Our fantasy football trophy goes to….

I’m still trying to accept the fact that my buddy Dino and his team, Bologna Pony, won it all last year. The guy probably couldn’t tell you who the starting QB for Miami was at the end of the season and why. It’s the part of fantasy that you gotta hate. A guy can just print up a cheat sheet, show up to the draft, and rattle off a few names, that by some miracle end up being gold by the end of the year, and he wins the whole damn thing. Dino is the guy who knows rounds 1-4 and then turns to his trusted Huddle print out to get him through the rest of the night. What can you do? It happens all across the country. I just pray he isn’t the first guy in the 20 year history of my league to repeat as champ. The league may have to fold!

Yes, this guy will be in possession of The Fedele - fantasy football trophy.

How did I lose to this guy?

Fantasy football trophies and August

bill-and-danThis is the crazy time at FantasyTrophies.com. The time when guys email me to ask, “can you get me my fantasy football trophy by my draft?” The answer is usually yes, but pretty soon it will be unfortunately no. For that reason alone I’m writing this brief blog. GET YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TROPHY ORDER IN SOON. These guys are hand-made and I don’t have a ton of inventory. I do my best but eventually my best can’t produce a trophy for a league overnight. It just can’t happen. THAT’S IT. Thank you, Dave

Cleveland Browns fans are daring to dream

HolmgrenThis is always the time of year when Cleveland Browns fans dare to dream. I’m no different. Most of those times though the dreams quickly turn into nightmares that go on for a very, very long time. This particular nightmare has been going on for over 10 years now. The hope of so many of us though is that new team president Mike Holmgren will turn it all around. I’ve already heard fans talk of 9-7 or 8-8 as definite possibilities. Though I’m not going to throw out any predictions just yet, I will say that there is no doubt a different feeling surrounding the team from a fans standpoint. Holmgren has brought a breathe of fresh air to the organization and tells it like it is. Fans have had to put up with coaches or GM’s that do their best Bill Belichick impression and think less is always more. Holmgren is cut from a different cloth. One that seems to have been flapping in a cool Pacific breeze. It’s a far cry from the one fans have been used to- the dirty dishrag that has been thrown in the corner of a moldy basement. Believe me, moldy dishrags don’t make for pleasant dreams. -DM
