And the finals are here!  Congrats to Barking BassetHounds knocking me off and Breaking Batum pulling off the upset as the 6 seed beating #2 Martyball.  David vs. Goliath final!  Sheesh, I was going to say I think I had a great team minus the injuries, but I would’ve been bludgeoned by both Batum and Martyball as well!  My comeback this year was an illusion…  “Magic tricks are what whores do for money…. OR COCAINE!”  Good luck to our finalists, and here’s how the semi-finals of the REL playoffs went down in the Razzball Elite League:

The semis are here!  20 teams enter, 4 remain, and somehow I bested Slim this year!  Although, he did win the title last season, and I am easily an underdog against the 1 seed…  In the quarterfinals, I was able to knock off Scurry to the Left in a revenge game from a earlier regular season loss, and Breaking Batum bested Slim.  After staying healthy most of the year, Slim got all his injuries late!  Total flip flop on the phrase “better late than never”.   Good luck to the 4 teams remaining, and here’s how the quarterfinals of the REL playoffs went down in the Razzball Elite League:

I’m like a kid in the candy shop!  The Playoffs have been decided, and through many strokes of luck and by the handjob of a higher force, I was able to sneak in.  Four teams vied for the final three spots, with the four teams separated by a single game.  It was a photo phinish!  Martyball and BassetHounds grabbed the byes with Slim facing off against Breaking Batum and I’ll be against Scurry to the Left.  After this week we’ll only be recapping the playoffs, so good luck to the playoff bound and it should be a fun postseason!  Here’s how the rest of week 20 went down in the REL:

We’re gonna have a fun Week 20! My first-half-terrible squad indeed rolled through a schedule-friendly second half to pull a half game out of the 6th playoff spot.  Breaking Batum has a light matchup as well, so I have to out-win the Batums…  Ugh…  Then there’s Kap’s Team who has suffered a lot of injuries 3 games ahead of me and 2.5 ahead of Batum.  As KG would say, “anything is possible!”  In our final week of the regular season, we had one of the biggest weeks of free agent adds as well.  Many were picked up for $0, so it was a beggar’s market! Here’s how the rest of week 19 went down in the REL:

Playoff spots, berthed!  Like a dog having its litter under the porch, the Barking BassetHounds and Martyball both clinched playoff spots with the Hounds moving into a 1 game lead. We need to eschew the Baha Men’s 1-hit wonder for the Hounds theme music!  Both squads are shoe-ins for bye weeks, with a pretty clear 6 vs. 7 race for the final playoff spot between me and Breaking Batum.  I’m gonna slip his team some of that Ricin!  Too mean?  Here’s how the rest of week 18 went down in the REL:

Through another All-Star Break shortened week, and Martyball and the BassetHounds don’t wanna be separated!  Both with 5-4 wins to remain tied for the #1 seed, while the race for that 6th playoff spot heats up.  We had one of the hottest weeks on the wire post-trade deadline with some owners making it rain with their FAAB, and here’s how the rest of week 17 went down in the REL:

We’re through the break and nearing the REL playoffs, with the dogfight for that #6 playoff spot heating up.  I have the Slam Dunk champion on my team, do I get any bonus points?!  Those relentless BassetHounds and Martyball both remain tied at the top, now 11 games over the field.  Looking like our bye week winners and spots 3-5 are fairly locked up!  But you know what happens when you assume…  You make a Brandon BASS out of you and me!  Here’s how the rest of week 16 went down in the REL:

We have a new fearless leader!  The Barking BassetHounds with a 7-2 win catches them up with Martyball – IFBL for a tie at first.  And we thought Marty would never be caught!  On the other end of the playoffs, now there’s 7 teams within 4 games of each other vying for the #6 playoff spot.  It’s class warfare!  The fatsos up top gliding in and all us poor people scratching and clawing to stay alive!  Here’s how the rest of week 15 went down in the REL Dynasty League:

And the league tightens up!  Our once dominant Martyball has struggled of late, losing 4-5 to me two weeks ago and picking up a 3-6 loss to Mr. Green in week 14.  Super Green!  Martyball is still our #1 seed, but only a 2 game cushion over the BassetHounds and down to a single-digit lead over spots 2-4.  That #6 seed for the REL playoffs is wide open!  Here’s how the rest of week 14 went down in the REL:

Woooo!  Huge upset in the REL as my team of crapsticks somehow managed to eek out a 5-4 victory over the almighty behemoth that is Martyball.  Talk about lucky timing!  Even with the loss, Martyball has a huge lead on the field, with a 3.5 game lead over 2nd and a 9.5 lead over 3rd.  Martyball is just trying to make it interesting!  Here’s how the rest of week 13 went down in the REL:
