Late to the party...

I know i'm a little late with this review since its been out for a couple months but since I don't drink coffee, I don't go to Dunkin Donuts.  But finally tried the croissant donut that has been all the rage.  It was light,
fluffy and tasty but not all that its been led to believe.  Definitely not worth 2.5 times the price of a regular donut.  Waste of money if you ask me. Man this is 2 bad reviews in a row.


Suck it Smiddy !!

Monday, January 12, 2015

We all need help,

in one way or another. Some people are too proud to ask or just too stubborn.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. KKaties has 1/2 priced wings and trivia on Monday nights. Why haven't we done this yet?
2. The Border cafe is cheap as fuck.
3. The Equalizer was a pretty dope ass movie.
4. Mike G is alive, he has a house rented for snow mobiling if anyones interested. He is also planning a night out at Foxwoods.
5. Little know fact that Jeffrey is great at changing windshield wipers and changing a flat in record time.
6. Chrissy is way into reviewing things for the blog. He sent me a review of the croissant donut. I will post it later so that its not buried.
7. Refinancing your home shouldn't be all that stressful.
8. I heard a rumor that Mike Foley is really settling into that NC life and isn't planning to come home.
9. Anyone have any home remedies or anything to get wine out of a rug??
10. Sometimes the weekend doesn't seem long enough.
11. Is anyone having a superbowl party?
12. Mario throws one hell of a bender. TK should of made the trip to the North shore.
13. Jeffrey it's ok to let everyone know you are drinking Bud heavy now.
14. Squares! Squares! Squares!
15. Looks like there will be a new Dot Day bowl off champion. Steven Whitley is in a league and can no longer participate.
16. Shrimp and stuffed cherry peppers are in the bloody Marys at Stars.

This is what I hate right now:
1. People who break plans.
2. Why you try something new at your favorite place to eat and it sucks.
3. The god damn hiccups.
4. When I am sweating but my feet are cold as hell.
5. Overtalkers, as in people who talk over you to try and prove their point.


Hope you guys can make the 5th annual Whitley yankee regift party this Saturday at 5

A new year

So lets see it is 2015 and I am sure plenty of people have made resolutions. Have you? Are you sticking with them?

This is what I have learned so far in 2015:
1. Karaoke up at the Cathay Center is like American Idol.
2. Is there any better feeling than hitting Keno?
3. Jeffreys birthday is in February on Friday the 13th. Foreigner is playing at Twinnies. Coincidence?
4. Mikey T is looking for an electrician to do some side work. Know any?
5. Is $500 for 2 $200 squares and open bar and food too much?
6. Meat raffle! Every Saturday! 4:00! Nuff said

7. A little confidence goes along way.
8. Its superbowl square season. Which is one of my favorite seasons.
9. Everyone loves the go pro cameras. EVERYONE!
10. Jeffrey may be more into snap chat than Chrissy.
11. 
12. Anyone need some baby sitting jobs? Chrissy is looking for some Saturday baby sitting for the next 3 months

This is what I hate right now:
1. People with the post holiday blues.
2. Mushrooms!
3. Mother fuckers who don't text back.
4. All these fancy new mayonnaises. It is still just mayo!
5. Everyone who cuts in line. Like dipshit you think I am just standing here for the fuck of it?


Popeyes Ghost Pepper wings


I love Popeye's and everyone knows I love hot wings, so when I saw a commercial that they combined them I was pumped. I got 12 ghost pepper wings and although the chicken itself was great I was a little disappointed in the heat level. I wasn't expecting crazy hot,  I figured they would mellow it out even using the ghost pepper but this was barely hotter than their spicy flavor they usually have.  Maybe its because its a dry rub and not a sauce but you can save the time of running out to get these.


Thats how you review a place Smiddy!

ADSL TMX RECAP

TMX recap of the season is here!!


What a wild ride!! We had new players and we had some players leave midseason, there were more trades than ever and in the end we had a great final day/ DMC owner bday celebration!! Sierra missts for everyone!! The final week had our lowest scores with Slippery Wizards finish the season with a win with 125pts!! The fight for the money came down to the last week and the top three were Slippery Wizards, Black Dynomite and DMC. As is the custom the season review will be with hits from the greatest era the 80s( Iggles with the assist on the songs). Here are the final standings

1.Slippery Wizards
2. Black Dynomite................................134pts
3. DMC................................................172pts
4. Beachbums.......................................255pts
5. FYW.................................................286pts
6. Tony Gonzalez...................................359pts
7. The Jackals........................................377pts
8. Supah Ps............................................487pts
9. Voodoothatyoudo.................................594pts
10. Grahamatron......................................633pts

Now onto the 80's hit that best describes the season for each team as TMX saw it.

Slippery Wizards - WALKING ON SUNSHINE- Katrina and the waves. Somehow from week 3 on they were able to run the table with a team led by Matt Ryan and trading position players for Defenses.  Slippery Wizards constantly tried to trade his "target monster" Keenan Allen and Julio Jones and somehow was able to turn Julius Thomas and Foles into under performing (at the time) Demaryius Thomas and Gronk. Seemed like every move they put out there worked, the old saying horseshoe up his ass comes to  mind except they may have had the whole horse! Just cruised to the title and walking on sunshine the whole way.



Black Dynomite - Headed for a Heartbreak- Winger. How else can you explain the self proclaimed "wagon" who had a great team stacked with Manning, Charles, Bell ( mvp??), Olsen ( sneaky great tight end) and what looked like enough to run the table. After taking congrat on winning the season in week two it seemed a heartbreak was going to happen with all the hype. BD did make it to the money and won several weeks but in the end there has to be disappointment considering he had the extra picks at the draft and missed a great opportunity to run away with the league.



DMC- Smooth Criminal- Michael Jackson. The Dmc team was a two trick pony just hanging around the top for a while but he knew there was a chance Rodgers/Jordy may not be enough to finish in the money so he crafted some of the biggest trade rapes TMX has ever seen! Somehow picking up (at the time) the top wr in Antonio Brown and the top rb Demarco Murray (mvp?). Smooth criminal INDEED!!  The deals may not have put DMC on top but it got him close and definitely kept him in the money.  Tmx supports making any and all trades to help your team and it takes two to tangle so I'm sure the teams that gave up on their stars thought they did the right thing. Nice try DMC almost moonwalked to third place you crafty bastard.



BeachBums - Glory Days - Bruce Springsteen. Man the Beachbums had and off year and after the halfway point were real quiet wondering if they were at hope staring in the war room that built all those magical teams humming glory days. "throw that speedball by you, make you look like a fool" BBums still were their usual leader in the transactions but it was an odd year with them not in first for a portion of the season. Lets hope they rebound and come back to contention next year.



FYW - Nothing but a good time - Poison. How else can you explain FYW ( name change never explained to TMX)? They continued to just roll through the league hanging around the money while playing players on the IR and picking up guys and plugging them in and getting 3 tds games. One big party over there without a care in the world team was built for the 80s!!



Tony Gonzalez - Bust a move- Young MC- The self proclaimed man who brought trading to the league!! What other 80s hits fits?? "dont just stand there, bust a move" TG/noromo made moves on top of moves and the Dez move may have backfired (all about the Benjamins) but he didn't stop and was able to climb close to contention despite losing draft picks. Not the greatest season but not the disaster it was looked to be at the draft.



The Jackals - Big Shot - Billy Joel. New comer to the league came in both guns blazing (wins his other leagues i'm sure) Taunted the league with Shady before pulling the trigger on what turned out to be a good deal. "had to be a big shot didnt cha" was all talk when he was on top but got real quiet til called out and put up the bet with TG/noromo. He lost the bet and probably learned a lesson in the process. Welcome to a real league Jackals.



 Supah P's Dangerzone - Kenny Loggins- Wow scary season for Supahs. Coming off the dress the supah p's were in the bottom for most of the season fighting for their lives! DANGERZONE.  They held strong and actually clinched 8th place early enough to relax somewhat. If they could get a wr who could score over 10pts who knows what would've been!!



Voodoothatyoudo - Eyes without a face - Billy Idol. Took over the team midway through from "Prison eyes" Voodoo tried everything to revamp a roster that he didnt create, "eyes without a face, faaaaaaaaaace" even trading the best rb for pennies on the dollar! Hopefully he comes back with a roster he builds and likes and with a real team name! Welcome aboard.



Grahamatron - Dont stop believing - Journey. What a rough season for Grahamatron. Only advice TMX has is don't stop believing!! Gotta trust your players, making a quick trade of three starters seemed to seal the Gramatrons fate.  Grahamatron will be back as they always are and I'm sure wont be a back to back dress wearer.




   It was a great season as it always is and TMX had a blast reporting it. Special thanks to drunknothings for its help in the blogs and Wes Cash for investigative reporting. The end of the season party was fun maybe next year the whole league shows ( aimed at you Rob and Skza). Next season draft date is August 22 and as always we will fight over where to have it but it will take place and hopefully not be a 5 hour affair!! Thanks to the commish for runnng the league and making sure the everyone is paid. Congrats to the winners and to the losers be better next year. Winners win.

TMX OUT til next year.

11. The guy who works at Imperial Terrace may legit want to have sexual relations with Chrissy.
12. Congrats to the Slippery Wizards on their 2nd ADSL championship.
13. Heart burn is the worst thing ever. Well besides herpes.
14. Has anyone heard from Smiddy? I asked to hang out with him and he was a no call no show.
15. Is anyone having a house party for New Years eve?
16. Chiefdude didn't know I had an OCD with numbers.

Hope everyone has a great end of the year. See you in 2015

Week 16 TMX review

(Due to the holiday season and everyone travelling or getting bombed , we have the the owner of the Dirty Moon Crickets here as a guest writer so lets do this)

TMX here with their week 16 review.

We didn't see the scoring that we had become accustom to in week 16. No one really went off and as usual if different teams played other players then they may of won the week, we are looking at you Beach Bums with Manny Sanders on the bench.


First place was DMC with 147 as the two trick pony was not shut out for a second straight week. Second was the Slippery Wizards with 133 as Mike Evans let them down. Third was Beach Bums with 119 points, considering they had the Bench mob this week you may of wanted to use some of those 115 bench points. Fourth was That Voodoo that you Do with 114 points, yes you read that right as Christmas came early for the team on their 4th name. Fifth this week, and at this point just looking for a weekly win as they are locked in at 8th place, was the Supah Ps with 112 points. Being bailed out by Russel Wilson's 45 burger and sixth place was NoRomo with 108. Black Dynamite comes in at 7th overall his team just under preformed this week. Eighth place with 100 points on the dot was the Jackals (or is it Jason's Jackals), Drew Brees just shitting the bed at the wrong time. Ninth place due to Andrew Luck's 0.36 points was FYW with 95. Coming in last for the week is Grahmatron with 94 points, no one knows what happened to the "Painter" - Kerwynn Williams and his 2 carries for 4 yards.


