Idrinksport Fanasy Recap Week 6

6 games into the Fantasy Season we have a log jam of teams at 3-3, with Gonzo n 10 continues its early season dominance at 5-1.  Playoff are getting closer teams will look to make moves to ensure their team is in the position they need.

UC Bearcats (2-4)  83.34  vs. Batman & Robin (4-2) 79.20.  Upset of the year so far, the offensively challenged bearcats used a strong performance from Peyton Manning to shock  Batman & Robin.

 VaBeach Orange (2-4) 76.27 vs Beazy (3-3) 65.13. Someone alert the presses there is life in Va Beach Orange.  The Orange is the second hottest team in the league right now with a W2 streak.

 Number Juan(3-3) 68.95 vs Steel Breeze (4-2).  Number Juan pulled a fast one on the breeze as he used Steel Breeze own beloved Steelers D against him for the victory.  Dirty? Or Gamenship

lvlaintown (3-3) 66.64 vs America’s Team (3-3) 92.51.  The cheese is slowly melting in lvlaintown’s front office as the team has dropped 3 straight. Execs are gathering up crackers and chips to help stop the flow.

ATL SB Bound (2-4) 82.21 vs Gonzo n 10 (5-1) 86.75.  This battle of falcon homers watched gonzo n 10 keep up its winning streak and reach a league high 4 games.

Swissy (2-4) 68.95 vs Endzone Boyz (3-3) 82.86 Schaub’s aerial attack and Steven Jackson ground game overwhelmed swissy, and endzone boyz picked up the W

The Hangover Chronicles: Preemptive Failure PT. II

June 30th, 2009 was the last episode of the Hangover Chronicles and many devout followers have been looking for a spin off of this great series for quite some time.  “Put em Down” Brown’s great series is still being syndicated at idrinksport.com but we needed some fresh content.  I suppose you could say this blog effort is kind of like that last season of Chappelle’s show, some funny stuff for sure, but hosted by someone else and just never quite felt right. 

 

Getting to the destination. I began Saturday with a beer at kickoff of the Syracuse Pittsburgh game and would continue to crush 7 beers by 3pm.  Mostly Bud Selects in the beginning and quite frankly, they went down so easy you might as well called them the Syracuse Defense.  I then began drinking the tall boys at Buffalo Wild Wings, 24 oz Coors Lights on draft.  Finishing up the night at a Tavern with some 12 oz light beers I had reached my destination as slurring was evident and quite possibly I could have been drooling while playing pool.

 

The Hangover Setting in.  We’ve all been there before, the nasty headache after all day drinking.  The dreaded hangover before you even go to sleep!  A nasty headache usually leads to either throwing up or passing out…luckily I passed out.

 

The Cure attempt: 2 Aleve. All day relief.  Before passing out, I luckily took some Aleve.  The brand slogan was catchy, but all I was really hoping for is a solid night relief, not the desired all day relief Aleve brags about.

 

Results.  The results were great, no headache or overwhelming sickness when I woke up.  Considering I drank little water and had no real hangover, I would definitely recommend this cure and will possibly try it again in the near future if I’m ever stupid enough to drink that much again.

Disclaimer: The above solution was done by professionals and should not be attempted at home. We don’t suggest trying anything we do at home.

Is the world falling apart?

Before last week I lived by only a few truths in this world.  Death, Taxes, ESPN Mock Drafts, and that Wrangler commercials accurately depicted how Brett Favre lived his life.  Fast forward to this week and I’m still paying taxes and preparing for death, but my two other solids in life are taking a solid beating.

 

Tackling Favre’s issue first. Favre is accused by deadspin.com of having sent indecent pictures of his penis to a jets employee two years ago.  Roger Goodell and the NFL are looking into the story and I’m sure we will learn more in the coming weeks.  What do I think?

 

I find it hard to believe that Jenn Sterger really went public about something like this with a website like deadspin.com.  The site consistently lacks a moral compass and in my personal opinion, constantly exploits women with their images.  So who do we trust?  A Golden Gun Slinger in wranglers or a woman who became famous for her looks?  I have a hard time believing something didn’t happen, but I also have a hard time believing that this is the right avenue for someone to come forward with a case like this. If you think logically about the story, would anyone with credibility go to a website like TMZ or deadspin.com for justice? 

 

Moving on to Mel Kiper of ESPN.  Josh Luchs, a former NFL agent, came forward to Sports Illustrated about his dealings with college kids and how basically he would pay Student Athletes in hopes that they would eventually use his services.  Not really a ground breaking story but a good read over at cnnsi.com.  The damning piece of the story for Mel Kiper is as follows:

"Viper, how are you?" Gary said. That’s what he called Mel, Viper or Vipe. "Viper, I’m sitting here with the best defensive lineman in college football. Do you know who that is?"

"You must be with Willie Howard," Mel said.

 

Gary used Mel like that all the time. In the agent business, people know Gary and Mel are close, and some people suspect that Mel ranks players more favorably if they are Gary’s clients

I’ll be the first to say that I could care less if this hurts Mel Kiper’s career, but you have to believe that it will. The reason he has a job with ESPN is to legitimately break down NFL drafts with an unbiased opinion.  If any of this is even remotely true, it’s going to be kind of hard to listen to him in April as he breaks down a mock draft.  See: Kiper has denied any wrong doing according to profootballtalk.com and ESPN’s Mike and Mike Radio show.

 

SMFH!
