My solitaire league is the WMLMF - West Michigan League of Miniature Football. It is a fantasy league consisting of 22 teams, most of which are of my own creation. I started with 4 teams in it's 1st season, expanded it to 8 teams the next year, and then added more each season until I had reached the 22 teams that are in it now. The last few years that I ran the league I played a 9 or 10 week season (games actually, as a weeks worth of games takes me about a month to play) for each team, then ran a 4 team playoff ending with a championship game that I call the Gumbo Bowl. The WMMF is split into two conferences, each with two divisions. The Paranormal and World Domination divisions are in the North Conference, while over in the Un-North Conference is the Lifestyles and Potpourri divisions. When I decided to make my own teams, I couldn't decide whether to make them with home or away jerseys, Istead, I went with the offense having away uni's and the defense having home uni's. My reasoning is that when you are on offense, you are attacking, usually someplace away from home. When you are under attack, you are defending your home. This is opposite of many other leagues I've seen that split the offense and defense wth different jerseys. Anyways, here is a little background information and the rosters of each team........

 

The Paranormal Division – The Paranormal Division starts with one of the original 4 teams that I made around 15 or 16 years ago. They won the first 2 Gumbo Bowls and have been in the playoffs every year. They're big, hairy, smelly and don't even wear any uniforms. Of course, I'm talking about the Canadian Sasquatch. They prefer to pound the ball with their 2 stellar running backs, Grog and Muckman. When they aren't running the ball, they resort to Stinkwater, one of the top quarterbacks in the league. His favorite target is the undisputed top tight end, Tipper. On defense they rely on one of the WMMF's best tackles, Tank, who is always in the top 10 in tackles. They also have one of the premier defensive backs in Gopher.

The New Zealand Zombies are a team that came from the old Miggle chat board. Someone put up a post that if you could pick any NFL player, past or present, who would be your first draft pick. 8 or 9 guys chimed in and soon it was decided that you could not pick the same player that someone else had already picked. We went through 30 or so rounds and we even made a name for our fantasy draft team. My team was the Zombies, so their roster is filled with players that I got from the draft. I thought I did pretty good. The Offensive line is all HOFers, they have four 12,000+ yard rushers, and the defense is a head coaches dream and an offenses worst nightmare. Plus they have two of the best kickers that have ever played in Reggie Roby and Adam Vinatieri. They feature some custom figures given to me as a present from Terry Popham down in Texas.

Weirdwolf's Werewolves - I was at a hobby shop one day getting some paint and brushes and as I walked past a display case I saw some figures for something called HeroClix. I noticed some were werewolves and thought that I could make a team out of them. They just happened to have 11, so I bought them all and cut off the dials that they were on and glued them to some stands. Ta da! The Werewolves were born. I played 1 season with them as an iron man squad. As that season ended, a fellow EF enthusiast (Rick Garrison?) sent me a team of Catachan Commandos figures. I was blown away. Well, I thought I could use them as another 11 man squad, or add them to the Werewolves, which is what I ended up doing. This has worked out well, as a few of the Commando figures aren't very well suited for football. But the rest are great, so they are a bonus for the Wolves.

The Cleveland Cadavers is a team created by John DiCarlo. He posted a pic of 3 players on the Miggle board and all it took was one look and I knew I had to have the team. It took awhile, but eventually he made 13 of them and let me have them for my league. I love this team. They were a bit on the light side, so I added a little more weight to them. They are a spunky bunch with a lot of guts, which is a surprise considering they are all skeletons. Red Skelton retired as the head coach and has been replaced by non other than Achmed the Dead Terrorist.

Munich's Moon Sharks is one of two fantasy teams that you can buy from Tudor. They were created by Glenn Hardaway as part of a contest from Miggle in honor of Doc Smeby who passed away in 2007. . I figured that they are a natural fit for my league, and as an added bonus, I didn't have to do any painting. The Moon Sharks had a so-so first season. They struggled in the running game, but they had one of the best receivers in Orr Bitz and their quarterback, Cray Terr was a pleasant surprise and a top fantasy pick. Defensively they had an up and down year, but remained competitive most of the time.

The last team in the Paranormal Division is the Lake Michigan Martians. They are led by Marvin the Martian, who had an incredible rookie year as quarterback. They needed him as both running backs, Gort and Klaatu, were inconsistent at best. Their defense basically got the job done, which led them to a playoff spot with a 5-3 record. With some improvement in the O-line, they could be a top 5 team. They are different from traditional teams in that instead of having home and away jerseys, they use home and away pants instead.

