That was, and I believe this is the correct way to put it, The Week of TEH SUCKAGE™.
Looking over the weekly stats, it seems that Beth smoked everyone, even the reliably excellent Lavaland. Mr. E Man (cleverly disguised here as “arkmennis”) is doing a bit better than usual, Cath’s in the middle, and the rest of you are here, there, and everywhere.
With a couple of obvious exceptions, of course. Bob, often near the top of the standings despite his tendency to pick only players with excessive numbers of i’s and u’s in their surnames, had a pretty dismal week. And then there’s me. I have no idea what happened, especially considering that I actually led the whole shebang for half a day or so last week.
If nothing else, this highlights how variable things are this early in the season – single weeks can bounce people all around the standings, and this week I’m back near the top again.
Here are the overall standings for the past two weeks, in glorious Excel ugliness. Please ignore the flabby slope representing my results.
