2009 – Week 8

First Things First


The Redskins have banned fans from bringing signs to games (probably to cut down on the number of signs criticizing the owners and management). Sure some are lame, but some are inspired. How about this one from this weekend?

Perfection. 
Some NFL teams posted their first wins of the season this weekend. Could Hiawatha’s only winless team follow suit by upsetting one of the big dogs? Read on!
In the Premier League, the Marshmallow Mateys are on top of the world! Here are the scores from Week 8:
Monday Night (Phil) – 97
Egon’s Ego (Bernt) – 115
Marshmallow Mateys (Cory) – 84
Wyld Stallyns CS (Dave) – 78
diddy (Jim) – 83
Kibbles & Vick (Frank) – 103
Dead Heads (Nate) – 64
Beer Boys (Hyatt) – 91
Stalins of Style (Chris A.) – 65
Mighty Nimrods (Tom) – 52
KRUG Kommanders (Denny & Isaac) – 96
Killer Canaries III (Bob) – 93
The Mateys’ 84 points were enough to get by the Stallyns, which makes gives the Mateys a seven game winning streak! Unbelievable! diddy was handled somewhat easily by Kibbles & Vick in was was obviously a statement game for Frank. The KRUG boys deserve props too for tripping up the Canaries by 3 points. Teamwork!

There was a big monkey excision this week in the League of Champions and…wait…another tie?! 
Scores:
The Phantom Limbs (Peter) – 51
Grandma Nancy (Tyler) – 95
Pacifist Assassins (John) – 76
FAIL Team (Andy) – 94
Mightiest Muffins (Mike) – 74
The Alchemists (Chris T.) – 74
The Bone Doctors (Chris W.) – 95
An Apple a Day (Eric) – 52
Rusty Shackelford (Aaron) – 87
Taking Chances (Wayne) – 101
The Tortilla Chips (Darren) – 131
Russ’ Rowdy Rhinos (Russ) – 108
So FAIL Team was able to come together and take down the Pacifist Assassins! The Muffins and the Alchemists play to a tie! At first glance, it looked like Chris had blundered by not taking Santana Moss out for his bye week, but then Mike left Calvin Johnson in (hoping he’d play through pain, but no such luck) so the two moves offset each other. The Tortilla Chips exploded with 131 points behind Rodgers, Gore and Chris Johnson and made the match against the Rhinos a shootout!

Team of the Week

FAIL Team!!!! This has to be considered the biggest upset of the year so far! Andy’s team not only got win #1 on the year, but they did it against an Assassins team that had won 4 in a row coming into this game. Huge, HUGE win for FAIL. Is a team name change warranted?
Housekeeping
Best. Bye week. Ever! Sure Adrian Peterson is on a bye, but what other big-name studs will be missed this week? Buffalo, Cleveland, Oakland, St. Louis, New York Jets and Minnesota are the teams on vacation. Also, consider this advanced warning: starting in week 10 the NFL will start scheduling regular Thursday Night games, the first being on November 12th. If you’ve gotten in the habit of setting your rosters on Friday, be careful!
Finally, your commish is getting ever closer to the arrival of a Little Commish, so your regular weekly emails may experience some downsizing in the next few weeks. Send complaints to the union. 
Until Next Week,
Commish Peter
