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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
