2009 – Week 3

First Things First
This clip is required viewing this week:
It doesn’t get much better than that.
As for the fantasy week, one league has some improbable undefeated teams while the other is steeped in mediocrity! Here’s the lowdown.

In the League of Champions, the last unbeaten teams all failed to stay that way. We also saw our first tie of the season (and hopefully our last). Here are the scores:

The Phantom Limbs (Peter) – 71
Taking Chances (Wayne) – 71

Pacifist Assassins (John) – 75
The Bone Doctors (Chris W.) – 119
Grandma Nancy (Tyler) – 81
Mightiest Muffins (Mike) – 96
Rusty Shackelford (Aaron) – 100
Russ’ Rowdy Rhinos (Russ) – 90
Chipotle Salsa (Eric) – 92
The Tortilla Chips (Darren) – 65
The Alchemists (Chris T.) – 88
Fumblecopter (Andrew) – 77
The standings are pretty crazy right now. We’ve got seven teams at 2-1 on the year! We’ll see if the tie will come back to haunt Wayne or the Commish. Meanwhile, John and Andrew are still looking for that elusive first win.

Over in the Premier League, more craziness. Here are the scores:

Beer Boys (Hyatt) – 101
Wyld Stallyns CS (Dave) – 54

Kibbles & Vick (Frank) – 73
Mighty Nimrods (Tom) – 51

As Commish Phil pointed out, there were no nail biters this week since every game was decided by 20+ points. Two teams remain undefeated: Kibbles & Vick and diddy. Jim’s improbable fantasy football success is well documented and seems to be holding true.

It should also be noted that Kibbles & Vick is working hard to stay undefeated! 12 moves and only $60 waiver bucks remaining! They also have lost McNabb, LT and Frank Gore to injury. Crazy run for Frank!

Team of the Week
It’s a tie (everyone loves ties!)! diddy and Kibbles & Vick split the prize for manning up and staying undefeated! I hope the rest of the Premier League uses this as bulletin board material and puts targets on the backs of these teams!

Housekeeping
Bye weeks start this week! If you have players from Atlanta, Philadelphia, Arizona or Carolina, make sure you have a fill in player ready to roll. 

Also, just a plug for Yahoo’s StatTracker. If you haven’t used it, I’d highly recommend you check it out. You get live scores for all your teams and the NFL games as they’re happening. Plus, at the bottom of the application, there is an Instant Messenger feature so you can chat with your league during the games. I know Tyler’s been on there mouthing off about his winning team. So check it out on Sundays, it’s just one more dimension to the game.

Until Next Week,

Commish Peter
