Let it go, little buddy, let it go.

Thanks for posting, Billy, glad you guys enjoyed these...we actually came up with these at the ad agency I work for (Arnold in Boston) and had a feeling -- well, we hoped -- that they'd resonate with the more "enlightened" of the FF players out there, i.e. here at the Huddle, who would get such a concept, one that focuses on those unsung heroes who come out of the woodwork every year to put your FFF team over the top. So thanks. :D

 

A few notes:

 

• Alstott, Dunn and MJD were class acts, really great guys, and up for anything we wanted them to do. All were really good sports, and I'm going to have to fight the urge to take MJD #1 overall at WCOFF :D 'cause he was such a great kid. Shorter, as we all know, maybe 5'8", but his legs and "base" were like friggin tree trunks.

 

• We shot these at a public baseball/football field in lovely Bayonne, New Jersey, though you'd SWEAR it was Canton, Ohio, right?! :tup:

 

• We'll soon be launching a virtual Fantasy Hall of Fame site where all the inaugural 2007 inductees -- from Mike Anderson to Billy Volek -- will live, along with other fun fantasy football "exhibits" (the GM Wing of Honor, where YOU can be enshrined for your own great trades/moves/lineup decisions/drafts, etc) and viral videos -- you can customize a personal smacktalk video from Erik Karabell and Matthew Berry to send to your league. It'll also include FF content that ESPN writers are only contributing to the HOF (free, of course).

 

I'm biased, of course, because they're a client of ours -- yeah, I'm workin for The Man :doh: -- but ESPN is really stepping it up this year with their free game (with all the fixins) and other fun offerings like this whole HOF thing.

Yeah I know. Trust me. I lost a championship thanks to his career game that week. Not that it bothers me still or that I even remember it much.

 

But Dunn already was in their commercial so I excluded him.

 

But thanks for the memory... :D

Ron Dayne's Week 16 last year against the Colts was certainly a Fantasy Hall of Fame performance.

156 yards and 2 TDs was pretty good. And unlike Jackson, that pretty much came out of nowhere.

Didn't TJ Duckett have a 3 or 4 TD game in Week 16 a few years ago?

Not to pile on (too much), but, IIRC, you've not been competitive in that league since Dunn beat you singlehandedly. That must have been more disheartening that I thought for you to fold up like that for the last three or four years...
