Hey folks

I’ve mentioned it a few times this August I joined the Fantasy Sportswriter Association’s Experts League. The playoffs just wrapped up and I finished 8th in the playoffs (16 teams) which is also 8th overall out of 64 teams. These teams included people like Michael Fabiano of NFL.com, Stephania Bell and Chris Harris of ESPN as well as less known names like CBSSports.com’s Jamey Eisenberg and George Winkler from the Sporting News.

We all got smoked by Sigmund Bloom of Footballguys.com. The man was on a mission, got out of the gates fast during the playoffs and never looked back. The playoffs were more 15 teams fighting for 2nd as Sig just went off. I am very happy for my Drive-Block co-host – he worked hard and it showed.

Still, amongst this illustrious group, to finish 8th is an achievement I am very proud of. I won my 16 team division and had a nice little run in the playoffs – which were not head to head but total overall points (regular season was head to head).

Not bad for a small indie site.
