Keys to FF Success:
"Sing in me, Muse, and through me tell the story of that man skilled in all ways of contending…" --Homer, The Odyssey
"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will." --Vincent T. Lombardi
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours." --Henry David Thoreau
Post-Game Ritual: Call the opposing owner for the current week and trash their team's miniscule score. Call next week's opponent to issue dire warnings about the coming thrashing, and inquire if they would like to save themselves the humiliation and concede in advance.
Best Call of 2000: Drafting Jamal Lewis to be my #3 "insurance" RB. When Ricky Williams went down in week 10, Lewis carried me into the playoffs.
Favorite FF Team Names: Punitive Damages (a lawyer owns this one, surprise, surprise), The Black Watch.
Dennis Miller or no Dennis Miller? Just say no! His stand-up act used to be funny…
Ginger or MaryAnn? Ginger, every day and in every way.