As we head into the last week of the season the Slippery Wizards extended their lead over Black Dynamite by 31 points - from 97 to 128, The Beach Bums and FYW swapped 4th and 5th place and the battle for the dress/beer bitch just went from 14 points to 41. There is also a $30 scratch ticket on the line between NoRomo and the Jackals with only 11 points separating the 2 teams (Knowing that Foley lost his super bowl match up in his other league he may beat a puppy if he loses this bet).                        



Here are the standings heading into the final week:
                                                        points behind
BLACK DYNAMITE                                     128
DIRTY MOON CRICKETS                          164
Beach Bums Na-Nu-Na-Nu                             244
FYW                                                                  265
NOROMO                                                        344
THE JACKALS                                                355
THE SUPAH PS                                               447
Voodoo That You Do                                       588
GRAHAMATRON                                         629

Other than the $75 for the weekly winners the overall prizes are
1st place $900
2nd place $450
3rd place $225
                          

Now normally this is where TMX calls the players on each winning and losing team but we tried a few and they are all out shopping for their wives, girlfriends, kids or mistresses (Sorry Arian didn't know you were at Tiffanies) so we called SANTA and let him know whats on each teams wish list:


Hey Santa whats up? This is TMX and I know we have been on and off the naughty list over the years, fucking IGGLES,  but this is a serious call. I just want you to know what each team is asking for this Christmas.

Grahamatron is looking for a running back to play a whole game and get over 10 points to help him out of the basement.
Voodoo That You Do is hoping for a new pair of sneakers since beer bitch is a whole lot of walking to and from the bar.
The Supah Ps is looking for a partner who would actually show up, pay attention to the league and make fantasy football fun again.
The Jackals are looking  for an ESPN insider subscription. He is in so many leagues and has so much action on Sundays this can only help. Plus his recent job change made him take a huge hit in the wallet.
NoRomo wanted me to let you know he wants a Christmas Miracle, then winked at me. Im assuming she is on the naughty list and works at Alex's.
FYW said he would just like a TE that catches passes and doesn't block.
Beach Bums Na-Nu-Na-Nu would like this to be turned into a keeper league. He doesn't want anyone else to own ODB EVER.
Dirty Moon Crickets wants to turn his 2 trick pony into a 3 ring circus. Anyone stepping up would help.
Black Dynamite would like you to pay off their Layaway at Kmart oh and if you could let Payton Manning find strength in his right arm they would appreciate it.
The Slippery Wizards would just like Gronk to play a solid 1st half of the game on Sunday.

I don't think that is too much to ask for from a bunch of grown men, Santa.

OH TMX, I will do my best for all you fools but it is Christmas time, why don't you guys call me in August before the draft I may be I can help you guys then.

OK thanks again Santa.


There you have it,  the last week of fantasy is upon us. The waiver wire and crazy pick ups will be happening tonight and we will be at Coops on Sunday to watch the games and have some questions answered:
Will the Slippery Wizards hold on to 1st
How will Black Dynamite, DMC, Beach Bums and FYW end up shaking out.
How bad does the Jackals want that $30 scratchie.
Who wears a dress and who gets the leagues beers at next season draft?


I hope you all have a very merry Christmas

Xmas week

So I didn't post yesterday. Its the holiday season, so open your heart and have some compassion. This is also a quick hitter 12 pack  since I got drinking and shopping to do.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. The new Hobbit film isn't as good as the other 2 but it is a good ending to the trilogy.
2. You win some and you lose some about $5000 worth.
3. The casino hustler is real.
4. Yes, he lives in a casino but Tooma is alive and kicking and making it do what it do.
5. Whats your percentage? As in what is the percentage of people you WOULD NOT FUCK? A friend of mine is rocking an 8%.
6. If you are ever in NJ you have to have a burger at The Tabor road Tavern. Best fucking burger ever! I believe Chrissy called it meat candy.
7. It is the 23rd and I still have not finished all my shopping. UGGGHH....more drinks I guess
8. Why does a simple hair cut make you feel so much better.
9. Brandon Weeden is still a bum.
10. I am sad that Rondo got traded for basically a bag of balls.
11. The MacPhails  no longer have cable.
12. I am pretty sure I contracted some sort of sickness at the casino.

This week I am spreading holiday cheer - so no things I hate right now but rather 5 things I am grateful for:
1. All my family and friends.
2. A roof over my head.
3. The ability to grow facial hair.
4. The fact that I can laugh at myself.
5. Obviously each and every person who stops by to read my useless rants.

Week 15 review

TMX here with the week 15 review!


Another wild week with top qbs like Stafford (12pts), Manning (15pts) and Rodgers (6pts!!) really let teams down! This season has been wild and it continues that way as we head to the final two weeks!! There were no changes in the standings for the first time in a while as Slippery Wizards is trying to hold off the wagon and Grahamatron is trying to climb out of the cellar, the only spot clinched is the 8th position, which Supah P's has locked down.
TMX exclusive interview with Grahamtrons "basement is cool,  I got a new sound system and Shawn Larry put in a banged up ac unit at cost, OH WAIT DID I TELL YOU?? FOUND AN OLD NINTENDO SYSTEM WITH THE POWER PAD ITS AWESOME! LITTLE BUMMED I COULDN'T FIND THE POWER GLOVE, I BET NOROMOS USED IT TO BEAT OFF WHEN HE VISITED".



