The Founder Shield fantasy football league is now in full swing and the first couple weeks of the seasons have not disappointed in both savage beatings and hard-fought victories. Check out a sample of the weekly recap (written each week by the team with the least points):
“My personal favorite insurance pun team name, Hammer Claws, proves fortunate scheduling is sometimes all you need. They end up with the lowest winning point total, 99, but are undefeated nonetheless. The expectation moving forward is that McKenna scales his way up the standings, and tells people who didn’t ask how he’s really torn between whether he’s a Giants or Saints fan.”
Founder Shield Basketball team are off to a 2-1 start. Statistically speaking, teams that start 2-1 make the playoffs 54% of the time.
