Name Twin and Week 10 prep

One of the really weird things that I discovered after moving to NYC? Sara Gore. Now those that know me are well aware that Gore is my maiden name, making me Sara Gore. Turns out I'm far from the only one. This is hardly a complete surprise since I grew up outside of DC playing soccer against Al Gore's daughter who happens to be my age and named Sarah. The sidelines would cheer for Sara(h) Gore thoroughly confusing all Sara(h) Gores on the field since how does the other team know my name and why are they cheering for me?? (note: when your name is Sara(h) and you're a child of the 80s, you get called by your full name since there are so many freaking Sara(h)s running around out there). So I was used to this existence of another Sara(h) Gore and even when we mistakenly received a wedding present for her, we clarified the situation, and I chuckled over still having this name twin. But things got creepy with the whole name twin thing upon moving to NYC since there's yet another Sara Gore who is a co-host of the tv show LX New York (and I believe she's been the host of NYC cab tv news?). It's just a little weird to be sitting in your living room, cranking out a fantasy football post, when bam you hear "I'm Sara Gore" or you look up and see your very own name on tv associated with someone else's face. It's just strange.

And I'm guessing this is how the Panthers and NYG Steve Smiths feel. I mean really, they've probably encountered countless other Steve Smiths (I know I have), but to have a famous person out there with your name (I'm using famous liberally here) - bizarre.

Speaking of names, there aren't a ton of new names on the waiver wire this week. But there's still lots of advice on which guys you might want on your radar or bench just in case they prove to be fantasy worthy. For the latest waiver thoughts, check out these links:

And yes, I've decided to completely avoid the depressing topic of my Broncos losing to the Steelers...

Thanks, as always, for the links!

Re: Sara(h), we just named our second adopted daughter (from Korea) Sarah.

Re: the Broncos, yeah, as a Steelers fan, I noticed that you sorta ignored the topic. :-)

It was a good game for PIT as they haven't really looked like a championship team for much of the year, especially with the running game. But they looked very good all around last night.

'Shard Mendenhall? I think someone got too excited watching MNF. For his ADP (mid-70's), Cedric Benson was the steal of the draft this year. How many fantasy 7th rounders end up vying for the rushing title in a given year? Not too many from my recollection.

Yeah -- I run into the same problem with other dudes named Antonio D'Arcangelis all the time. Sucks, but whatcha gonna do?

Randy - yea for another Sara(h) in the world! As for the Broncos/Steelers game, it was really the second half of the game that was most pitiful for my Broncos. All around the offense struggled big time, but it's like they just gave up in the second half. Or the Steelers just had their number...
