iPhone devotion and FF linkage

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 tried not to laugh, but failed. Hope you're okay.

Now that we know you're an iPhone nerd, you need to give us reviews of FF iPhone apps. I'm begging for Yahoo to give us a StatTracker app, but it's currently Flash-based, so I'm not sure that's going to happen.

hey, you slammed the lions. Oh wait, they deserve it.
Brilliant, Matthew Saunders, I love it. I've got a couple of football apps but I'll do some research and see what kind of feedback I can give. I do remember using CBS on my iPhone last season and linking th clean display...I guess the real reviews might have to wait until the start of the season.

And feel free to laugh. It was rather humorous in retrospect.

And anon, I feel I can slam the Lions now that the Broncos are descending into "laughing stock of the NFL" status...

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J.

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
