Fantasy Update: I clinched the playoffs in my main league this week, jumped back up into second place, and have a match against third place for who earns the first round bye this week. I am still in playoff contention in both other leagues at 5-7 and 6-6, but likely need wins this week.
I have a half-dozen photos or so to share from the Pierz football semifinal game in the Class AAA playoffs. Enjoy.
