The Arsyholiks (my fantasy baseball team) are teetering on the brink of elimination from the semi-finals of my fantasy baseball league. This is somewhat disappointing to me (not so to the First Lady as she won’t have to see me check out the fantasy stat tracker any longer). The fate of my squad and their impending doom this evening is so sad that even James Vanderbeek of Dawson’s Creek fame is affected by this news (see the above picture for verification).
The Arsyholiks backed into first place in the regular season (which netted me tidy little purse) by edging out The Lord Of The Swings. We actually ended up tied but through the magic of Yahoo I somehow won the tie breaker, thus awarding me the league title. (Again the normally supportive wife, The First Lady, disputed my victory and claims I should be the 2nd place winner. She can’t always be right. Right?)
The glory of the Arsyholiks magical run to the top rung of the fantasy ladder is coming to an end today. I’m writing the death notice now as a way to reverse the fantasy jinx that seems to be hovering over my team this week. There’s a few games to go and it doesn’t look good for my squad. As we speak I’m losing 6-5 and I desperately need to summon some extreme luck from the fantasy baseball gods for a couple of clouts from Mark Texiera, Hideki Matsui or Ryan Ludwick. But it doesn’t look like it’s to be. So congrats to Igor, otherwise known as the Croatian Sensation on his impressive run this week. The Croatian Sensation was bang on each and every transaction this week and is mos def a worthy winner.
Until next year my friends. I imagine a collective sigh by all of my 9 readers who no longer have to read about the trials and tribulations of my fantasy football league. Though did I mention that I play fantasy football, hockey, cricket and bowling.