Geez lets home Grahamtron doesn't pack it in the last two weeks now lets get to the weekly scores. First place this week was Slippery Wizards with 164 led by backup rb J.Hill and Matt Ryan. 2nd this week was Blackdynomite with 144 who was hurt by Manning but picked up waiver stud Harry "Frederick" Douglass and had Olsen and Bell do their regular thing. 
3rd this week was Beachbums who got huge games from Beckham and Bryant to put up 143, cursed Shady Mccoy could have done more and helped the Bums! 4th this week were The Jackals with 132. Brees is officially back for the Jackals and that is going to make the Jackals/Noromo bet fun to watch!! 5th this week was DMC with 110. Murray(prior to injury) and Brown carried the team as the two trick pony of Rodgers-Nelson really fell off. 6th this place was NoRomo with 103 Ravens d was a great trade and all about the Benjamins helped but the rbs killed the squad this week. 7th place with 100 was FYW FYW were led by Luck and Assiata but had no players getting 20pts!! 8th this week was Supah P's with 95. Supahs been dominating in the D category all season and Cards d led his team this week but in his never ending search for a wr grabbing Moncrief wasn't the move, put up a goose egg. 9th this week was Grahamatron with 83pts. Big Ben led the team with 19pts but no one else got over 11, not easy getting out of the basement with that production or with Mathews putting up a 0 and CHARLES Johnson outscoring CALVIN Johnson!! Last place this week with an amazing run of not breaking 100 once again was newly named Voodoo that you do (make me wanna shoop?) with 82 Seahawks D and Flacco led the team of none scoring over 20. 



Lets make some calls. First up for the winners we will call the pride of Boston College Matt Ryan.



Hey Matty Ice its your old friends TMX good week and pretty good season how's it going? " oh my TMX good to hear from you, we are trying to stay positive and make plays over here but I know Slippery Wizards management has been on us all season" That is true Matty tried trading you and even got Romo a guy who's thrown for 300yds once to play over you? " Oh TMX, thats not the half, at one point they threatened to kidnap my kid if i didn't put up a 40 burger? I dont even know what a 40 burger is? Is that the burger challenge at the eagle deli? I mean jeez?" WOW kidnapping kids? They take this serious over there, well anyway Matty good luck last two games. "thanks TMX and shout out to my boy Roddy White, Love me some Roddy White" Now we are going to do something different we usually call a player from the losing team but today we are calling a former player from that team Demarco Murray. Hey Demarco its TMX calling whats up? "OH man TMX calling again did we lose or win the week? Just trying to help my new team" Well you didn't win or lose we are calling to ask you about the injury? What exactly happened as there are rumors it was well uhmm VOODOO. " WAIT YOU TELLING ME I GOT A VOODOO CURSE??" D calm down calm down we are just checking "F*CKING VOODOO? You got people sacrificing chickens and voodoo cursing, this league is crazy, I'M OUT" Well cant say I blame him wow. TMX will be looking into this voodoo allegation and get to the bottom of it. Lets take a look at the overall standings



1. Slippery Wizards
2. Black Dynomite................................97pts
3. DMC...............................................177pts
4.FYW................................................227pts
5. BeachBums.....................................230pts
6. NoRomos........................................319pts
7. Jackals............................................321pts
8. Supah P's.........................................425pts
9. Voodoothatyoudo..............................568pts
10. Grahamatron..................................582pts

   The last two games are big. We've seen all year that one bad week can drop a team so that is all it will take for teams to slide in or out of the money. The race for the basement is as hot as its been all season and the side bet between NoRomo vs Jackals is separated by only 2 points currently. There will be a rush to the waiver as Murray injury is still murky. The end of the season Commish bday/ last game party is still on and we are taking calls for where the TMX sponsored event will take place. (Twinnies is OUT - Sorry Jeffrey) Good luck in week 16 and as always if you got news TMX will report it we are a voodoo free operation.

                                                                (TMX Mobile travels)

Ho ho holidays

I hope that everyone is enjoying their holiday season. Hopefully, you are visiting family, shopping for Christmas gifts and Hanukkah(Or is it Chanukah)  presents.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Putting bunk beds together is not all that hard.
2. Have you ever seen Jeffrey on 9? When Jeffrey has been on 9 did he kidnap you and take you to Twinnies? Didn't think so.
3. Rio is hosting a holiday party on January 10th. Get ready!
4. Is anyone as excited as I am about the Hobbit this Friday? Does anyone want to go to Wahlburgers and catch the movie? Friday night date night?
5. I think buffalo chicken pizza is either hit or miss but when its good its so good.
6. Guess you cant bring your own beers into the casino? Or snap chat for that matter.
7. Nothing worse than plugging in your phone and it doesn't charge.
8. Ugly sweaters were fun when they weren't supposed to be ugly. Now that they make ugly sweaters on purpose - lame!
9. Straight off the boat Irish kill the Indian food.
10. If you go to the mall to shop stop walking around like a fucking zombie.
11. Buffalo Wild Wings at the South Shore plaza is small.
12. I took off next Monday to finish off my xmas shopping. Anyone want to do some day drunking (and maybe shop)?
13. It is a sad day when you can still get good Sox Pax for opening day.
14. Is it laziness if you don't have time to get a haircut?
15. Cracker Barrel both the cheese and the restaurant are good.
16. I would appreciate if someone would stop stealing my beard comb!

