Stereotypes: Fantasy Football

My friend (the 3-0 Brian friend) posted this to our Facebook walls last night so I thought I would share. For the most part managers are a mixture of these types, but we nailed a few on to some of us. Any they’re missing? I agree with one commenter: you have to get the newbie […]

Week 3: Last-Minute Heartbreak

The swear words, insults and exclamations I texted late Sunday night I can’t even begin to think about typing into this blog.  Yes, I have dropped to 0-3. I am poised to be buying the first round the next time my four best friends and I find ourselves at the same bar. I’m destined to […]

Dodgers Celebration in D-Backs Pool Lost on East Coast

When the Los Angeles Dodgers came to town (Phoenix that is) July 8, the Arizona Republic had eight reporters out to cover the game. Eight.

Ten friends and an imaginary trophy

Ah, it’s that time of year again. The season kicks off tomorrow, The League is back on TV and the insults are flying in full force. Hello fantasy football, how I’ve missed you so. At an extended family dinner Tuesday night, this blog kept making its way through various discussions. My aunt asked what I […]
