Take me to another land

It's official, friends, I'm moving to Knoxville, Tennessee. In addition to having a kickass department at UT for my husband to teach in, Knoxville is also my husband's hometown, meaning it's chock full of family members. What more could I want than to surround our son with loving family members? Plus, don't get me started on the incredible cost of living there as compared to NYC. While there are plenty of things that I'll miss about New York and just the urban lifestyle in general, I knew we were never here for the long haul and I'm looking forward to this next chapter. I'm taking suggestions for awesome things to do in Knoxville...

Lots of content for you today, much of it focusing on the NFL Draft. Before I jump into football though, I'd love to know if any of you would like a baseball-focused post. While I don't play fantasy baseball, I can certainly get up one post of helpful resources (like Baseball Monster, one of my husband's favorites) - so leave a comment or send me an e-mail if you're interested. By the way, The Hazean just rolled out his first fantasy baseball articles, so scope out the Crowding the Plate series.

Greetings from a reader in Knoxville!

Weird. I moved from NYC to Knoxville when I was four years old. It worked out for me. Good luck!

I stopped by here, to see if you were saying anything about fantasy baseball. I guess that's not your bag.

Even though by virtue of marrying of Knoxville Knative you have had a head start on learning our mountain ways, consider the following:

1. Learn the words to Rocky Top. Practice the WHOOOOOOOO.

2. Get some Big Orange tinted contact lenses until you can naturally see EVERYTHING through the UT perspective.

3. Understand that Neyland (nee'-lund) Stadium is the largest outdoor church in the SEC.

4. Work on developing a real hatred for Alabama.

5. Buy a Peyton Manning doll to go into the Peyton Manning Shrine that is to be prominently displayed in your living room. (hey, I have an Archie Manning Shrine in my home...Hotty Toddy, Gosh A'mighty, who in the Hell are we? Flim flam, Bim bam, Ole Miss, by Damn!)

6. If you ever come through the Tri-Cities area or if you want tickets to get into the largest outdoor church in TN (Bristol Motor Speedway), give me a shout.

Seriously, best of luck and be safe. This is a wonderful area in which to live.

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
