Let’s be honest, it’s Gold League so no one really cares what the playoff scenarios are except those in the playoffs in Gold League.
What everyone really cares about is the race for Piss Boy.
Currently, it would appear Skelt the Delt has this one in the bag. This is contrary to what many of you probably thought at the beginning of the season. Surely this old Delt who most of us have only read about in history books and the pages of the original charter would have a leg up on us. Surely this wise Delt who has “9” for a Pin Number (Bethany College’s original 8’s first pledge), could outsmart a bunch of ignorant fools who spend their Friday nights playing D&D and Magic the Freaking Gathering (when Skelt was a pledge Magic was only performed by Merlin and was not yet a nerdy card game). But sadly, no. He did not. With a record of 2-10 going into week 13 facing Andrej’s Enforcers with a projected deficit of over 20 points, he has locked in last place going into the playoffs.
While last place in the regular season doesn’t mean Piss Boy, averaging just under 79 points per week usually solidifies the odds of becoming the belle of the ball as Mr. Fantasy Football at next year’s draft.
I say all of this with a small bit of reluctance as, unfortunately, I account for one of the two wins that Skelt has. It came last week and that loss took me out of playoff contention. Therefore, I too could potentially take home the crown and sash we have all come to fear and become the first repeat Piss Boy.
There is also a scenario where the D League has a first time back to back Piss Boy. Kristiaan’s Red Hawks most likely will not make the playoffs (for those of you that get off on scenarios: he would have to win, Kenny would have to lose, and Kristiaan would have to outscore Kenny by 160 points). So Kristiaan will be battling for not last place with Skelt, Foster, Mesick, Little Renner, and myself.
Stay tuned, we could have our first repeat Piss Boy, our first two time Piss Boy, or it could be Skelt which would be entertaining at next year’s draft.
