Our fantasy football league, The Skullz, held its annual draft (which this year doubled as a “hey, let’s celebrate Cory’s baby while we’re at it” celebration) this past Saturday. As usual, the day featured a feast on pizza and chicken wings, but our new commissioner added a few new wrinkles. Tom Farmer dressed the part, complete with a sport coat and tie, and shook hands with each owner in the first round, providing them with a personalized team “T-shirt” while posing for pictures.
In the days after former NFL legend Junior Seau’s suicide, ESPN talking head and alleged journalist Skip Bayless, a man notorious for knowing absolutely nothing about anything, proved to be an expert in at least one thing: moronic Twitter messages. Continue reading →
Since the NFL is set to kickoff roughly an hour after President Obama starts his long-awaited “jobs” speech to America, I thought it would be appropriate to combine two of my favorite things into one mashed-up blog. So, I give you this:
Our fantasy football league, The Skullz, is entering its fifth season, and I thought it would be cool to share the initial lineups drafted by our group. Feel free to offer your thoughts on the rosters. Continue reading →
In my lifetime, I can think of three athletes who, in one poorly timed move, have gone from jovial, beloved figures to despised villains: Andre the Giant, Tiger Woods and LeBron James.

Many people can claim their NCAA Tournament brackets are trash. I, however, can back that up.
According to the ESPN Tournament Challenge, my second bracket ranks in 5,732,547th place, leaving me in the bottom 3.23 percentile. Sure, I’m not in actual last place, but I’d hate to see the people who are worse off than my second bracket.