When you think of the World Domination Division, the first team that most people think about it the 'evil' team - the Munich Third Reich. Every hero needs a villain, so I thought I would make the ultimate villains. It didn't go over well. Boy, did I take a lot of flak when I posted them on the Miggle board. Discussions rapidly deteriorated and the post was the first one ever booted from the board. Things soften up over time, as many Efers also liked to play Axis and Allies. I think of them as more like the Hogans Heroes Germans, a bunch of goofballs with Colonal klink at QB, Sargent Schulltz at left guard, and General Burhalter and Major Hockstetter on defense. As it's turned out, they aren't bad for a football team, having won 2 Gumbo Bowls

Conquering the world goes back thousands of years with one of the earliest being the Egypt Ra. Named after their sun God, the Ra is unique in that instead of numbers, they use Egyptian hieroglyphs on their backs. They are led by Moses and Ramesses on offense and Tutankhamen on defense. A tough team, they seemed to be cursed with bad luck as they led the league in fumbles and penalties. They are unique in that they feature figures from Excaliber Football.

Some years after the Egytians ruled the world, the Roman Gladiators took over. They are a work in progress. Led by their quarterback “I am” Spartacus, the only bright spot on offense was their tight end Brutus. Defensively, they are ok, but their star linebackers, Russell Crowe and Kirk Douglas seemed to spend more time complaining that they didn't get any Oscars than concentrating on the other teams plays. Naturally, they use Roman numbers instead of the standard numbers used today while wearing sandals instead of shoes,

Between the 16th and 18th centuries, the British Empire ruled the world. Though nowhere near their peak, they still have quite a bit of dominance around the planet. The London Union Jacks came to life as a tribute to Doc Smeby, a fellow electric football enthusiast living on the other side of 'The Pond', who passed away in 2007. He is the star quarterback and is surrounded by famous Brits such as running back Mick Jagger who shakes off defenders like they were groupies on the stage and William Shakespeare, who calls all the plays on defense.

Conquering the world isn't only for humans, as insects and other animals have had their runs as well. One of the most recent attempt was by the Killer Bees. Since the 50's the Bees have slowly made their way north from the rain forests of Central America. They made it as far as Kalamazoo, where they settled down and now call home. They are one of the original 4 teams that I made for the WMLMF. The Bees have one of the steadiest quarterbacks in the league in Kerry Kingbee, and also one of the top defensive backs in Norman Nest, who has twice led the league in interceptions.

It would be easy to dismiss the Lifestyles Division in the Un-North Conference as it is the only Division that has not had a team win the Gumbo Bowl. Make no mistake about it, it has some of the toughest teams in the league. At the top of the list is my favorite team, the Battlin' Bozos of Battle Creek. What can I say, I love these guys to death. When they are serious, these guys can play some football. Unfortunately, they are a bunch of clowns and like to goof around at times. Their head coach, Slappy O'Flaherty ( A special figure made for me by a fellow Efer that went by the name TV's Chachi Johnny Manzell ? Sorry, I can't remember his last name) has his work cut out for him.

Quick quiz. What does Richard Simmons, Barney Frank and Liberace have in common? Why, they are all members of the San Francsco Flaming Fairies, you silly goose! Yes, the Fairies... the most politically incorrect team of all time. Don't take them the wrong way. I've known many gay people over the years, and have 2 of them on the roster. My best friend in Jr. High and High School and for many years afterwards until he passed away back in 1992 from the early cases of AIDS, Jack Stone is on defnese. And another young man I knew for a few years after High School before I moved away and lost contact, James Leach at running back. The Fairies also have a gift, a Tiny Tim figure given to me by Scott Hooper

Next up is a team I dedicated to Lynn Schmidt. I got the idea for them during the Miggle chat board fantasy team draft when Lynn named his team after his upbringing. They are a simple team that doesn't use electricity, telephones or cars and are deeply religious. Of course I'm talking about non other than the Midwest Mennonites. With a bible in their hands and a beard on their chins, the 'Nites are a force to be reckoned with. Instead of a traditional uniforms, they wear pants with suspenders and have bible verses on their backs instead of numbers. They rely on their premier running back, Speedy Ezekiel and linebackers Brother ‘Mad Dog’ Matthias and Henry ‘Hellfire n Brimstone’ McCracken . Don't overlook these guys or else they might get medieval on your heinie!

One of the newer teams in the WMLMF is the Cherokee Nation I needed a team to round out the league to an equal number, so I used an old 100% hand painted Redskins team that I made sometime in the mid-90's. I named the players after how they perform on a board, hence the names Little Turtle, Runs In Circles and Scares The Sheep. I won't go into his name as this is a family chat board and there might be children present.

