STLCardinals84 jumps PrimeTime420 into third place. Making the biggest jump up the board is CPF501 who leaps into 7th place. It’s early in the TPOY season, so make sure you get your Spring Training pitching reps in!

The players are settling into their positions for the NBA season. It’s heading to the stretch run, but there’s one guy obliterating the competition. We all know who that is. Condia is Randy Johnson, and we’re the bird.

Hockey is back! Yes! Yes! Yes!

The Big Score points aren’t in the rankings yet, but they should shake it up a little bit for next week.
The top two have stayed ranked the same, but KCannon has hopped BoggsLite into third and Mtom347 moves up to fifth place. No seque here… just a Slap Shot gif.

March is just kicking off, and we’ll take a deeper look at how March plays out through the rest of the month. This guy had some great March moments in one sport, and maybe some not so memorable moments in Spring Training of another sport. MJ definitely made the month of March memorable every year though.

Congratulations to those players who are at the top of all of our leader boards!

So, the Weekly Rankings Update has some bad news. I have officially run out of Alison Brie gifs (at least ones that can be posted on RGs). There will probably never be such a great collection of gifs of a hot woman ever, but we will try to find the next candidate. Until then, this week’s substitute is Amy Adams. Let me know if we should keep her.
