Metric Ewing Strikes Back! Hangar 18: Bloggers vs. Rockers Fantasy Football - Week 9 Summary

Here we go, over the mid-season hump and on to Week 9 of Hangar 18: the Bloggers v. Rockers Fantasy Football League. Due mostly to Matt's iron-fisted rule, you've been given a heavily subjective taste of the league's action thus far. Well now it's finally time to hear about the feel-good story of the season: the dramatic resurgence of Team Mancino, or - as our name within the league is known - Metric Ewing. We just rattled off our fifth consecutive win after a dismal 0-4 start to climb all the way to fifth place, a feat due in equal measure to shrewd managerial skills, ideal matchups, luck, and the awesome power of Tom Brady. Below are the current standings, the results from this past week, Week 10 matchups and the league's theme song.