Bonus round this is what I hate at this moment:
1. Chicken littles - people who act like the sky is falling over every single thing in the world.
2. Places that put their nasty lemons in my water. Fuck your nasty lemons.
3. Ladies doing their make up while driving in traffic. Move it or lose it sister.
4. Being in between pants sizes - really 37 is not a pant size?
5. You can order the same coffee at 14 different Dunkin Donuts and you get 14 different versions of a regular coffee. WHAT THE FUCK MAN!

TMX WEEK 14 REVIEW

Week 14 is in the books and TMX is here for your weekly recap!! 


There are three weeks left and the end of season party is still on just looking for a location hope everyone can make it ( Supahs take that week off from protesting). The right plays need to made these final three weeks as the races are as close as they have ever been, though with bad news to report Grahamatron is officially eliminated from winning the league down 500 with 3 weeks left its a mathamatical impossible hill to climb.
 DMC and NoRomo continue to make a climb to the money with DMC the odds on favorite to win the league based on his top QB, RB, WR combo. 

Lets get to the week 14 scores! This weeks winner was DMC  with a monster 195 week that include getting ZERO points out of the tight end spot. Looks like we have another wagon on our  hands as Rodgers, Murray and Jordy were all over 35 this week. Second this week was FYW with 157. FYW was led by newly acquired wr VJax and the Luck-TY combo. FYW continues to hang around the money despite using blocking tight end Witten as a starter. Third this week was red hot NoRomo with 155. Russell, Unicorn and CJ of the running Broncos led the charge this week. EDITORS NOTE: TMX has learned there is a side bet betwen NoRomo and The Jackals as to who finishes higher, we will monitor this as needed. Fourth this week was Slippery Wizards  with 153 who were saved on Monday night by Julio Jones the man they offered up in trades right up to the deadline. 5th place this week was Black Dynomite with 142, RB force Bell and Charles led the way and an off week by Manning may have cost them the week. TWO POINTS PEYTON?? 6th place this week was The Jackals with 116 led by Edelman, gonna be a dogfight  with NoRomo for that bet if the team doesn't turn it on. 7th this week was Grahamatron with 112 who got a big week from BigBen and Mega is BACK and may get Grahamatron out of the basement if Jimmy Graham comes alive in the tight basement race. 8th place this week with 107 was Beachbums. Aj Green carried the Bums but they played Julius Thomas for the second week in a row when Thomas didnt see the field. Tmx is all about sending players messages but not this late in the season!! 9th place this week was Supah P with 103. Supah is being led by Stafford who's finally playing like the high pick he was and the vikes D. Last place again this week was Itakecareofmykidz with 75 led by suprise rb starter James Stewart.

                                      (RELAX MIKE VICK NOT THAT KIND OF A DOG FIGHT)

 Lets make some quick calls. First up for the winners lets call Jordy Nelson. Hey Jordy its TMX hows it going? " oh wow TMX you calling me or you looking for Aaron?? What an honor, happy to be able to contribute to my team, glad i'm getting lead wr respect finally by DMC and the pack"  OOPS uhm Jordy your second fiddle on your team ,DMC has the top wr in a trade rape cuz he felt he needed help at that spot? " oh man, you telling me i'm not the top wr on this team and get no respect in the league as one? this stinks! oh well i'm gonna go run some routes and try and get top billing one of these days!!" Thats what makes you good Jordy!! Good luck next three weeks and congrats on a great season. 
Up next another call to a member of Itakecareofmykidz lets call rookie Sammy Watkins. Hi Sammy it TMX you heard of us?? " TMX you're damn straight I heard of you, love your stuff. I got over 100yards last week wish I could of scored but glad to help the team I know we need all the help we can get and they traded Murray for me so I'm trying to do my best" UHM about that S.Wat ( swat haha what a nickname) you were on the bench this week buddy. " wait what?? they are benching me over there? You for reals? YOU 100 ON THAT SHIT? We tanking for the top draft spot or something, man SWat is heated. f-this and f-that CLICK. Wow Tmx hung up on but we will take that kid just wants to play and win. Lets take a look at how the standings are shaping up


1. Slippery Wizards
2. Black Dynomite.................................77pts
3. DMC................................................123pts
4. FYW................................................163pts
5. Beach Bums......................................208pts
6. NoRomo............................................258pts
7. Jackals..............................................289pts
8. Supah Ps...........................................356pts
9. Itakecareofmykidz...............................487pts
10. Grahamatron....................................500pts

  DMC coming off 195 point outburst is in the money and looking to climb as Beachbums dropped out of the money to 5th and FYM is on the doorstep at 4. NoRomo jumped the Jackals and now possibly has his sights set on Beachbums!! Supah is looking to be the first one to clinch a spot as hes locking down the 8th spot!!! The battle for the basement is alive and well as Grahamatron is getting Mega back and BigBen while Itakecareofmykidz is having issues finding the right starters. The last three weeks will decide if Slippery Wizards can hold off the Wagon and the rest of the crew that are gaining fast it should be fun. TMX is taking any and all suggestions as to where the league should watch the last weeks action. TMX is attempting to contact IGGLES to see if his house is available, NOROMO GET THE KEG, due stay tuned. GOOD LUCK in week 15 hope for a healthy week with all the right players starting. TMX OUT!

