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.

Junior Seau Dead

2 May

This is sad news the former All-Pro Linebacker, Junior Seau, was found dead Wednesday in Oceanside, CA. He died of an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound. The police are investigating to see if it was a suicide. Throughout his career he has played for the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins, and New England Patriots. No one in Seau’s family seems to believe he was capable of committing suicide.

It is weird because back in 2010 Seau was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. After he was released from jail he drove his car off a cliff. At the time Seau claimed he fell asleep at the wheel and it was not a suicide attempt. It is still unclear if his death was a suicide, maybe the investigation shed some light on what was really going on?
