This post is going to sound very much like a sales pitch and I apologize, but I feel it needs to be said. Many fantasy owners start off their emails to me with the four words “I won my league”and then go on to say that they ran across our trophies and stopped looking. I don’t blame them. We continue to put our product up against any other so called fantasy trophy out there for quality, craftsmanship, and even price. If a league wants a cheap piece of crap or an overpriced plastic football they should go check out my competitors (and you’ll find plenty of them). Sites that claim to be selling fantasy sports trophies that are really just glorified pee wee flag football trophies. I don’t sculpt trophies that you’ll mistake for a paperweight or bronzed football, but rather trophies that embody the true essence of a fantasy fanatic. I’m sorry, but if you want a cheap thrill you’ve come to the wrong place. However, if you want the best made, most original fantasy trophy out there today your search is over-and so is this “sales pitch”. -DM
Football season has officially ended with the Steelers winning their 6th Super Bowl in 7 tries and my beloved Browns have yet to even step on a blade of grass with Super Bowl paint on it. So what does a Browns fan do now? That’s right–watch Lebron and the CAVS go after their first title ever. Cleveland has been on the losing end of history for nearly 50 years and hasn’t seen a championship since the 1964 Browns. Now don’t get me wrong- I’ll remain a Cleveland fan to the very end and my allegiance will never waiver. But I have a pretty good feeling Lebron could be the one to help quench that championship thirst that has plagued Cleveland fans for so long. I sure hope so because DAMN I’m thirsty! -DM
The Super Bowl is tomorrow and for a Browns fan it is always a day to dream. Dream of next season, the draft, usually a new coach(in this case Mangini), a new GM (Kokinis) and hopefully some wins. Having the Steelers in the big game, yet again, just adds salt to my ever growing open wound. Man, I think I’m going to start crack’in the beers early and hopefully I’ll be numb while the game is on.
Before you know it spring training will be here and talk of who should be the first pick will start. Some will go with Hanley Ramirez while others will make a case for Reyes, Pujols, or A-rod. However, much of my time will be spent putting the “Armchair Ace” up against any other fantasy baseball trophy on the market today. Sometimes I feel like an agent shopping my player around to interested teams while other sites pedal washed up, tired and pathetic excuses for trophies to baseball diehards everywhere. While the debate will wage for the next few months on who the first pick should be, I think it’s pretty clear that my man is in his prime and ready to take your league to a new level. (and he’s a bargain compared to C.C.)Good luck in your league.-DM
Fred Smoot (DB) of the Washington Redskins pulled off the upset and beat his commissioner, Chris Cooley, to win the first annual Washington Redskin’s Fantasy Football League. As a result, Smoot will take home the coveted “Throwback” trophy and will have bragging rights for the year. Apparently Cooley was so confident he would beat Smoot’s “DC Lumber” team that he filled out Smoot’s lineup for him prior to their matchup. “Cooley’s Zornado” lost by 3 points and like so many other fantasy owners will have to wait until next year wondering what could’ve been.
I’d like to thank Chris Cooley and the rest of the Redskins once again for playing for one of our “Throwback” trophies. To see Fred Smoot hoist the trophy over his head was exactly the reaction we’ve come to expect and I must say- never gets old. -DM
Check out the video for yourselves-
Many guys will be heard uttering those words right about now after they realize their dream of a title will have to wait until next year. Myself included. However, my buddies Bill and Dan, co-owners of “Everyone Loves Bush,” are justified in their anger after Visanthe Shiancoe (TE, Vikings) burned ’em for 136 yds and 2 tds in the title game of my league. It’s understandable. Especially because on his first TD he was actually down on the one yard line and Atlanta didn’t challenge. The fact they also had Peterson only added salt to the wound. Doesn’t Mike Smith know that it was the Super Bowl for millions of leagues out there? C’mon,throw the red flag! Congratulations to “Cool Brees” and my friend Bill, who captures his second title in the 18 year history of our league. My dream of a repeat was not to be and I’ll be passing the trophy his way come Sept. -DM
We’re excited to say that the Washington Times decided to do an article on FantasyTrophies.com when they heard the news that Chris Cooley and other Redskins were playing for one of our trophies.
Please check it out -DM
I would like to thank Chris Cooley, TE of the Washington Redskins, who recently decided to have the “Throwback” represent the Redskin’s Fantasy Football League. Cooley is the league’s commissioner and wanted to add some more excitement to the Redskin’s league. Many of the players can be seen on a video, unfamiliar with the basic rules of fantasy- including Santana Moss and Jason Campbell. I must say it was pretty funny to see.
However, Cooley was not very impressed with his teammates and thought a trophy would help. Well, we’re confident Chris should have no more concerns now that the Redskins will be playing for the “Throwback.” -DM
Fantasy men everywhere be forewarned. As we struggle to put together our line-ups and agonize over whether starting a goal line specialist is a wise move, our “loved ones” are finding strength in numbers. The women at WomenAgainstFantasySports.com have given a platform for our wives, girlfriends and female counterparts to speak out against what we know is hard and strenuous work. I wouldn’t expect my wife to understand the endless hours and months of preparation it takes to be prepared for my football draft. She may never even accept the notion that my league’s golf outing is part of “clearing one’s mind” in order to be more focused on the next days festivities. Or how a fantasy league barbecue is really necessary in the overall scheme of things. Regardless, I never figured she would find other women who seem to share her same view. Check ’em out:
And men, as a final warning, be prepared when your “loved one” starts wearing the panties underwear they offer on their site! As you can see, they take direct aim at what should be considered sacred. I mean, come on! Doesn’t my wife know that I am watching 12 hours of football every Sunday for the two of us?
