How Braylon Edwards is Ruining My Life
The end of the week got busy. I visited the Air National Guard base (I’ll post pictures when they’re declassified) and if you’ve been keeping track of the website, there’s been a lot of TinCaps news which I’ve been writing about.
Now… on to the topic at hand: Braylon Edwards is ruining my life.
1. He’s a Michigan alum. Dealbreaker.
2. Other than one good year, he torpedoed my Browns by dropping approximately 7.2 passes per game. Meanwhile he apparently became a model. When he was traded to the Jets, I thought he was out of my life forever. No such luck.
3. Thursday night: Thomas Jones, the Jets’ running back, is on my fantasy team. The Jets were driving. Against all odds, Edwards caught a pass inside the five yard line. I thought he was going to be tackled at the one, leaving an easy touchdown for Thomas Jones, but Edwards got in. No touchdown for the Cobra Kai fantasy football team. I guess ruining my real team wasn’t enough for him.
So yes, Braylon Edwards… ruining my life, no matter what he’s doing. Of course, I say that as the Colts just handed off to Joseph Addai for a touchdown, taking another touchdown away from usual fantasy-point-machine Peyton Manning. When Braylon Edwards is catching touchdowns and Peyton Manning isn’t throwing touchdowns, it’s pretty clear that it’s just not in the cards this year.
This might be the only time soccer is mentioned here, ever. Chris Watson and I were discussing that on Mike and Mike in the Morning last week, the TV broadcast had a scroll of World Cup teams and their nicknames. My personal favorite is the Slovakia Fighting Jondas, because one of my college roommates joined a fraternity nicknamed Jonda and I didn’t see him for two solid months. The only way I knew he was still alive was the growing pile of clothes on his chair. If Slovakia’s soccer tactics are as tough to track as my old roommate, look out. Chris was more of a fan of the Greek team’s Pirate Ship nickname. And who could blame him?
There’s a lot to talk about lately from TinCapsLand… I’ll talk about it at some point. Just know that there’s an ongoing battle between Mitch McClary and the local goose population, and this week the TinCaps are going to the Winter Meetings in Indianapolis. In addition to the trade talks, Rule 5 Draft, etc., the Winter Meetings are where league meetings, business seminars and other business-oriented conferences happen. It’s also a good place to see celebrities (if you’re into that kind of thing). I’ll be there starting Tuesday morning, so I’m sure I’ll have a report.
Have a good Sunday!
