  1. Thanks guys! My points team was surprisingly turbo charged this season (sorry) but our head to head league and playoffs were very exciting.

    Congrats to Ian and Phil for second and third in head to head, and Sammy as the consolation winner. Congrats also to Ian and Carl for second and third in the points league. One more day and Phil may have sneaked into third there as well!

  2. This is the kind of 'journalism' you get when hack internet writers HAVE to come up with topics for their sites and stats are allowed to lord it over everything else. It is at least superior to a number of Yahoo! sports columns I've read this year going on for 3 or four paragraphs + -and video- which show an ump missing a close call or a player celebrating a play which is far from unusual, etc.,but with a big teaser headline .


  3. The nominations for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2014 are in, and the list includes Nirvana, Kiss, the Replacements and Hall and Oates. The rest of this year's hopefuls are the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel, LL Cool J, N.W.A., Link Wray, the Meters, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, Yes and the Zombies. The top vote-getters will be inducted in April at a ceremony in New York City.

    For the second consecutive year, the public gets to vote alongside the artists, historians and music industry insiders of the Rock Hall voting body. From now until December 10th, fans can vote on RollingStone.com for the nominees they'd like to see inducted. The top five acts will comprise a "fan's ballot" that will count as one of the more than 600 ballots that determine the Class of 2014.

    In order to be eligible for this year's ballot, artists or bands need to have released their first single or album in 1988 or earlier. Many of the nominees have appeared on previous ballots, but this is the first appearance for Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, the Replacements, Linda Ronstadt, Link Wray, Cat Stevens, Yes and the Zombies. (Gabriel was inducted as a member of Genesis in 2009.)

    Nirvana is the only act this year to land on the ballot in its first year of eligibility. Their cover of "Love Buzz" by Shocking Blue was their first single, hitting stores in late 1988.

    If Yes are inducted, it might lead to their first performance with original singer Jon Anderson since 2004. "I don't have any anger about our exclusion," Yes bassist Chris Squire told Rolling Stone in 2011. "But it would be a magnificent thing if they would include every member of Yes – I think there's about 19 or 20 of us."

  4. Looks like the final games are all in now , so congrats to this season's champion ...RonJon! :bow: :thumbsup: :partytime1:

    Well played this season-you sure got a great bunch right from the start for the most part. The final was exciting too, as it came down to the last day where I had at least a hail Mary chance to throw at you, but no luck today.

    Congrats to Carole for 3rd and Kenne for 4th, as well. Put your feet up now ,all, as it's nice to not have the daily grind of setting rosters etc. for a while now. :partytime2: :haveabeer:

  6. Top Ten Signs Your Neighbor Might Be A Serial Killer

    10. He sculpts tombstones in his shed.

    9. Often selling Domino's Pizza uniforms at yard sales.

    8. There's a human skull in the fridge.

    7. There are six lawn mowers and ten pairs of hedge trimmers lying in his front yard.

    6. Constantly comes over to borrow shovels, saws, and muriatic acid.

    5. Is a "duct tape enthusiast".

    4. His neighborly chats always come around to why some criminal was stupid and how they could have gotten away with whatever they were convicted of.




  7. You must be getting old ,Shawna. It seems she has clearly , and nicely, stated she's horny, imo.

    A very good poem, :googly: Jane. I'm a fan of this one . I know the feeling .

  8. I know the feeling - every day it's someone new. I hit the jackpot once already, with two going on the DL on the same day. There was no prize. :tongue:

    I hear you ,Carole. In my case it isn't so much people going on the DL right now ( that was a bigger problem earlier ) as that , at least, is visually obvious. I have to check many of the little news boxes because a number of my guys are forever missing a couple days or more without going on the DL and, in close match ups, a day or two of no production toward a category makes all the difference. Currently I have about 4 or 5 players like that-especially that fat bastard Sandoval-and there's little to choose from in FAs ! :goof:

  9. Let's get this made, Rocky. Some people may be on or going on holidays, etc. It sometimes takes a week or more to get everyone in, and you can't count on everyone being ready as soon as it is set up. As well , we need a little time to choose our draft picks and don't want to lose week 1 again ... ;)
