Real and Fantasy Football update - regular season week 2
The second week of the regular season is now officially over, and Frank Summers is still officially a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but hasn't run the ball or caught a pass yet.
And the Steelers lost this week in a lackluster performance on the road against the Chicago Bears.
In Fantasy Football, the Mutant Mercenaries took a serious pounding, scoring less points than any team in the league this week, underperforming the projected score by 44 points and losing by 60 points.
As for my blood relatives also in the league, my nephew Adam's team, KennyPowersIsGod, got in the win column for the first time, beating the team that was the best in the league in the first week, getting some family revenge by beating the team that beat his dad's team in the first week. Adam's dad, my brother Michael, managed the 11th best team in the league this week, and since he didn't have the good fortune of playing the 12th best team in the twelve team league (that would be mine), his squad the Hornets fell to defeat for the second week.
My upcoming opponent is Adam's girlfriend Liz. Her team, Ashley Shaffer BMW, is undefeated and the Mutant Mercenaries are going to have to bring it strong or get their heads handed to them again. I will be conferring with head coach Omar Little as to the best strategy for who to play and who to put on the bench this week. Expect some changes.
