Greetings, friends. Happy almost New Year's Eve and happy college bowl season. I can only assume you'll all be pulling for my Northwestern Wildcats when they play in some random bowl on Saturday. To be honest, I'm not particularly excited about their chances since their QB (who is basically 90% of their offense) was injured for the rest of the season back in November.
We survived our holiday travels and made it back to Brooklyn last night all in one piece. While we probably didn't endear ourselves to all of our fellow travelers thanks to some occasional meltdowns from our little dude, it certainly wasn't as bad as it could have been. And hey, we missed the chaos surrounding the major blizzard here in NYC while we were gone, so that's something to be grateful for!
A reminder that there's a FFLibrarian Playoff Challenge again this year - basically it's a fresh slate to prove your fantasy wisdom. I'm working on a prize for the winner this year so sign up and show what a stellar fantasy football player you are.
