Fantasy football wrap-up.

I played fantasy football again this season…

I really went overboard with the drafts back before the season started. I wound up with a whopping ten teams this season. That’s twice as many as last year. I ended up with a combined record of 84-46 for the season. The majority of my teams did pretty well with seven of my ten teams making the playoffs. And I ended up winning the championship in four of my ten leagues. My Giant Foam Fingers marched through the regular season undefeated. And they were one of my teams that won their championship, capping off a perfect season! I’ve never had a perfect season in fantasy football before…

Here’s my undefeated lineup from the final championship weekend…

My starting QB was Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson. So it was a little nerve-racking when the Ravens sat him for the final game of the season. Thankfully, I had Drew Breese stashed away for an emergency. Here are my other championship teams…

So once again, I can call myself a fantasy football champion. I think fantasy football is so much fun. It makes the football season really interesting and enjoyable, especially when you’re winning. 😀🏈🏆❤️

Fantasy basketball update.

At the midway point of the season, I still have two undefeated teams…

And I have two teams that are sitting at 9-1…

My other teams are 7-3, 7-3, 5-5 and 4-6. Fantasy basketball is pretty dang fun. 😀🏀❤️

Champions!

This afternoon we drove over to the Westside to find Elder High School…

Our nephew, Liam’s St. Antoninus Jaguars were playing in the GCYL Division I Reserve Football League championship at Elder High School’s “The Pit” Elder Stadium…

Liam’s St. Antoninus team won 28-6, the same score they won by in the semi-final.  They won the championship and went undefeated on the season!

Congrats, Liam! 😀🏈❤️

On our way out of “The Pit,” we saw this terrific Lego replica of the stadium…

Pretty neat.

Pause for paws.

Just hanging out with Mack this morning watching my two very favorite English Premier League teams play each other…

I’ve loved Arsenal for the last thirty years. They’re my favorite soccer team of all-time. Hands down. When Leceister City won promotion to EPL back in 2014, I decided the Foxes would be my bottom of the table team. I would cheer Arsenal to battle for championships and pull for Leceister to stay up in the top flight.

Imagine my shock when my lower-level team wins the Premier League championship the very next season in 2015/16. And so far this season, Leceister is sitting up in third behind Liverpool and Manchester City and my “top of the table team” is floundering in sixth place.

Leicester continued their great form and beat Arsenal today 2-0. 😀🐾⚽️❤️

 

Three years ago.

Three years ago today, everyone was waking up to a world where the Chicago Cubs were finally World Series champions after 108 years…

GO CUBS GO! Thanks for the memories, Timehop! 😀🦕⚾️❤️

That reminds me, if you ever get the opportunity to watch Let’s Play Two, it’s terrific…

Let’s Play Two is a documentary that chronicles Pearl Jam’s legendary performance at Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 season. With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is unparalleled in the world of sports and music.

It’s just an incredible film that made me fall in love with Pearl Jam all over again. And it does an amazing job of telling the story of the years of heartbreak to the elation of Cubs fans and mystique of Wrigley Field and how it all intertwines with Pearl Jam playing Wrigley Field during Cubs magical run to their World Series championship. That’s a wicked long run-on sentence but it’s just a great documentary that I ended up buying and watch probably once a week.

And while we’re talking about baseball during the non-baseball season, peep this…

It’s all the Cincinnati Reds Big Red Machine team shown through baseball cards framed on a baseball diamond organized by player position. I’ve never really seen anything like this and I just thought it was also really pretty neat.

Are you ready for some football?

This afternoon, we hopped over to St. Bernard to watch our nephew, Liam play in the GCYL Division I Reserve Football League semi-final at Roger Bacon’s Bron Bacevich Memorial Stadium…

Liam’s St. Antoninus team won 28-6! And now they’re moving on to play for the Division I Reserve championship next weekend!

Congrats, Liam! 😀🏈❤️

FC|C Warehouse sale.

And while they were queueing up for sneakers over on Fourth Street, I was queueing up inside the Westin Hotel for the annual FC Cincinnati warehouse sale…

Everything was pretty much half-off the original price…

I got us a whole bunch of new FC Cincinnati gear. I got Genifer the t-shirt and two tanks in the photo above. And I got an away jersey, t-shirt, long-sleeved shirt, and a hoodie. With that, I’m good on FC|C gear for a very, very long time to come. 😀⚽️❤️

Seven years ago…

We went to see the Reds host the Giants in the Game 3 of the 2012 NLDS!

And even though the Reds lost 2-1, it was still one of the best single-game sports atmospheres I’ve witnessed. The Reds would go on to lose the series 3-2 after winning the first two games in San Francisco. That’s the last time the Reds were in the postseason. But at least at this playoff game, they didn’t get no-hit.

Timehop is pretty fun.😀🦕❤️
