Each week, one of the participants in the 2010 Blogger Fantasy League is responsible for a recap. Week 7 is my turn as the deep man responsible for bringing it back.
In case you hadn’t noticed from the massive apocalypse-sized orange bags of candy at your local supermarket or the spackling of fake cobwebs lining your neighbors front porch, Halloween is bearing down on the country like a Clay Matthews pass rush, complete with the stringy hair resembling a Crypt Keeper wig. In keeping with the recent trend to move every holiday up (Christmas decorations on sale before Labor Day, anyone?), this week’s recap will take on a Halloween theme, in the hopes of utilizing the concept before a week’s worth of Halloween-themed sitcoms and a weekend’s worth of costumed dancing Fox Sports robots have officially retired what little patience we all have left for America’s favorite holiday dedicated to candy gorging and sanctioned cross-dressing.
Sure, I’m jumping the gun in stealing a construct that the Week 8 recapper should have owned like Eagles receiver/FoT (friend of Tebow) Riley Cooper snagging an underthrown ball from the Tennessee secondary. But it’s only fitting, as Week 7 in any fantasy league is officially when pretend time comes to an end. After six weeks of mistaking a lucky week or two for a trend, by this point in any season, teams have typically been unmasked and the contending wheat has been separated from the pretending chaff. (For those of you wondering, my team, the Febreze Freshness, managed to overcome bye week limitations–not to mention my own aforementioned draft day woes–to pull out a victory against the stinky mess that the injury-laden Team Gunaxin has become, maintaining sufficient freshness to hold onto the hope of being part of that contending class.)
All that being said, let us kill the proverbial two birds with one stone and run down Week 7 in fantasy football AND the seven costumes you’re most likely to see this Halloween season.
