Browns Finally Got It Right with Hue Jackson

Browns fans everywhere breathed a huge sigh of relief when the organization finally hired Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson.  I know I did.  My fears of another first time head coach were real considering the Browns history.  Since the franchise returned in 1999, only Eric Mangini had prior head coaching […]

My New “Tool” For The Shop

The saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” definitely rings true here at FantasyTrophies.com.  The other day I was on my way to the shop when I spotted a 50″ Samsung television outside of the coffee shop I go to each morning.  I’ve been thinking about how incredible it […]

Sports Illustrated Visits Fantasy Trophies

As I sit here in my Brooklyn studio writing this post, I still don’t think it has fully sunk in that two guys from Sports Illustrated were here interviewing me for a video feature on FantasyTrophies.com.  As a ten year old I would draw images of athletes from the covers […]

Thanks For The Help Dad

Anyone that knows my Dad knows that he is no doubt the hardest working man you’ll ever run across.  I guess when your formative years are spent in Italy, as a shepherd boy working on a farm, it tends to have an influence on who you become.  Let’s just say […]
