The Diary of a Fantasy Virgin – Week 16

It is playoff time and my Cromwell Demolition is battling for 9th place in a 10-team division.  I cannot even win the playoff Bucket Bowl.  That would be for the last 4 teams in my division.  For everyone who has been following my team this year, let me give you a hint as to how I did.    I did not play WR Calvin Johnson.  What does that mean?  You know what that means.

9th Place!

The Cromwell Demolition goes out on a high note with a victory in the last game of the season for my team.  Last year, I played in the championship and lost.  Oh, how the year changes dramatically.  It is important to reiterate that I only play one team.  I am in only one league.  All of my energy is devoted to this one team and I churned out the team this year.  I had 5 new players that were not drafted or on my team in Week 1 playing on my team this last week of the year.  So the year ends and I am in 9th place, but why?  It is time for the breakdown.

Cromwell Demolition – 2015

The season just did not start off well.  I got off to an 0-2 start and I declared that I would dedicate, re-dedicate and over-educate to get my team to .500 or above.  No less than 4 times I played a game to get to .500 and all 4 times I was defeated.  There were two games I wanted to get back and in each I just did not play the right players for the moment.  But I was at a Walt Disney World Resort and sometimes distractions are real.  But it was not all bad.  The Cromwell Demolition pulled in players and ended the year with a victory.  In the irony of all ironies, I end the year with a record of 7-8.  It is the 5th and last time I am 1 game under .500.  There are no more games to get to .500, so I will leave 2015 with a losing record and by far the worst performance in several years.  When luck runs out … pun intended … he was taken #1 in our draft … it runs dry.

Drier than a well stuck in a desert desperately pining for precipitation.
