Wrap-Up of Week 16
What a horrible sister. My little bro finally wins and I didn’t even pick him. Recap for last week: Winners include Barry, Daniel, Derek, Steve, Jacob and Ryan. The opposite of the winners are Lainey, Barker, Luke, Tony, Alison and Stan. On the plus side, my husband did buy me a new pair of the Nike Cortez…don’t worry though they were mens because apparently it’s too much to ask to have some decent women’s sneakers in 2015?
Week 17 Predictions
Do you like Mike Tyson? Do you not like Mike Tyson? Whatever the answer, you should watch his new show Mike Tyson Mysteries. It involves Mike Tyson being a parent, a daughter, a ghost and a talking pigeon…oh yeah, it’s a cartoon and it’s very entertaining. It got me thinking about Tyson and his brilliance especially when it comes to words and sentences…so this week I designate each prediction with a fabulous quote by the one and only Mike Tyson. Just read them, they’re enlightening.
LAINEY VS DEREK
Ooohhh this would be such a good chance to redeem myself for being a jerk of a sister and pick the little brother to win against me this week!! But I will not. I will beat you. And next time if the carbon monoxide detector is going off, notify the family also living in your apartment complex. I win.
TYSON QUOTE: “I'm a dreamer. I have to dream and reach for the stars, and if I miss a star then I grab a handful of clouds.”
DANIEL VS STEVE
Hahahahaha…I pick Daniel. Steve’s in first, but I pick Daniel. Steve, what do you think you’ll do when you win the league? Unlike Mike, I hope you cry a little.
TYSON QUOTE: “I don't react to a tragic happening any more. I took so many bad things as a kid and some people think I don't care about anything. It's just too hard for me to get emotional. I can't cry no more.”
BARRY VS BARKER
Speaking of quotes, remember the time Barker was like hey, I think Lainey should write weekly prediction for the fantasy basketball league and Daniel was like oh yeah what super idea and then I am like…. Still doing it. Barry’s on a roll, I pick him.
TYSON QUOTE: “I don't understand why people would want to get rid of pigeons. They don't bother no one.”
LUKE VS STAN
I like this matchup. Decisions, decisions. Stan is slowly, but surely climbing the ladder of the Fresh Banana Rama League Times so I will go with him.
TYSON QUOTE: “I just look around and say, I'm a mess. I don't know why I do things.”
JACOB VS TONY
Jacob and Tony have to be two of the nicer guys in this league. I’d pick a tie, but I already did that and said I’d only do it once. I know how I can decide. It was Tony’s wife’s birthday on Monday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY HEATHER!!!) so I will pick Tony.
TYSON QUOTE: “I'm a historian, and that freaks me out.”
RYAN VS ALISON
So, I learned this weekend that Ryan can make nice looking things with his hands. It’s pretty cool. Alison is good at it too. She makes her house look awesome and if I ever own a house I’ll ask her to decorate it and hang some of Ryan’s art up. Ryan, you’re doing kind of awesome so I have to pick you for the win this week.
TYSON QUOTE: “You can't stay married in a situation where you are afraid to go to sleep in case your wife might cut your throat.”
