December ushers in the stretch run for the 2018 GBF season, and following last week’s meltdown in the standings the Senior Bro found himself in the most dire situation coming into Week 13, four games in arrears to the defending Surfy champion, his biggest deficit of the year. With the margin for error getting slimmer, a quick turnaround was in order. “I need to get some base hits and hope for the grand slam,” Glenn said Sunday, mixing baseball metaphors with his football picks. There weren’t any home runs, but he did manage the equivalent of the pitcher walking one in.

The Bros came up with just one split for the weekend, and it was an unassuming contest between the Panthers and Buccaneers. Carolina, its playoff hopes very much in the balance, figured to be motivated against an unpredictable Tampa Bay team that has been mostly a disappointment this season. But the Panthers have been a disappointment themselves lately, coming in on a 3-game losing streak, and Sunday found Cam Newton at what might have been his worst. The Panthers’ quarterback was picked four times — three of those by Andrew Adams — as the Bucs won, 24-17, and moved the Senior Bro back to within three games of the lead.

Glenn’s 11-5 record was the best overall in the first non-bye week since the end of September. Sean stole second at 10-6, while Ben slid into third with a 7-9 mark. Everyone scored with picks of Baltimore, Denver, Houston, Seattle and New England. We all struck out on Dallas, Jacksonville and the L.A. Chargers. (Okay, no more baseball analogies this week!)
