2012 fantasy football draft reaches new heights of nerdiness/awesomeness

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.

It was totally nerdy and totally amazing.

Making a racket over my bracket, or UConn is a bunch of dirty cheaters

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.

The Best TV Shows of 2010, at least according to me

It’s not been a banner year for television.

Just a few months ago, I found myself anxiously awaiting the start of the new TV season, but now, there’s only been one new show that captured my attention (AMC’s The Walking Dead, which has wrapped up its six-episode first season).

Fantasy football isn’t just numbers and nonsense

If you don’t want to read about football, stop now.

If you don’t want to read about fantasy football, stop now.

But if you want to read about brotherhood, then brutha, by all means, continue.

This Saturday, the 2010 version of The Skullz Fantasy Football League begins with our annual draft held, as usual, at the Cory S. Graham Sports Complex/Clay City Music Hall. There will be Mama Crowe’s pizza. There will be chicken wings. There will be trash talk and girl talk, groans over missed opportunities in the draft and laughter over poor picks.
