It’s not often these days one comes across a candidate they know will live up to the hype. A candidate that will deliver his or her promises. A candidate that will work hard for the people of the United States of America. Just doesn’t happen that often. Well, I’ve found such a candidate and I believe in him so much, I’m going to turn this into a political blog for just a few short paragraphs.
I give you: LaDainian Tomlinson. He’s a long-legged mack-daddy. No homo.
The man delivers. He’s got 10,650 career rushing yards and 129 total touchdowns. He even ran for 1,400 yards last season in what many considered a down year until the end. What, exactly, is he campaigning for, you ask? To be the first pick in your fantasy draft, of course.
We’ve all got fantasy drafts coming up soon. Mine is August 24 and I’m already prepping. But one thing is for sure. If I get the number one pick, I’m taking, “voting for,” if you will, LaDainian Tomlinson, and anyone who doesn’t is simply asking for fantasy trouble this year.
Don’t over-think your pick, people. This year’s fantasy draft is one of those drafts that has an obvious first pick and everyone else is a question mark. Don’t be that team that tries to make an overly-smart pick and ends up screwing up the team for years to come. Espeically in keeper leagues like the one The Baker is running. I’ve been charged with building the team for InterSpecies Erotica, and I’m going to do my best. Tomlinson will be the centerpiece of the Chargers’ offense against the second-easiest schedule in the NFL this season. The Bolts could, nay, will (possibly) dominate the league this year.
Sure, we’re still stuck with Norv and some injuries, but they’re still better than the Padres this season. And you can still consider this our first of many Chargers-homer posts of the year. LT in ’08.
