Dak Prescott Defies CTE With Latest End Zone Dance

Dak Prescott End Zone Dance

In the latest incident of showmanship gone awry, Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys does a headspin to celebrate being alive. Challenging the dreaded CTE head on, Prescott damned gravity headfirst to the bewilderment of three Arizona Cardinals’ players who could only watch. We can neither confirm nor deny that Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five were playing in his helmet speaker at the time.

Solved: The Reason The New Orleans Saints Defense Has Been Awful for The Last Several Years

New Orleans Saints Defense

Despite having a terrific offense, the New Orleans Saints have been dreadful on defense for the last several years. After literally milliseconds of scientific study, analysts from MIT have come to the conclusion that it is because the players literally play upside-down, as demonstrated above by former linebacker Jonathan Vilma. It started about the time that Bountygate became a thing when then defensive coordinator Gregg Williams wanted to try something new to match up with current NFL offensive schemes. At some point, through multiple changes at defensive coordinators, the team maintained its upside-down defensive technique. “From our perspective, we have finished at the top of our division for most of the last few years” commented an unnamed defensive end for the team.

My First Year Playing Fantasy Baseball: Guess I’ve Done Alright

The above is the final regular season standings from my fantasy baseball league. I’ve been playing fantasy football since 1995, but have never until this year played fantasy baseball. I have a good reason… I’ve never liked baseball… at all… before this year. My workmate invited me to join his league, and he’s a huge baseball fan. He returned the favor and joined the fantasy football league I created for people at the company I work for. 

I got hooked in baseball as soon as I started watching my players. I watched a game every day for at least two months. Football is still king, but baseball has been upgraded to ‘better than OK’ in my book. Below I will post my roster. I am currently in the semifinals and hoping to make it onto the championship game next week. Finishing first by a mile in the regular season does not guarantee postseason success. Stay tuned!

Hurricane Irma – Surf’s Up!

Scored a day off work today compliments of Hurricane Irma. It is still a day or so away from impacting south Florida but my county was given a mandatory evacuation in the zone where my job sits, so a nice paid day off chilling with the family. Currently listening to the band Toxodeth on the iPod. I was lucky to reap the benefits of having Kansas City Chiefs’ rookie running back Kareem Hunt on my fantasy team this week. He netted me 76 points in my performance bonus boosted scoring system. What is Irma’s impact going to be for the Tampa Bay area? I’ll have to wait and see… A nice heavy breeze with some good rain at very least. Surf’s up, world!
