SoSG Fantasy Football Playoffs Continue!

At least, that's what Mr LA Sports Swami tells me (I'm new to all this):

Still in first round of semis; scoring takes place over two weeks.

But we can still smacktalk our way through this weekend's games, right?

UPDATE 10:53a: thanks Dusty for re-sending this...

SoSG Fantasy Football Playoffs Update  

Week one got underway with some high-powered offense and some downright Garret Anderson-like lack thereof.  

In the Winner’s Bracket, Mr. Customer only managed 41 points in total offense, dwarfed by P Ditty’s 70. If you only get -2 from your QB, you know you’re going to have a bad day. Ditty’s own QB only managed 1 point before being knocked from the game with a concussion. He’ll have to replace Aaron Rodgers for tomorrow if he hopes to keep his distance from Mr. C. Due to injuries and the vagaries of the playoff gameplay, it’s still anybody’s game with everything on the line coming into Sunday’s and Monday’s games. ESPN fantasy wizards predictions of the scoreline show that P Ditty can be caught.  

In the other Winner’s Bracket, Dusty Baker featured a potent offense that brought him a convincing 132 points. Paul trotted out his team’s QB, Michael Vick, which will surely lead to karmic retribution for the callous dog killer (Vick, not Paul). Will the 132 – 97 scoreline be too much for Paul to overcome? ESPN fantasy wizards say it will be so, and so did the Magic Eight Ball I just consulted for this report.  

In the Sloppy Seconds Bracket, MRLASC put the sword to Karina, outscoring her 114 – 52. Karina had to invoke her safe word finally as the beatdown continued. Looks like it may be the end of the run for an otherwise Cinderella season for Karina, who came into the league knowing next to nothing about American football but acquitting herself more than adequately all season.  

Meaniebreanie and Spanky went at it……….in one of the other Sloppy Seconds Bracket games, which seems appropriate given their similar season records and their ongoing banter brimming with sexual innuendo and extraneous apostrophes. The scoreline currently shows Spanky with a three point lead, 95 - 92. This one is anybody’s game and figures to feature high drama and spanking references.  

Finally, Nic and Jason are going at it like two teenagers behind the junior high gym after a dance. Jason has a 97 – 71 lead at this point; comfortable, but never a sure thing. Trivia fans will note that each team had one of its players not score a single fantasy point. Tough time in the season with injuries piling up and teams desperate for a playoff spot stepping up their game.  

Stay tuned as we continue the quest to crown the first-ever SoSG Fantasy Football Champion and as we reach new lows in gametime smack talk.

Sorry I got to this so late, DB!

Mr. Customer said...

Got to go all out this week, or I'm toast. Bon chance, everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

Sax - I sent you a write-up for this late yesterday afternoon. Did you receive it?

cc: MLASC

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I didn't get anything, Dusty. Sorry.

Dusty Baker said...

Just tried to send it again to Sons' public email addy and to your lasportscene one.

Junk mail?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Still nothing.

Dusty Baker said...

You've gotta be fucking kidding me? How fucking hard is it to send a god damn email these days?

cc: ubragg

Spanky said...

*crack*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yay! I get to switch between two games that feature some of my main men.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Have you tried replying to the e-mail back-and-forth we already had?

Dusty Baker said...

I'll try that, but why on earth one simple fuckin email won't go through to the correct email address in 2010 is beyond me. I even just put plain text into the email body without worrying with an attachment.

Pissed off already this morning now.

Spanky said...

Got my two running backs going head to head and on T.V.

Dusty Baker said...

Here's an article about how NFL fantasy football is driving up ratings and popularity of the sport:

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Okay, now I've opened my email and I have three things from Dusty. WTF?

Dusty Baker said...

Vick intercepted! HAH! Suck it, dog killer.

Dusty Baker said...

#BLAMEUBRAGG

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUCK I SHOULD'VE STARTED COLLIE

Spanky said...

What the hell? Anybody else not get 10 points from their D? There it is nevermind.

Spanky said...

Brees up in dis bish

Dusty Baker said...

Easy, Spank. Easy.

Dusty Baker said...

Phiwwies/Jints is only sloppy game so far. Looks like pre-season.

Spanky said...

Excuse me.Morning coffee has me pumped up.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm spotting you Manningham today, Paul.

Spanky said...

Why did I bench Blount? Oh that's right he sucked last week. Damn.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty: sorry! Just posted the update...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Collie has more points than my entire team combined.

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like that Nate Allen guy for Phiwwy just came in at the end of the play for no reason just to be doing something, and ended up getting his cleats stuck in the turf. Bad way to learn a rookie lesson.

MeanieBreanie said...

MB up in dis bish watching her Cowboys whup up on those Redskins ;~))

MeanieBreanie said...

