Are you ready for some football!

13 Sep 2009

So this week I entered two fantasy football leagues. One was an auction for "real men" then I also entered a pansy snake draft in the WCOFF (World Championship of Fantasy Football). Both teams I drafted are excellent for the format. It's a PPR (point per reception) league which definitely sways the value of the players significantly.
I got three players in both drafts: Peyton Manning, Dwayne Bowe, and Greg Olsen. I'm very high on all three guys and they were bargains. I think Olsen is going to contend for the #1 TE in the league fantasy wise this year.

So now I'm laid out on the couch for the day to sweat the games and then play online. I've been up since about 8:00pm. Last night I ended up partying till about 9:30am. I don't go out very often at all, but when I do, I often go ALL out. It was fun, but nights like that mess with your schedule. Luckily for me I'm used to chaotic sleep schedules so I'll fix it tonight. I ended up watching a movie and the end of the Real World. Saw Taking Lives. I set my Tivo to record anything that Angelina Jolie is in... well, because she's such a fabulous actress :-)

Best purchase I've made in years is the Arkeg! Coolest thing for a bachelor pad you can imagine. It's an arcade system that is complete with every game made before 2000 on al the platforms. I was playing Techmo Bowl last night, love that game and miss it! Not only is it an arcade, but you can surf the internet, listen to music, watch movies, do karaoke.... and most importantly... get this.... it's also got a keg of beer in it! There is a handle on the left of the machine that you can just pour straight into a glass for any draft beer you want to fill it with. Now my life is complete!
