Hittin' the lanes

I'm going bowling tonight. Haven't bowled in quite some time but I'm being called up to replace a friend in my husband's bowling league who cut her hand and is incapable of bowling for several weeks. (Note: I still chuckle when I say "my husband's bowling league" - that's hilarious. Feel free to chuckle, too.) So typically when I go bowling I find that I have such tiny hands that I can basically only use the small child-sized/weighted bowling balls - which is somewhat embarrassing (particularly around people who are hardcore enough about bowling that they have joined a weekly league) and at that point, why not just go duckpin bowling as I did for my 9th birthday party? In fact now that I think about it, I might have peaked at bowling when I was 9. Huh. So you can see I'm a real aficionado here. I'm hoping to only experience a moderate degree of humiliation tonight but most of all I'm hoping the new iPhone (which is a true technological marvel) will have service in the bowling alley so I can stay hip to FF news.

So onto fantasy football links for the day:

What is it with this bias against bowlers? They have feelings too you know! :)
Ha ha, thanks for keeping me in check, Goat. My husband doesn't exactly fit my bowling league stereotype (I'll need to work on that bias...) since he can more likely than not be found participating in a sport in the outdoors...but the guy loves to bowl. Perhaps when I hit up the lanes tonight I'll have my stereotypes totally smashed (along with my pins, too?!) - that would be good for me, huh? :)

Thanks for yet another mention. You do wonders for our sitemeter stats!

Thanks also for not mentioning how you took our team to the woodshed this weekend in the Bloggers league. Yikes.

Oh, did we forget to tell you about the monitoring device we installed in your brain? How rude of us.

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
