Meat Loaf's ESPN Fantasy Football Charity League team has overcome a 43-point halftime deficit to defeat Jerry Cantrell’s JC Aroma Of Tacoma 224-214 in the championship of the Alice in Chains & Friends Fantasy Football Charity League at the end of the NFL’s regular season.
According to ESPN, this means that Meat Loaf’s chosen charity, The Painted Turtle, will receive all the proceeds from an online auction of items donated by all the league’s participants and others.
Going under the hammer are CDs, books and T-shirts donated by Meat Loaf, a guitar from Slayer, a signed Jamie Moyer Philadelphia Phillies jersey donated by Duff McKagan, a Fender Strat signed by Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and posters signed by Alice in Chains and Cypress Hill.
ESPN reports: "This was the second year of the Alice in Chains & Friends Fantasy Football Charity League on ESPN.com. Former NFL player Matt Willig won last year’s title and his charity, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, earned more than $10,000 from last year’s charity after the 2009 NFL season."