Mucho Freeyo

You ever get a phone call from someone you really don't want to talk too? I mean like the the thought of talking to that person will drive you mentally insane?  Oh me neither, then.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Guess anyone can just pass out at a black jack table? Right Chrissy?
2. Jeffrey hangs out a lot at the bird, and by bird I mean the Eagles in Weymouth.
3. Pecan pie is the shit.
4. In case you were wondering, only 19 more days to shop for my birthday.
5. Anyone available next weekend, for a trip to the Pochonos?
6. How come no one wants to go to the Foo Fighters next year at Fenway? Or the Bosstones hometown throw down.
7.  It pains me to see Paul Pierce in any uniform but a Celtics uniform.
8. Who is up for some Christmas shopping*? * by shopping I mean going to the mall and getting bombed while picking up things here and there.
9. When did Kathryn Tappen start doing football games for NBC?
10. Hey people bitching that its 20 degrees out today, it is FUCKING DECEMBER!
11. Winter hats instantly become 100% cooler with a pompom.
12. I think coin star is a scam.
13. If you are meeting up for some lunch and a few drinks please don't ever refer to it as a luncheon unless you are Paddy Calnan. Perhaps another LINGJING?
14. Glad to see Jay Foley and Chazzy Ferlauto are doing well, work always seems to bring lasting friendships. I guess Broderick got caught up and couldn't attend.
15. It is rather sad that we did not have our annual hockey game for the 1st time this year, maybe we can start it up again next year. Or maybe have it in the summer?
16. Rumor has it a few people went out and tried the breakfast at Kristins in Braintree. Hope they enjoyed it as much as I do.

Sorry I have to run but work is a sonofabitch right now.

This is what I am hating and  hating on:
1  Lazy people.
2. Clothing that doesn't fit.
3. Feeling rushed.
4. People who only call you when they want something.
5. I dont give a fuck about the college football playoff system.

Hope that everyone has a nice week. I am always available for Christmas drinks.

TMX week 13 review

TMX is here with your week 13 fantasy review!!! (speaking of reviews did you see the wing review last week on Drunknothings? Chrissy straight killing it!). 



This week just about everyone in the league gained ground as the Slippery Wizards got Romoed. There are four weeks left in the season and the races are as tight as they have been all year and TMX couldnt be more excited!! 
Lets get to the week 13 results. First this week was NoRomo with 196pts! Almost the first team to break the 200pt mark NoRomo was led by the Anderson, Unicorn and 40 burgers from Mason and Rams d. 2nd this week is the revamped two trick pony DMC with 162.  
New comers Brown and Murray along with Rodgers carried the club on a Jordy semi-off week. 3rd this week and starting to peek out the cellar window is Grahamatron with 145. Graham didn't show up this week for Grahamatron but Mega did as did Big Ben!! 4th place this week went to Supah P with 139. Vikes did came out of nowhere and Stafford finally played like he is suppose to. 5th this week was The Jackals with 134. Brees is BACK . 6th this week was Black Dynomite 127 mostly due to an off week from Manning and the wrs but Bell continues to put up 40 burgers. 7th this week was FYW with 116 Luck carried the squad as Forte had and off week and Ellington (traids) got injured. 8th this week was Beachbums with 111. Shady had a great game and it must be noted that kicker Cody Parker followed a 19pt week with a 15pt week!! Starting an injured Julius Thomas seemed like an odd play this late in the season but I'm sure Bums were sending a message to someone!! 9th this week with 111 was Slippery Wizards Julio Jones carried the club as the benchmob had 177 for Slippery wizards this week. 10th place this week was Itakecareofmykids with 80, bad week all around for them with only 2 players in double digits. 




Lets make some calls. First up we with try another conference call to Denard Robinson, Anquan Bolden and Sammy Watkins!! This thing working?? Guys you there its TMX?!! " yup, yeah, Yup we are all here. Whats going on Tmx did we all win players of the week or something??" Well not quite guys you were actually all traded for Demarco Murray and Martavis Bryant just wondering how you feel about getting 11 total points and Murray gettin 20?? " oh come on TMX look, this is Anquan you're talking too i've only gotten 20 pts ONCE all season why am i even in this trade!! I'm out, deuces TMX!!" Later Anquan hey you guys still there? Denard??? Sammy?? " Tmx we are still here but come on we are rookies who knows what your gonna get from a week to week, shoot i'm hurt and denard is a former qb?? How about we asked to get traded back??" Well guys cant do that but lets shoot for getting more than 11pts out of THREE guys this week huh? Itakecareofmykids needs that? " Cool, later TMX, yeah Later" TMX still shaking its head at that trade but one week doesn't make a trade but it can sometimes bring you a step closer to the basement. Next up we call Tre Mason who along with the rams d  had a huge week for NoRomo. Hey Tre its TMX whats good? " oh man TMX I've been reading you for years so honored" Thanks what a great week you mind if we call you De La Tre? Tre, Myself and I? Get it cuz your dad was in De La Soul?? haaaa " Tmx come on thats corny!! Anyway, I'm trying to build on this last week and bring NoRomo in the money, shout out to my D!! Rams D!! See you in the money NoRomo!!" Wow very confident Tre Mason!! Good luck



Here's a look at the standing with 4 to play


1. Slippery Wizards
2. Black Dynomite ...........................66pts
3  Beach Bums................................162pts
4. DMC...........................................165pts
5. FYM............................................167pts
6. Jackals........................................253pts
7. Noromo.......................................260pts
8. Supah Ps.....................................306pts
9. Itakecareofmykids.........................409pts
10. Grahamatron..............................459pts


             

This is the tightest the races from top to bottom have been in a long time!! 5 points separate 3 teams from the money and 50 from the bottom!! NoRomo and DMC continue to make there push to the top and Beachbums, and Black Dynomite missed a great chance to claim the top spot. These last four weeks should be exciting and the trade deadline is just about here to make your moves!! Hope we are injury free this week and everyone starts the right guys!! Good luck in week 14. TMX out.


