I hate Fantasy Football!

Okay, for this week's post, I thought I'd highlight my stellar fantasy football career. This is funny only because fantasy football may be the only thing in life that I'm absolutely horrible at. Yeah, I'm being cocky, but I've saved up my trash-talking because I can't use it in my league!

Let me explain to you how bad I am at this fantasy crap. The first year that I played, I led the league all season long. I thought to myself: "wow, this is fun, I'm going to win this money!". Then , in the first round of the playoffs, I lost because all of my players were members of playoff contender teams and their coaches sat them on the bench to "save" them! I played the next year, thinking that that could never happen again. Boy, was I wrong! The very next season, I was in 2nd and 3rd place all season and once again lost in the first round of the playoffs. Since then, I have finished in last place or next to last place every year! It doesn't matter if I do a live draft or auto-pick. Right now, if you don't play fantasy, I've lost you. That's okay.

Last year, I played in an NFL pick 'em league. I finished in last place! And, no offense, ladies but there were three girls in that league. You'd think I never watched football, AND I DO! This year, I'm playing in a survival league. If you're familiar, you pick the winner of one game each week and when you're wrong, you get a "strike". When you get two strikes, you're out. The last man standing wins the money. Well, I've already gotten a strike because I refuse to be like the rest of the league and just pick whoever the Lions are playing. Lesson learned. And, for you Herd fans, I needed Chad Pennington to score 90 points on Monday night in order to win this week's matchup. He scored six. Lesson learned, trade CP. I suck at fantasy football! This is my last year! And that's what I've said the last three years!

Kanye West

Just a quick one this week.

It's funny, or ironic, rather, that in Kanye West's attempt to upstage Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMA's, he, in turn was upstaged by the President!

Two thoughts: First, I can't blame Kanye for saying what everyone else in the world was (or should be) thinking. After all, if you know me, you know how I feel about that container of no-talent, Taylor Swift. However, I can't condone the manner in which he said it. Besides, I've always said that Mr. West is a racist with a mental condition.

Secondly, how bad does it feel to be dissed by the Prez? I mean, seriously, with all that is going on in this country, the President of the United States, the most powerful human being in the world, takes time out of his schedule to call you a "jackass". Priceless! Kudos, Prez!

Finally, the most ironic part of this whole situation is that I took the time to write about two people that I absolutely despise! Urrrggghhh!!

Wednesday is now Blog Day!

Okay, so, Wednesday is now going to be Blog Day. Well, I'm going to attempt to try to make this happen. Mainly because boss man has been getting on me lately and because I'm so routine-oriented that if I don't make one day Blog Day, it will never get updated. Boss man was giving me some friendly suggestions on what to blog about and he mentioned music and sports, how appropriate and coincidental for this week!

First, I received a very meaningful gift from my aunt and uncle this past weekend. I provided DJ services for my cousin's wedding over the 4th of July weekend free of charge and they wanted to show their appreciation. So, my uncle found a CD somewhere on the World Wide Web that I've been looking for for over 10 years! Have you ever heard of Toby Beau? Well, if you like softer southern rock, like the Eagles and Dr. Hook, you'll love Toby Beau. They really only had one major hit, "My Angel Baby". My mom used to play the tape over and over again when I was a kid. I can't believe how many of the lyrics I remember! Thanks Mike and Julie!

On a completely unrelated side-note, this Saturday and Sunday is our annual trip to Cleveland for the Browns home opener. They play the Minnesota Vikings. This year, my friends and I bought an old airport shuttle and have converted it into the ultimate tailgating vehicle! So, I thought it would be appropriate to dress up an old blow-up doll in Vikings gear and hang her from the side of the bus with a sign that reads: "Brett Favre is a bitch". What do you think? Go Brownies!
