Feeling merry with Week 13 prep

Tonight I'm headed to Rockefeller Center to watch the big tree lighting extravaganza. I can't seem to get enough of the cheesy holiday NYC traditions. I walked past a row of Christmas trees for sale yesterday and had an overwhelming desire to buy one right then and there...until I had an image in my head of how fun it was to lug our A/C unit into our apartment. And by fun I mean horrible. I imagine a tree is an equally awkward and hefty item to cart around the streets of Brooklyn so I might bow out of the tree option this year.

So it's Wednesday, we've got football on tomorrow night and there's still plenty of time to take in all of the waiver, start/sit, and rankings advice out there. Let's get to it...

Just a reminder to get commenting on the Buffalo Wild Wings website if you'd like a chance to win a BWW $50 gift card. Also, I have another giveaway from BWW to share with you all, my fine readers, but I'm struggling with a good contest. Any thoughts?

Re: contest ideas...not sure of your timing. Did you want results prior to end of regular season?

If so - Week 15 has a juicy CIN/SD about predicting results of that game specifically?

If not - predict the wildcard teams or predict week 17 top scoring QB, RB, WR and TE who are NOT regular starters.

I recommend a 4' tall fake tree (Target usually has some decent ones) and a pine-scented candle - almost as good as the real thing once it's decorated and you can reuse it every year (or at least as long as you're in the apartment).

OR how about this - better connected to BWW site (which they might like, after all):

We all predict your final Week 15 lineup for your BWW team. From those who correctly predict who you wind up starting top to bottom, you'll randomly pull the winner.

I know it's not the same, but Dan is onto something. Get a fake tree and a candle. Great advice Dan.

Leave the fakes alone - buy a couple of boughs/sprigs of real greens from the street vendors and add some pine cones. The fresh scents alone will give you a solid tree alternative. And don't forget the mistletoe!
