What an absolute disaster of a week for me last time out. Disaster doesn’t seem severe enough. Catastrophe? Apocalypse? None of these do justice to the anguish I was feeling at 5:45 on Sunday evening. Not only did I lose my league match by a single point, I was also eliminated from the Survival Cup with a score of 24. Prior to this I had not scored less than 32 all season. And the week previously, five teams had scored 24 or less, with Huw somehow surviving on 19. I know what you’re thinking. Cry me a river. We don’t give a fuck about your feelings. That’s cool. Just know that when that cruel mistress named Fantrax comes knocking for you (and she will) you will have my deepest sympathies.
And it was the Villain of the Year himself that profited from my demise. Getting odds of nearly 25/1, Huw took home £28.80 from a £1.20 stake. Well played Sir.
