Let's check in with Mr. LA Sports Thing:
It's been a month since the 2011 NFL season began, and the SoSG season is in full swing as well. Out of eighteen teams, only two are undefeated. What excitement transpired last week? Here's a little taste of the action.
Prof. Dittmore 86 (3-1) - Mr. LA Sports Czar 57 (1-3): Ditty continues to rebound from his opening week loss, getting his third straight win, thanks to 16 points from Vincent Jackson and 15 points from Matthew Stafford. I fell apart, with BenJarvus Green-Ellis as my only man in double-figures with 13 points.
Josh S. 121 (4-0) - Meaniebreanie 38 (0-4): Josh gets a win that's easier than Neeebs' Mom and remains hot, while MB is…not. Seven of Josh's nine players reach double-digits, led by Wes Welker and the Jets' D with 21 points each. Nobody could get more than eight for MB, whose only solace is her team in some other league.
Spanky 80 (2-2) - Mr. Customer 74 (2-2): Spanky moves up to tie with Mr. C for third in the Rancho Ardiendo division as a result of a 32-point outburst from the Ravens' D. Andy Dalton's 18 points and Jason Witten's 15 were not enough for Mr. C.
Karina 108 (3-1) - Steve K 96 (1-3): Steve K had a strong showing, but Karina managed to finish on top in the battle of the Ks. Tavaris Jackson and Calvin Johnson both had 21 points for Karina, and Ray Rice added 18. 31 points from Cam Newton and 22 from Arian Foster went in vain for Steve K.
Loney Fan 94 (2-2) - Central Valley Fan 72 (0-4): CVF will have to keep looking for that first win of the season after LF brought the heat; Beanie Wells dropped 31 points and Matt Forte added 28 to the winning effort. CVF lost, despite 17 points from Philip Rivers and 16 from Dwayne Bowe. Neeebs' Mom
Fernie V 99 (3-1) - NicJ 93 (3-1): FV delivers Nic his first loss of the season. Michael Turner's 20 points and Tony Romo's 19 paved Fernie's way. 19 points from both Jimmy Graham LeGarrette Blount went for naught for Nic.
QuadSevens 79 (2-1-1) - rbnlaw 27 (2-2): Ouch! Q7's average showing was more than enough to dispatch rbn. Eli Manning and Steve Smith both had 18 points for Quad, while the Titans' D had 12 points for rbn.
Paul 123 (1-3) - Wicks 82 (0-3-1): It's easy as 1-2-3 for Paul, who gets his first win of the year, while Wicks is still on the outside looking in. 26 Pierre Garcon points gave Paul a firm footing, and Matt Ryan added 17. Josh Freeman's 23 points couldn't get the job done for Wicks.
Dusty Baker 107 (4-0) - Jason 59 (2-2): Dusty keeps on winning, thanks to a 45-point outburst from Aaron Rodgers, with Hakeem Nicks throwing in 22. Jason also had a solid game from his quarterback (29 points from Michael Vick), but none of his other men could reach double figures.
Week 5 match-up's in store: MLASC vs. MB, Spank vs. Ditty, Josh vs. Mr. C, Karina vs. CVF, FV vs. Steve K, Nic vs. LF, rbn vs. Wicks, Neeebs vs. Q7, and Paul vs. DB.
The second month of play is upon us. Who will be left in the dirt, and who will continue to ride high? And even if you can't play in the postseason, I've got a game brewing for everyone left in the consolation ladder. More on that later…
