CHAMPIONSHIP!

Hey guys how are we today? I hope everyone had a nice weekend and is all pumped up to get back to work! This weekend I spent it working on my golden skin tone down at the beach. It was the first time I have been to the beach all year, and actually probably the first time I've been there in a few years. I spent the weekend in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island which quickly turned into one of my favorite summer locations in the North East. I had never been there before but spending a few days there turned me into a huge fan. It is a really nice town, kind of reminding me of Cape Cod in a lot of ways. The weather was great which helped out, and I got to visit a few friends that I hadn't seen in a long time.

I was having a great few days until I participated in my fantasy football draft last night. I know I shouldn't complain, but I'm going to complain anyways. It was a twelve team draft consisting of mostly players and a few coaches from our organization. I was told before the draft that it would be a 1 QB 2 RB 2 WR TE DEF and K starting lineup, but somehow it got switched to a 3 WR lineup after I was done drafting. It's the next morning and I'm still upset, but I'll get over it at some point in the next 12 months.

So, my lineup now looks like this. I have Tom Brady "of course" and Jay Cutler at QB, my RB's are Shonn Green, Jonathan Stewart, Chris Beanie Wells, and Matt Forte, my WR's are Randy Moss "of course again", Mike Sims-Walker, Vincent Jackson, and Sidney Rice. This is where I kind of got screwed. Because I thought we only started 2 wide outs I wasted two picks on guys that I could hit big home runs on later in the year. Once I found out that it was 3 wide outs it was two late to draft anymore guys because my bench was full. My TE is Carlson, my K is Rackers, and my DEF is the Saints. If V-Jax or Rice come back at some point I say, Championship!

Now that my fantasy draft is over I don't really have anything to do for the next few weeks. I guess I'll just stare at my roster until opening day. Let me know what you think of my draft. I would have liked a better TE but there were about five of them drafted in the 4th and I didn't feel like taking one until I rounded out my bench a little bit more. By that point they were all gone.

I have two more weeks until I head back out to Arizona to test my hand. I am really looking forward to it because I hate sitting around the house without being able to do anything related to using it. I also have an appointment next week with a hand doctor in Boston to see if he notices anything out of the ordinary with the thing. We will see how that goes.

On a side note, I shaved one of the classiest and well groomed beards in town last night. Actually, it looked like I hadn't showered in a few months, so it had to go. I am not really sure what made me do it. I walked into my bathroom around midnight and just grabbed the razor and started cutting. More than a month of hard work keeping that thing looking beautiful and just like that, it's gone. Maybe I'll try it again this winter.

Anyways, thanks for reading and I hope everyone has a great day!

  1. ouch.... without that 3rd WR, your team is gonna be hurting. you better try and make a trade with one of those RBs and try to pick up a WR somewhere. trade beanie wells, his fullback just tore his knee up and without a good QB, people will be sitting on the run!

  2. If you can, try to pick up either Mike Williams (WR - TB) or Darrius Heyward-Bey WR (OAK)... both will be starting from day 1. Heyward-Bey might be gone, but Williams should be available... another real sleeper is Legedu Naanee (WR - SD)... He's probably starting opposite Malcolm Floyd. Have fun! My draft's a week from today haha
