mikhail vs. Darth

    ARE YOU SURE????

    I don't have statwacker so I've been trying to figure out what happened.

    Lidstrum got a shorthanded assist to tie one of Tater's guys. And Backstrom won his game to tie another Tater win. And then all the other stuff was too much for my feeble brain.

    I guess I better "Tater-up" my team and get ready for Jammer.

    The finals are two weeks long. I'm not sure my nerves can handle the stress. There are too damm many Canadians. They just keep comming, and comming, and .... :shout::shout:
