Yeah, yeah. Stuff coming.

I know I haven't posted in a while, but I promise I will tomorrow.  I will have a complete trip wrap-up and my NFL picks over the next two days.  It's just been a whirlwind.  After Fenway we went to bars, then woke up early the next morning and drove 5 hours to Cooperstown, then drove three hours back that night to Poughkeepsie, then got up at 7:30 the next morning and drove to New York and did NYC stuff, then got up the next morning to fly home and had a fantasy auction that night and a fantasy draft tonight.  So yeah, it's been busy.  I'll get around to it. 

Tonight's draft was interesting because it's a "family league" and I co-own a team with Mrs. W.  In order to keep her interest as long as possible I let her draft a bunch of players for our team by giving her a list of of players and letting her pick.  Tonight, I think because I was fairly burned out and also because I wanted to punch my kids I gave her more leeway than usual.  She decided tonight, between pounding Chardonnay, that she'd pick guys who had "annoying names."  We ended up with a LaSean, a DeSean, and a Marshawn, along with Santonio, Hakeem, Marcedes, Jordy, Sebastian, and Willis McGahee (because "McGahhe is annoying because it should just be McGee, dammit.")  Good times. 

Also, did you know Joe Benson is white?  This isn't quite like when I learned Lew Ford was white, but it's close.

You mean "black names?"

Exactly. Like Sebastian.

I would be annoyed with Sebastian after having to endure two Sebastian Telfair stints as a Wolves fan.

Sorry. Black names & white Euro names.
