About a month ago, I gushed about how awesome Big Brother was this season. Murphy’s Law dictates that when a show starts out so freakingly good that it must crash and burn before the end, (Lost anyone?), so of course Big Brother had to totally blow chunks as this season came to a close. I’m… Continue reading Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater
Kevin twittered that the world was upside down because he wasn’t playing fantasy football this year but I am. Ha. Today is my first game. (We’re being fashionably late.) Here are my starters, for now:\ Marc Bulger, QB, St Louis\ Torry Holt, WR, St Louis\ Santana Moss, WR, Washington\ Joseph Addai, RB, Indianapolis\ Laurence Maroney,… Continue reading It’s my favorite time of the year.
Kevin and Max spent Saturday at a computer conference-thingie. Max loved it. Much more than I was expecting. He did utilize the markers and paper I sent along though. He wants to present sometime on animation and scratch. I am not sure what computer professional would want to listen, but hey- go for it, kid.… Continue reading My boys
The Redskins won, which YAY! But they won in overtime, which practically negates the win in my mind. The NFL keeps making minor changes to rules (to get higher scoring games, imo) but they need to focus on the OT rules. Football is about offense and defense, with one half working to get the other… Continue reading I’m meh for football
The end of the Arizona/St. Louis game had me booing the officials. BOOOOO! The ref asked St. Louis wether they wanted to accept the a penalty. They declined, which set up a free kick for Arizona. Realizing this, St Louis changed their mind and the officials let them. Hello? St. Louis was asked, and already… Continue reading BOOOOOOOO!
I still hate school. And of course Brian woke up very early all weekend, making me wake up early too. But today, when I had to get up to take care of Max, Brian slept in. Grrr. And I think I sent Max to school in the rain, without a coat. I am a bad,… Continue reading Random thoughts
Is anyone else annoyed at the combo movie/basketball ads showing on TNT during playoff games? Not only are they lame tie-ins for the movies, they’re super lame promos for playoff basketball, which really doesn’t need a whole lot of help.\ And as an added bonus, they’re some of the most forced, weak and painful stretched… Continue reading TNT + NBA = Whore!
It’s Fantasy Football time!! We had our draft last night, and for having the last pick, I think I did OK. It’s a fairly risky team, but I think I’ll do well. Here are my guys: Starters: Matt Hasselbeck Jamal Lewis Duce Staley Chad Johnson Amani Toomer Freddie Jones (TE) Jeff Wilkins Patriots Reserves: Joey… Continue reading Fantasy Football 2004 – Draft Night Redux!
I sure am glad I stayed up… that was one amazing game. The Colts came back from 21 points down with 4 minutes left in the fourth quarter and won! That was some insane football. Better yet, I’ve got Marvin Harrison in my fantasy league. I was none too happy with my fantasy league. I… Continue reading What Blowout?
Watching football, curled up on the couch with the laptop catching up on blogs, e-mail, etc and I just noticed that CBS’s new penalty notice underneath the little scorebox in the top corner of the screen looks just like a piece of corn on the cob. CBS, what’s up with that? Are you being paid… Continue reading Football Notes
