Fantasy Football 2013: week 8


Life’s been keeping my entirely too occupied; which I’ll post about soon enough (for those who don’t know why I live for November).

What’s interesting about this recap?  The same team I lost to was the same team I defeated this.  Talk about something zany.

All the weeks shall be added in the order they should have been…before I make my overdue announcement.  Have some patience with me…

[For the record, my teams are Half Measure and Flippy Flop.]
