Wow. That was one festive season. It seemed like we were spiraling negatively when a strange calm arose, everyone got injured, and despite that we managed to win our last four matches. Anyway, big turnout this week and everyone scored a lot of points. I think Brad will have a pick Fanpost up later this week. On to the honors.

THE PODIUM: So many people up there. AStar and hansdampf up top and then three of us elbowing each other off of the bronze tier. (Actually, the podium collapsed because all of us had eaten so much holiday pie, and it wasn't meant to hold five fat people.)

CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: jellomon, a huge rugby fan by the way, loves the way Stoke plays, and ever so cleverly picked them to draw 1-1 to Everton. Nobody else scored.

CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: I took this one because I'm stupid, and I really felt like City was due to drop some points, so I picked Swansea to hold them at home. Everyone else scored something. (With that pick, I'm also claiming a new prize this week, the aptly-named Philly37 Wishful Thinking Pick Of The Week.)

A little more separation at the very top, but gosh this year just seems so much closer than previous years.

Hey! This looks different! Everyone scored some points on the absolute thrashing we put on our unruly neighbors. That was fun, eh? AND WE DON'T NEED NO STEENKING STRIKERS.