There are rumors that TMX may be planning a year end league wide gathering on December 28th if the races stay this tight.

December is here

Its the 1st day of December and also Cyber Monday. Christmas shopping for only 24 more days.


This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Chrissy didn't know wine wasn't cheap at a restaurant.
2. Fried Turkeys are all the rage this year.
3. So far only 9 guys say they want to play hockey, so fucking lame.
So far this is who says they are playing:
Mike
Mario
Calnan
Derek
Orett
Jaydisco
Welch
Watchdog 
 
Barrett will come late(12:30)
Los says he is in - I cant trust that guy
Foley is in as long as he gets a baby sitter

Ryan and Tommy both asked what time (even though it was on the text)

4. How come every time I invite Calnan out he never comes out and always has an excuse?
5. Anyone seen Smiddy and my $25?
6. People are all up in arms over these Red Sox signings and none being Lester. At least they are spending money.
7. No one hates being out with Drunk Derek and Wasted Chrissy than Katie K!
8. Cheifdude has started to live his life a little more, and is going to the gym twice a week.
9. Nothing good happens at the Ocean Kai. NOTHING!
10. A good bartender can make or break your night.
11. I love banging out all my shopping.
12. Some days you just do not want to get your ass off the couch.
13. Is there a point that your hair stops growing?
14. Congrats to Danny and his gf on their second baby on the way.
15. Who is watching that show Jane the Virgin? I mean really?
16. I already knew that Comcast/Xfinity sucks but my cable was out on Friday night, all I had was fucking HGTV. They did a "reset" to my box and it would work for 1/2 hour. SUCK IT COMCAST!

This is what I hate right now -
1. Still hate how everyone says yes to do things and then always bails.
2. People who bitch about it being 60 degrees out in December.
3. Dunkin Donuts large iced coffee now being $3.00 - don't think I haven't noticed.
4. Rude  people who cut in line.
5. Having a broken windshield wiper, not busted but just not cleaning the whole window.

My birthday is only 17 days away... start shopping!

Also anyone interested in going to the Kentucky Derby, 1st weekend in May?

Week 12

TMX here with your week 12 abbreviated turkey week wrap up!! Happy Thanksgiving from the TMX family.


Short week with 3 games going on Thursday so lets get right to it. This weeks winner was Slippery Wizards with 189 pts Bills D coming through with 32 points on Monday night leading the way. 2nd place was Beach Bums as they continue to roll with 179.  The balanced bums (pun intended) had 5 players in the 20s and even their kicker put up 19 gonna be tough to deny them of the top spot. 3rd place was No Romo with 144 led by dash and smash rb duo that put up 67pts. Noromo is probably hoping there are 10 more weeks instead of 5 with the way his team is coming on. 4th place was Black Dynomite with 141 led by the usual suspects Manning and whatever rbs the wagon rolls out. Dynomite is happy that the bye are done and he can flex all his rb muscle. 5th place was FYW with 130pts, Fyw had a rare off week by Luck but Forte and Hilton continued to put up numbers. 6th place this week was Grahamatron with 126 Chargers D, Mathews and even a rare good game by Graham helped the squad this week. 7th place this week were The Jackals with 121. Looks like Brees is back as he put up a 40 burger. 8th place with 113 were Supah P's. Cards D and Jennings coming back help the Supahs who are suddenly in a battle to stay out of the bottom. 9th place this week was DMC with 106 a rare off week by the two trick pony they were helped out big time by Boldin ( yes he's still in the league) and last place this week was Pleasure Palace aka I take care of my kidz? with 99pts. The only team not getting a 100 responded by trading the top rb for D. Robinson, Boldin and S. Watkins. We shall see how this pans out. Dmc acquired Watkins and Rivera for the black Unicorn from Noromo so the trades are all over and helping teams. The deadline is quickly approaching. TMX regrets  not making the calls this week due to the holidays. Lets take a look at the standings.

1. Slippery Wizards
2. Black Dynomite........................82pts
3. Beach Bums.............................162pts
4. FYW.........................................173pts
5. Dmc..........................................216pts
6. Jackals.......................................276pts
7  Supahs........................................334pts
8. Noromo.........................................346pts
9. Itakecareofmykidz...........................378pts
10. Grahamatrons...............................494pts



        .
The standings are tightening up at the bottom and top. Biggest mover this week was Beach Bums who moved up from 5 to 3 and in the money.  NoRomo is out of the beer bitch spot and that was taken over by Itakecareofmykidz. FYW and Dmc dropped a spot and Jackals and Supah are now trying to get distance from the bottom!! TRAIDS are happening keep your head on a swivel and the waiver wire is helping teams have huge weeks. TMX wishing everyone a safe, happy and injury free Thanksgiving. Handful of weeks left and 3 games tomorrow so get your teams ready the last few weeks I'm sure will make or break seasons. TMX out.

Crows Landing


Although I am just learning about this new hot spot in Hingham, apparently Derek & Katie meet up with Jeffrey,  Sarah & Julian weekly here.  Thanks for the heads up and invite guys.  Looking at the menu their thing is to cook healthier by baking or grilling everything.  No deep frying at all. Since everyone is now #teamsalad its a good time for this business model.  Everything on the menu sounded delicious but I went for the $0.25 wing special on Tuesdays. Since this place is small you can check out your neighbors meals and I gotta say the burgers looked really good.  I got 40 wings and a side of fries.  Now I have tried baking fries before and they suck but whatever they do here they came out delicious. Wings were cooked perfect.  And although they only have one buffalo sauce it was quite tasty.  Good flavor and if it just wasn't so out of the way for me, I would go to this place a lot  more.  A solid find and a highly recommended place to eat.

