    Well, my team last year was called "Ggazoo's Steroid Users." I changed my name this season to throw the feds off the trail.

    Despite what Darth has been telling you, you do know that it isn't a real dance, right?

    Congrats to Roscoe for eliminating me this week. With Tom Brady going down today, I think my fantasy teams are simply jinxed....

    Roscoe, you pooped out Bill?

    Seriously though, nice comeback.

    Bill you took a tough loss with Brady and Burleson is hurt too.

    I lost Barber, but I'm hoping his ribs are just bruised rather than broken.

    So much of fantasy sports is luck...

    I wanted to avoid Bill's kid's team at all costs. He's a terrible match up for me and really his season numbers make him a lot better than where he ended up. I knew I was going to be in some deep trouble this week.

    Anyhow, on Monday my pitcher came within a couple of strikes of a complete game but couldn't do it. I thought then that was going to come back and bite me later and I still think so.

    Regardless, through some quirk in the schedule, my players play a lot more games than Bill Jr. this week, but he's still somehow managing to kick my butt. Kudos.

    Four out of my 9 position players were hurt yesterday. Luckily, my baseball team is only playing for 5th place.

    I had 4 or 5 football players hurt last week, too. Perhaps athletes should beware of my fantasy teams...

    You should go into business. Make the owners of the real teams pay you NOT to draft (curse) their players. I'm sure those injuries are killing them too!

    Seriously though, I know it totally sucks. I remember Slippy getting killed like this with injuries in basketball before, but it's crazy. I've been hit before, but not as bad as that. I was able to scratch and claw and finish respectably, but my season was shot.

    Looks like 1 vs. 2 for all the marbles. That's how it should be. Congrats to Jammer and Darth. Good luck.

    Figures two guys with the least amount of marbles between them would be competing for the championship. They should rename this the Boblo Island Igloo-Potato League!

    Thanks Green guy. I know I was truly lucky to squeeze in there because the league is so competitive.

    As far as playing Jammer, I've got nothing but respect for him as a person and fantasy manager. So while I would like nothing more than to pummel his team's butt into the ground, I would be proud to display the silver too.

    OK, that's the last nice thing I'm going to say about the popsicle man.

    It's ON now HOSER boy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Baseball thoughts:

    1. What the heck? Bill's kid has an incredible batting week against me...had like 80 hits and flirted with .500 ALL week. It's a small miracle I edged past him (Thank you pitching).

    So he plays Roscoe this week and yesterday goes 1 for 22 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, WTF? :pound: Today he is 1 for 5 so far. I'm starting to get a complex...


    2. Sparky Anderson always said that there was a lot of pressure in the league championship series, but none in the World Series. Just have fun

    So Jammer is kicking my butt early (still very early), but honestly, I'm really just happy to have made it this far no matter the end results.:MusicBigGrin:

    Jammer, what happened to that crap pitching you had last week???


    Oh, and thanks for all those pm's telling me you guys are rooting for me to KILL Jammer. I've copied a couple but removed your names to keep it anonymous.




    "Hey Darth,

    My son and I both know you will beat him down good. We both loved the easy wins against him this season. Gotta run...I think one of my football players just slipped in the locker room and broke his ankle"




    "Hi DT,

    Just taking time out from putting on my makeup to tell you to crunch that Hoser. Even though I am also Canadian, I am rooting for you all the way...Baby boy."



    "Darth,

    This is my first year in the league. I may not join next year if that JERK Jammer beats you. Go Darth!!"





    I'll try not to let you guys down...:stirthepot:

    Sounds like you have a bit of a chip, chip, chip on the old shoulder, shoulder, shoulder.

    Just imagine if Carl Crawford and Ian Kinsler weren't lost for the year. :stirthepot::stirthepot::stirthepot:

    Too bad they can't save your Cannuckian bacon. Your team is dog crap. My calculations tell me that by Friday night your meager 9-0 lead will be whittled down to 8-1.

    And another thing. You are still the CUBS! Ain't hardly a Blue Jay on your squad. Cheater. False advertiser!!

    Hear my footsteps.

    I'd just like to send out a big "Thanks" to all those that sent me congratulatory messages on my succesful taking of the 5th Place Championship last week.

    Talk about selfish. Johnny Damon left the team Thursday to be with his wife, who just had a baby.

    What about my needs Johnny? I'm kind of in the middle of the Championships here buddy. Man, some people.

    Speaking of Championship, this isn't one of those 2 week ones is it? I hate those (and not just because I'm kicking your butt either).
