Week 24 – I Can See Clearly Now. Sorta.

It’s not crystal clear, but things are starting to align;

  • GoJo had the big week with 35, but Fulty’s 33 helped him go 3-0 and grab hold of first again
  • Cordy, Derko, & Rolphy all stumbled
    • Cordy got a grand total of “zero” from his goalies
    • Derko still sits in 3rd, 2 points up on Rolphy
    • Rolphy & Derko each lost to Fulty
  • Fulty’s number to clinch is 5 – either his wins or Cordy’s losses
  • EZ, T-Man and Vinny all went 3-0
  • Erty, T-Man & GoJo are in a tight battle for 5th with only 5 points separating them
  • JBR took the season series over Stifler 4-2

Ever wonder how big & bad the Big, Bad Bruins” really were.

A few big boys: Hodge, Bucyk, O'Reilly, but I'm sure a guy named "Carol" leaned how to fight pretty quick.
