Pitt-cher Perfect

OK, this is now the twentieth winning game recap in a row I’ve written. By now you know the drill:

Description of my personal game-watching experience that is relevant only to me
Statement of obvious factoids and game trends that have been thoroughly discussed on other sites
Nugget of insight that I self-importantly feel has been under-reported elsewhere [...]

Ladies and gentlemen, CJ Fair
