The return of not really slim and not really shady.

Hey all, so I am in this crazy battle to win AL Tout Wars vs. Lawr Michaels of creativesports.com so we decided to give the play by play of our blow by blow on our blogs and Toutwars.com. We are currently separated by 0.5 points with Lawr holding the lead for the moment. It is absolutely the most intense battle I’ve ever been in and to be honest I have no clue how this will turn out the variables are endless due to the amount time left in the categories Lawr and I are battling in and then the categories we are battling with others.

 

here is the post……………….Siano
