Recap: 2/5 and 2/12

A quick recap for the past few weeks:

Fire Nation def. Geeked Up 37 – 15

Fire Nation, after an 8 week layoff dismantled Geek with a heavy run attack, along with grabbing 6 ints, to dominate in their return. Bad luck and many forfeits had kept FN sidelined, and its good to see them back in action. Of note, Geeked Up did show signs of life after falling behind early, and have shown great resilience in handling early deficits.

West Fetti def. New School 27 – 19

Welcome back both of these teams as well!
Straight from captain Bucket: “it was a close game but it came down to the offensive play from west fetti called ‘the baby’ to put it away.

We will be wrapping up the season with the final few games, and playoffs are projected to start first week in March. More to come on exact dates and matchups

Recap 1/15/17

Geeked Up def. Lionhearts 24 – 19

The only game this past week was between Lionhearts and Geeked Up. GU pulled off a late upset with a last play TD pass to end the game. New QB Mahlik had a solid debut and was able to control much of the offense on the ground, picking up many clutch first downs and running for 2 TDs, but the late pass sealed it. Lionhearts otherwise led for the entire game, and had every opportunity to put it out of reach, but just couldn’t pull the trigger. This sets up an exciting rematch this coming week between the 2 teams.

Fire Nation once again dealt with a late cancellation from Fetti following an accident. Thankfully everyone is OK.

Mobb continues to hold team meetings to see if they can put something together. All other teams are on bye.

This week:

Lionhearts vs. Geeked Up

Recap 12/11/16

Lionhearts def. West Fetti 33 – 14

Lionhearts struck early and often and climbed to a 26 – 0 lead, with the help of Danny’s 3 TD catches and behind a solid run attack. Fetti was able to move the ball but failed to score from the red zone on multiple occasions, which ultimately was the difference in this one. Lionhearts have hit a good stride at this stage of the season, and are playing more to expectation.

Geeked Up def. New School 21 – 18

In a competitive and close game, Geeked grabbed their first win and held on to beat their former counterparts. GU jumped to a 14 – 0 lead following a pick 6 by Mikey B and a 75 yard TD run by D’ante to start the game, but New School pulled it together and almost stole the W.

Mobb Deep has been on haitus and will try to gather what remains of their squad over the Christmas a New years break, though unfortunately Fire Nation was forced to take yet another bye due to late cancellation.

Team: Lionhearts

193: What sports do you enjoy playing?
Ademar: I love dominating in football, soccer, lacrosse, basketball and swim.

Ademar: I fucking love me some me!

193: How have you managed to lead the league in sacks this year, and did you buy Pedro any presents yet?
Ademar: To be honest, the reason why I’ve gotten so many sacks is because when we played against Fire Nation in the finals last year I dislocated the shit out of my finger and I couldn’t play, and all I kept hearing from Malik is how he can run all over us. This year I took it upon myself to make my presence knwon and I shut him down. I had 6 sacks on him and I learned how to use my amazing speed to get by his O-line. I will buy Pedro a nice edible fruit basket if I reach 35 sacks, but you should buy me a nice steak dinner since I’ve saved your ass playing center these past few games my guy!

193: What position can’t you play?
Ademar: I can play any position on the field, I fear no one that’s why I call myself THE SUPERBEAST!

193: What’s the best video game of all time?

193: If you were in a fight with John Cena how would you win?
Ademar: If it was John Cena when he was reppin the chain gang he would beat my ass but PG John Cena is a pussy and I would crack his kneecaps real quick.

Ademar: Man I would say 7 times in one day, that’s gotta be a world record cus after the 3rd time I was on empty.

193: Final question – who is your biggest challenge in the league?
Ademar: To be honest I feel so confident in my pass rushing ability that no one can stop me, I listen to Mike Tyson videos on intimidation and it makes me want to kill something beautiful every time. Nothing gets me more turned on that my sack stats!

Recap 12/4/16

Fire Nation def. Geeked Up 27 – 20

Credit to Geeked Up for taking a late notice match a saving Fire Nation from getting yet another forfeit win, as Mobb dropped out late. Fire Nation was able to control the game with a powerful rush attack that cut up Geek, backed by their front 3 and which was just too much to handle. Geeked Up never did give up, and competed to the end.


West Fetti def. New School 32 – 18

West Fetti’s offense continues to roll along, and Bucket has been racking up rushing TD’s as well, and add another W. This sets up an interesting showdown between WF and Lionhearts next week.

Next Games:
Fire Nation vs. Mobb Deep (finally?)
Lionhearts vs. West Fetti
New School vs. Geeked Up

Recap 11/27/16

Lionhearts def. New School 41 – 20

Lionhearts continue to gain momentum, using a balanced run and pass attack, controlling this game from start to finish. Danny backing up the talk added a few TDs, and the offensive line has been clicking. New School did come with new reinforcements, and their team did bring some talent — hopefully they can continue to bring down guys and gain some team chemistry. Alex caught a ridiculous TD over 2 defenders, and earned a mild concussion for his effort. REST UP!!

West Fetti def. Geeked up 42- 19

From the sound of the recap, there were about 10 interceptions in this game, with almost 20 sacks, and still a combined total of about 60 points! From Bucket, “the pressure of Panblanco helped WF get the dub”. Notably, D’ante caught his league leading 10th interception.

Next week:
Fire Nation vs. Mobb Deep (!!!)
West Fetti vs. New School

Looking forward to the FN and MB rematch!
Lionhearts and Geeked up are on byes
Have a great week!

But all seriousness I am calling out the other teams letting them know I’ll be doing this and more all season long and good luck trying to stop me.

Reggie: Well my fire is always lit but the thought of losing fuels my fire – I can’t stand it, thinking of it turns me into a beast.

Recap 11/20/16

Fire Nation def. West Fetti 38 – 0

In what was supposed to be a close and competitive game, FN continues to separate from the pack and rolled all over fetti. It was cold and windy; ideal for FN’s running game. However most of their points came in the air, and with the help of Reggie, who was all over the place, catching 2 TDs and adding 2 interceptions. Next for Fire Nation — a much anticipated rematch with Mobb Deep.

Lionhearts def. Geeked Up 40 – 6

Lionhearts were able to set the pace early, finding success throwing the football and having big contributions from their go-to receivers. Defensively, the front line was a lot to handle, as they were able to contain Geeked Up’s option style running game, and the wind handled the passing game for the most part. Positives from the game are Geeked Up’s good attitude, and no arguing throughout the entire game, with only a focus on capitalizing on playing time.

Mobb Deep def. New School via forfeit

New School once again could not bring enough guys to make a game, and MD adds another forfeit win.
New School’s future is still in question, as this week may be the final straw.

Games coming up this week is still TBD, depending on team availability. This will be updated later in the week.
