Last weekend while I was home in Virginia, I was all girly-ed up, ready to attend a baby shower when I apparently lost focus of how to walk down stairs, you know, the simple task of putting one foot in front of the other...and I fell down our cement front steps. I think I did a few pirouettes, hit my head on the hand railing, and finally landed in the bushes with my feet pointed towards the sidewalk. I have no clue how this happened but distinctly remember having the time to tell myself, "this can't possibly be happening right now; but is the iPhone okay?" as I was careening towards the ground. I pulled myself up and hobbled to the front door covered in leaves - my mom reverted into supermom mode as she opened the door to find me holding my head with one hand and keeping my skirt away from my two bloodied legs with the other hand. It wasn't pretty. But what I found most impressive of all is that my mind had time to worry about my iPhone before my own limbs. I think this just goes to show how addicted I've become to this tiny machine. For better or for worse. And I am fine now, by the way, just a bit of a limp and an impressive set of scars developing...
So this morning while I was riding the bus and catching up on football news on my beloved iPhone, I noticed that Gregg Rosenthal is everywhere. In case you can't get enough Gregg from NBC Sports and Rotoworld, they've now merged with ProFootballTalk - check out his latest article on why Reggie Bush is now "Running Back 1A".

I like the list - some names I already know, but definitely a bunch of guys I don't know very much about yet.
- KFFL's Draft Guide is here with lots of great material - all sorts of rankings, a running back handcuff chart, lists of sleepers and busts, and for those who are new to fantasy football: Fantasy Football University.

- Finally, I've added a new design to the FFLibrarian store - I wish I was the clever mind behind this one, but Jeremy K., an FFLibrarian reader, suggested it. Detroit Lions fans, this one is for you.
