Fantasy Football

This is my first year participating in a Fantasy Football League. A year ago, I didn't know who Peyton Manning was. Today, Peyton Manning and my other draft picks have me tethered to the flat screen pulling my hair out over every yard. Tonight I am in the play offs. It's my team, the Two Two Sevens, versus Dippin' Dot Dan. I have a 9 and 5 record, the highest total points in the league, and a crew of superstars in addition to Manning: Reggie Wayne, Willie Parker, Greg Jennings, Braylon Edwards, Edgerin James. I have the San Diego Chargers defense. The current score is 100 to 100, but he has one more player in Monday Night Football: Minnesota's RB Adrian Peterson. It's looking grim. Well, there's always next year!

Lucky Break

I'm a Jayhawk. And, as I have discovered, I am a proud Jayhawk. Do I really need to admit to all the MU fans that Mizzou should have gotten a BCS bowl game instead of KU? I am celebrating a great KU Football season (despite what was a very depressing loss to MU) and KU's lucky break to go to the Orange Bowl. Hey, we all like getting a lucky break! Most people can appreciate a lucky break everyone now and then. We'll take it, and we'll enjoy it. Please don't try to ruin my fun with talk about what was deserved. Next time, it might be your school that gets better than it deserved.

Snow Dog

It was Lucy's first romp in the snow today! She was loving it. As much as Lucy loves to eat ice cubes, she likes eating the snow too! Check out her other pictures. We played in the snow a little bit, and now she's laying at my feet fast asleep. Exciting day for a 6 month-old puppy!
