I've Died and Gone to Football Heaven

Postby bobbing_headz » Mon Oct 08, 2007 11:12 pm

Picture this: up by 3, my Crayton vs. his TO. Sweating it out until the final minutes when Crayton seals the deal with the TD.

Picture this: down by 14, have Folk. The last glorious play of the game Folk nails a 52 field goal to bring me back from behind.

Perfect fantasy game

Plus I get to watch an emotional roller coaster that was easily one of my top 5 finishes in recent memory.

I'm in heaven :,-( ;-)

Picture This: I play my twin brother in fantasy football this week, and I'm down by 11 points

Picture This: I have Tony Romo and Nick Folk, he has Jason Witten

Picture This: Jason Witten explodes early on, and Tony Romo IMplodes early on, causing him to gain a 24 point lead at halftime

Things heat up, Folk keeps me in the game with several field goals, and Romo continues to suck, Folk manages to keep me at a 17 point deficit.

Romo has 2 turnovers, which are -2 points each, 21 point deficit

Romo finally heats up a tad, throws the TD pass to Crayton, I can only hope Romo converts the conversion but fails...I'm thinking...my week is over, I'm down by 7.89 points

BUT WAIT!

The Cowboys recover the onside kick, there's still a chance, but I need the following to happen EXACTLY like this, and no other way, or I will lose: I need Romo to throw between a 3-9 yard pass, causing him to cross the 300 yard mark, which is a +3 bonus for me, but must not risk throwing another interception by going for the endzone, and he must NOT throw to Witten. At all... and THEN I need Nick Folk to make between a 50-59 yard field goal, which is a 5 point field goal in my league. If Folk were to kick anywhere under 50 yards, I will have lost...

Long 22 yard pass to Terrell Owens. NO. NO NO NO NO. My game is lost, Folk's field goal will be in the 40 yard mark, causing me to lose by under 1 point.

BUT!! WAIT!!

They review the play, and the catch is incomplete!!! Okay, I need a short pass between 3-9 yards and a 50 yard field goal from Nick Folk to win by .12 points.

KICK! IS! GOOD!!!!!! I win by a tenth of a point over my twin brother!!!! Nick Folk has saved my season!!!

I picked up crayton last week to fill in a bye spot, and him stealing from TO is what saved me, but it wasn't near as exciting ;-D

That must mean I've died and gone to football Hell. I was on the losing end of a similar scenario.
