Another football Saturday in the books. Week 2 did not disappoint in that our honeymoon period of no drama and controversy has ended. In walking around the fields this past week I heard a fair number of grumblings about bad calls and some on-field bickering amongst players. Now it’s sounding like football Saturday. Let’s take a look at some games.

Since I wasn’t about to be at the Rose Garden at 9 (maybe later in the season) I asked around to find out how the Breakfast Club games were going. Word was the captains have been betting on the games amongst themselves, not for money or glory (although glory is usually included) but for alcohol and bras. Enter the Brall of Shame. Emily Curry took it upon herself to encourage friendly wagers by giving stage to these prizes as they are won. Week 1, EmC Hammer Time and Peanut Butter Kelly Time placed the first bra bet which Emily won and of course Kelly made good by giving Emily her bra. Photographic evidence of this event is documented on the Brall of Shame. This week, all the other captains joined in the fun. Hot TaMolly’s and Peanut Butter Kelly Time had another bra bet which the TaMolly’s won (Kelly’s going to have a make a trip to Dick’s pretty soon if this keeps up). Natural Born Kellers and Bern Them All had a bucket of beer as well as a bra and underwear on the line. Apparently BTA captain Val tagged QB Travis in to cover BTA’s side of the bet. Katie Keller made good at the bar later in the day by adding her bra to the Brall. In the Emily v Emily matchup the stakes were a little different as it was a poem on the line. Schilling Em Softly came away with the win so Emily Curry graciously marched right to the bar to construct a very profound poem which can be seen on the Brall as well. I, for one, hopes this continues throughout the season.

During the Bullet Club/Energy Buff game, BC appeared to have no rust to speak of after their bye last week. Along with looking snazzy in their new jerseys (ironically highly patriotic despite their namesake coming from a Japanese wrestling team), they dominated the first half. Jeff Easton was MIA so Travis took the helm at QB. Energy Buff’s defense struggled as Bullet Club continued to march down the field. Gordon even kept his composure the whole first half and was rewarded with some touchdowns and deep balls. Ben Stack we can’t say the same for as he had several outbursts regarding his team’s lack of defense. They did get it together to make it a game in the second half.

Morning Wood came up against 3rd and Schlong and did NOT come out on top. They were shut out 0-26 and looked to be completely out matched. Poor Dave, not how you want to spend your birthday. MW lost Rachel Parker and had Jill Dibble playing for them. They had athletes but could not match up against the guys of 3&S. The real tall guy was Mossing guys all over the place and a defensive nightmare, Scott Sr was slinging and Scott Jr. showed off his QB ability by dropping a dime for a TD after a pitch back from dad. It was majestic. Dave and Mo need to start getting down to business before this season gets away from them.

Most notably in the End Game/Cobblestone matchup, league icon Daryll was not present to lead his team. Instead Ferger stepped up to take the reins and well things didn’t go too well. End Game put up 49 points with everyone’s favorite up-and-coming “it” girl Steph balling out. Some advice, keep an eye on this girl, she’s making shit happen. The other girl on EG (not Emily Schilling, she wasn’t there), came to play as well and even stepped in at QB.

At 11:00, 1 Todd Too Many played Public Enemy in the latter’s second game of the day. During an interview with Topper he stated they “almost had them”. Good for you Topper, keep up the good work. Pete returned to the field and demonstrated to us all that he has not lost a step with some unreal catches. Brandy has been playing lights out lately in all her games, seriously a force to be reckoned with. PE picked up Mcgrath in the off season who will continue to add to their dominant offense. I’m sure Cole was anxious about maintaining his current position at #1 for the QB ranking. I hope the pressure doesn’t get to him…

Also at 11:00, Money Ball and A&A took the field for what proved to be the brightest game of the day (because of the jerseys). MB showed improvement from last week but still need to work on their chemistry if they hope to get a win this season. From what I heard from the sidelines it sounds like MB may have too many alpha males. A&A was missing the majority of their squad as I recognized approximately 3 people from the team. Whoever these other players were seemed to respond to Matty Ice’s run and gun offense. Tensions did start to get high by the second half but A&A came away with a 30-22 win.

TMA played the Bambs over on field 5. While I’m sure TMA was glad to have Ferger back they did not have the speed in their receivers to match up. I see this being a huge issue for them throughout the season. TMA was missing Drunk Meg and Val so they ran with Diana and Diane. Also - they've GOT to get Andy off of defense. Nice kid, but he's always on the bad end of a bomb for a touchdown. At least they didn't seem to fight with Billy this week - plus side?

At noon, Gryffindor made their season debut against Title Shot. Joey Batts was at QB with brother Anthony playing receiver. Gryffindor was missing long time vet Sarah Barnes and seem to have brought in a new blonde girl that showed some serious potential. Hopefully Sarah’s absence was only temporary but new girl can play. Glasses guy made himself available in the middle and anyone that has played against Joey knows he loves taking those 10 yard plays all game. Title Shot may be “seasoned” but they sure do know the game. Dubey made it out 2 weeks in a row and Tommy Hughes and Rogo led play calling for the Senior Squad. Devon and newly married Jill were back in the game and showed us that they haven’t lost a step. Unfortunately for Gryff, Joey Batts had to leave at halftime and left the game in the hands of Anthony. Anthony had some serious trouble hitting his wide open targets and did not know how to contend with Devon on defense. Despite being up at the half, TS took the W by game’s end. I don’t expect to see Anthony on the QB Power Rankings this week.

Ultimate Warriors played Slytherin That End Zone, who came into this game immediately following a loss to All We Do Is Quinn. Ultimate Warriors are a smart team and they know how to take what they are given. They have height, speed and solid girls and will use all of those things to their advantage. SITE was out for vengeance. Gary took control of his team and made some highlight reel catches on the sidelines. The guy with the neon long sleeve shirt and the bald guy also had a big games. Newman quieted the murmurs that last week was a fluke by putting up 39 points. SITE is a team to contend with this season.

Full Throttle played Puckett All-Stars in a game that ended up being won by a difference of 8 points but felt close the entire time. Even though the Godfather claimed PAS was the “better team”, FT came out to prove him wrong and succeeded. I will say both teams had some serious athletes. Deep balls were plentiful in this game and both teams were fairly evenly matched in terms of height and speed. Lou and Co were able to play smart and that is what won them this game.

GLBS played Uncle Rico’s Time Travelers and we are still scratching our heads trying to figure out what happened. I don’t think anyone would have predicted the second team of the day to put up 0 points would be URTT, even without their usual QB. Maybe the pressure of being the division favorites are getting to them, maybe they used all their energy against Hung Buffalo and had nothing left in the tank, maybe this begins their fall from grace? In any case, kudos to GLBS. I think they may be an underestimated team. Glenn and the tall blonde guy do work and everyone knows Rachel Parker is for real. I will definitely have my eye on this team to see where they are at season’s end.

The last game I was able to watch was BiPolar Express vs. Practice Squad. Gordon stayed with yellow shirt throughout the game but it was touch and go at times, just ask Billy. Our girl Steph played out of her mind both offensive and defensively. The girl with the mustard colored t-shirt also showed skills. Practice squad is a formidable team with solid guys and speedy girls, particularly the rusher. Their play calling and ability to see what they were being given won them this game.

Week 2 Top 3 of the Week:

1. Blasé (only played in BC at 9am then stayed to drink for the rest of the day)

2. Peachy Platoon (showed everyone they do belong in R1 by beating Sticky Bandits)

3. Dean (yes also from PP but this guy made an ESPN worthy catch for a pick so I give credit wheres credit is due)
