Tiger’s Wood defeats Finding Foerster 130.85 to 101.65 in Toppa Bowl VII to become the first ever back-to-back James M. Toppa Sr. Memorial Fantasy Football League champion.
Twice as Nice
I guess defense really does win championships. The Los Angeles Chargers defense put up 20 points against the Jets early Sunday afternoon. Kwon Alexander added another 10 points, which was enough to put JD up by 30 at that point. From there, JD never looked back to become 2017 Toppa League champion.
Could JD be the best Toppa player ever? JD has now been to 4 Toppa Bowls in a row, 5 total, and won the last two. He has the highest winning percentage in league history, has the most wins in league history, is the only team to have 50 regular-season wins, is tied for the most Toppa Bowl championships and has never missed the playoffs.
Tiger’s Wood knew how to turn it on for the playoffs. JD’s team averaged 164.13 points per game in their three playoff matchups. They didn’t lose a game by less than 30. A lot of that came from Kareem Hunt, who hadn’t scored in double digits in 6 weeks coming into the playoffs, but scored 83 total points in his three playoff games.
Déjà Vu All Over Again
After losing in a blowout in Toppa Bowl VI, Buckets established himself as the best team in the 2017 season, winning 10 games and securing the number one seed. He won his first two playoff matchups by scoring 328 total points in two games. He found himself once again up against JD in the Toppa Bowl. And once again, he didn’t have enough to defeat JD. Buckets has got to be thinking what can he do to beat JD.
JD Scores Buckets
In a year when scoring had been down across the league, JD’s 130.85 points was the lowest winning score in Toppa Bowl history. It was more than enough though. Buckets put up the third lowest score of any team to play in the Toppa Bowl. He now owns the lowest and third-lowest scores in Toppa Bowl history.
1 Championship, 2 Championships, …
Last year was about breaking the curse. This year was about establishing dominance. “Last year was awesome,” JD said to a reporter. “But this year is almost better. This year shut up all the critics. Silenced the haters. They thought it was a fluke. But this proves it’s not. And there’s no reason why we can’t go out and win it again next year. The best championship is the next one.”
Congrats JD. You played one hell of a season start to finish.
Well, that’s one more Toppa League SZN in the books. I for one am already looking forward to next year’s cookout and draft.
Have a happy New Year everybody and, as always, thanks for reading (and enjoying?) this trash I put on the internet.
