My First Fantasy Football Draft

27 Aug

You may have noticed I was missing in action yesterday. My absence was in part because of recovering from a night of drunk debauchery but also because I was preparing for my first ever Fantasy Football Draft. Like any good student I had waited till the last-minute to study. A guy friend, who has mastered fantasy gave me this advice:

1. Draft Philadelphia Eagles’ running back LeSean McCoy first. I was pick number 4, McCoy went as number 2 in our draft. So  I failed at that one.

2. Make sure to get the San Francisco 49ers as your Defense Strategy. It took me about half-way through the draft to figure out how to pick at team for defense strategy so I failed at one and evened up with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

3. Whatever you do don’t draft Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo. Okay this one I definitely didn’t do. I instead went with Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick.

My grade so far would definitely be an C.

The Video You’ve Been Waiting For

17 Apr

For sometime now I have heard talk of a video of LA Clipper Blake Griffin dunking to the song “Move Bitch” by Ludacris. I have long searched the YouTube under world for this video and finally found it. Although I would have liked to see more of a variety of dunks in the video . . . hint hint anyone else who wants to make Griffin dunk montage video.

WARNING: This video includes violence toward Laker Pau Gasol which as a blogger I do not promote or support. I love Gasol and believe this was a foul. But for all of you Griffin fans, please enjoy.
