Red Zone Wrap-Up (Week 5)

Houston InfernoSo far this season, I’ve made all the right moves on a week-to-week basis as head coach of the Spooky Boogeymen. I’ve consistently been able to put my best players on the field, and I’ve made some decent pick-ups from the waiver wire. Unfortunately, I’ve sucked as general manager of the Spooky Boogeymen. After a great deal of consideration, I elected to keep headcase Terrell Owens from last year’s team instead of Donovan McNabb, and that decision has finally come back to bite me in the ass. The Houston Inferno, lead by Donovan McNabb, handed the Boogeymen our first loss of the season with a convincing 95-70 victory. The Inferno right now look more like an all-star squad than anything else, fielding a team this past weekend having seven of the starting nine positions ranked no lower than fourth in the league. I’m considering filing a petition with the FTC accusing the Inferno of being an anti-trust monopoly. :-P

The Springfield Bullhawks earned a 1-point victory over the Shelbyville Outkasts 86-85. The Bullhawks had to wait until late in the game Monday night for Javon Walker to catch his last pass for a 63 yard/6 point total putting the Bullhawks over the top.

The Peoria OrangeCrush took advantage of a weak outing by the Kentucky Mad Max for a 78-39 win. The 39 point total ties the PowerPuff Girls for low game score, potentially earning some money back at the end of the season (hypothetically speaking).

Speaking of which, the Petersburg PowerPuff Girls earned their first win of the season this week beating the Foreign Bodies 71-61. Both teams are now 1-4.

The Batavia Bulldogs won a close game against the P’burg PrairiePride 65-62. Kicker Adam Vinatieri was a surprise scratch for the PrairiePride.
