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.
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.
