prince charming - the comeback kid

Talk about a Cinderella Story week. Early last Sunday, I was pretty much convinced I'd lose not one but both of my games.

On Cinderella's Fellas, I had Calvin Johnson battling a sore knee and Adrian Peterson facing a devastating family tragedy. Though I'd considered benching both, I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and play them. Though they yielded disappointing numbers, I don't regret my decision. Sometimes, a girl has to stand by her man, or in this case men.

(Quick, serious note: My heart truly goes out to Adrian Peterson and his family. Such a sad story.)

On Cinderella's Ball, I had Torrey Smith and Peyton Manning who put up all-time low numbers. I thought I was done-zo for sure.

But, like a pumpkin turning into a carriage, like a pretty dress being turned into a ball gown, like Cinderella going to the ball, I won both of my games -- and by a healthy margin. While I have many fine young men to thank for my victory this week, I'm giving dubbing Vernon Davis my Prince Charming of the week.

After overcoming an injury that put him on my bench for a couple of weeks, this San Francisco tight end proved he was back and ready to play ball in last Sunday's game. Oh, sure San Francisco predictably defeated the Arizona Cardinals (32-20, which is a score that maybe wasn't predicted).

Here's what I care about: 35 points for Team Laura. That's something that makes me swoon. Wanna know a few other numbers that has my heart beating a little faster? Eight receptions. 180 receiving yards. Two touchdowns.

Not bad for a tight end recovering from an injury, ey?

Here's the update on how my teams were at the end of week six:
  • Cinderella's Fellas: 1st of 10 (5 wins, 1 loss)
  • Cinderella's Ball: 3rds of 12 (4 wins, 2 losses)

Not too shabby. Let's see how week seven goes.
