If you have seen the movie, you know how crazy football can be, all of the different possible outcomes, all fighting for the same championship. This was a great season, and my 49ers have won their wild card game and on their way back to the Bowl. Even though we played on the road with a much better record (need a rule change), we are looking good.

The most exciting part of this NFL season were my fantasy football games. After waiting to make sure their were no crazy stat corrections, it is official, I am the CHAMPION. The final game was just like a real Super Bowl, the game went down to the wire. My team went into Monday Night Football, down a few points with two remaining players Phil Dawson (K) and the 49er defense, against his only remaining player Tony Gonzales. If you watched the game, you saw it go back and forth. I thought Tony’s late 4th quarter TD sealed the deal for me, thought it was over, and after the Pick 6 I thought I was back in the drivers seat. A couple first downs to Tony, and it was looking bad again! Then the final play of the game, a hail mary and an interception gave me the final push to victory by only 1.44 points. 

The Kings are the champions! I look forward to the rest of the playoffs, hopefully the Niners continue the magic and win one like me.
