First unveiling of Super Bowl weekend photos...

Wow it has been a whirlwind week going from the amazing trip to the Super Bowl (thanks again Buffalo Wild Wings) to a new job - feels like I've hardly had time to breathe so my apologies for my slow blogging this week.

First up, I'm scattering some Super Bowl weekend pictures throughout my posts for the week to keep you entertained. We took over 200 photos so as you can imagine, I'm trying to just show you all a smattering of the best and most representative of the trip.

Up first, Archie Manning getting ready to do an interview on Radio Row at the media center, followed by The Who being interviewed before their acoustic set for the media on Thursday afternoon.

Interspersed between SB44 weekend photos though there will be links. The 2010 season is now squarely in front of us and while it's a long, long, sad way off until Week 1, there are actually plenty of sites still cranking out offseason analysis.

So let's get right to the first link of the night:

Let's start things off with Football Outsiders since they're always a great launching point for football analysis. Their Super Bowl XLIV Quick Reads provides some solid game insight and some in-depth number crunching for top players in SB44.

That next photo there is of Mark Schlereth, me, and Trey Wingo as Wingo hands me the awesome Super Bowl tickets. And I'm only 5'3" or so, which seems painfully obvious in this photo...
Next up, FantasyFootball Xtreme takes a nice look at some sleeper running back picks that you might want to grab for next season - 2010 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Running Backs.
I can practically hear Greg Olsen dynasty owners crying their eyes out over the arrival of Mike Martz in Chicago - look at what happened to Vernon Davis when Martz was in town...take a look at Rotoworld's Martz confirms it: Olsen is screwed.

Here's a photo of me at Buffalo Wild Wings doing a video segment for their internal WingTV station. I only had to do about 10-20 seconds of video but it was still pretty exciting to be in the bright lights. has their 2010 rankings by position but they also include current auction values.

Side note: I met's Dave Richard at the media center in Ft. Lauderdale and was impressed with what a genuinely nice guy he seemed to be in such a brief meeting - I always like hearing those details on what folks are really like so thought I'd spread them on to FFLibrarian readers, too.

And on we roll with photos...

Next I have a series of photos with both famous football faces and general celebs at the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl at South Beach on Saturday afternoon  - those of you who are into Gossip Girl and/or Twilight (I know, not too many of you, right?) might recognize a face or two here amidst the Eli Manning, Eddie George and Mark Sanchez shots.

Finally, I have two parting photos for you today - a shot of the stadium from our pre-game party at PrimeSport's NFL Alumni party. Then a photo of my husband and me outside the stadium getting psyched to go in for the big game. I'll be back later this week with photos from the game itself.

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

Start/Sit Week 4 and a smattering of rankings

It's been awhile, my fantasy football friends. I have lofty intentions of getting several posts up here each week, but life is busy and I will do my best. So in the intervening 6 years since I've posted regularly on here, our family added another child (now there are 3!), moved back to Boulder for a sabbatical year and then returned to Knoxville, and we have basically been chugging along like many of the rest of you. My two boys (who turn 12 and 9 soon) are in a fantasy football league for the first time this year with their buddies, which ostensibly is the just the dads (and mom!) playing one another of course. But my oldest is taking it super seriously and what kind of Fantasy Football Librarian would I be if I didn't step up my game for him? So I'm back - and am interested in the fantasy landscape - lots of the same awesome sites out there, but many new ones as well. I'll try to incorporate a mix. Please be sure to let me know if my 2006 ways aren't working i
