Crabtree and Evelyn


So there I am settling in to last Thursday night's Green Bay vs Chicago match up sharing mind-numbing comments on Facebook chat with Unfinished Person (his, not mine). I have the advantage over UP. I have satellite TV so I actually get to see NFL games live. UP has to prime his herd of hamsters to get that little wheel going so he can actually see replays on his computer. Thank God for replays, because we both almost missed this:




Uh-huh. Did you see that? You should have. It ran twice.

Green Bay lined up for a 3 pointer but punter Tim Masthay passed to tight end Tom Crabtree for a 27-yard touchdown.

"Tom who?" Unfinished and I asked each other. I checked Wikipedia. Crabtree used to play for the Packers practice squad. Practice squad for frak sake, before he made the line up as third string TE.

Wikipedia also highlights that he is:

Married June 28, 2009 to Chelsea Crabtree. Has a son Bryce Thomas Crabtree born October 14, 2010 and is expecting his second child, a baby girl. Tom Crabtree also has two dogs: Molly a Boston Terrier and Charlie a Pug.

No wonder they gave him the ball. No one on the other team knows who the hell he is!

And where was NFL MVP QB Aaron Rodgers in all this? Well, my Nancy quarterback - or should I say Evelyn - was over on the sidelines resting up after his all out effort to earn 12 fantasy points. Hell, my back up QB Ben Roethlisberger earned 21 points this week.

That wasn't all. I chose Chicago RB Michael Bush who earned 5 points to play this week. On my bench sat Miami RB Reggie Bush who would have given me 38 points. Yeah, I guess a Bush on the bench is worth almost 9 on the field.

To say nothing of how many Evelyns. Way to play Fantasy Football Evelyn.

Hey Dufus! I scraped together a respectable 107 last Sunday/Monday, thanks in part to my edgy choice of Andrew Luck as QB. Oh, and I played Reggie Bush! HA! They thought I was mad! This week's dilemma? Raiders' Heywood-Bey or 49ers' Crabtree? Decisions, decisions. Hope Matt Stafford gets his shit together this week and starts hitting on my number 1 choice Johnson! Woo hoo!

It's such a crap shoot from week to week. I've gotta get my act together this week.

Um, Meleah, I think you have to cover your eyes not plug your ears in order not to read this.


Do you think I'm taking this football thing too seriously?

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
