Here's the latest from SoSG Fantasy Football, from the Commissioner Mr. LA Sports Fan himself:
MLASF 99 (1-2) - Mr. Customer 87 (1-2) : Woohoo, a win! Mr. Customer got big games from Rashard Mendenhall (20 points), Antonio Gates (16) and the Bengals' defense (13). But that was not enough, as I snagged 23 points from Peyton Hillis, 21 points from DeSean Jackson, and 15 points from Thomas Jones.
Prof. Dittmore 76 (2-1) - NicJ 68 (2-1): The Professor* gets his second win in a row, while Nic's persnickety lineup continues to give him grief. Aaron Rodgers, Jeremy Maclin, and Jermichael Finley combine for 55 of P. Ditty's 76 points, while Nic received only two double-figure players (Tom Brady's 22 and Louis Murphy's 11)
Dusty Baker 95 (3-0) - Jason 88 (0-3): Dusty remains undefeated while Jason continues to see the goose egg in the win column. Peyton Manning's 25 points and Darren McFadden's 17 gave DB the leg up, while Team Deltalina received 24 points from Chris Johnson and 20 points from Cedric Benson.
Paul 92 (2-1) - Spanky 79 (1-2): Paul triumphs in the battle of the Rams' fans, delivering Spanky his second straight loss. Philip Rivers gave the victor 24 points, while Randy Moss added 16 and Malcolm Floyd threw in 15. Spanky had 29 points from Austin Collie and 22 points from Drew Brees, but none of his other players reached double-digits.
Karina (2-1) - Meaniebreanie 79 (1-2): Adrian Peterson is a Venezuelan's best friend this week; the Vikings' RB hauled 31 points for Karina, who also got 22 points from Brandon Marshall and 14 points from Jamaal Charles.
Next week, we get Karina v. Jason, Dusty v. MLASF, Mr C v. Nic, P Ditty v. Paul, and Spanky v. MB. Will Dusty lose his first game? Will Jason win his first? Will Nic figure out which running back can remain healthy? Will Spanky get his smack on? Find out only on "The Bold and the SoSGful!"
Baseball's winding down now, and with the Dodgers' recent play, nothing says escapism like Fantasy Football! The envelope, please:
[Sax's note (*): Whenever I hear "the Professor", I either think about Gilligan's Island (of course) or the old Apple 2 game, Aztec. Not that I want anything bad to happen to Mr. Dittmore; I just remember mocking the hell out of this while playing the game as a kid. So, just for throwback's sake, enjoy.]
