Week 13 was quite the strong one with an average of 13.1 points per user (our highest of the season) and not a single user going under 10 points! (Impressive considering some of the apocalyptic games that happened throughout the weekend in football.) We had a bunch of co-leaders, including Cade, Ben Tankersley, SperryGodBrother, RangerWard_THWG, GTJonny, Zman1990HOF#14 (that rolls off the tongue), and kenneth bonner. You know, a tie is kinda like kissing your sister, but when you got 80% of the available points, it's still pretty good. There were another 8 people (myself included) who scored 15, and 10 users after that who scored 14 -- good stuff! There were a combined 7 LVPs this week, but we won't get into that for two reasons: a) they still scored an honorable 10 points, and b) that's not really in the Christmas Thanksgiving spirit.

What do you know? We have another tie! Yes, with one week remaining, we have a tie for first between CaliGT and kenneth bonner after a bit of a (relatively) rough week from CaliGT and a strong performance from kenneth bonner. It's a perfect setup for one last week of selections. However, right behind them is the known-dangerous ITPatlien, only 2 points back and in position to sneak past them both for the win. Who's going to get it done??

I extended my lead amongst the staff to 4, with Cade pulling ahead of Atlanta's original team for sole possession of second place! AOT is still whipping us both in points per week though, and at his pace would be in the lead if not for his missing week! (The same could be said for thebugman10, who's only 6 points out of first place on one fewer week.)
