  1. At the rate my team is going in one of my leagues, my DST position will have a 'Q' designation on it by the end of the week.
  2. Enjoyed seeing this for the first time in several years. Worth the 4 minutes to watch the whole thing.
  3. https://www.cnn.com/2021/09/21/health/us-coronavirus-tuesday/index.html The average rate of Covid-19 deaths in the 10 least vaccinated states was more than four times higher over the past week than the rate in the 10 most vaccinated states, according to a CNN analysis. In the least vaccinated states, roughly eight people out of every 100,000 residents died of Covid-19 over the past week, compared with only about two out of every 100,000 people in the 10 most vaccinated states.
  4. So, the recaps from Yahoo were kind of harsh, and a little personal, this week. Yes, I did go 0-2, but still. Recap provided by Yahoo from Kev's league: A donkey could have managed the team better than you this week 5fouls. And, that seems appropriate considering that most of your ex-wives think you're an ass. Sure, Amari Cooper had a bazillion points Week 1. But, you should have anticipated that he would be a bust in Week 2. If you would have had the slightest amount of foresight, you would have dropped Cooper and picked up Freddie Swain or K.J. Osborn instead. When flipping through Webster's, your picture is listed under 'Dufus'. Better luck next week, but you'll most likely suck again. Recap provided by Yahoo for KDB's league: We like your take charge attitude 5 fouls. You saw the big zero Mike Gesicki gave you in Week 1 and you acted on it. Picking up Cole Kmet gave you 1 whole extra point this week than you got from the tight-end position position on Week 1. Now, if you would just taken that initiative to the next level, you may have accumulated the other 30 points or so you needed to win. Dak Prescott? You could have relegated his whopping 7.48 points to the bench and picked up Taylor Heinicke, and his 29+ points instead. And, please don't tell me that you played Tee Higgins over Courtland Sutton just because you are a Bengals fan. Heck, if you're a Bengals fan, you should know better than to ever expect something positive to come out of that organization. In fact, you might just take your fandom to a new level and finish with a 3-4 win season, just like the Bengals will.
  5. @Leatherneckshad the best pick percentage this week at 100% (1 for 1). He just needs to increase his volume if he wants to win. I, on the other hand, obviously have no fricking clue what i am doing. I added Blue to the standings so that when all you guys eventually pass me up, I won't be in last place.
  6. Let's not forget that the Jags went 1=15 last year. Even if they only finish with 4-5 wins this season, that's a significant improvement.
  7. Yes. Sir. Gaylord is #4. In addition to Davillillo & Mota (list not in age order), Kaat Yaz Perry Tiant
  8. Luis is the one. He was the starting pitcher for the Red Sox in Game 6 of the 1975 series.
  9. On the subject of Kaat. Man, I hope my mind is as sharp as his is when I'm 83. He hasn't lost a thing as an announcer. Of of my favorites.
  10. Yes. Yaz is one of the Hall of Famers. 2 more to go, including one of the Hall of Famers.
  11. Pete Rose was born on 4/14/1941, making him roughly 80 and a half years old. He played his last game on 8/17/1986. There are SIX former MLB players who also played their last game in the decade of the 1980's, who are still alive and OLDER than Pete, Two of the six are former Dodger teammates Vic Davillilo (85) and Manny Mota (83). Davillilo played in 7 games in 1980 at age 44, while Mota made a cameo pinch hitting appearance in 1982. The other 4 are more prominent names. Who are they? Hint #1 - 2 of them are in the Hall of Fame Hint #2 - 2 of them, like Rose, were eye-witnesses to one of Baseball's most memorable plays.
  12. Results of Week 2 Rico - 9 Seeking - 8 IndyKev - 8 KDB - 8 Billingsley - 7 ledies - 7 5fouls - 4 Leathernecks - 1 BluegrassIU - 0 Season to Date Rico - 17 Billingsley - 13 Ledies22 - 13 Seeking6 - 11 5fouls - 10 Leathernecks - 9 IndyKev - 8 KDB - 8 BluegrassIU - 0 I'll try to get this in a nicer format in time for next week.
  13. HSN standings after Week 2 for those that can't see the results Kev's League 2-0: Sagamore; Dgambill 1-1: Billingsley, IndKev, NotIthatlives; Leathernecks, ParakeetJones, PAHossier, BluegrassIU, 5fouls 0-2: Rico; Ledies22 High score of the week - IndyKev 1ith 181.92 KDB's League 2-0: Seeking6; Btownqb 1-1: Steubenhoosier; KoB2011; TDHoosier; B_A; MrFlynn03; IndyKev; PAHoosier; 5fouls 0-2: KDB; BeerBQ High score of the week - Seeking6 with 168.32
  14. 'Uninformed morons' is a heck of a lot nicer than what my wife calls me.
  15. I feel like I should insert a Jim Mora meme here.
  16. I will never wish injury or illness on a player, but I'm really hoping Aaron Rodgers decides to retire during the opening kickoff tonight. That's about the only way I win either of my two HSN leagues this week.
  17. With the Covid chaos, it's not been necessary, but schools like Wisconsin, Northwestern and Purdue have used redshirting frequently in the past. So, even if you had 13 schollies, only 11 or 12 were actually playing in a given season.
  18. Lamar Jackson has hooked up twice with Tyrann Mathieu already
  19. Well, at the beginning of the week I put Courtland Sutton into my lineup. Last night I talked myself into going Tee Higgins instead. I should take a cue from my wife and not listen to anything I say.
