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.

Any update on Kurt Thomas? Didn't see it in this article...

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.
