This was my (Tim’s) best season of fantasy football. I played in four leagues this year, none of them for money. Just pride, baby!
In the YouthWorks! league, I finished the regular season in 3rd place. In the first round of the playoffs, I beat Jeremy Monteith by less than one point to advance to the championship. Then Jim Rogers destroyed me by almost 100 points. I ended up in 2nd place.
In the experimental league with my college buddies and some former co-workers, I finished the regular season in 1st place. In the first round of the playoffs I got knocked off by the 4th place guy, who won the whole thing. I ended up in 3rd place.
My longest running league is a 2 player keeper league with the same guys from the experimental league. I usually finish dead last in this one, so I was excited to finish the regular season in 2nd place. I lost 2 straight in the playoffs and finished in 4th place. This was the league I cared the most about, so I was a little disappointed. At least I am not the #1 pick any more.
My last league was with Matty D and a bunch of people I don’t know. I destroyed the league in the regular season and rolled into the playoffs feeling pretty good in first place. Then I got beat by a girl and finished 3rd. Pride comes before a fall.
I also want to take an opportunity to point out that the much loved Denver Broncos have a first round bye, a home game, and a tie for the 2nd best record in the NFL. All you Broncos haters (yes, Zach Thompson, I am looking at you) can live in bitter jealousy.
