Why, when I was a teenager, I did all my calculus homework on a slide rule. Outside, while walking two miles through a meter of snow to my school-bus stop. Uphill, both ways.
That statement is silly, of course, but not much more ridiculous than Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell's ill-considered criticism of this week's postponement of the Vikings-Eagles game. For me, broadly speaking, it's what Tom Kinslow said over at Bleacher Report. And that's as many column millimeters as I want to blow on this.
The Middlemen also finished 9-7, pounding the Juken' Jockstraps, 127-68, in its fifth-place game.
My most valuable players:
- For the Fluttering Horde: For the second year in a row, St. Louis wideout Danny Amendola saved my skin. At the beginning of the year, the Rams tried to make him a full-time receiver, so I didn't draft him. Soon enough, though, the Rams made him their lead kick returner. I picked him up, and he delivered 10-18 points week in and week out. No one was more reliable.
- For the Middlemen: Chicago running back Matt Forte also gave me solid numbers every week, even as everyone else on the team, including the much-ballyhooed Chris Johnson, sputtered.
