Re: My Fantasy Football League Needs One...

I lost my big money league on the very last play for our players - the Thomas TD in Denver.

Luckily my Mahomes/Hunt helped cover up my worst coaching decision ever in my other league. I'm a great GM, shitty coach.

Re: 2018 MLB Week 1

So Betts ran in to catch a shallow fly by Bregman. Ball was in front of him the entire time. He didn't have to dive. He just put his glove out and botched it. Ruled a hit. Dafuk? The best was there was somehow overwhelming evidence to overturn the call on second on that play, but not on Bregman's c...

Re: My Fantasy Football League Needs One...

On the play during the game-winning drive where Kelce got drilled in the end zone, Hunt was wide open and would've trotted in for the score. That would've been an epic comeback, but alas I fall short and now get to lament not starting Alshon over Cole. Ugh.
