Since September, we’ve all gotten used to seeing Playmates Deanna Brooks and Pilar Lastra deliver fantasy football beat downs to worthy male adversaries. But no previous match up has fully prepared the girls for their ultimate test: a week 15 battle with Sports Illustrated’s Jimmy Traina, writer of the daily Hot Clicks on SI.com.
If you haven’t watched the above video yet, it’d be in your best interest to do so now. Let’s just say Jimmy’s Christmas just got a whole lot more interesting—although it’s unclear whether he’ll actually be unwrapping this present.
Here’s what a confident Mr. Hot Clicks had to say about Deanna and Pilar’s 10-4 record on the season and a few of their questionable picks from last week:
I’m supposed to sit here and bash you ladies, but the truth is you’re 10-4 on the season. Of course, this just proves my theory on fantasy football, which is that it’s all luck. Obviously, if two Playmates are 10-4 at this point in the season, some major luck is involved. Judging by the lineup you guys set last week, it’s clear your football knowledge is lacking. You started Antonio Gates, who was injured? Kicker Robbie Gould in a blizzard at Solider Field? You may have been able to get away with poor decisions like that in the past, but I’m in the playoffs of my fantasy league, so I have no doubt I’ll cruise past you this week. The little charade of a couple of attractive Playmates having some fluke fantasy football success ends this week. Sorry.
Deanna quickly responded with a few zingers and a slightly confusing reference to a sandbox:
You clearly are not the guy that buys Playboy for the articles! If you had, then you would have seen the quote in my issue that says “Luck is nothing more than preparation meets opportunity.”
This isn’t our first trip to the rodeo, or Dallas Stadium if you will. Sure we hit a little bump in the road with Antonio Gates last week, but that was a calculated risk.
Maybe you’re just not used to playing in the sandbox with girls who may have assets a little north of what seems to keep you boys so distracted on Hot Clicks. We’re going to give you the benefit of the doubt because you love us. That and the fact that you must have gotten all your picks this week straight from the cheat-sheets.
BTW, Call us on that “little” show of ours on Sirius Playboy Radio if you have any questions for some real fantasy football experts. Then we can all have some eggnog and laugh about when you actually questioned our statistically amazing record in picking players.
