December 201Newsletter 


Hey brothers & sisters! santa sleigh


Season's Greetings!! Holy freakin' crap!! It's here!! Well, whether you've braved the frozen tundra and traveled to spend the holidays with your family & friends back home, are gearing up for a house full of visitors yourself, or elected to keep it low key this year; keep your heart open, your glasses full (of course!), and fight the cold with as many warm fuzzies within as you can muster! And if anyone out there needs some warm, fuzzy guidance, feel free to get in touch with us and we'll be happy to cheese it up with you - <3 
We took a massive road trip up to northern PA to visit fam and it was AWESOME! Our nephew Luka had his school band xmas concert and we got to be there! You know you want to see it, so you can watch it HERE (skip to 26:53, he's the dude in the upper right with long blond hair and glasses). Flawless performance, obviously. We got caught in some snow while we were there and it made the traveling a bit sketchy at times, but we made it! Now we're safely back at Sheath HQ in GA and spending the next few days with more family and fun! We're gearing up for some board game madness with Lindsay's dad and the rest of the fam, as Lindsay's mom is road tripping over from New Orleans right now. So it should be a good one! 
This is the time of year to put all the hustle of the previous 11 months aside for just a second, remember what it's all for, and catch your breath and recharge the battery for another year of hustlin' :) You guys all ROCK and we wish you all the best; please accpet our deepest and most sincere SHEATH LOVE, HUGS, AND KISSES!!! *MUAH* *MUAH* *MUAH* Hopefully 2013 treated you OK, but regardless of whatever hand you were dealt this year, play that shit, build upon it, and make 2014 the ULTIMATE year! The one that you look back on in 50 years and say "Sheeeeeeit mawfaw, THAT was the year I nailed it!". Happiest of holidays to you & yours, now lets get into some muzak neeeews!

MSFFL Sheath Bowl Champion!

The 2013 Mylene Sheath Fantasy Football League Champion has been crowned. Everybody congratulate Lindsay and her Georgia Peaches as they bring the Sheath Bowl Trophy home for the 2nd time in 3 seasons, cementing the teams status as a fantasy football legacy!! She defeated Evan and his team If These Footballs Could Talk in Sheath Bowl V, 122.90 - 111.04. Thanks for the fun season guys, you can view all the final standings and stats HERE!

Special notes on the season:

1. Allen & TEAM BENEATH OBLIVION had an amazing season after everyone questioned their initial draft picks. The joke was on everyone else in the MSFFL as TEAM BENEATH OBLIVION went 10-3 in the regular season on their way to the number 1 seed heading into the play-offs. 

2. Joel & Myrtle Beach Sunburns were pathetic as usual. They went 3-10 en route to the worst record in MSFFL... again. 

3. Niko & Laamanaamat got off to a disastrous start to the season, but ended up 7-6 and making the play-offs marking the biggest team turnaround this season. Good job Niko! 

4. Post-MSFFL depression now begins to sit in until next August. Come join us next year for the sixth annual season, email us if you would like to join :)
