... for Plaxico Burress at any rate.

Plaxico is my bad penny. He keeps turning up on a couple of my fantasy teams year after year. True, one of them this year is the Dynasty League but still, I could have cut him.

more Fantasy Football rambling )
Somehow, some way, I'm doing really well in my HopSFA Fantasy Football leagues.

This is just inconceivable.

I've played in other, non HopSFA, leagues and I've done very well, never quite won a league, but have finished top 2 or 3 on a regular basis. Over in HopSFA my record has been closer to .500 (at best) and I've never made a playoff. So I figure our HopSFA leagues must have some pretty damn high quality ownership.

This year though, in part because of some quality drafting, in part because of luck, most of the bounces have been going my way.

fantasy football rambling )
Well football season is in full swing and I'm once again playing Fantasy Football.

Unlike those other guys who play Fantasy Football, I'm well aware that I'm a nerd and there's nothing cool about it.

I've had a good 1st weekend 3-1 in my games. But I figured I might as well and look back and analyze what I was thinking at the time.

First up: Alpha draft )
Crisis in Ellicott City

So I'm straightening-up in the kitchen last night when I stumble across the Survival Guide for Betrayal at the House on the Hill..

So [livejournal.com profile] yerbrainondrugs, you want to see your guide again? Place a bag of unmarked U.S. currency in small....

In a related story
[livejournal.com profile] mnemoscat mentioned she might know of a store that has a copy, but my sieve like mind has already lost the information. Hopefully she'll post it here

Arch is at the theater with his latest reviews
In other news, [livejournal.com profile] josabry, [livejournal.com profile] metromancer and I saved my wife the pain of watching Spider-Man 3 on Friday. God was that bad. And it was all in the script. The acting was okay; the directing likewise, special effects pretty damn good (for my not so huge television), even the plot was largely acceptable by comic-book movie standards, but the script execution was a total disaster. Such a bad movie with such good movie postersx

** stars for some fleeting moments of enjoyment and Tobey Maguire dancing a la Saturday Night Fever and Funny Face

We also watched Meet the Robinsons on Sunday. That was a lot better than I expected. Probably due to John Lasseter (of Pixar fame) being a major contributor. The movie is more predictable than guessing what a Republican politician will wear on his jacket lapel but the execution is solid and kinda funny.


Meanwhile George Michael (no not that one) has this evening's wrestling report to go with sports

Oh and Opening Day is today, which would be more important if I didn't live/work near the Orioles. At least they gave up on Jay Gibbons. It's going to be a long hard slog for the O's, but I think they finally have really committed to rebuilding, as opposed to their half-hearted efforts of years past.

Oh and Dave W. made me an intriguing trade offer in Omega, but I don't think my team can afford it. I've not gone over the numbers yet though.

In our final news this evening
Xandrapolis continues to grow and grow. Perhaps you'd like to join the planning committee?
Instead of spending my morning revisiting my NCAAB Bracket over and over again, I did one quick review this morning and moved on...

...straight to planning my offseason for my Fantasy Football team.

How sad is that?
So last night I went over to [livejournal.com profile] metromancer & [livejournal.com profile] mnemoscat's house for [livejournal.com profile] yerbrainondrugs' surprise birthday party. For the brief time I had to stay I enjoyed it. [livejournal.com profile] metromancer got [livejournal.com profile] yerbrainondrugs a Washington Redskins birthday cake. More specifically a "John Riggins in Super Bowl XVII running through a Dolphins defender" Birthday cake.

Apparently [livejournal.com profile] yerbrainondrugs has it as either a screensaver or wallpaper on his computer his LJ avatar which you can see in the comments section.

It was good to see others whom I'd not seen in a bit, or at least a few weeks. One person I did run into was [livejournal.com profile] joshthestampede, who happens to be commissioner of the Omega League.

I just lost Matt Leinart for the season so I'm allowed to pick-up another QB. But who the hell do I pick up? Cleo Lemon? Gus Frerotte? That's the kind of pickings I have to choose from.

I've still got five starting QBs (Eli Manning, Jason Campbell, Kurt Warner (replaced Matt Leinart), Daunte Culpepper, & Trent Edwards) and I can't keep any fill-in QB beyond this season. I'm tempted to just wait and see if someone more appealing pops up in future weeks.

Oh, and I left my briefcase & Bananagrams there. Sigh....I shouldn't have two Woodchuck ciders on a Tuesday night.

A busy day

We went to my in-laws so that my wife could (belatedly) make a quilt for Matthew's birthday. It's a Cars quilt and she wasn't sure if she could handle it on her own, hence consulting with her Mom.

Meanwhile I was on Matthew duty and we had a reasonably good time by ourselves, even if he wouldn't nap. He always has a hard time napping there. Of course, he has a hard time falling asleep anywhere, so we typically take him for a drive. But getting him out of the van is difficult and there's a long, very bright, sun exposed walk to my in-laws' house.

Oh well.

The Redskins game was entertaining, the Ravens game was not, even though they won.

My fantasy football teams are going to explode practically any moment, when Travis Henry gets suspended for using illegal substances.


The quilt turned out nice though.
Yes..yes.. be ready for post spam

More FF whining )

Oh god am I tired of looking at Fantasy Football reading. Can the season start?
You know you have issues when you sign up for a Dynasty League

I clearly have issues )
God I hate Fantasy Football. It's like an addiction that I can't get rid of.

And here I go again )

In the end, I think I did okay, though I don't have much in trade bait. That's a little disappointing, but it could be worse.
