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.

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.

Labor Day FF links

Happy long weekend! Here's hoping most of you are free to enjoy the 3-day weekend and the relaxation and fun that comes with it. I spent my Sunday participating in 3 fantasy football drafts scattered throughout the day and night, but I think I've finally wrapped up my drafts for the year. So like many of you I'm now turning my attention to the Week 1 games! But before we get to some player rankings and prep for Week 1, I want to make sure that all you experts out there are aware of the upcoming deadline for the annual accuracy contest that I run with the Fantasy Sports Trade Association. I compare preseason positional rankings from experts to the final outcome of the fantasy season to see which site had the most accurate preseason rankings, and this year's deadline is fast approaching: September 9th by kickoff. Check out the info on the FSTA site for more details and be sure to e-mail me your submissions. Now, onto Week 1! First up, let's get to some of this

2010 Week 2 consensus start/sit

Greetings and happy weekend. I've got this week's consensus start/sit for you which is a tally of all the start/sit votes that players received in the various start/sit articles that I linked to earlier in the week. So while these aren't my personal recommendations, I do think knowing what the consensus is could be of help when making lineup enjoy! Note: the players are listed in no particular order. QB Start: Michael Vick, Kyle Orton, Matt Ryan, Jason Campbell Sit: David Garrard, Alex Smith, Jay Cutler, Vince Young, Carson Palmer RB Start: LeSean McCoy, Darren McFadden, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jackson Sit: Tim Hightower, C.J. Spiller, Beanie Wells, Ronnie Brown WR Start: Santana Moss, Legedu Naanee, Malcolm Floyd, Mike Williams (TB), Dez Bryant Sit: Randy Moss, Michael Crabtree TE Start: Chris Cooley, Todd Heap, John Carlson, Jermichael Finley Sit: Jermaine Gresham, Owen Daniels, Tony Scheffler, Jeremy Shockey, Bo Scaife Kicker Start: La

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
