A Moment in Mullet Time

3:39 am: The Mullets are awake in the middle of the night, unable to sleep because they have some cocktail of SARS/Bird Flu/Mad Cow. The Mullet are sitting on the can having cold farts but unable to poop. Why did Mike Bibby go 1-11? Why? Why?

The Return of the Best League Ever

Miser!!! Welcome back to the blog, brother! I look forward to your next power rankings.

Shout out to the Mullets!

What I Learned In School

Kudos to Loser's Row for teaching me that just when you think you've finally passed the point of no return for being utterly pathetic when it comes to fantasy basketball, think again.

I was on my way home from a fascinating mortgage banker's convention in Orlando, which was also attended by The Flux might I add, when I frantically reached for my Blackberry to check for updates on the Terrelle Pryor signing.

I was more pleased, however, to discover this incredible email exchange between the Seattle Times beat reporter and our own Loser's Row.

Thanks for reading. That's my bad, I didn't update his injury. Kurt did
not practice on Tuesday because of the scratched right eye, but said on
Monday that he should be fine by today. We'll know more by game-time.
Thanks, again, for reading and I apologize for leaving that information
out. Take care...Jayda Evans


How pathetic! Of course this got me to thinking:

Do you have an update on how Brand's progressing at all? We haven't heard anything in a little while and I suspect that fantasy bball fanatics such as myself are getting a little anxious with the playoffs quickly approaching. How is his rehab going since he was cleared for more strenuous running and jumping? Is he practicing? Does he look good? Is there a timetable set yet? I'd sincerely appreciate a brief update on his progress if you have one. Thanks a lot.

I should have an update once they return from the road, before the all-star break.


If YKJ Blogged...

We're back folks. With the playoffs rapidly approaching I thought it was an opportune time to get things back up and running on here...that is until Chad completely takes it over again.

Here is the highlight of my day, which was provided by Yom Kippur at Joel's:
