    I might be winning a sizable sum of money as the result of two of my fantastic Fantasy football teams. Other than my terrible Shonn Greene picks, I did a great job. I could possibly be on my way to my best fantasy football season ever (barring injuries).

    I manage the BluVelvetUnderground (baseball) and the LA Clash (basketball). No football, so I'm waiting. Although these keeper leagues are pretty active in the off season.

    I drafted a bunch of players at the beginning of last year's NBA season and did absolutely nothing after.

    I just need some guys that would like to score some TDs... I have Steven Jackson, Knowshon Moreno, Cadillac Williams, and Brandon Marshall whom all are getting the ball enough... but not getting it across the stripe.

    I'll answer this questions seriously. I like fantasy sports because it keeps me more interested in the entire league rather than just the Chicago Bears. I'm constantly wanting to see how other games are going and if any of my other players produced any points. It definitely promotes ADD as well. If you get bored watching one game there is always another game to flip to and watch intensely.

    So it's basically just gay squared.

    There is a lot of truth to this... Would I give a fuck about the rest of the NFL (beside the Vikings) if not for fantasy football? No.

    Another way to look at it. I don't watch Nascar or Formula One or Indy car, because why would I wanna watch cars go around in circles for hours?

    But I love horse racing and dog racing. My wagering dollar gives me a vested interest. That and the races at most last 2+minutes lol.

    Baseball- Cheddar's Cousins slaying in the third place game this week.

    Football- Cheddar's cousins (ESPN free) 2-0 and lookin' good. And- BISP (yahoo private league +/-$500.00 pot) also 2-0 but lookin' a bit shakey. Had Ryan Grant as my # 1 pick at 10th spot. Had to replace him with Hillis. Lucky for me McMoy showed up last week. Hope he continues that pace.

    So I am a big Packers fan and I need 14 points from Cutler this week to pull out the victory. Perhaps I should have followed Fax's moronic footsteps and sit the QB going against my team. Matt Ryan would have led me to victory.

    So those piece of shit good for nothing runs Jacobs got at the end of last game grabbed my opponent 12 very late points. Now I have a 10 point lead and my opponent has Welker. Fuck. Thank god I'm going to GBV tonight otherwise I'd be shitting bricks tonight. I love my team is great but I can't seem to win for life of me. 1-3 here we come...

    Nothing like having Ryan Grant, Reggie Bush and Knowshawn Moreno as your top 3 RB's.


    Yep, I'm 0-4.

    I need 1 point from Welker tonight, then I am 2-2 after looking hopeless the first two weeks. Reason? Hillis. Next to last pick in the draft, too.

    I feel for you on Knowshon, I have him too...

    I was however smart enough to trade away Vick on Friday lol. I'd love to have Vick starting on my team, except I have the one QB better than him- Peyton Manning. He's the only guy up to Sunday I'd start over Vick on a weekly basis. So Vick was expendable.

    I ended up trading Vick and Cadillac for MB3 (since I already have Felix Jones too), Flacco, and a 5th round pick in next year's draft (I'm in a 3-team keeper league), so round 1 is really like round 3 1/2.
