Quiet Dark Horse Kyle Harmon Crowned 2012 SLPL Overall Champ!!!

MLB World Series 2

Sophomore league owner Kyle Harmon of Kempin' It Real! was crowned the 2012 SLPL Overall Champion Sunday night after the San Francisco Giants finished their four-game sweep of the pitiful, anemic Detroit Tigers. "Who would have believed that Max Scherzer would have made the difference for me," Kyle said. "I was down, down, down during the Regular Season and all through the Playoffs ... I just couldn't punch through and take over first place from Strokes owner Aaron Pankoke until the very last moment. Because of Max Freakin' Scherzer. Unreal." Kyle traded for Scherzer on the last day of trading.

In addition to being crowned Overall Champ, with his win Kyle collects a cool five hundred clams from
The Pot.

Meanwhile, Deeger Dogs owner
D.Jay Andersen was crowned the Playoffs Champ after making six trades at the trade deadline and beating Kershawshank Redemption owner Joe Kelly by 41 points. For the win, D.Jay pulled $150 out of The Pot.

Here are all the official champs and final payouts for the 2012 season:

Don't forget, there's still one payout to be made for the 2012 season. If you'll scratch your synapses, the league decided at the beginning of last season to extend our
Hall-of-Fame Death Pool for each season until the beginning of the next season. This means that we will start next season by handing out a check to our final 2012 winner. No one currently leads 'cause no HOFers have expired this season, but we're hoping to catch a few quality HOF deaths between now and the beginning of next season.

Congrats to Kyle Harmon and his Kempin' It Real! and congrats to all our 2012 champs and money winners. And thanks to all of you for joining us for a most-excellent season! We look forward to seeing you all next year.

Pedregoso

Game 1 In The Books

MLB World Series 2

Game 1 is in the books and Brother Joe Livernois holds the advantage over Brother Vince Livernois as Verlander choked on the pipe while Tim McCarver spends twice the number of innings praising Verlander than Verlander actually pitched while barely mentioning Zito until Zito was removed from the game but appeared to be on the line to actually win the game. Sometime I love the Fall Classic and other times I want to throw the television out my hotel window. The issue this year? There’s another TV in the other room -- hey, it’s an Embassy Suites! -- which means I’d get stuck watching ’til the end of the game anyway, so what’s the point?

Meanwhile in SLPL action,
D.Jay Andersen’s Deeger’s Dogs have taken over 1st place in the Playoff Standings.

Giants Win Game 7; Livernois Family War Begins

MLB Postseason

The San Francisco Giants beat the St. Louis Cardinals last night in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series, setting up a monstrous showdown between brothers and SLPL owners Joe Livernois and Vince Livernois. Jay is a lifelong Giants fan and Vince is a lifelong Detroit Tigers fan. Because Jay has been alive longer, he has the slight edge to win, though that does not factor in Jim Leyland’s age.

Meanwhile, in the SLPL,
Aaron Pankoke’s The Strokes retain the Overall lead by just six points while Kershawshank Redemption’s Joe Kelly are ahead in the Playoffs standings. There are just four hittings and five pitchers left to play the World Series, which means that Fox Sports will have to dedicate at least 97 percent of its late-inning World Series coverage to Brian Wilson's antics in the Giants dugout, up from a mere 90 percent during the Championship Series.

Giants Down 1-3; Tigers Headed to World Series

Damn. The San Francisco Giants are down three games to one in the National League Championship Series.

War Of Attrition

MLB Postseason

The war of attrition is on. With so few hitters and pitchers in the playoffs, it appears that the team that bleeds the fewest points while getting the occasional hitter home run is the team that will win the Playoffs and, possibly, the Overall standings.

By way of demonstration, while everyone else in the league can’t staunch the point bleeding, Kershawshank Redemption
Joe Kelley has jumped to a big lead in the Playoffs and is making moves in the Overall standings. Joe was 267 points back and in 12th place Overall when the Regular Season ended. He is now in 6th place and 165 points behind Aaron Pankoke’s The Strokes.

