What a long, strange trip it's been

Well this isn't how we wanted to go out. But after the rough season we've had, it feels almost appropriate.

What a long, strange trip it's been

Well this isn't how we wanted to go out. But after the rough season we've had, it feels almost appropriate.

A pathetic 27th-place finish. That wouldn't be so terrible, except there were only 29 entries this week.

Our big winner this week was 'redbeard', who took home $70 dollars thanks to a big week from Aaron Rodgers and solid play from nearly everyone else on his roster.

Rounding out our money winners were 'timmyd' in second place, 'mookie4me' in third and 'chipotle' in fourth.

Thanks to everyone else who played this week, and all season. Hopefully they don't replace us with guys who can actually win and we will be back next season to defend our honor. We wish it was a title we were defending, but at least we are walking away with some honor, however little there may be.

In the mean time, we will continue to run our NBA Beat the Expert Challenge and our NHL Challenge once a week.
