Game Time


Its been a weekend of games. We played some “pass the trash” (the name of the game in polite company) with Josh and Linda.
It was a good time, although the usually eloquent Linda called it at one point... “a stupid game for jerks“. I think thats the funniest thing I've heard in a while.

It was opening day for another season of kickball. We won of course. It helps that we are the only group in the league thats played before.
We didn't field a whole team due to the redskins game, although I think we found some new pitching talent in Paul.
I'm going to have to smack some priorities into these donkeys.

Rob and Brad talked us into playing fantasy football this year. We're losing pretty bad as I type this: 29 to 55. Now THIS is a stupid game for jerks.
Yes, thats right; we're losing to a guy in Kiev who is probably craning his neck in a crowd of a hundred people trying make out a fuzzy image on the community 9 inch black and white TV.

This guy in Kiev actually went to an Irish Pub and suffered through the atrocity that was the Broncos-Dolphins game on a projection screen television. On the plus side, I got to watch two of your starting RBs put up a combined 5 points. This guy in Kiev COULD have stayed to watch the sure to be equally atrocious Cardinals-Giants game...but decided to come home after seeing his TE score a TD in the 1st quarter.

Thankfully, after Week 1, this guy in Kiev will be back in the states and be able to watch football as it's meant to be watched. Either on a couch or in a sports bar, mildly buzzed off of shitty beer and stuffed full of chicken wings, remote in hand.

As for the score, you've got three guys active tomorrow night, a hell of a lot can still happen.

You should see my wife. I think she's going to have a heart attack.

She didn't need the sonogram to tell her it was a boy, she's been jonezin' for football the way most pregnant women lust after ice cream.
Fantasy Football + Hormones is turning out to be a scary combination....

If you look at the macthup page for your teams, you'll notice that 100% of the people picked John to win the game.

Just wait until tonight, John, when she gets to see three of her players all scoring points. Pointlessly getting aggravated at an incomplete pass by a player you don't care about playing a in game that means nothing to you in a sport you don't play.
