Those clutch moments...

Well sometimes things really don't go as planned. Our car broke down yesterday as we were cruising along highway 81 in Virginia heading from Knoxville back up to DC on the next leg of our travels. Small disaster. We were towed off the interstate exit ramp and found a mechanic who can replace the clutch (we're hoping that's all that's wrong with it) by lunch today. So after my mind kept going cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching as I thought of how our plan to save money was actually backfiring on us, we found a crappy motel and holed up there, drinking beer and watching MNF. Could be worse, right? But right now I should be heading back home to NYC but instead we are sitting in a motel room in a small town in SW Virginia, trying to see how long we can milk a late check-out before we have to take refuge in a nearby Waffle House. Sigh.

So I had big plans for this post to unveil the winner of the 96-team monster FFLibrarian League, but I think I'm going to save that for later this week when I have a bit more time to digest it all. Same goes for my push on the FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge league, but either click that link or send me an e-mail if you'd like to participate (password: librarian).

Onto today's links...

It is happen with every one and every place and possible to happens with any human being but it dosn't mean we go down and keep silent, our aim should be defeat it and proceed further.

Sorry to hear about your car troubles but what can you do; shit happens.

Sounds like you made the best of a crappy situation.

Thanks for the great website; it definitely helped me get perspective on my FF decisions and I did well in all my leagues (I won two leagues, playoffs in 6 of 7). It will be in my toolkit for next year. I'd like to tell others about it but I don't like telling my competitors my info. Hehe. It's ironic because the website is on the internet. Anyhow. Happy New Year.

So sorry to hear about your trouble. I'm in Bristol, VA, and would have hooked you and Mr. Fflibrarian up with a good mechanic and bought you guys supper to thank you for all you do for all of us. Happy New Year

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
