Fantasy Football Weekly Preview

September 28, 2012 |

I never thought I’d be SO HAPPY to have the regular officials back, but after watching countless replays of the “Inaccurate Reception” from Monday Night, Ed Hochuli and his traveling gun show I’ll be a sight for sore eyes this weekend.  I hope everyone read last week’s column and followed my advice, as there was a minimum of 100 points scored between the players I recommended you take a look at.  If you branched out on your own, it’s okay, I’m not offended.  We’ve just met and trust takes a long time to build.  Let’s just hope that you come around before your fantasy football team is mathematically eliminated from play-off contention, eh?

Sports Week-in-Review: Football in Full Swing Edition

September 24, 2012 |

I haven’t had cable television in over a month. No Gossip Girl, no Say Yes to the Dress, and worst of all, no SportsCenter or live sports. In that month I’ve moved, gotten a new roommate, and worst of all, was asked to write about the current events in the Sport-o-sphere. How am I going to do that without television!? I need that feeling of an unnecessarily large remote in my hand (seriously, does anyone even use the back half of that thing?), needlessly flipping back and forth between channels; otherwise watching the NFL isn’t truly watching the NFL.

Porchdrinking Fantasy Football Weekly Preview

September 20, 2012 |

I’ve finally finished traveling the country in search of the most up-to-date information on the fantasy football circuit. The good news? I’m back and can share this information with all of you. The bad news? The only bad news is for your opponents. You’re going to want to bookmark our page (you mean you haven’t done so already?) and make this part of your weekly preparation ritual. Not doing so is basically spotting your opponent a lead before the week’s games have even begun.

PorchDrinking Fantasy Football Draft Recap

September 13, 2012 |

Thank you to everyone for stopping by to read the draft recap for the inaugural fantasy football league.  Along with a pick-by-pick breakdown of every round, I’ve also included a brief snippet of analysis behind why I made the selection I did.  There also may be a snide remark mocking my fellow owners for their poorly made decisions.  On a rare occasion, I might even dole out some praise.  Be sure to check back weekly to see a quick breakdown on the previous week’s match-ups as well as some recommendations I have for the upcoming weekend’s matchups.  Good luck and good drinking!

Fantasy Draft List

August 29, 2012 |

Armchair quarterbacks, it’s time to move your recliners to the porch. Nothing goes better together than football and beer —for proof, look no further than the advertisements during any football game ever. And since there’s no shame in having a cold one during a game, it stands to reason that you might as well drink beer during fantasy football too, right?
