As in Fantasy Football. It was the first round of the playoffs and I finished the season on a 3 game losing streak. So I had gone from 7-2 to 7-5 and barely missed getting a bye. At one point Sunday I was behind 100 to 30. When I saw that I figured my streak would be 4 and I'd be done. My most promising season would come to an abrupt end.
But Matthew Stafford threw for over 400 yards, New Orleans defense played well, my coach won and I got TD's from 2 others. So by the time Sunday was over it was 103 to 96. And I still had a running back, Mathews (SD) and kicker, Scobee (JAC) left and my opponent just had his kicker, Novak (SD). My bench kicker Folk from the Jets, yes "my Jets" had 11 points so if I'd played the right guy I would be winning instead of losing. Still I knew if I could get a good day from a RB I could still win.
I had to sweat it out until garbage time when Mathews rumbled 21 yards into the end zone and was suddenly up 114 to 111. Yikes that is close. The rest of the game was just a bunch of three and outs so I was in. A big comeback for Team Mike.
If things could go right I may be able to replace my broken plasma TV with a new flat screen. I already have my eyes on a Sony 48 inch. But I should not get ahead of myself.
