The BFFL draft is complete and the trash talk is already flowing. Once the season begins, I will do a weekly recap of the action. The participants are:

Waffles
23skidoo
Drewspop
Raveen
Surflexus
Thromdog
Hoyazo
Mookie
Presidentdavelee
MiamiDon
And the only non-blogger, Raveens girlfriend.

After looking at each team, I would seed the league as follows.

1) Drewspop - Larry Johnson is a straight up stud, add Marvin Harrison and D. McNabb and Chris has perhaps the best offense in the league.

2) Hoyazo - Another solid draft. Kurt Warner has more weapons available to him than any other QB. If he stays healthy he will be the steal of the draft.

3) The Non-Blogger - S. Alexander, T. Holt and J. Delhomme anchor a very solid offense.

4) Mowenumdown - R. Wayne, R. Droughns and M. Brunell are solid. Unknown rookie, M Bell can put this team over the top.

5) Raven - T. Brady and R. Johnson will anchor this team. Much of the success will lie in how many carries that McAllister loses to Bush.

6) Presdavelee - This team is the hardest to handicap, they could very well win it all. The only reason that I rank them this low is both backs, D. Foster and J. Lewis, are huge injury risk. And everyone knows you cant win without 2 stud RBs.

7) Waffles - I love D. Davis and C. Williams, if M. Bulger and P. Burress can post big numbers this could be the team to beat.

8) Surflexus - Two slight injury concerns with C. Palmer and C. Portis. If they stey healthy this team will be a contender.

9) MiamiDon - This is one team that I could have missed completely on. L. Jordan should get more carries and McGahee is primed for a huge year.

10) Thromdog - Solid receiving crew but RBs are suspect.

11) 23skidoo - Big concern is at RB, T.Bell has lost his starters role to M.Bell.

12) Mookie - Can T. Barber have another career year? Will B. Westbrook get 20+ carries per game? Can E. Manning improve on his big year last year? To many questions.

These reviews are for entertainment purposes only.

Where's Mow ?

My father has been in the hospital this week. He lives in Dalton Ga, which is about 2 hours from my home. I have spent most of the week up there with him. He was released yesterday and is back home and feeling much better.

No Luck in The Million ...

I went out fairly early when my AK was beaten by pocket Qs. In true Poker Stars fashion a K comes on the flop, the turn was a blank, then a Q comes on the river.

That's poker!

Great Weekend ...

I was off Friday so I took advantage of this to play in a golf tournament that my club holds every Friday. I shot an 80 which is one of my best rounds this year, but the 3 birdies and 1 eagle were the highlight of my round. My score was also good enough to win so I pocketed $125 bucks.

Later that evening, I decided to play in a Million qualifier on Stars. I proceeded to win a seat in the Million.

Saturday, the wife and I had blocked off the evening to go out with Surflexus and Miss Surf. For some reason Surf had to cancel so the wife and I took advantage of a Saturday night without the grand daughter and went to dinner and a movie.

We saw Talladega Nights, and if you like Will Farrell, you will love this movie. Being a Southerner, I got a kick out of the redneck comedy. The part where he thinks he's on fire is hilarious. Don't expect much of a plot, but if you want to have a good laugh this is a must see.

When we got home, I logged on to see what was happening on Stars. I found my boy 23skidoo dominating a Million qualifier so I railed him until he had a seat locked up. So he will join me in an attempt to take a share of the big money today.

Today, I decided to try another qualifier to the Million, and I won yet another seat. I already put in a request to sell it so I can have a little more cash in my account.

I hope to cap off this weekend with a win in the Million tonight on Stars.

Step 1 To A Big Payday ...

I decided to play in the 10+1 rebuy qualifier to the million on Stars. By the skin of my teeth I made it!

22 people advanced and on the last hand I was all in, in the BB. I needed to win the hand or I bubbled. I had the powerful hand of K3 os, as I held my breath a K comes and it held up. I wound up kicking in 50 bucks but I earned a $200 + 15 entry.

I will be playing in the MILLION this Sunday. Wish me luck!!!!

Busy As I Can Be ...

I have missed the last three blogger events, and I must say that I really miss them. My work week was a rough one as I had to drive through 4 states and over 1200 miles in 2 days. So needless to say, I have been too tired to play. However, work is slowing down so I should be able to make it next week.
