A non-fantasy football blog post . . .

Deidra told  me I should post about something other than fantasy football. Easy for her to say - she's ahead of me in the standings.

At any rate, feel free to consider this blog post about anything other than fantasy football.

And if there's anything in particular you would like me to blog about, please let me know. I will try to accommodate all requests.

P.S. Deidra, I love you.

A Fantasy Football Season Portrait

Draft Pick #1: Tom Brady (NE-QB) - Injured early on in week one and will be out for the entire football season.

Draft Pick #2: Terrell Owens (DAL - WR) - Still healthy, but QB Tony Romo was injured in week 6 and is possibly out for up to four weeks. The replacement QB played horribly this week.

Draft Pick #3: Marques Colston (NO - WR) - Underwent surgery prior to week #2 and was out until this week (week 7), when he returned to the field and proceeded not to catch a pass all game.

Draft Pick #4: Reggie Bush (NO-RB) - I guess with the return of teammates Colston (above) and Shockey (below), Bush decided it was his turn to get injured this week. He'll be out the next 3-4 weeks.

Draft Pick #5: Jeremy Shockey (NO-TE) - Injured around the same time as Colston (above) and also return to playing this week after being out for 5 weeks.

For the record, I am not a big New Orleans Saints fan (even less so now). I just happened to draft all of those players in our autopick draft. Needless to say, my season has not been the best so far. I'll be 3-4 after a loss this week.

Oh well, at least it produced my first blog post in almost a month, right?