The next two teams are both presents from MFCA players. First up is the Hawiian Fire Lizards They were a gift from Glen Hardaway. It was Glen who got me into Fantasy teams. I used to paint and play with NFL only teams for many years. He put up some posts about teams that he made up himself, one of which was the Fire Liazards. I love this team. It was after reading about them that a bulb went off in my head. Hey, why should I paint NFL teams, when I can make uo my own?? This gave me the inspiration to create 4 team prototypes, the San Francisco Flaming Fairies, Three Mile Island Toxic Waste, Roswell Litte Greys and Kalamazoo Killer Bees. I made the Fairies, Waste and Bees, but put off the Little Greys in favor of the Sasquatch instead. After attending the Miggle convention in Detroit in 2008 I finally had the chance to meet Glen in person. We had a great time and shortly after the convention was over Glen sent me the Fire Lizards out of the blue. This is one of the prettiest teams that I have. I wish they played better, but I guess you can't always have good looks and talent at the same time.

The other Lifestyles team that I received as a gift is a team created by Lynn Weirdwolf Schmidt, the Kansas City Super Sumos. This is another team that I cherish and wish they had better luck. They are always competitive, but somehow just seem to lose the close games. They have a strong defensive line anchored by Mothra and Godzilla and a stand out wide receiver in Mr. Miyagi. They feature a mixture of Buzzball and Tudor figures and love to rub their mawashis into your face.

Last, and certainly not least, is the Potpouri Division. This is without doubt the best Division in the WMLMF. It starts with the 3 time Gumbo Bowl champions That 70's Rams Team. This is the first EF team that I ever made way back in 1974. My friend, Jim Jones, was the one who reintroduced the game to me. Like many others, I got a Tudor game in 1968 when I was 12. Not knowing anything about base tweaking or actual rules, my games became pile pushing events and I lost interest, didn't play anymore and my mother threw the game away. After graduating I met Jim, who showed me his teams. Wow, he was a very good painter and had players that actually ran straight. We played for a bit and I was so impressed that the next day we went to the store and bought a 620 game and a 510 game for extra players. Together we painted a '69 Rams team in 2 days. They weren't very good and after a few months decided that I could re-paint them as a 70's Rams team and made a few base changes. They have been this way ever since with no changes. They like to run with John Cappelletti and Lawrence McCutcheon and have the quickest defense in the league. Jack Youngblood and Fred Dreyer are especially quick and hardly a game goes by with them getting at least 1 sack.

Oh my God, they killled Kenny!” If you ever watch Comedy Central then you know which team is next. With Stan Marsh at quarterback, Butters, Pip, Kyle, Mr. Garrison, Officer Barbrady and Jimbo and Ned, I'm talking about the South Park Cows. The children are on offense and the 'adults' on defense. Of course, Chef is their coach and Big Gay Al handles the kicking. I based their uniforms loosly on the TV show, using an alternate blue instead of the ugly green jersey and made the pants a little more cow like. They are actually a very good team and can beat anyone else in the league.

Well, as it turns out, I can't post any more pics in this post. I'll do a separate teams pictures post in the gallery section later. For now, I;ll finish the league


 

As the 4th original member of the league, the Three Mile Island Toxic Waste was the last one to finally earn a playoff spot in the last season that I played. They always had the talent to win, but poor attitudes and selfishness always did them in. Jim Baker is a standout wide receiver while Dick Cheney anchors the defense.

The last 2 teams were both gifts as well. Mike Guttmann is a great painter and has done many teams for other people. He made a team for himself called the Tundra, but after a few years decided to paint a different version of them. One day I got a package in the mail and lo and behold, it had his old team in it. They are a perfect fit for the league and I call them the Artic Tundra. They are one of the prettiest teams I've ever seen and I'm very thankful of Mike's generosity.

The last team was a team that I painted for Brian Hightower. He asked me to make an 11 man team based on the Sharks from the movie On Any Given Sunday. After that. He wanted me to paint 11 more. A couple of years later he decided that he wanted me to have them, so I thanked him and dubbed them the Pacific Sharks. They are a very strong team with a lot of speed. They are not only movie stars, but they also have the distinction of being the Postal League champions. What's the Postal League you ask? A few years ago we had a league where you mailed your team to another coach who played a game using your team and a different one sent by another coach. After he played the game, he sent 1 team to one coach and the other team to a different coach. Each coach used his own solitaire rules and board. To be successful you had to have a versatile team that could perform on any board and under different rule sets. The Sharks won the title and still hold the crown as we only had the 1 season. Their quarterback is Chevy Chase (Land Shark), and you're not.

Thanks guys. You caught me right in the middle of posting this. I had to alter quite a bit and it took a lot of time. Also, I ran out of allotted picture posts for some reason, but I see that I can add them now. That's strange.Anyways, here's the rest of the pics of teams
