Beer + FF = hot times

If I love beer, I can only imagine that the vast majority of you all love beer as well (however in an interesting side note, according to research conducted by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association in 2007, 21.4% of fantasy football players don't drink beer). So when I received an e-mail this morning about a Redhook Brewery sweepstakes, I immediately started paying attention. Enter to win the Redhook Fantasy Football Trash Bash and you might be taking home a Redhook Toolbox Fridge and other prizes. My husband has been angling to spend our tax rebate check on a mini kegerator...now while I'm all for beer, there are probably about 50 other things that we could do with that money first. So if I could win the Redhook fridge, I'd be a step closer to making his beer dreams come true.

Onto our next link of the day - what goes better with beer and football than kids? Hmm. Right. Well this next link might be of interest to those of you with little ones who would like to get them involved in fantasy sports - FamilyFantasySports.com. As the founder of the site notes, "sports have always been something that parents and their kids could share and use to build stronger, healthier relationships" so why not get in on some free family-style fun for the fantasy season? Since my only children at this point in time have four legs and fur, I won't unfortunately won't be signing up, but I'd certainly like to hear about it if any of you do since one day I'm sure to force my future children into it (a recipe for success, right?).

A few blog posts ago I mentioned that I'll be starting up a weekly column on the Bruno Boys, which will be called A Librarian's Touch. Originally I had hoped to get that up today but due to my inability to schedule my time with any sort of skills whatsoever, I am falling behind. I do hope to have it up over the next 24 hours and will be posting a link to the column from here when it's up. In the meantime, entertain yourself with results from the four-round mock draft that the Bruno Boys and I are both participating in - here's a link to the results from the second round.

All for now - I've gotta go work on that column!

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
