Biggest Blowout

So here we are heading into Week 6 of the NFL and, more importantly, into the sixth week in the land of football make-believe with that motley crew of rejects who call themselves managers of teams in the Humor Bloggers Fantasy Football League.

It's been an interesting first five weeks. Let me recap. The nonames (clever name, eh?) are 3-2-0. Now don't let that mediocre score fool you. In five weeks the nonames have moved from 9th to 4th position, trailing Bourbon Blasters, Predator Press and Purple Drank all at 4-1-0.

But I'm confident the nonames will continue to move forward. After all slow and steady wins the race, football championships and sexual partners.

Anyway, the nonames have already kicked some serious butt in the stats department. They've won the largest margin of victory in a single week category. They're atop the most kicking points in a single week category. And they lead the best single week (474) and best season average (1748) in receiving yards. They also lead the least rushing yards category. but we're not gonna go there.

Now for the largest margin of victory the nonames received the "Biggest Blowout" award. I know. Sounds great, eh, especially considering this was Canada's Thanksgiving weekend. But, hey, I didn't win this award just this weekend. I won it last weekend too! And here's how I shared the news with my Facebook fans:

Two weeks in a row! And I did it without Correctol 50 Plus!

Win with the highest margin of victory

And not to put too fine a point on it but here's how I did it and who I did it to: 

In Week 4: nonames 151 - Bald Spots 85 ... a blowout of 66 points.

In Week 5: nonames 103 - Multiple Scorgasms 66 ... a blowout of 37 points.

So BB, PP and PD watch out. I'm coming for you. And I'm loading up on Corectol 50 Plus. So beware because our blowout could get messy.

I don't know what this means but it had the word "blowout" in it 
and I really liked the picture.

That Brazilian Blowout picture is not what I would have imagined a picture with the caption Brazilian Blowout to look like. And we'll leave it at that.

Congratulations on the award! Better a Blowout award then a Blowhard award, amiright?

I don't know what a Brazilian Blowout is. Maybe there was a sale on Brahma?

Blowhard award could be for the best smack talk. I have one of those too.

Fantasy Football can be weird like that.

Go nonames! So, when do we get the finger? (The sponge sports glove type, I mean.)

One of the young women I got my new dog Zoe from is from Brazil. She is quite lovely too. All I care about football is that finally Alex Smith seems to be connecting and the 49ers won two weeks in a row. The Raiders, (my other favorite team) also won last weekend and looked good except for all the penalties but hey, they are the Oakland Raiders so what are you gonna do.

There's a fantasy about football? I've never had one.

Well, I don't have any 49rs on my teams but I've got Oakland running back Michael Bush on one team with 35 points so far this season and kicker Sebastian Janikowski with 51 points on my other team.

The thing about fantasy football is you no longer cheer for teams but for individual players. It's a strange way to watch football.

HaHaHa. When I'm #1.

You know I bet a middle finger sponge sports glove would be a big seller. Fans could wear them when the "other" team has the ball. I'd like one to wear while I'm driving.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
