To The Victor Go The Spoils

Okay, I realize I'm taking a chance here running a post about fantasy football. Whenever I do comments for some reason simply plummet. Be thankful it isn't a post of a three day Facebook thread. Those get next to no comments. But on the football thing I think people just go "Oh, no, dufus is rambling on about fantasy football again" and they cover their ears and go "la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la." But, folks, I'm doing so well these days I just had to share. I know it's not about zombies, cute dogs or cryptologists - items that have readers flock to other blogs to leave effusive comments, but, hey, give a guy a break. Look at this as dufus occupies blog street. For today, guys, hold your nose and pass the football.


Yeah, that's me. They don't call me Mr. Tibbs. They call me noname "victor" dufus. In week 7 your humble fantasy football fanatic squeaked by Future Ex-Cons 104-90. It's not the biggest margin for a win. But it's a win nonetheless.

nonames' QB, Mr. Rodgers, had another wonderful day in the neighbourhood, racking up 35 fantasy points. Why was the win so narrow? Seems FE-C had a running back named Adrian Peterson who garnered 28 points. That was a close one, Troi. Good effort, guy.

With our win nonames moves into 3rd spot in the HBFFL. That's right. This fantasy noname neophyte has slipped into 3rd place folks, with a record of 5-2-0.

Well, last week, when I was in 4th spot, I was telling Bourbon BlastersPredator Press andPurple Drank to start looking over their shoulders. Guys? One down. Two to go. Bourbon Blasters lost to my Penn State pal Unfinished Person. Thanks, UP.

So much for the "victor" part. Now let me tell you how week 8 may well be spoiled.

It'll be a miracle if I move out of 3rd spot in week 8, unless it's down, because Mr. Rodgers, a Running Back, my 2 Kickers and my Defence are all on byes.

Damn, fame can be fleeting. Sometimes fantasy football sucks. 

Bourbon Blasters goes down for the count at the hands of the nonames.

Wow! I love this post! And I love those pictures. I didn't understand what you wrote but I loved it nonetheless. It was moving, uplifting, and sexy as hell. Or something else I really can't describe.

* Yaaawn *

Kidding.

104-90?? Really? Sounds more like a final score in a basketball game not a football game. Then again, I know nothing about "Fantasy Football" or any other fantasy stuff - oh, wait ... never mind.

Anyway, Go nonames!!! Good luck in week 8.

P.S. When do I get my finger?

I knew you'd love it. It was the reference to cute dogs that probably did it.
nonamedufus said…
I'm giving it to you now.
nonamedufus said…
Okay, okay I found one of those foam fingers you wanted...
Linda Medrano said…
Naw, it was just how you used all them pretty words so nice.

Shucks, Linda, blow in my ear and I'll follow you anywhere. My wife likes to say she's a football widow. When she says that I tell her what Erma Bombeck once said: "Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare. They are consumed in 12 minutes. Half-times take 12 minutes. This is not a coincidence."
00dozo said…
Why, thank you. Thank you very much.

Actually, I was gonna wager on how many individual commenters you would have on this post. Excluding Linda (now that's a surprise - a welcome one, I'm sure), but including myself, I figured about four.

Well so far there's 3. And that's counting myself. Yet if you Linda and I keep up our exchanges it raises the comment count!

Truthfully, Alex and I both like football. We watch the 49ers and the Raiders. The 49ers were my team back when Joe Montana and Steve Young made it really exciting. This year is sort of shaping up too!
nonamedufus said…
Ah, the good old days of the 49ers.

Muhammed Ali played football? Congratulations Dufus! But when are you going to join a hockey pool like a real Canadian?

Inside joke...that top picture really is of guy named Victor.

I don't follow hockey, don't know enough about it to get into a fantasy league. Wait a minute. That's how I got into fantasy football.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
