Figuring out the Broncos and other links

As you all can imagine, I was really interested in the outcome of the Bears v Broncos game last night. I wasn't necessarily pulling for a bad game for Cutler but I really wanted the Broncos to shine. There were a few moments when I thought the Broncos D had their act together (hey, it's all relative) but it was a downer of a game for us Broncos fans. Sigh. Keep an eye on Orton's finger.

In other less than awesome news, apparently the updated average ranking position spreadsheet I was working on this weekend has disappeared into a deep, dark hole within my laptop. It's gone, no amount of searching every nook and cranny of the computer has forced it up out of its hiding spot. The silver lining here is that as I gather new rankings today, they will be even more updated than the ones I pulled on Friday. I've got my fingers crossed that I'll have a new version ready by this afternoon and will let you all know when it's ready to go.

But today is a great day since it's closing day on our condo in Boulder - in just a few hours we will be proud sellers. While part of me would like to take a sweet vacation with some of the profits, I think we're really savers at heart who will just rebuild for our next down payment. But here's to real estate transactions today!

Onto today's links...

Hopefully I'll be back later today with a new average ranking position spreadsheet...

Jerious Norwood's knee injury didn't look bad at all, from what I saw from that game - Chargers vs Falcons in ATL.

Whereas Matt Cassel's knee injury looked much worst from the get go, even by just going what his reaction to the injury.

All in all, Norwood should be fine...looks to be very minor.

Even with a new coaching staff we FF'ers are still unable to figure out the Broncos!!

Tell me again, why did Coach J-McD put a Safety with a broken wrist onto the field, with a club cast again?

Isn't J-McD suppose to be trying to get INTs, Fumbles, and Passes Defensed from this Safeties? A bit hard with a one handed defender on the field, no?

Can't wait to see how the Broncos Defense does against the AFC North, NFC East teams this year, besides in the division rivals. At least their not the Lions on Run Defense this year in the pre-season so far....

I bet against the Broncos last night and it was free money. And yes I am pretty sure betting on preseason football means you have a gambling problem.

Funny how it is coming a reality that Broncos fans never really liked Cutler... only liked him as a man while he was on Broncos uniform. Now he is a scum to them.

Travel is expensive and one of the most costly components of taking a vacation can be airfare. That’s why so many people are interested in finding cheap airline tickets.

Here are some suggestions for getting the best possible deals on airfare:

First, be patient. The best deal won’t necessarily appear in front of you in a matter of minutes. You may be tempted to make one or two phone calls and to check one of the major websites and make a decision. However, you are more likely to secure the best possible bargain if you are patient and willing to scour a variety of possibilities in search of a deal. Finding cheap airline tickets requires dedication and time. Fortunately, you can amass savings that make it well worth the time invested.

Second, don’t count on the airlines. Many people wrongly assume they can get the best possible deal by contacting the airline directly. That’s appealing on its face. After all, we’ve all been taught that the best prices come when you can “cut out the middle man.” That logic is faulty when applied to airline tickets. Airlines dump countless tickets on consolidators at rates far lower than they quote customers. You can often find better deals by using a so-called “middle man” because the consolidator managed an amazing cut-rate deal.

Third, remember that not all websites are created equal. Just because you found one set of prices on Priceline doesn’t mean you’ll encounter the same deals at Orbitz. Although prices are often relatively consistent, you can occasionally find bargain variations by looking at all of the well-known sites. Considering the small amount of time it requires to “shop around,” there’s no reason to assume you won’t have better luck finding cheap airline tickets at another site.

Fourth, learn from the experts. People within the travel industry know a great deal about getting the best possible deals. Their very business relies upon securing tickets as inexpensively as possible. Some industry insiders maintain that you can save a fortune by using professional techniques and secrets. Guides like “Why Not Fly Free?” and other titles from those within the travel industry may help you find the best possible rates.

Finally, think ahead or be prepared to act impulsively. There are two great ways to secure bargain airfare. Those who plan ahead and book flights months in advance can usually get much better rates than those who wait until a week before their planned departure. If you aren’t big on advance planning, you can also hold out for a last second deal. If you’re a flexible traveler who’s more interested in finding a bargain getaway than going on a planned vacation, you might be able to get tickets on the cheap at the last minute.

Finding cheap airline tickets isn’t impossible. If you combine dedication and patience with a little knowledge, you can cut your travel costs significantly.
