With Pam Ward taking a bye week from her own awards (shouldn’t she have asked AA for permission first?), the door was opened for a new leader in the Pammies clubhouse.  Craig James, who’s used to winning his fair share of awards/tournaments around here, takes the lead this week.  Gary Danielson also continues his rise up the standings with a couple beauties this week.  Brett Favre jumps into the top five with his only performance of the season in what could be the best week of Pammy quotes so far this season.  There’s certainly a definitive theme of incredibly obvious, laughable statements amongst the winners this week.  The envelope please…
