Friday, October 17th, 2008

Afternoon, all. Okay, okay, so it's not the crack of noon, it's more like one, but at least I'm up. Can't believe I have to wait seven hours before IU plays tonight. All the early games are still close, and Georgia Tech just fumbled, so things aren't looking good so far. ...

Tony Romo or…Aaron Rodgers?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Picture this, if you will: it's late August, and, like many of you, I'm sweating out my fantasy draft. I picked 12th in the first round, so it's not like I was getting one of the top guys (I ended up with Clinton Portis), but I was cautiously optimistic. When ...
