This is the last regular season game of my fantasy football league and 7 out of the 10 teams have either clinched a playoff birth or can still advance to the playoffs depending on the results.
Though my top three draft picks have been less than impressive this year (RB Mendenhall, RB Gore, and QB Rivers), I am still fighting for the playoffs with a 9-4 record.
Unfortunately, my last game is against my son's team--he always seems to go on a late winning streak, and is doing just that in 2011.
Last year, all I needed was a win to make the playoffs on the last game, and I was playing the worst team in the league. Instead, I lost and my son made the playoffs instead.
Just to make his dad look bad, he even advanced to the Super Bowl only to finish as the league's runner-up.
Perhaps this year, I can take bragging rights from him.
If not, it will be another long off-season of Dad whining.
