Damn you, Tim Tebow! Damn you straight to hell! It’s Sunday morning, 9:25 a.m. and I can either start Tebow against the Lions D (who I own) or I can start Matt Schaub against the Jags. I’ve wanted to go with Schaub all week, but now, here I sit, seriously considering putting in Tebow. Why? Cause the man put up like 25 pts in 2 minutes last week! Sure he sucked for the whole game, but he has the potential to be fantasy gold int he 4th quarter. So you sit and bitch for 3 quarters about how terrible he is, only to fall in love all over again when that 4th quarter rolls around. Bleh, whatever, I am going with Scaub.
Also, what in the world is going on in that picture?
Unless I don’t….
1.) I saw Bridesmaids last night and for once, I think an overhyped movie deserved the hype. It was pretty damn funny. We also watched 28 Days Later, which I had never seen. I’m not sure how that’s possible cause I love zombie movies and that one got a lot of praise. And it was well deserved. Not a bad movie at all. But not as good as…
2.) The original DAWN OF THE DEAD! Man, I watched this yesterday afternoon by myself and it freaked me out. Those 70’s/80’s horror movies with their grainy film and synthed out soundtracks are always much more scary to me than these new age flicks with their sawing off of the legs and making human centipedes and what not. Getting back to Dawn of the Dead, there is something about it that is just plain unsettling. Some of it has to do with the zombies eating people (especially when the zombie eats the biker’s stomach. Gah, that is so gross!) but I think it’s the fact that these folks had everything perfect in the mall until some more humans, not zombies, showed up and ruined it all. In conclusion, can’t we all just get along?
3.) As I type this, the song Lakini’s Juice by Live is playing (I’m not proud of this) and the singer just said, “I rushed the ladies room took the water from the toilet, washed her feet and blessed her name.” Um…what?
4.) Speaking of music, you know what always gets me in the mood for fall? Listening to Yes and Pink Floyd. When it comes to Yes, my freshman year of high school, on the ride home from soccer practice, my brother would always blast Yes in his light blue Aries K station wagon (equipped with collapsing roof material!) and now, everytime I hear Starship Trooper, I think of fall. With regards to Pink Floyd, I think I listened to The Wall about 500000 times during my sophomore year. The best song on the album? No, it’s not Confortably Numb, it’s Run Like Hell!
Ok, last week I think I was 2 for 3 on my three team tease which is a lot like kissing your sister. It gives you something to do, but it gets you nowhere. This week, I like:
DENVER +3 over Detroit
KC +3 over San Diego
New England -2.5 at PITTSBURGH
Let’s see how it goes. Now, back to tweaking my lineups!
