Instant Hippo Thoughts and Wild Card 4 of 6, Bitches! Game Thread

There were three fixtures played yesterday.  Well, two fixtures and a woodchipper feeding. [Closed Captioning for the Hard of Hippo provided by the Church of the Immaculate Deception, Rev. E. Mayhem] Humps [Colts] and Bills [Wooooooo!] was actually quite compelling.  [Woooooooooooo!] You had two analytics-friendly coaches, who had the bollocks to...coach that

Instant Hippo Thoughts – Week 16, #NuAIDS Season
