Random Thoughts - Week 17 of NFL Season

A few random thoughts for a Sunday morning, which happens to be the final week of the NFL regular season...

-If you're in a fantasy league that plays it's championship this week (Week 17), either convince the commissioner to change the schedule to end the season sooner next year or find a new league. If you're a commissioner of a league set up like this, change it up next season or expect another championship game between teams starting Charlie Whitehurst & Mark Brunell at QB. Wow, and just think...if the championship game were a week or two back, it could have been Brady against Vick.
-The Miami Heat continue to put up wins (as much as I wish they didn't).
-A totally unrelated story, the Cleveland Cavs continue to pile up the losses (as much as I wish they didn't).
-Speaking of the Cavs, rumor has it that they've shown an interest is Andray Blatche of the Wizards. Depending on what the Cavs were to give up to acquire him, I'd probably be in favor of this deal. He's a young player with a lot of talent, although he's had a bit off the court baggage this season (although in his defense, who doesn't get into a nightclub fight every now & then?).
-A lot of NFL coaching changes might go down in the next few days; I'd estimate as many as 10 teams might have new coaches next season (if there is a next season). Let's hope teams don't continue to be too short-sighted & give some head coaches time to make a difference & implement a winning culture (I'm talking to you, Cleveland Browns).

Good luck to all the fantasy teams starting Mark Brunell & Joe McKnight for their championship games!

Off Topic - Clean the Clutter: She's So Organized

Nowadays, who can't be more organized? I found a great new site (and business) that has just started up that I'd suggest checking out, especially if you're like me & can't keep up with all of the clutter.

Although I'm not an expert, here are a few thoughts of my own:
1) Get an iPad or other tablet for reading periodicals (such as magazines & newspapers). You'll also be able to find fantasy pre-season publications available specifically on the device from the app store or online newsstand.
2) Get rid of any draft prep documents immediately after your drafts are complete. Obviously, recycling is best!
3) If you have kids, ask them to clean for you. Kids are great - they're like having little helpers around the house to do all of the things that we don't want to. And the exciting part, they often love helping out & don't realize they're doing manual labor!

Check it out & and enjoy!
