Hard to beat these drummers

By Jim Wilkie

Drummers are back at the top of the standings in the Alice in Chains & Friends Charity League and first-place Vinnie Paul is taking on Sean Kinney in the marquee matchup of Week 6.

Randy Wolf
An NLCS victory, a fantasy win and a fantasy trade all in a week's work for Brewers pitcher Randy Wolf.

Hellyeah drummer Paul's The Brickwall Paul (4-1) took over sole possession of first place by defeating Mike Inez's Your Real Dad Al Davis (2-3) 114-89 last week, while Kinney's Team Nosering lost 110-83 to Jerry Cantrell's Aroma Of Tacoma (3-2). The Alice in Chains drummer is in a five-way tie for second at 3-2 but he wins the tiebreaker because he leads those teams with 503 points scored.

Kinney's loss to his bandmate Cantrell naturally led to some gloating after last week's trash talk (click on the link to view the image that was included):

This humble pie tastes like (expletive) ...

Now Cantrell goes up another bandmate who is in his first season of fantasy football, singer William DuVall. Team DuVall is in third at 3-2 and unfazed at facing the veteran.

I will avenge you Sean.

I only go to this well once a season: Since I'm such an underdog I'm pulling out the old voodoo curse for you, William. I need all the help I can get.

But the AIC&FFFCL owner who had the best week is clearly Randy Wolf, whose Team Valley Trash won for the second week in a row by defeating the high-scoring Mach Six's 124-106 behind running backs Adrian Peterson (30 points) of the Vikings and Fred Jackson (25) of the Bills.

And Wolf also allowed two runs and six hits over seven innings Thursday to earn the win in Milwaukee's 4-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4 to pull the Brewers even at two games apiece in the National League Championship Series.

Nice work, Randy. Musta been amazing. Good luck the rest of the way, buddy … until you play me.
