I think the Hierarchs need a spiffy new logo to keep up with the competition. Congrats to the Dubuque Fighting Saints.

Anyone interested in fantasy football let me know. I’m setting up the Hanseatic League and the Ghibellines will be a force! (hoping they won’t be a farce)

So it looks like the week 13 standings when they come out will have the Rocky Mountain Hierarchs at 8-3-1* and the Dubuque Fighting Saints at 7-4-1. Congrats to the Fighting Saints on a great season to complement their rapidly growing fan base throughout the Midwest and the railroad industry.

*Unless Bp. Coyne loses his Twitter access for the week, in which case 9-2-1 is a possibility.
