Who's your daddy?
Week 1 provided many memorable outcomes; Tom Brady's 517 yards passing and four touchdowns in the Patriots' victory over th Dolphins, the Jets' comeback victory over the Cowboys, and Your Dad Al Davis beating Aroma Of Tacoma in a wild 124-103 game in the Alice in Chains & Friends Fantasy Football Charity League.
That last one was significant because it was Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez's team defeating AIC guitarist Jerry Cantrell's squad in their season opener, thanks in great part to Brady's 34 fantasy points. And it led to this reaction by league founder Cantrell on the message board along with a much bigger version of the photo below:

Aroma Of Tacoma
Uhhhh, that was an ugly week. Could be a long season for the Hawks with Tavaris Jackson at the helm. Maybe we'll be in the running for Andrew Luck. Prove me wrong, boys … please. They played a lot better than the Steelers, though. Looked like a pee wee team playing their dads.
Always sucks to lose Week 1. Al Davis' Evil Empire got the better of me … I think I ran out of my lessons with Yoda in the swamp a tad too soon. Division match next with Jay [Ferguson]. Here's to hoping for a win for the Seahawks, Steelers and of course the Aroma next week.
Each participant will put one valuable item up for auction by the end of the season. The league champion will get to designate which charity receives the net proceeds of the auction. More details on the auction will be announced in the coming weeks.
Weekly updates on the Alice in Chains & Friends Fantasy Football Charity League, trash talk and interviews with the owners will be published in ESPN.com's The Life and Music sections throughout the season. Members of the league also will drop by for occasional chats on SportsNation.
The other winners last week were Chris DeGarmo, who defeated Randy Wolf, and Vinnie Paul, who defeated Duff McKagan, leading to this confident message board post and the ensuing thread:
