  1. Official Super Bowl commercial thread

    I really liked the careerbuilder trilogy. I thought there was some really clever and funny use of office supplies, and they were really well made overall.
  2. Jets/Patriots Game Thread

    Thanks Vet! I take it from your avatar you are a Jets fan. So - J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!
  3. Jets/Patriots Game Thread

    Can someone from NE answer a question for me and my son? What are those designs at the 50 yard line outside the numbers? Looks like a wrench, or a building? This is really bugging us that we cant make heads or tails of what it is. If some PATS fan can help us out here - we promise to root for the PATS the rest of the game, sending positive mojo from the Pacific NorthWest.
  4. What the Coolest Name of Any of Your Fantasy Teams?

    Monsters of the Midriff was a pretty good one in my league.
  5. Your Best Fantasy Cheater Stories...

    Before the internet, our commish would send us all the schedules for the year a few months before the season. He had a master schedule that he always used, and just swapped team one from last year for team one for this year etc. to make the current years schedule. Well one year I noticed that this was not the case, and wondered why he would go to the trouble of writing up a new schedule. Then I noticed (we had a keeper league) that he arranged it so that his team played each team on the week that their best player was on a bye week. We ALL quit and formed a new league without him, and that league is still together 14 years later.
  6. Rate My Groceries

    God - You're right. I am so screwed. All I was able to pick up in the later rounds was water chesnuts and a couple of beef bouillon cubes. I open week one against Smoked Salmon with Pinapple Chutney, Steamed Broccoli and a Cinnamon Apple Crisp. It is going to be a long long season. If only I had asked you guys sooner.
  7. Rate My Groceries

    You guys are right. Everyone else went Meat-meat-snackfood. My reaching for Asparagus has left me with only Ostrich and Beef-a-lo for my second meat.
  8. Rate My Groceries

    Meat: Steak 1:1 Dairy: 3:1 Feta Cheese Vegetable: Asparagus Spears 2:12 Snack Foods: 4:12: Chocolate Milk I was lucky enough to have the first pick – so I went with the obvious choice. Steak. It has always delivered the pleasure per dollar year-in and year-out, and I see no reason why it should not repeat its performance. After the long wait, and a run on vegetables (carrots, green beans and snap peas were all already taken), I decided to take Asparagus Spears with my 2:12. A safe choice, but with little upside. I immediately turned around and took Feta Cheese for my Dairy at 3:1. I expected, and received, much laughter and ribbing for this one – but what can I say – I just got a feeling this is going to be a huge year for this overlooked Dairy product. With my 4:12 I went with Chocolate Milk for my Snack Food (yes, Cheese-Its were already gone) I just feel that CM’s versatility to score both as a Snack Food and as Dairy made it a reasonable choice here. So what do you think so far? And do you think I should go Vegetable again in round five?
  9. SI Mock Draft

    If many QB's will throw at least 20 TD's - then why draft one in the first round? Supply and demand says you wait.
  10. SI Mock Draft

    Funniest thing about this pick is later in the 11th round he picks up Gado - and posts this as a comment: "Not thirlled about my Running Backs" Um, yeah . . . thanks "expert"
  11. Why Fantasy Football Excerpt Posted

    That's very true Chavez - but it only works if you use different tactics every now and then. You know - the whole "boy who cried wolf" thing. The "whaaaaat" guy is only doing it due to the misconceived notion that it makes him look smart.
  12. Why Fantasy Football Excerpt Posted

    Anyone else have a "Whaaaaat?" guy? No matter who you pick - he looks at you incredulously and yells "Whaaaaat?!? - don't you know he sprained his ankle/gets pulled at the goal line/is on a short leash?" He will say this regardless if you drafted this person in a very very late round or not.
  13. Over the years, my wife has become a huge NFL fan. She just watches differently than I do. I like to watch the strategy, the patterns, etc. She likes the "soap opera" part of the game. "T.O. = Bad; Favre fighting old age etc." Not sure though that you can "make" someone like it though, if she likes it, she'll watch it, if not - she wont. The trick would be to support her in whatever totally irrational thing makes her happy, so she can support you in your irrational love of the NFL.
