Wow. I simply cannot believe what just happened - Mike Shanahan was just fired as the Broncos head coach and director of football operations.

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 .
