Week 16 MVP Award Winner –
Bob Swerski (34 Points)
Loyal supporter of Da Bears Bob Swerski scored 34 Points last week to win the Week 16 MVP Award for the Super Fans. At a press conference after the match, Bob Swerski said: “I’m speaking from Chicago, Illinois, birth place of the Baby Back Rib and home to a certain great team which come next season will be hoisting a certain Super Bowl trophy over its head. A team that is known as Da Bears! In the meantime, this MVP Award will have to do.” But in taking a look at his picks for last week, perhaps Bob’s key pick that separated him from the Runner-Up was picking against his team Chicago. By picking Buffalo to cover the spread over Da Bears, Bob got 2 Points that the Runner-Up did not. His great week has put Bob Swerksi in prime position to potentially finish in the Top Ten at the end of the season, if he can make up a 12 Point deficit in the next two weeks. The Week 16 MVP Award Runner-Up was none other than The Sad Salmon. The Sad Salmon went home sad after attending the Miami Dolphins home game last week against Green Bay. But he was no doubt happy to see that the Dolphins still hold prime position for the #7 seed in the AFC Playoffs if they can win out. By scoring 33 Points last week, The Sad Salmon has made up another 4 Points in the standings and now stands only 16 Points away from 1st Place in the club. In a span of 2 weeks, he has now moved up from 13th Place to 10th Place to 6th Place. We will soon find out if he can keep up the momentum and finish in the Top Five or ultimately as the Club Champion. Speaking of the Top Five, #1 player Roadrunner held onto the top spot for a 5th consecutive week. He currently leads #2 player My Wife Loves Jimmy G by 4 Points, #3 player Rad Dad by 9 Points, and tied for #4 players Mr. T & Stinkerbell by 15 Points. Roadrunner’s 4 Point lead is similar to the leads held by other 1st Place players after Week 16 over the past four years. In 2021, Drummer Boy held a 1 Point lead. In 2020, Mr. T held a 12 Point lead. In 2019, Halibut J-Bird held a 1 Point lead. And in 2018, Double-Double held a 4 Point lead. Will Roadrunner speed off to victory and pass the checkered flag in 1st Place to put Plymouth in the winner’s circle? Or will his engine blow a gasket during the final 2 laps to crash into the wall of disappointment? We will soon find out as the last 2 laps (or weeks) play out. It would be impressive if Roadrunner could hold onto the lead and take a victory lap while holding the Rhapsody Ralph Trophy out the window.
In the Super Bowl Tournament last week, we had the Conference Round of Final Four matches. Be sure to check out the Super Bowl Tournament Page for results and more information. The paragraph below is copy and pasted over from the Super Bowl Tournament Page.
The Super Bowl Championship match between The Sad Salmon and Rad Dad is going to be an epic battle for the ages between two of the strongest players in the league this season. It will be a fitting conclusion to the shortened Head to Head season as the current #3 and #6 players in the club collide with so much on the line. These two players have both had a lot of success in Head to Head play as well as during past Super Bowl Tournaments. Rad Dad, the #7 seed this season, won the Super Bowl Championship in 2011 when he crushed Runner-Up Pider Man 19-3. And The Sad Salmon, the #9 seed, made the Super Bowl Final last season in 2021. He only lost to Bob Swerski 11-9 as a result of incorrectly picking Triple Jeopardy and having a penalty flag thrown which cost him -2 Points from his final score. But here we are one year later and he is back in the final once again. In looking at Super Bowl Tournament results for this season, how do these two great players stack up? In the Wild Card Round, The Sad Salmon started out by getting revenge for his loss to The Rickster in the tournament 2 years ago by a score of 22-20. This time the result was different, as The Sad Salmon flipped the script and def. The Rickster 16-14. Meanwhile, Rad Dad knocked off last year’s Club Champion Drummer Boy 18-10. That win definitely made waves in the club and caused everyone to stand up and take notice. In the Divisional Round, The Sad Salmon def. Nighthawk 34-17 by doubling his score. And Rad Dad def. Bob Swerski 19-9 to knock the defending Super Bowl Champ out of the tournament by a touchdown and a field goal. So for Rad Dad, that was two matches and two defending champions eliminated. That brings us finally to the Conference Round which took place last week. If you look at the results for both players, they are eerily similar. The Sad Salmon def. Hoosier Daddy 33-26 and Rad Dad def. My Wife Loves Jimmy G 32-26. You can’t get much closer than that when it comes to results. It is really hard for me to pick a potential winner in this match when we have an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object. As with the Super Bowl Final last season, this match could once again come down to who does (or who doesn’t) pick Triple Jeopardy, and whether or not they are right or wrong. It could also come down to whether or not The Sad Salmon’s Dolphins win and whether or not Rad Dad’s 49ers can cover the spread. Because it is highly likely that both will pick their favorite teams to win. Or maybe they will take a page from Bob Swerski’s playbook last week and pick against their teams. We will have to wait and see. It sure will be interesting to see what happens and who becomes the 2022 Super Bowl Head to Head Champion.
