Fantasy Scoreboard: Weeks 6 & 7

I'm a week behind on my post from last week, but I'm currently watching a marathon of an MTV show from 2008, so in comparison, a week is really alright.

I spent last weekend in the motherland, frolicking around fields checking out awesome bands at ACL, eating tremendous amounts of tacos chased with copious amounts of tequila....

Tequila in my hand, tacos in my tummy, happiness in my heart and drunken insanity in my mind.

Tequila in my hand, tacos in my tummy, happiness in my heart and drunken antics on my mind.

and most importantly WATCHING MACK BROWN AND THE LONGHORNS CRUSH OKLAHOMA. Also, the Cowboys beat the Redskins. And I got to watch both those games from Texas. DC served me a cruel slap in the face by having the engine of my car die as soon as I returned, thus making me too much of a frantic car shopping mess to talk fantasy football last week.

Now that I've gotten some good ramblings out of the way, let's proceed with this week's and last week's studs & duds.

Fantasy Scoreboard: 2013 Week One

Football season is back. And with it, hearts full of optimism. Thousands upon thousands of fans full of the beautiful possibility of a winning season. The glimmer of the playoffs seems obtainable and a winning season is without a doubt going to happen. I think we all sat down Thursday night to watch the game full of the hope of 5 months of hard-fought battles and well-earned victories. It's like sitting in the East Dillon locker room letting Coach Taylor fill you with inspiration and the knowledge that the game is bigger than yourself.

"A few of you have been here. A few of you have not. One thing we all have to do tonight, we've got to focus. The game plan, the fundamentals, gentlemen, moving the sticks what we're going to be doing out there. And listen, fellas, there's a joy to this game, is there not? There's a passion, there's a reason why we're all out here. Other than the fact the pride that it gives us and the respect that it demands we love to play the game so let's go out there and have fun tonight. Do you understand? Because tomorrow, if you give 100% of yourself tonight people are going to look at you differently. People are going to think of you differently. And I promise you you're going look and think differently about yourself. Clear eyes, full hearts. Can't lose."

Oh Coach Taylor, how I wish you were a real person.
