A massive snowstorm hit Denver yesterday - we were supposed to fly out of Denver back to Washington, D.C., for Christmas. This did not happen. After a trip out to the airport and getting two flights cancelled, we returned back to Boulder by bus. The normal 1 hour bus ride took over 7. It was fairly awful. The roads were parking lots with cars stranded all over the place. Thankfully, we finally made it back home at about 8:30 last night and are stuck here in Colorado until Saturday. On Saturday we are on the highly coveted flight to Baltimore (not even our original destination) through San Francisco. Ouch. But we'll make it back to my family in time for Christmas Eve...and may the rest of our travels be about a million times easier. Supposedly we got 33 inches of snow here in Boulder. I'm not so sure I believe that number but it's definitely near or above 2 feet. Check out these photos:

Ah, Mrs. Holladay. This is what you do with your holiday - dig out of snow. Hope you made it to DC ok! I was thinking about you today and thought I would check your blog to see if you're still alive. Glad that you are! However, I realized that I did my dad a disservice by not sending him to you weekly. I'm sure he was checking all these sites frequently and how nice to have them all linked from one site! :) You know, he is in the championship game in like 3 of the 4 leagues he played in. I think he owes it all to LT. Hope you have a happy new year, friend!

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
