The time has come to sign up for one of our fantasy football leagues, if you want to play this year. The first "open" league is full, but there are still spots available in the second, where you'll get to play against, ahem, a very distracted tech writer during the busiest part of his year. You don't even have to like football to enjoy playing this proto-RPG. Go sign up now and see why it's so ridiculously addictive.
Oh, and the TR BBQ looks to have been a success this year. Reports and pictures are coming in now. I very much had hoped to go, but wound up distracted in various ways, including by heavy machinery, and am currently enduring extensive self-flagellation over missing the thing entirely. Guys, next year, we need to descend upon the Lake Michigan shoreline like locusts and mercilessly devour their cooked meats.
