I'm using a friend's mac to get this post up and it's the first time I've used a mac in about 9 years - it's awesome and the "once you go mac, you never go back" phrase is making sense. This laptop loan could end up being an unfortunate move for the ol' wallet down the line...
So I hope everyone is enjoying the tourney so far; may your brackets be demonstrating what great sports acumen you have. I have two different brackets going and I think I'm doing pretty well in both - I've never been known for my awesome March Madness skills; I often select teams using the all-powerful "well my sister's neighbor went to college there and my best friend's brother's wife went to college there" technique, also known as my mom's technique (oh yeah, my mom has a bracket - she rocks) so I'm sure it might prove to be a less than surefire selection process by next weekend.
Anyway, back to the subject at hand: football.
- For the latest speculation on the Lions' first pick (and the requisite commentary about how they should've gotten their paws on Cutler), take a look at ProFootball101's Who Should Detroit take at Number 1?
- As many dedicated readers here will know, I heart Tony Scheffler. Seriously, one of my favorite players so I was quite pleased to find Scheffler's 09 projections and commentary from multiple experts at Fantasy Football Trader but also a slew of other players like Kevin Smith, Joseph Addai and Matt Ryan.
- The talk of similarities between Cutler and Favre continues - take a look at the Fifth Down's Scientific Football: Should Jets Trade for Cutler? for reasons why Cutler might be a near mirror image to the 2008 Favre.
- Rotoworld's Evan Silva is going through top rookie prospects at each position - I think I've linked to the QBs and RBs already, but here's Draft '09: The Wide Receivers.
All for now, friends. Enjoy the tournament and for my husband and the rest of his Tennessee family, go Vols!