After The Division Serieseses...

MLB Postseason

With the completely full-slate of Division Serieseses complete, Aaron Pankoke’s The Strokes still maintain the Overall lead while D.Jay Andersen’s Deeger's Dogs are ahead in the Playoffs standings. This will be an interesting final two rounds of playoffs given that only ten hitters and eight pitchers remain on playoff rosters.

Remember, points go up again for the League Championship Series to:
. Hitters earn 50 points for every home run hit
. Hitters lose 5 points for every K
. Pitchers earn 5 points for every K
. Pitchers lose 25 points for every homer surrendered

With three remaining hitters and two remaining pitchers, can Aaron maintain his Overall lead? With five hitters and three pitchers in the League Championship Series, can DJay overtake him or even retain his own Playoffs lead? Will some dark horse make a dark horse move and overtake both Aaron ad DJay. Strap ‘er in. We’re in for a fun ride.

Sunday Morning WTF!?!? Regular Season Leaders Not Letting Up

MLB Postseason

The fun thing about the SLPL’s playoffs -- usually -- is that they offer a chance for teams who didn’t win much during the Regular Season to come storming back and make hay during the postseason. If the first few days of this season’s playoffs are an indication, however, this postseason may not be as fun as we would like.

Aaron Pankoke’s The Strokes and Alec Puente’s Icepuente’s Sun Devils, who finished 1st and 3rd in the Regular Season, have scored 42 points so far and lead in the Playoffs standings. They are now 1st and 2nd in the Overall standings. Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, Regular Season leaders, you can’t allow some of the season’s also-rans a chance at a little fantasy baseball glory?!?! Seriously, Aaron Pankoke and Alec Puente, WTF?!?!

Sunday Morning WTF!?!? What Horserace?

Concluding our week’s worth of Sunday Morning WTF!?!? as penance for missing last Sunday’s WTF!?!? ...

While the horserace the last few weeks has been fun as all get out,
Past Champ Aaron Pankoke, owner of The Strokes, is now putting some distance between himself and Alec Puente, owner of Icepuente’s Sun Devils, which means the final days of the season might not be nearly as exciting as we were hoping. Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, Aaron Pankoke?!? We know you’d rather avoid the drama and win this thing easily, but the rest of us want an epic, dramatic ending that goes down to the wire while we pull out our hair and chew our fingernails to nubs. I mean, seriously, WTF?!?!

Meanwhile, Alec lost a even more ground to
Kyle Harmon’s Kempin' It Real!, who are now just four points out of 2nd place after yesterday’s action. There are just four days left in the Regular Season.

Tuesday Morning WTF!?!? All NFL Replacement Refs Are Referee Pitman

Since we started the week without a Sunday Morning WTF!?!?, howzabout we make up for it by having a week full of WTFs?

This morning’s WTF comes courtesy of the NFL, who still hasn’t settled the labor dispute with referees despite the fact that Mitt Romney, a la John McCain in 2008, is asking to halt the campaign until this travesty of a season is resolved. It turns out that the NFL is now fielding a team of Referee Pitmans for every game. Who’s Referee Pitman, you ask? He was the SNL character of our favorite skit of the past lotsa years, played by John Goodman, who had a weekly show and fielded questions like this from the audience:

Audience Member #3: Yeah, uh, hi, great show. I saw the last game, and I just want to know, do you find it helpful to keep your head up your rear end? I mean, why during the game? It seems that during the game you want to have your head, you know, out and in the open air so you can see the plays. I mean, is it comfortable, or is it for the warmth, or what?

Rock Clark: How about it, Ref? Your head inside your rear end?

Referee Pitman: [ thinking ] No. No, nope, never done that. I wouldn't even know how to go about it, it's an interesting position, but, uh. nope.

Rock Clark: Okay, apparently not. But good question. ...

Audience Member #4: I was just curious - what's in your head, you know, since there's no brain? I mean, is it empty, or is it filled with, say, human excrement?

