FIG League Week 11 Recap

The King is dead, long live the King! For almost the entire season now, Ben's Tebow Steaks have been the only undefeated team...that is until they were defeated at the hands of Friend-of-the-Show Shaun's Hell Kitchen Daredevil's this last week.

With two games left to play, the playoff picture is still murky.  In the Westeros Conference, the Tebow Steaks are the only team to have clinched a playoff spot, while Host Tripp's Winterfell Direwolves and Former-Guest-Host Ryan's Local Yokels are mathematically eliminated.

In the Easteros, nothing has been decided yet. Even my lowly Gotham Rogues have a scenario where they could sneak into the playoffs.  

Games to watch this week:
The showdown we've been waiting for! First Place in the Easteros versus First Place in the Westeros--Friend-of-the-Show Keith's Fightin' Daleks (7-4) versus the Tebow Steaks (10-1)
Can the Gotham Rogues (4-7) keep their Wildcard hopes alive against Invisible-Friend-of-the-Show Greg's Gangnam Riders (6-5)?
The first time they met, Listener Simon's Miranda Reavers (4-6-1) and Producer Darren's Maximegalon Herrings (5-5-1) played to a tie.  This week, which team will stay in the hunt by being victorious?

FIG League Week 10 Recap

I don't want to talk about it...



Ben's still undefeated, Friend-of-the-show Keith has taken a commanding lead in the Easteros, Former-Co-Host Ryan finally won a second game and the combined record of the FIGcrew (10-19-1) is TERRIBLE.

Games to watch next week:
First and second place in the Westeros square off as Friend-of-the-show Shaun's Hell's Kitchen Daredevils (6-4) take on the Tebow Steaks (10-0).
Invisible-friend-of-the-show Greg's Gangnam Riders (5-5) and Listener Simon's Miranda Reavers (4-5-1) are wrestling for second place in the Easteros.
If Invisible-friend-of-the-show Jess' Albuquerque Pollos Hermanos (5-5) can beat Host Tripp's Winterfell Direwolves (3-7) she'll be in good position to move into a tie for second place if Shaun's team fails to end Ben's win streak.
