The week before Christmas 2013, may just be my favorite SCPC week to date.  Fourteen total games were entered this week.  Six new teams entered competition, and we are very near 150 games and teams in Season II.  What I’m most excited about though is that we have our first ‘Guest’ coaches, we have two new sponsors, and the Season I Championship trophies have been very well received..

Andy McLauglin had what may be the game of the week when Bartkoski and Killmer stepped in for the two struggling franchises, placing RGIII and Matty Ice both on the bench.  If this was not the game of the week it certainly is one of the best forum game summaries of all time.  Check it out and see all the rave reviews Andy’s work is getting.  Game Recap This game was won by the 1980 Falcon’s.  Andy’s 2012 Falcons remain the number one SCPC team in this week’s rankings.  Way to go Andy!  I absolutely love that Lego photo set-up.

In a game with a much less quality recap my Grattan Swamp Loggers won their third straight MPANMMEFSL game to finish the regular season 5-5.  They are now 2-0 in SCPC Season II play and ranked # 50.  I have one regular season game to go and then a five game playoff that will wrap-up my first full solitaire season in just a little over two years………Here’s my forum thread.

In the sixth round of LeMay’s WLAPF tournament the Green Bay Packers defeated the Houston Oilers 34-17.  It was the Birmingham Americans over the Buffalo Bills 20 – 6, and the Oakland Raiders pounded the Florida Blazers 35-7.  This sets-up the Championship round with the Packers, Raiders, Americans, and Blazers competing for the title.  Here is Chris’s excellent forum thread for this tournament.  Be sure to check out his very nicely done tournament bracket.  Chris is dominating the SCPC top ten right now with his final four teams and two eliminated teams all in the top ten.  I’d have to think the winner of this final round will sit atop the SCPC soon.

Charles Angel provided us with a C_A_Panther EF first with the results of his Angel Family Thanksgiving Tournament this week.  Charles was not originally aware that games like these, played head-to-head with his boys coaching teams from his solitaire league, were eligible for the SCPC.  They are though.  Charles entered all four of them this week, but they were actually played on Thanksgiving weekend.  Charles’ Rams came out on top defeating both the Boston Patriots, coached by Seth, and the Pittsburgh Steelers, coached by Logan.  When the Patriots met the Steelers Seth came out on top defeating brother Logan 22-7.  I thought there was a thread with this action on the forum, but I couldn’t find it this morning.  With the big wins Charles’ Rams are now the #11 team in our rankings.   Welcome to the SCPC as ‘guest’ coaches Seth and Logan.

Brain Wittkop turned in another five games this week from his Pac-10 NMEFL seasons.  Hawaii defeated UNC 20-13, Colorado won 21-7 over Arkansas, and ASU beat PSU 13-10.  Our third guest coach ran the show for the final two NMEFL games this week.  Brain’s grandson, Morgan Wittkop, coached the Stanford Cardinal to a pair of wins.  First Morgan led the Cardinal to a 23-14 victory over the Miami Hurricanes followed by a 27-14 beating of VaTech.  Welcome aboard Morgan.  Your coaching put Grandpa’s Stanford team in the # 17 spot this week.  Check out all the NMEFL action here at Brian’s web site.

That’s all the action for week 16.

So, why was this last week possibly my favorite SCPC week ever?  Guest coaches, trophies, and sponsors.  The emergence of guest coaches, the celebration of Season I trophies, and two new sponsors are all signs that the SCPC is having it’s intended effect on MF, is becoming part of the MF/EF landscape, and is continuing to grow.  Not bad for one week!

Now, all I want for Christmas is play some solitaire MF.  Merry Christmas.
