Touchdown!

Michael Treffiletti -- who lives in Saratoga County and teaches in Colonie -- won $100k by finishing first in a national fantasy football competition. And get this: his brother finished third -- they had agreed to team up and split the prize if one of them won. Treffiletti's win was sealed with a touchdown by the Saints' Darren Sproles, and as he told YNN: "I don't like the Saints. I don't like their jerseys. But I'm going to buy one tomorrow maybe and wear it for like a week. I love the guy. I'm going to write him a letter." Said his brother before the final weekend: "Not counting the year our house almost burned down because of the chimney fire, this will be the most eventful Christmas we've ever had."
