I FINALLY WON A WEEK!!! Matt doubted me. JSB doubted me. But I did it! Hopefully I’ve earned my spot back in the weekly “Cold Hard Locks” title. Regardless, this week really lived up to the “Cold Hard Fails” name. Two straight weeks with one of us under .500.
Don’t worry Waldo, this week will be much, much better. Big week this week. Lehigh/Lafayette Week AND Showdown in the Thunderdome in Fantasy Football. This time, first place is on the line.
You’ll hear all about Week 12 from Matty D in later this week for Week 12’s Cold Hard Locks.
