WaFFLe CHAMPIONSHIP PLAYOFFS:
Semifinal #1, 1st vs. 4th: Mother Hen Mourinho vs. DP's All-Stars
Semifinal #2, 2nd vs. 3rd: Cahill for Jesus vs. Avalanche
It's time to put up or shut up, as the Top 4 regular season finishers enter the WaFFLe Championship Playoffs. Will the consistency of the top 3 finishers be rewarded, or can yours truly find the form that at one point resulted in a ten-week winning streak (as I recall)?
Incidentally, the final week of the regular season featured the exact same matchup, which the All-Stars dominated thanks to Agüero's hat-trick. If only he would've saved that for this weekend!

Off to see the Mariners play the Red Sox. Just missed King Felix by a day, which is a bit unfortunate. Haven't been to a baseball game in basically forever, and the M's have largely been failing to live up expectations so far ... so I'm not expecting much. But hey, that's what the beer's for, right?
Mariners win! In the bottom of the 9th! Woo!
