It’s that time of the year…NASCAR and Football!!
I have been watching quite a bit of NASCAR lately trying to get pumped up for The Chase here in a few weeks. Congrats to Tony for his win at Watkins Glen. That makes three wins this year and 30 bonus points and he is securely in The Chase. I was a little upset that Mark’s crew chief tried to play the gas mileage game last week at Michigan. Mark was not in a position to go for the win last week unlike Jimmie Johnson. It was not worth the gamble and well..Mark is now 12th in the standings. Congrats to Brian Vickers last week for his first win in the #83 and his Red Bull team. Plus his stock went up with me because frankly, Kyle needs his ass kicked. He is a good driver don’t get me wrong, but enough already. I agree with Brian Vickers…I didn’t get the memo stating either that it was the Kyle Busch show. It’s called racing Kyle did you get THAT memo? It’s great Kyle is passionate about his racing, but you aren’t going to win every single race. Sometimes the mark of a good racer is the way you behave when you lose.
I have my fantasy football set for this year. This will be first time I have ever attempted fantasy football. I didn’t go to the draft part because I was dealing with a cranky infant. However I sent Postman with my game plan and budget and to be honest he did pretty good. I really, really wanted Peyton Manning as my other quarterback, but he just went for too much money and to be honest that was not where I needed to put my money. Besides I do have his brother Eli as my main QB so I am pretty OK with the team. I would rather have a team with several good players than a team with one star and crappy players. We shall see how things go for me—stay tuned.
Work has been somewhat interesting and stressful of late. But hopefully things have turned the corner…as they say hope springs eternal
I am excited about how the Texas Rangers are challenging for the playoffs this year. I have actually enjoyed watching them. And now that Pudge is back it’s going to be interesting to watch that Wild Card race with Boston and Tampa Bay. Go Rangers! Hopefully the Cowboys are somewhat better than last year. I think with TO leaving and Romo able to get focused on things on the field instead of what’s going on in the tabloids etc. It’s going to be interesting as well for my Red Raiders. I am excited though. I don’t know if it will be as thrilling as last year, but I am sure the Red Raiders will have some surprises this year.
Little Smoke starts first grade on Monday! Woo Hoo! We still have some issues we all have to work through, but he is improving and I think things will settle down once he gets into his school routine. He is playing flag football this year and Postman will be his coach. Postman may have to ban me from his games because I can get a little passionate about football and no I am NOT one of those moms either. I respect what the coaches do and let them do their job.
