Lots of Guys (Mostly QBs) Can’t See the Big Picture

I’ve always been a preparer. If I can stay a couple steps ahead of trends and opponents in life, my chance of success increases. I’ve practiced it in my personal life, my professional life and absolutely in my fantasy football life.

A great example of this happened some time ago at work. Continue reading “Lots of Guys (Mostly QBs) Can’t See the Big Picture”

Grading the Draft: Britt’s Snap Judgments

Its the morning after the first round of the draft, I honestly fell asleep after the 12th pick partly because I’m an old man and partly because the guys I was curious about had largely gone. So having done ZERO research on what others are saying and no real research on it, I’m just gonna give you my off the cuff first impressions of the first ten picks. Remember, no research, no fact finding, this is gut check time:

The UConn Women Lost: And I’m Happy They Did.

I wanted to wait a day or two before writing about this. I’m a proud UConn Alumni. I was on campus in 1995 when the women won their first national championship. I can brag to having met several members of the UConn athletic community. I even have a funny story about the men’s team from 1997 that I tell at parties. But I am happy the women lost to Notre Dame the other night and that by itself is a controversial statement.  Continue reading “The UConn Women Lost: And I’m Happy They Did.”

Beer Review: Sam Adams New England IPA

Unless I was eating something, I could not even imagine finishing an Continue reading “Beer Review: Sam Adams New England IPA”

The Fig Never Sleeps…

Back in 1989, a chubby little teenager was hanging out in Caldor (might have been Bradlees, don’t hold me to it) checking out the new music and stumbled across an album from an artist named Biz Markie called “The Biz Never Sleeps”. He took a good long look, not knowing the single “Just a Friend” would become burned into his memory a short time later. He walked away thinking to himself, ‘Everyone sleeps, who the Hell is so busy that they don’t sleep’. Now, if I had a time machine, it would appear in front of that kid and I would step out and slap that kid across the face and scream, “Buy BitCoin!” before getting back into the time machine and returning to the present. This offseason has come so fast and so furious, that sleep has been a luxury. Of course the kid in the story was Continue reading “The Fig Never Sleeps…”
