The Iron Throne (Josh Carey) defeated JB Gilpin in the semifinal 135 – 93 even though their QB, Josh Freeman, scored only 5.96 points. Dennis Pitta contributed an amazing 28 points, and of course Adrian Peterson was good for 27.2. The Bridgeburners (Tehol Beddict) advanced with a 128 – 109 upset of first place Reign Maker$ (Zorboss). Yahoo made Reign Maker$ 24 point favorites, and Tehol announced, “Looks like Beddict is finico.” But fantasy football is not played on a computer screen. Hakeem Nicks, Doug Martin, Jamaal Charles, and Darrius Heyward-Bey scored 15 for Zorboss, instead of the 62 Yahoo projected. Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick, Andre Johnson, Frank Gore, and the Seattle defense were piling up the points for Tehol. So now we get the final we all dreamed about.Please, blog, may I have some more?
