Are You Ready for Some Football!?

September 4, 2008

This afternoon, the defending Superbowl Champ New York Giants host (Colt Brennan and) the Washington Redskins, a game that will kick off the 2008 NFL Football Season. Seventeen plus weeks of beer drinking, score checking, and overall lazy unproductive Sundays are on the horizon. Caaaaaaan yoooooouuuuu dig it?

I can almost hear the collecting groans from wives and girlfriends across the country, as their significant other morphs into a pizza eating, tv watching fatty in front of their eyes!

And even though I still maintain that baseball is the greatest sport on earth (yes I’m one of the few), followed closely by MMA, and then basketball… football has found a soft spot in my heart. I could care less about rivalries or which teams perform well or even who will win the Super Bowl. For me, it’s all about who’s on my Fantasy Team(s)! As long as they stay healthy and perform, I’m G double O D good!

Here’s whatcho boy got. Whatchu t’ink?

Fantasy Football Draft Results

August 26, 2008

So we’re 4 picks away from completing our Fantasy Football Draft for this year.


There are 10 of us and it’s taking painfully loooong.

Since we couldn’t find a good time when all of us could meet up for a live, draft party, we decided to do the ol’ standy, the convenient method of drafting electronically. This year’s product of choice: a spreadsheet in Google Docs (where you can trash talk/chat right in the spreadsheet window… priceless!). Trouble is, many of us work or have a life on the weekends, so you end up getting lost in the draft process. The call or text message from the person drafting before you inevitably comes, and is followed by a “Wait what? What happened? Who got picked after me?”

This rigamarole repeats itself 18 times until the completion of the draft.

After my last pick, there was a defensive run in the 13th and 14th rounds: Brian Urlacher, David Harris, DeMeco Ryans, Kerry Rhodes, Jon Beason, Gibril Wilson, Tampa Bay, Seattle, Bob Sanders, and Kirk Morrison. I’ve always been a defense shmefense kinda guy once the top tier dudes are gone, so I went Warrick Dunn.

Stop laughing.

I figgah since my last 4 picks will be D, D, D, K (as it is every year), I might as well fill my last bench spot with a make or break type. Dunn’s back in Tampa Bay where he was a quality fantasy back, so perhaps something magical (or miraculous) will happen? 😛

Here’s a breakdown of how my 2008 draft turned out so far. Gimme some feedback on my team. Be honest. Lemme have it. I can take it. I’m a man. But I won’t mind compliments either. Holla atcho boy!

(In a QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, Flex, Flex, Flex, TE, K, DEF, D, DB scenario)

Donovan McNabb
Marc Bulger

Brian Westbrook
Larry Johnson
Jonathan Stewart
Ronnie Brown
Ahmad Bradshaw
Warrick Dunn

Andre Johnson
Torry Holt
Brandon Marshall
Bryant Johnson
Derrick Mason

Tony Gonzalez





P.S. I wouldn’t mind your choices for sleepers this year either… 🙂
