Maddie accomplished something Monday night that her PaPa has been unable to do after more than a decade of playing fantasy football. After nine weeks and 137 games completed in the NFL, she is still perfect. This new undefeated queen of the gridiron (the Marauding Madster) sports a record of 9 wins and a giant, big old bagel in the loss column.
Maddie has beaten every single team in the league with out so much as a howdy do! All of this FANTASY glory is hers before she even has the chance to celebrate her 14th week on the planet!
In a league with more than 50 combined years of fantasy experience – my little prodigy has whipped them all. During this march towards glory, Maddie ripped the rednecks, trashed the television people, torched the fire chief, busted the bankers and fried her own father – and all of this before her 4-month birthday.
Can an infant really go undefeated? The 72 no-name Dolphins have already cancelled the champagne this year because they know that the Maddie juggernaut express is barreling down the tracks with all safeties in the off position.
You have to kind of tiptoe around Maddie when it comes to what has been simply labeled as the STREAK. It’s like the pitcher who has pitched 7 perfect innings in the dugout – you have to give her space as she plots her next move. An injury here or a bad week there and the perfection could all come tumbling down.
Last week I asked Maddie about the playoffs and she went wild the way she does during feeding time – “Playoffs, Don’t talk about playoffs! Are you kidding me?” (Cue Jim Mora)
She hasn’t said anything about this, but should Maddie achieve the perfect season – she plans on special dedications for both her Uncle Jim and Uncle Jonathon. She’s funny that way.
