Weekly Pickin's - Week 11

CHAMPIONSHIP SATURDAY


Yellow Division Championship

#3 Conquistadors @ #1 No Soup For You

How They Got Here:

Conquistadors beat #6 Bougie Ballers and #7 The BBC while most of us were still in bed.  No Soup waited for all that to filter down to them, and beat #4 Buffalo Stunner by a touchdown to reach Championship Sunday.

What To Expect:

A closer game than most think.  Conquistadors can score, but No Soup has a quality defense.  Most of that defensive prowess comes from being ahead early in games so the opposing team keeps heaving the long ball.  These two played the last week of the season, and No Soup got the win 48-46, expect a close one, but not as high scoring; Mother Nature will see to that.

Prediction:

No Soup does not want to move up, but that is not gonna matter, they are moving up. Conquistadors may join them after the 36-28 win.


Brown Division Championship

#2 Threat Level Midnight @ #1 Interdimensional Lightning Falcons

How They Got Here:

The Falcons had an easy time with #8 Fresenius B.I.G., then doubled up #4 goatSACK! to reach Championship Saturday.  Threat Level Midnight rode the hot hand of Michael Scott to a blowout of #7 Boozing and Losing and then a bigger blowout of the #6 Knights of North Buffalo.

What To Expect:

Oddly, Threat Level Midnight scored 39 points in both games last week.  The Falcons allowed a total of 22 in 2 games.  That defense will be tested this week.  These two teams did not meet in the regular season.  Threat Level Midnight is averaging almost 10 points a game more than the Falcons.

Prediction: 

Falcons are going to need all the lightning their interdimensions can bring to the field, but it may not be enough. Another Michael Scott production as Threat Level Midnight comes out on top 28-24


Orange Division Championship

#2 Losing Streak @ #1 Wanderers

How They Got Here:

The Wanderers waited for #5 Flying Pierogis to beat up #4 Sizzup Slupees before beating up those Pierogis.  Losing Streak waited while #3 Talent Juice beat #6 Totes McGoats and then used some last second magic to sneak past Talent Juice 29-27.

What To Expect:

A lot of fireworks. Both of these teams get awfully fired up for co-ed football and sometimes it can get heated.  Wanderers won a barn-burner 60-57 in Week Twoâ?¦the score might not get that high with the weather acting up.  If one team gets ahead by 2 scores, then watch out; that is when the nastiness comes up.  Probably going to need 4 refs for this one.

Prediction:

If you want to be the champs, you gotta beat the champs. Wanderers are still the class of this Division, but the gap is getting smaller. Wanderers 36-32


Purple Division Championship

#3 Shake & Bake @ #8 Labatt Blue Ballers

How They Got Here:

Shake and Bake shut out #6 Not Fast Just Furious and then squashed favorite #2 Bodak Yellow's Championship dreams 22-20 to reach the Final Game.  The Blue Ballers absolutely CURB STOMPED #1 Total Recall 42-9 before sneaking by #4 Beash Moe to be one of the few 8-seeds to make to the Final Saturday.

What To Expect:

No idea. We are not sure if the Blue Ballers are for real, or if they have to be at the new-fangled Labatt House for its' opening.  Shake & Bake has one of the better defenses in the League, and that will be a big help here.  Shake & Bake beat the Ballers 60-32 in Week Three.  Ballers need to keep their offense going; if they do not move the ball and score early, then they could just shut down.

Prediction:

The Blue Ballers are distracted by the sponsor's new digs and they are not in the game to start. It shows. Shake & Bake 38-21


Bar Challenge Championship

#1 balls deep vs #1 goatSACK!

How They Got Here:

Commissioner's Inquisition allowed goatSACK! to make up the needed point to force a tie.

What To Expect:

Full participation from the SACK!. Minimal participation for balls deep.

Prediction:

Cannot win if you do not have enough to play.  Balls deep cannot win in winner-take-all championship games. goatSACK! wins it easily.
