Next Tuesday at this time I'll be nursing a Swedish meatball hangover while, most likey, cursing 21st century toy packaging. In other words, I'll be enjoying Christmas with family and thinking very little about the silliness that is Week 17 – although my highest priority league plays out the season through the final week because, as I like to say, we are loathe to leave meat on the bone. Unfortunately, I was knocked out of that league a couple weeks back (thank you, Andrew Luck). At any rate, this will be the final Skinny of the 2012 season – however, you can still expect the position rankings in Week 17 at their usual time.
I just want to congratulate everyone that is still alive and kicking in what is, for most, their fantasy championship game this weekend. And a hearty thanks to everyone who checked in here regularly this season. Finally, in the words of Neil Diamond, "I wish you all a very, merry, cherry cherry Christmas, and a holly holy holiday, too. Underneath your tree may there always be sounds of harmony, not a song sung blue"
