(I really, REALLY wanted to use that headline.)
Yes, the 2010 installment of the Daily Norseman 2010 Fantasy Football League came to a conclusion when the final gun sounded at Lincoln Financial Field on Tuesday night, and we have declared a champion.
Lee Puckett and his team, "AP's 14 LB Balls," took home the title by defeating my team, the Dead Parrots Society, in the championship game. I had the lead going into the Tuesday nighter, but with Adrian Peterson yet to play for Lee's team, I knew that I was probably in trouble. Sure enough, AP put up 118 yards and a TD, and even his one lost fumble wasn't enough to keep his team from prevailing by a final count of 140 to 125.3.
Here are the score cards from this week's championship game. Dead Parrots Society on the left, AP's 14 LB Balls on the right.
There were a couple of moves that I probably could have made to give myself a few more points, but hey. . .I wasn't benching Ray Rice or anything crazy like that, Chris Cooley totally embarrassed himself by dropping a TD pass when there wasn't a guy within ten yards of him. . .but, in the end, Lee had the better team. Congratulations and kudos to him on bringing home the league trophy.
We didn't officially have a trophy or prize that we were playing for, but REVENGE4FAVRE came through in a big way with the prize completely and totally of his own volition. Big ups to him for that as well.
And, so, another edition of the Daily Norseman Fantasy Football League is in the books. How did everyone else out there do in their fantasy leagues?