For the record the scoreline was whacko. I ended up beating Spankster I believe 92 - 85.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

My team sucks today.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

92-85 for the first half. You still have this week's games to get through, too!

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB - not understanding how this is working :(
One thing I do know, Spank and I are in a slugfest once again. We are currently within one point of each other.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

The first round of the playoffs combines two weeks. So the score you referenced was just for the first week. Scores from the two weeks are combined and whomever has the most cumulative points between the two of you wins. The other gets spanked.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm out. Spending the week in Palm Springs.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASC

Hope it's sunnier and drier there than it is here in LA.

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. LASC
Have a safe trip and Merry Xmas to you!

@DB - thanks for the explanation.

Spanky said...

Can I get a spanking even if I win?

Later Mlasf. Good times Bro.

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank- you are one man who will permanently be tied to the whipping post.

Spanky said...

I need some points from my running backs already.

We are tied MB....until the Redskins start laying down for the Cowboys in second half.

Dusty Baker said...

I thought the Foreskins were laying down for the Cowboys in the first half.

Spanky said...

O.K. smart ass. Until the skins start laying down AGAIN. Tough crowd, Mang.

Dusty Baker said...

Wasn't trying to be smart ass...was trying to cut down the Skins at every given opportunity.

Spanky said...

It just seems like Dallas has had the ball for the whole game. Every time I take a look at Fantasy cast they are on offense.

Dusty Baker said...

I know...they're in the Red Zone every time I look up. They must just be camped out there.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Spanky said...

Hightower you idiot.

Spanky said...

Atleast my bench RB's are kicking ass.

(cries)

MeanieBreanie said...

Crying that I left Santana Moss on the bench.

MeanieBreanie said...

What happened to Javaris James?

Dusty Baker said...

(spanks)

Dusty Baker said...

Commentators! Let it the fuck go. Reid didn't challenge it. Sheesh...move on.

(mutes)

MeanieBreanie said...

Wild Cowboys/Redskins game. Tied at 30 a piece.

Spanky said...

Easy,Dusty,Easy.

@MB-I know. I am watching that game very closely for obvious reasons.

Dusty Baker said...

(simmers down)

Dusty Baker said...

More blood on his hands points for Paul. He's making his run!

Spanky said...

Can someone break Jason Witten's legs already?!

Spanky said...

Miles Austin's legs tambien.

Spanky said...

34 points for my bench RB's. 6 from my starters.

Mr. Customer said...

Dear Fantasy Football,

I hate you for making me want the Cowboys to play well and Jay Cutler to throw three picks. That's just not right.

Mr. Customer said...

Crap, not Maclin!

Spanky said...

Oh Snap! Paul passed Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Dog Killah with 38 points. You sleep at night with that on your mind Paul?

Dusty Baker said...

Unbelievable finish for Jints. At least Vick didn't get a chance to get more pts in OT.

Mr. Customer said...

Looking for a slow day from 60 minutes and I've got a shot here.

Spanky said...

Fuck me! I shall start preparing for the spanking I'm about to receive courtesy of MB.

Spanky said...

Bang! Nice catch by B.Lloyd though.

(cries)

Mr. Customer said...

Oh dear god, will we never be free of the Tebow menace?

Spanky said...

Greinke traded to Brewers.

Mr. Customer said...

^tiny head

Spanky said...

^I thought that was Favre's nickname.

Josh S. said...

Appropriate trade, since Miller beer also has a tiny head.

Dusty Baker said...

Paul and I are tied at 195...crazy times.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm not out, but everything has to go right tonight and tomorrow to have any chance.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

How does your fantasy football team look, though?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm up 202-196 over Paul's Infamous Dog Killers. Both of us only have one player yet to play. He has Johnny Knox and I have Wes Welker. What a finish.

Spanky said...

My ass is red,I cannot sit down and MB's hand is on ice. I am a happy man.

*wipes tear*

I'm out to start a bar fight. Lates.

Dusty Baker said...

A bar fight? And you didn't ask me to go?

Spanky said...

Naty's Place on Main,Dust. Anything goes.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

No DQ? Sweet. (grabs batteries, steel chair, blackjack)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Made it to Palm Springs safely.

rbnlaw said...

Gints to sign Mota. LA finally exhales.

Steve Sax said...

@rbnlaw: best news I've heard all day

Steve Sax said...

Greinke to Brewers...interesting...

Dusty Baker said...

WHEW re Mota.

Wine status: 2005 St. Supery Cabernet Sauvignon

Homemade beef stew status: yes

Paul said...

Bring it home J. Knox.

Steve Sax said...

@DB: just read this carefully, and loved this: ...which seems appropriate given their similar season records and their ongoing banter brimming with sexual innuendo and extraneous apostrophes." LOL.

Dusty Baker said...

I put some of Tanya Harding's goons after J. Knox.
