Breaking News as Hoops Season Ends

16 04 2009

On the last day of the fantasy basketball season, my squad miraculously snuck into a tie for second place, having sat in third for months.  Props to the Hurricane, who elected to bench our three best players–LBJ, Paul Pierce and Rashard Lewis–all of whom did not play.  And congrats to the first place guy, the first ever to beat Hurricane and I, who had a 16.5 point advantage in a 12 team rotisserie league, which is pretty remarkable.  He led the league nearly all year with a team that featured top-pick Chris Paul, healthy Yao Ming, career-year Troy Murphy, bounce-back Ray Allen, finally-got-it-together Andrea Bargnani, and yay-Mike-D’Antoni Nate Robinson.

In other breaking news, Jon Barry MVP Matt Bonner got added on the last day of the season, by the very team I said should pick him up (after I emailed the manager).

With hoops and hockey done, attention will focus on baseball for now, until fantasy football season, or something else pops up.


ProStars v2.0

10 09 2008

With Lance Armstrong unretiring, Roger Federer winning the US Open, and Tiger Woods set to return from injury next year, it looks like my dream cast for ProStars 2.0 may be set to continue its run.  Well actually, my dream cast involved Kobayashi in the peak of his awesomeness…maybe he and Chestnut will make some cameos.  Also, the original cast of Jordan, Gretzky and Bo Jackson should be involved as mentors for the new generation of crime-fighters, like in Batman Beyond.

I really just want to see what my co-blogger can do with the artwork here, after a solid job with the Varsity Patriots.  But since this is supposed to be a fantasy sports blog, I’ll mention that if I were to use athletes from fantasy sports as the Prostars, which I shouldn’t, since no one is as dominant in their sport as the original trio, I’d go with LaDainian Tomlinson, Chris Paul and Albert Pujols.
