SoSG Fantasy Football: Playoffs!

I guess the way this here Fantasy Football thing works is that the playoffs start before the NFL playoffs start, which I suppose makes sense in a Bizarro-world sort of play. So here we go, to the "shazbot"-delivering Mr. LA Sports Superguy:

No, GOB Bluth is not some mystery participant. It's playoff time! After thirteen arduous weeks, dozens of waiver deals, and even a few tears, the regular season of the Sons of Steve Garvey Fantasy Football tournament has ended, and the next four men will be competing for the honor of "FANTASY CHAMPION"* for eternity.

Dusty Baker
Prof. Steve Dittmore

Mr. Customer

Paul

That's right, one of those men will be crowned champion. Dusty, who finishes first in the Eastern Division, will play Paul, the first wild card. The Professor, winner of the Western Division, will play Mr. C. Playoff rounds last two weeks; the combined score from NFL Weeks 14 and 15 will determine the victor.

For those less fortunate who could not make the playoffs, the fantasy fun doesn't end here. All six will compete in the consolation ladder**, where the same format as the playoffs will determine the final cumulative standings. I will play Karina, Spanky will play Meaniebreanie, and NicJ will play Jason.

So have fun! Enjoy the fantasies! And remember, SoSG Bowl Mania is up and running, so join now!

Notes: (*) Actual honor cannot be legally bestowed due to copyrights held by the estate of Ricardo Montalban; (**) No prize for consolation ladder winner

Wow, we're giving away no-prizes? Marvelous!

Playoffs?! PLAYOFFS?!!

(Had to be done.)

Dusty Baker said...

Had to be.

Dusty Baker said...

ESPN right now has a segment going about ESPN Fantasy Football playoffs. I feel so connected.

Mr. Customer said...

*SMACK!*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I have seven men going in the early slate of games. Karina has one. I don't know if that's good or bad.

Spanky said...

I'm going to steal Jimmy Stewart's gun and shoot Frank Caliendo with it.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This should clinch a new stadium in Minnesota. The Vikings won't stick around if they have to use that shitty stadium, and the state won't let that team leave.

Spanky said...

Then I will shoot Bradshaw.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck, in order to watch my man MJD I also have to watch the Raiders.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm gonna buy a Peyton Hillis jersey when the season ends.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Stoopid sexy Peyton Hillis.

Spanky said...

Mercedes

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

*Marcedes

Spanky said...

Looks like Ryan Torain is back.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

My team sucks. The Cleveland defense is my top scorer, that's how bad it is.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's the third fumble by Hillis today. Did someone on the Bills coat his gloves in grease or something?

Spanky said...

STOOPID FREEMAN!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

STOOPID FREEMAN INDEED

Spanky said...

What happened to Rodgers?

Steve Sax said...

Fred Rodgers? With the sweater?

Steve Sax said...

From espn: Green Bay (8-5) lost Rodgers and a game it desperately needed to win for playoff positioning. The star quarterback was knocked out in the second quarter with his second concussion this season

Spanky said...

I have mixed feelings at the moment. Brees is kicking ass for my team but he's doing it against my Rams.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 7:14a: I always get the Playoffs? clip confused with the Practice? clip

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Damn, I leave for a couple of hours and my team is actually kicking ass. What happened?

Spanky said...

Looks like Brees has gone back to his old self. Back with the INT's.

Spanky said...

My team is not good.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ditty is prjected at 64 points, while MC Customer is projected at 60.

Your playoff opponents, ladies and gentlemen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

*projected

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WTF? Did Deion Branch turn into Superman over night or something? Good fucking lord.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Here I was, thinking I finally wouldn't have a bench guy who outperformed one of my starters.

Spanky said...

Be ready to send that prize to Tiquan.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Over/under on how long it takes for Ken Wisenhunt to be fired: 2 weeks

karina said...

@Czar 55! (though I've already expressed so)

Spanky said...

You're killing me Brees.

KILLING ME!!

Spanky said...

Am I smoking crack or does P.Ditty have but a measly 7 points?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

He's got some heavy hitters going in the Sunday/Monday games though.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That DodgersUSA guy is so naive, yet he likes the Cowboys and Raiders. Makes no sense.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think by this point in the season people on the East Coast have learned they won't be seeing 60 Minutes at its originally scheduled time.

Spanky said...

Mike Wallace?

Spanky said...

I've gots the lead but for how long?

Josh S. said...

Holy crap! I'm browsing SoSG on a Kindle! It's pretty clunky (and monochromatic, natch), but it'll do in a pinch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Wow, Tim Hightower is alive. I didn't know.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S: I haven't tried browsing sosg on the kindle...how do you do it?

Spanky said...

TIM HIGHTOWER!!!!!!!!

Josh S. said...

@Sax: I'm not sure if your Kindle has it, but the one we just got (Kindle 3) has a web browser under "Experimental" on the menu. The directional key moves the cursor around the page.

Dusty Baker said...

What's going on in here?

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Nuttin'. Just enjoying a pitiful display of playoff fantasy football.

Dusty Baker said...

Ooof. Just noted the fantasy scoreboard.

Can't believe Paul continues to get points from Michael Vick - Paul, you have blood on your hands!

Mr. Customer said...

Imma say that Ditty and I will both probably exceed the total combined score of this week's matchup next week.

Spanky said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DeSean Jackson is my hero.

Paul said...

So maybe Mason will have a 4 td night, but wait i am up against him in my other league.

Damn you fantasy football!!

Paul said...

wait....what...huh???
