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!
