As you already know, I'm back in first place. Ralph is comfortably in 4th, but now Mr. "I Can Make You Second" as slipped through the cracks into 3rd place. I've chronicled his fall from grace over the past 3 weeks via e-mails.
WHEN HE WAS IN 1ST

Cmon guys, seriously, step it up. I am getting bored running away with this thing
WHEN HE WAS IN FIRST AND BOUGHT KOBE BRYANT

I Can Make You Second, AKA, The Kobe Bryants. Be afraid. Be very Afraid.
WHEN THE KOBE TRADE DIDN'T WORK AND HIS LEAD STARTED TO DIMINISH
From: I Can Make You Second Sent: Thu 11/29/2007 3:17 PM To: Sickamore
Panic? the guy averages 10 more points a game then anyone in the league. Its not brain surgery. But listen, I'm a First Place organization. We play to stay there, I'm not busy playing catchup.
Possible name changes on the horizon: I Can Make You Blog I Can Make You Not Invite DiBugnaras to Compete in a Public Forum I Can Make You Trade for Shawne Williams The Kobe Bryants (Formerly the Richard Jeffersons)
WHEN I HAD A BAD NIGHT AND HIS LEAD SWELLED

Let me get this straight now, is this how this works......
I Can Make You Second > The Secret Agents > Ft. Greene Leans
Very effective and accurate system.....
WHEN MY TWO STAR PLAYERS DIDNT PLAY: LEBRON GOT INJURED AND JASON KIDD SAT OUT

ahhaahah....get me Third Places email too........ Listen though, I have the perfect name for your team. DNP Management. Logo can be a picture of Lebron and JKidd in street clothes.
BTW, I was watching that Denver game. You sent the Iverson email out, and he scores 4 more points in about 18 minutes of play. I Can Make You Jinx Your Team.
Seriously, this is getting very boring.. I need you guys to step it up.
WHEN HE STARTED SLIPPING AGAIN AND MADE PANIC SIGNINGS LIKE CHRIS KAMAN
From: I Can Make You Second Sent: Thu 12/6/2007 11:21 AM To: Sickamore
I guess Dreaming big is your job.... and Kaman deserves to play on a winning organization like mine. Dwight Howard is on vacation. He will be returning Tuesday night at midnight.
WHEN HIS LEAD FELL TO UNDER 100

zzzzzzz....My whole team goes tonight while that midget Iverson and last nights Sickamore Overated Special Josh Howard hang out at a local tattoo parlor. Have fun watching me blow my lead up again.
WHEN STARBURY FATHER DIED (HE ENDED UP SCORING 2 PTS THIS NIGHT)
From: I Can Make You Second Sent: Fri 12/7/2007 3:04 PM To: Sickamore
If I had one more trade, I would add Mr. Marbury to my squad.... he is about to tear it up. I Can Make You Make a Sentimental Trade.
WHEN HE FELL BACK INTO SECOND PLACE

Enjoy it while it lasts because it wont last long.
WHEN I PICKED UP CHRIS PAUL BEFORE HE DID (GENIUS MOVE ON MY PART)
From: I Can Make You Second Sent: Wed 12/12/2007 2:19 PM To: Sickamore
Wow. What a great post. Really super stuff. Translation "I made a nice little move to protect my puny lead and got Kaman." Trouble is, your not the only one who got C.Paul. I might have to cut him. I dont want to be associated with ghost trading like you are.
WHEN SECOND PLACE GOT FRUSTRATING AND STARTED TO THROW PETTY (ALBEIT FUNNY) JABS TO MY BLOG
From: I Can Make You Second Sent: Wed 12/12/2007 2:35 PM To: Sickamore
Your in first place for a minute and your talking smack. Pretty amateur, dont you think. Chris Paul called me...he asked me if I knew that you recommended clothing and jewelry for men on your blog. Maybe you can recommend a nice pair of shades for Kaman.
MORE SECOND PLACE FRUSTRATION
From: I Can Make You Second Sent: Thu 12/13/2007 5:03 PM To: Sickamore
This is very unoriginal trash talk. Pretty much everything I said when i was in first. I thought you were creative. Once I get back on my thrown this week, I am going to write all 13 people that read your blog and tell them you need a new Muse. ..yours truly TGIAD (Thank God I'm a DiBugnara)
WHEN I SUGGESTED HE SHOULD COME WORK FOR ME

I'm in. Great idea. You just landed yourself your 14th viewer for your blog.
4 HOURS BEFORE HE FOUND OUT ABOUT 3RD PLACE

I wouldnt sleep on me.
WHEN THE 3RD PLACE REALITY SET IN
From: I Can Make You Second Sent: Mon 12/17/2007 1:46 PM To: Sickamore
I cant believe you changed your name Ghost Dog. Your mirroring techniques can truly be mistaken by the common man as lack of creativity. We know this is not true for you though Ghost Dog.
Now the Dibugnara brothers (Ralph who lost the poll is related) are in 3rd and 4th place respectively. Ralph will probably pass him and then fall into fourth place. The moral to this story?
