WINNER AND STANDINGS: WEEK 7
Contrary to popular belief, McNabb losing his lunch was due, not to over-exertion, but to watching the entire 3rd quarter of the Redskins/Colts game. The same quarter of football caused me to ralph too, although my placement was not as good as McNabb's. My fiance was not happy when she came home and saw how I had redecorated the couch.
For those (few) of you who either don't live in Philly or don't follow the Eagles, Donovan McNabb's puking on Sunday gave creedence to Terrell "A million different kinds of crazy" Owens' claim about blowing chunks in the Superbowl. This time there was no hiding it, as McNabb horked in the middle of the field before a play. This did not prevent him from throwing up some pretty touchdown passes. Aside from hurling a few pesky interceptions returned for touchdowns, McNabb played pretty well. Still, it was not enough to stop the great Matt Bryant, who I swear waited on me at Chi-Chi's last year, from booting a 62 yard field goal to win the game at the end of regulation.
This set off a chain reaction of barfing all over the Philadelphia region. Still, it was nothing compared to the upchuck flowing through the streets of the Venerable District of Columbia where Redskins fans everywhere collectively retched. Alas, I could not spew with my fellow Redskins fans, and was reduced to vomiting alone. Also of note, I have a pet yak!
So, now to the real reason you're here, the final standings for Week 7!!!!
Zack Klein 7-6
Joshu Shih 6-7
Matthew Kory 5-8
Bill Denton 4-9
Thats right! I finished second to last!!
Oh, also the winner of Week 7, and all the hard core booty that comes with it.... ZACK KLEIN!!! Congratulations, Zack! Zack beat out Karl Vaillancourt, who finished with the same piss-poor record of 7-6, by picking 40 MNP (Monday Night Points) to Karl's 37. The actual MNP was like a billion or something. Whatever. Anyway, it was way over what both guys picked, so the closer of the two is Zack.
For his Week 7 victory, Zack wins the only slightly coveted NY Mets: 2006 National League Champions ballcap! Yay! (wait... they lost??) No, unfortunately, Zack wins the Weekly Standard Prize of $52! Personally I'd donate it all to the Republican Party.
Also of note, Zack is the first person in the history of MFSAFP(p!)! to break the $100 barrier. He's taking your money, Dave! Hey! Dave! Wake up, Dave...
As Bill likes to say, this past week was a shit-filled turd. I don't honestly know what that means, but it sounds appropriate. In any case, there was further stratification in the overall standings, so some of you (like me) are going to have to pick up the pace if you wanna stay with... my brother? Crap!
The full season standings, through Week 7 are as follows:
1. Sandy Kory 65-35
3. Jon Stover 64-36
4. Matthew Mariam 63-37
6. Matthew Kory 62-38
11. Dave Labowitz 59-41
12. George Smith 58-42
It looks like some people (not me) are starting to pull away from the pack a bit. Damn them! Also, since exactly 100 games have been played its pretty easy to compute your winning percentage on the year. You know, if you can, like, add or something. So, congrats again to Zack. Stay tuned here, as I'll be posting Week 8 (featuring no Redskins loses!) soon.
