Lacie has been on a roll this season, crushing everyone in her path. Well, almost everyone. Laneit’s TNU remains unbeaten in two matchups against Lacie’s casus04 with a 262.26 to 220.38 win. This week, Golden Tate was the difference, grabbing 47.40 points. That’s a little less than Jordy Nelson, who led all players with 52.90 points the last time these teams met.
This is the smallest margin of victory for Laneit in two head-to-head matchups. He beat Lacie 244.78 to 185.50 in Week 2. Prior to the game Laneit told the press ” If you’ve got an ass, I’ll kick it!” I guess he meant it.
Laneit’s win ends Lacie’s three game winning streak, but with a 5-2 record she’s still in first place. Laneit holds on to fourth place with a 4-3 record. You know, it’s funny how DeMarco Murray has been getting Laneit a ton of points this season. But the three years I had Murray on my roster, he got hurt multiple times. I’ve asked the league commissioner to look into this.
In the other matchup, John’s Crusty Jugglers had another shaky performance this week and lost to Jim’s Dark12h8 179.52 to 163.06. At the start of the season John’s team looked like it had a lot of promise, but its been a rollercoaster ride for the last few weeks. They just haven’t been the same since John rewarded them with Miley Cyrus tickets. It’s as if his entire roster caught something at the show. Which let’s be honest, is entirely possible.
A win is a win, but this one tastes just a bit sweeter for Jim who gets revenge for a 208.98 to 162.52 ass kicking by John in Week 2. Crusty Jugglers was led by the tag team of Aaron Rodgers, with 52.80 points, and Le’Veon Bell, who scored 26.50. When assigning blame following this loss, Crusty Jugglers can look in the mirror, get scared, cry in a corner, until he realizes it was only a mirror.
It didn’t help matters that John had a starter with zero points (Percy Harvin). But to be fair that was due to the late trade to the Jets. A trade John was probably not aware of until he read this post. Jim is now 2-5, but remains mired in the cellar while Crusty Jugglers (4-3) stays in third place.
I’d be lying if I said this was an easy win for my team, but I’m damn proud of my guys. This week my Tacos Al Carbon (3-4) benefited from the highest score of the week from Peyton Manning to slip by the evil known as Team Furiated (4-3) 183.06 to 174.80. Tacos Al Carbon must believe that the early bird gets the worm. I scored first and went into Sunday in front 63.74 to 0.
Sadly, that lead faded away like paint in the rain by the end of the early Sunday games my guys trailed 115.38 to 102.44 and I drowned my sorrows in a bowl of Friendly’s ice cream. Furiated was a happy boy, and ordered a bottle of the finest champagne in town. However, Tacos Al Carbon delivered the last blow right to Furiated’s jugular and came out of the Sunday night game ahead by 24.76.
Even more amazing is that I was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of my 13 starters exceeding their projected points. Even Tom Brady exceeded expectations with 51.44 points. Meanwhile, Furiated left Charles Clay on the bench, where he scored 12.80 points and beat his projected point total by 124.2%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league this week. Thanks Furiated!
