    I guess if those guys want to play we could play at 12:30-1.

    If there is no rain of course.

    I think I did once. It would be nice if they'd get some stuff on RB, thats really all I play anymore.

    Man when we first played that Guitar Hero World Tour I was so excited to sing One Armed Scissor and Float On...thought I knew those songs pretty well, obviously not. Apparently I was off pitch and not fast enough (especially with ATDI). I think GH just sucks. I could so sing that song if it was on Rock Band. :D

    I would be really happy if they could also include "Napoleon Solo."

    Oh yeah, I'll be there tomorrow, yada yada. Around 12:30.

    True...true.

    By the way, I actually won our fantasy league.

    By rotisserie rules... :(

    But seriously, I was *****ed from day one in that league. I did all this research on who to pick, and got all these guys I had targeted. My strategy was basically to go for 3's, 3pt%, assists, steals, FT%, and A/T ratio, which you can usually find 5 or 6 of in one (Paul, Miller, Nash, Blake, etc.) and then get 3-point shooting bigs (Wallace, Lewis, Harrington). It was a near perfect draft for what I set out to do. But for some reason it never actually dawned on me that rebounds essentially counted for a quarter of the league...and that's the one area that I totally ignored.

    As soon as I realized that I face palmed for like an hour.

    Of course not. You must have been misinformed.

    I pretty much build my team on rebounding, blocks, steals and points. I got really lucky with my late round picks and early season free agents. My 19th round pick Mario Chalmers went on to average 2 steals a game... that was incredible.

    Eric Gordon, OJ Mayo, Brook Lopez... all big time contributors. 2nd year guys Thaddeus Young, Wilson Chandler and Kevin Durant stepped their games up considerably. Aldridge was about the same as last season. The rebounding whities Murphy and Lee were quite the difference. Troy Murphy is always underrated, I knew he rebounded and made 3s, but I was not expecting him to go nuts this season like that.

    Looking back on the draft its kind of funny, my 2nd and 3rd round picks (Josh Smith, Baron Davis) were largely disappointments, if I had picked other guys like Rashard Lewis or Joe Johnson instead I would have probably had an even more ridiculous year.

    Perhaps we should reschedule and try tomorrow.
