Re: TR Fantasy Football 2018

This was the first year that I was able to participate in the draft due to changes in work. This will be a good chance to see if ignorance can work as a draft strategy. As well as hoping that the Vikings have a good year.

I think we've stumbled upon a dating method for future archaeologists. Estimate the age of the geek by the calculator they used in college. :P The generation before mine used slide rules. I was pretty much right on the cusp of the switchover to calculators. One of my high school math teachers still...

I know I've complained about it before, but I still don't understand how Dunkin coffee can be decent one time, and then complete garbage the next. Same people, same equipment, same beans, same everything --- during peak hours (so it's not sitting). I just don't get it. I rarely drink the stuff now,...

We don't get that cold here very often (some years we don't get there at all), but it looks like this winter is gonna be a cold one. -10F predicted for New Year's Eve, and -11F for this coming Thursday night.

Re: NFL 2017

Ugh, there is no one I want to root for in there. Here's to hoping it's at least a good SB. The Steelers are the only team I would "like" to see win from the AFC for Ryan Shazier. They're also the only real challengers for the Patriots unless Kansas City have sobered up from their roller ...

Re: NFL 2017

It’s a nice change to be able watch my team take on the Packers live. Being over east for Christmas (Queensland) and the change in time zone makes the game start at at reasonable time, 11:30am rather than early in the morning. Also kinda amusing looking at the temperature there as we’re rapidly head...

It's nice to find that my team doesn't suck this season.

Thankfully my Vikings are playing awesome defense so far.

It has been a problem for not just the Indian side, all of the sides from the sub-continent have struggled on the bouncy pitches you find elsewhere. Just like we struggle when we head to the sub-continent as well. Just look at how long it took Australia to win a series in India. Yap, Australia side...

Silly mid on and slips, the twitch cricket, positions. I've played em' both. At least in the slips you've got a chance. Silly mid you're nothing but a target. A lot depends on who the batsman is when fielding in close. With some you're actually quite safe as they don't have the power to hit that ha...

Yeah, 680 for 8 and declared is a massive innings in anyone's book. I sometimes wonder if I'm the only American who understands and appreciates cricket. Not a bad effort considering they were 5 for 94 still a couple of hundred behind. Dhoni's captaincy does need to be looked at as he was far too de...