Rock Clark: I think I can handle that one, Ref. The Ref does have a brain, otherwise he wouldn't be able to conduct this interview right here. That's how I know. I mean, it's basic high school biology. So the excrement question is irrelevant.

Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, National Football League, are you going to settle this dispute and bring the real refs back or not!?!? I mean, seriously, WTF?!?!

In SLPL action,
Aaron Pankoke’s The Strokes are holding onto their Overall lead over Alec Puente’s Icepuente’s Sun Devils after yesterday’s action with just nine days of Regular Season left.

It's Friday, Friday … And We're Going Dark

We love this GIF ‘cause it’s Friday, Friday, BOOM!

Friday
It’s Friday, Friday!!!


Anyway, I know we’re heading down the final length of the season and this is not a good time to say this, but: we’re going dark. I’m headed to North Carolina to attend former Carrboro T-Birds co-owner Ben Thornburg’s Bar Mitzvah.

Ben
Mazel tov, Ben!


Ben is the son of Carrboro T-Birds owner
Brian Thornburg, who between planning the Ben’s Bar Mitzvah is lamenting the fact that the Nats are closing down Stephen Strasburg’s season September 12th. Brian’s T-Birds are currently in 22nd place Overall.

While we say we’re going dark, we may -- hotel Internet connection willing -- be able to post up low-rent Overall standings right here on this page. (That would mean we won’t be updating any other page on the site.) Though it won’t be the full-featured site to which you have become accustomed, it’s something. Wish us luck. And if we’re not successful posting to this page, just hang loose ’til next Monday, when everything should be fully up and running again.

BTW, you probably didn’t realize this, but the Santa Lechuga Power League tries to have a representative available at every one of its owners major life events. Have a kid who’s having a Bar Mitzvah? We’ll be there, camera in hand. Getting married? We’ll officiate. Did you pass away? We’ll be a pall bearer. Buying a new car? We’ll help you negotiate so that you get the undercoating for free. Why do we do this for our owners? Because, like we said when we were trying to get you to join the league,
we don’t want you to get lost in the crowd. That’s just the kind of fantasy league we run.

Mazel tov!

I Love My Neighbors, But When I Didn't ...

There was a time -- before I got my dog -- when my neighbors couldn’t stand me. I don’t know why having a dog made me more palatable to talk to, interact with, or be nice to, but since getting Fred I have apparently become a human in their eyes and everyone has decided I’m okay. Which is cool by me.

Having said that, if someone had told me six years ago, pre-Fred, that I could have one of these Squirrelapults, I would have spent all my free time setting the bait and launching live squirrels at my neighbors’ houses. Just saying.

Awesome Squirrelapult

(Ohhhh … now I get it! As I was typing those words about wanting to launch live squirrels at my neighbors’ houses, I realize that that’s probably why they didn’t like me for all those years! I can be a little slow on the uptake sometimes.)

I Would Be Kicking Too

Before feeling sorry for Esperanza Furrow, SLPL Commissioner Rube Furrow’s wife, you must focus on those sleeve gloves she’s wearing. Yeah. See, those arms are going more-than-elbow deep where you think they might be going. So if you are a cow or steer and you see Esperanza wearing shoulder-length gloves, you put two and two together and, at the very next opportunity, you give the ol’ broad a good, old fashioned whack. Tell me you wouldn’t. (Incidentally, that is Rube in the background. True to form, he doesn’t help his wife at all but instead makes room for her to fully complete her fall.)

Take Off the Gloves, Esperanza!

Bunny Honey Wears Lettuce Bikini

The Santa Lechuga Power League has nothing to do with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, but we fully support their annual “Dress Up A Super Model in Leafy Greens” campaign, which has something to do with promoting vegetarianism or some such. Heck, we would fully support this campaign if PETA decided to do it weekly. This year’s campaign features Bunny Honey Sheridyn Fisher. We don’t know who she is, but we suspect that that’s sort of besides the point.
