Thunderblog NFL Cold Hard FAILS: Week 13 Edition

Week 13 came and went very quickly. Apologies for not having the LOCKS up in time, MPD was still upset that he defended his fantasy title finishes 9th out of 10 teams. I didn’t do much better at 8th, but my team an injury-ridden piece of garbage so I’ll take it (and not last). The FAILS are making another Wednesday appearance due to MPD and myself playing in a men’s league hockey game Monday night where we combined for 4 goals (3 from yours truly) and 3 assists. That dominate performance was followed up by our coed IM football team putting up a goose egg last night, so I guess the FAILS made some sort of Tuesday appearance…

I’m starting to separate myself from MPD in Pick’em. I’m up four games overall and four weeks with four to go. A Dormie for those of you familiar with match play in golf. What a win by the Eagles! Glad I got that pick wrong but it was hard to pick them given the resumes in front of me. With the Cowboys winning, the Birds are tied three-ways with the Giants and Redskins and have a 43% chance of taking the East according to
