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
