Post-Super Bowl unwinding

Wow, what an experience. Go out and get yourselves some wings at Buffalo Wild Wings - they truly treated us like royalty this weekend and the game did not disappoint. While my husband and I were clutching our faces in dismay as the interception was returned for a touchdown, and everyone surrounding us seemed to be a Saints fan (50-year-old fan in front of us literally jumped up onto the seat in front of him and a woman nearby was crying she was so happy), it was still an event that I will never forget despite the unwanted outcome. And really, I can't be all that sad that the Saints won, just bummed that the Colts didn't if that makes sense.

Catch up on the highlights from yesterday including our stop by the NFL Alum pre-party sponsored by PrimeSport and of course the game itself. I have SO many photos to post but here's one of me in our amazing seats during pre-game.

Also just a note that I'll be starting a new job bright and early tomorrow morning so my schedule this week might be a little hectic as I figure out the best time to blog. But I'll be around blogging away in the offseason, no worries! Will be back with more soon...

Couldn't agree more Dave.

The best part of following you during all this, I think, is that you were simply competing for bragging rights...and then once winning the trip became real, it was such a huge (and welcome!) surprise to you.

Sounds like that wonderful innocence come next year will be long gone, and the pressure will be on you to repeat! Although Miami is sure more fun than Big D!!

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
