Bouquet Pass

Bouquet Pass

This is a fantastic little play. The defense wasn’t fooled, but still, fantastic. It reminds me of the movie Maverick, “Aren’t you going to look at your card?” Balls. Turn on the tube, it’s probably on TNT right now.

If Jodie Foster is or was a lesbian she sure had me fooled. Bravo lady, bravo.

Fear and Loathing in Jacksonville (Ponte Vedra)

Fear and Loathing in Jacksonville (Ponte Vedra)

“I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feeling for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright … or maybe ‘stupid’ is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don’t bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I ...

Trent Richardson is Doomed

I had to copy this portion verbatim from the boys at Deadspin.  It was that funny to me.  The full article is here.  Sorry Jimmy.

2. Trent Richardson is doomed. You can hear the desperation when the Browns tell you that their new rookie running back will be back in time from surgery to start the season. They so urgently want you to believe that, but you and I know better. You and I know that the ...

The Chaches 2012 Philadelphia Eagles Preview

This is the second installment of the Chaches training camp tour.  I stopped by the Philadelphia Eagles camp on August 5th, the day that Andy Reid’s son passed away.  Andy’s coaching staff kept the team focused at a time when a lack of focus was warranted.   The camp was held at the Goodman Campus of Lehigh University.  I watched most of the practice until I barfed in a garbage can due to the heat.  I then took my daughter to ...

The Chaches 2012 Jets Preview

I stopped by the Jets Green and White Game in scenic Cortland, New York.  The SUNY Cortland campus that hosted the event is beautiful and the school did a great job coordinating the event.  This is the first stop in the Chaches tour of training camps in the Northeast.  Reports from the Eagles camp at Lehigh University and the Giants camp at SUNY Albany.  I will conclude my tour with a report from the Fantasy Football Convention in Atlantic City.

10 Rules on How to Lose Your Fantasy League

 

Welcome.  If you are reading this, congratulations, you can read.  No really, you are probably approaching fantasy football the way that I do…the wrong way.

Or you are just into reading about the sad thoughts of a great loser.  Seriously, I had the famous “0 for ’07” season, where I didn’t win a fantasy game the entire season.  Not too many of you can say that, can ...

Backups For Your Fantasy Radar

Backups For Your Fantasy Radar

Here are a few guys that are on the bottom of their team’s depth chart, but still have some promise.  They may stay parked on a taxi squad, or get signed as free agents at the auction, or sit and wait for a mid-year waiver wire bidding war, but they are on the radar of every conscientious FFKL owner.  Of course, if your league isn’t set up as wonderfully complex as FFKL, this list may only be a week four ...

Young Guns:  Breaking Down the New Browns Offense

The Cleveland Browns have not exactly been a great source of fantasy talent in recent years but at FFKL we like to take the long view.  The Browns had a tremendous 2012 draft (and supplemental draft) and appear to finally have the pieces in place to become a dynamic offense.  Will it happen this year?  Probably not, but the seeds have been sown.

Let’s take a look at the projected starting line-up and break it down by position group:

Offensive Line

LT:  Joe ...

Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom

I figure if Hall can post Pepsi commercials I can post a movie recommendation. It’s no secret to those of you who know me that I’m a fan of Director Wes Anderson. For the uninitiated, his films include The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore, The Darjeeling Limited, and The Fantastic Mr. Fox. His new one, Moonrise Kingdom, is whatever superlative you’d like to apply.

Bruce Willis, Ed Norton, Frances McDormand, Harvey Keitel, and of course ...
