Here is the
FANTASY FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS
We had our draft earlier in the week and the class is beginning to show. Our draft included these players: QB: Peyton Manning; RBs Alfred Morris and Arian Foster; Wrs: Wes Welker and Antonio Brown; TE: Jared Cook; Kicker: Matt Prater; Def: Steelers and our sleeper rookie RB Shane Vereen at the flex spot (no known relation to former State Attorney candidate Rod Vereen) . The league scores 4 points per throwing TD and 1 point per 20 throwing or reception yards. With Manning lighting up the Ravens for 469 yards and 7 TDs, 2 to our WR Welker, and our kicker with 7 extra points, we head into full Sunday action with a very comfortable 81.6 points and our RBs haven't even taken the field yet. We are playing "Team Fiman" who is going to need a lot of Luck with Luck at QB, Martin at RB, and WRs Lance Moore, Cecil Shorts, Pierre Garcon, and TEs Jason Witten and Jimmy Graham, K Dan Bailey and Da Bears as his Def.
DOM currently has the "arrrgh" award for drafting sleeper Denver TE Julius Thomas but not starting him and losing that stellar two TD, 23 point FF performance. Better luck next week.
Remember our tried and true formula: In the first few weeks the public has not caught up to the trends of the new year and tend to bet based on last year's performances.
Cardinals at Rams: We like the over 42. We like the Chiefs as a road favorite (-4) over the dysfunctional Jaguars. Lay the 3 with the Bucs on the road over the J....E....T....S... and hold your nose and lay the 10 on the cheaters over the Bills. So in review, we are picking against three home dogs, which in the real world is a good way to go broke quick.
Enjoy your weekend.
Rochus Misch, the bodyguard of Adolph Hitler, and the last survivor of the bunker where Hitler committed suicide on April 30th,
But the universe works in strange ways.
Misch and his wife Gerda who died in 1997 had a daughter: Brigitta Jacob-Engelken, who learned from her maternal grandmother that her mother (married to Hitler's bodyguard) was Jewish. If that was the end of the story, the irony would notable. But Misch's daughter grew up to be an architect. She became estranged from her father and spent time on an Israeli kibbutz. Her specialty in her work in Germany is restoring local synagogues.
Karma. Life finds a way, despite the darkness of evil.