See Smiddy, that's how a restaurant review is done!

Turkey Lurkey

We are jumping right into it this week because its fucking 65 degrees out and 100% humidity and work is busy as fuck!

This is what I learned this weekend (Quick 12 pack):
1. Levis are $100? They are Levis, I mean what next Wranglers?
2. Chrissy is way more into wrestling than he lets on. I mean who practices wrestling moves on my dogs while painting their face like the Ultimate Warrior?
3. Trying to get a head count for the Whitley Classic hockey game. Who is in? Its December 6th at 12:00 noon. If we cant get  enough guys then we wont do it.
4. Dave and Doe are supposed to move back to Boston by the end of next year, 2015. Is there a pool on whether that happens or not?
5. Jeffrey killed $.25 wings last Tuesday and hes doing it again this week.
6. Who is in for the planning on Rios bachelor party? I am hearing Kentucky Derby maybe?
7. People are pumped for Garth Brooks at the Garden in January.
8. Its funny how everyone was badmouthing the Pats after going 2-2 and now they are ball sucking them.
9. Never ceases to amaze me when people are rude when they want things. Uhm, you get how this works right?
10. Has anyone had the Guinness Blonde yet?
11. The older I get the less patience I have for traffic.
12. Mother fuckers telling me they are done with Christmas shopping already, MAKE ME SICK!

  Bonus Round:
This is what I am hating right now:
1. People with their Christmas trees up already. Lets eat turkey first.
2. People who don't have any manners. Would it hurt you to say please and thank you?
3. Getting a headache right behind your eye ball.
4. Warm beers, served in a bar.
5. People who don't answer their phones but text you right back. Obviously I am calling for a reason. If I wanted to text I would.

Have a great Turkey day!

Week 11 in the books...

Week 11 is in the books and there are only 6 more weeks left in this fast moving fantasy season. Tmx is here to report!!

 First lets get the many injuries out of the way that effected the scores, Ball, Bradshaw, Sanders ( after he posted a nice 100yd game) J. Thomas, Jordan Reed (real shock) Fitzy, and Dwayne Allen were among the notable injuries that hurt teams this week. The races are as tight as they've been all year at the bottom (Grahamatron not included- sorry) and at the top.

 Lets take a look at  how the week played out. First place and 4 time weekly winner Black Dynamite put up a huge 182 pt week which could have been a 200 burger if Manning didnt have an off week. RBs Bell and Charles (trade rape) both put up over 35 points and the wagon is in full gear. 2nd this week with all the moving and shaking hes done is DMC with 154 the two trick pony led the way but now its looking to become a 3 ring circus with newly acquired Jeffery and Blue putting up number!! 3rd place this week was NoRomo with 149 Tmx was pulling for the kid to pull it out but the rookie wideouts couldn't carry him as Benjamin pulled his weight and Evans had a MONSTER game with 46pts. 4th place was the suddenly struggling Slippery Wizards with 145 no one on the team could get over 24pts. 5th place this week was FYW with 129 who got a rare bad week from Luck but who found a new tight end possibly in Feener who had a career game! 6th place this week was Beach Bums with 122. Bums were hit hard by injuries and the Patriots deciding to be a running team. New Bum AJ Green proved his worth and Sanders pitched in (though i doubt he remembers the 23 points he put up) 7th place this week was Jackals with 91, Brown and Maclin had ok games for the usual studs but injury to Bradshaw and once again refusing to address the tight end issue hurt the Jackals. TMX here to help - GET A TIGHT END. 8TH place this week was Grahamatron with 91. Waiver add Jordan Mathews led the team but Graham or Tron didnt help TOTALING only 12pts. May wanna take them off the team name!! 9th place was Supah P's with 77. We tried to contact Supah but he was at an "early thanksgiving party" high class dojo type stuff no doubt. The Supah's were hit with a "STAFFinfection" only Beastmode put up good numbers he's immune. Last place this week was Pleasure Palace with a new season low 65pts who suffered from an Allen injury as well as team mvp Murray on a bye. Pp's are not feeling the heat from Noromo for the early battle for beer bitch. Let's make some calls. First up old friend Peyton Manning of Black Dynamite.


  Hey Peyton its TMX whats good? " oh shucks TMX why you calling I stunk today, i'm not gonna make excuses but I had all my guys get hurt" Well Peyton that kinda sounds like an excuse? But anyway your team won the week but coulda broke the 200 pt barrier. " GODDAMMIT TMX GODDAMMIT you know I love records you're telling me I cost the team a record?? THIS IS CHICKENPOOP" click. Wow chicken poop and a hang up?
 First time in TMX history that we've seen Peyton this mad? Watch out looks like he's looking to go off this week, loves records! Lets call a member of the Pleasure Palace. Hey Dwayne Allen its TMX a fantasy (is life) reporter calling to ask what happened out there you put up a 0 for Pleasure Palace this week? " YO TMX I read you guys every week love your stuff about Luck he is a know it all you got that right but  he's the best, wait what team am I on in your league?" Oh its called Pleasure Palace. "what the fuck! like that's a real name? Like a pleasure palace? That a barbie playhouse or some shit? No seriously whats a pleasure palace?" D we dont make up the names I'm not quite sure TMX is calling to talk about the 0 you put up? " Listen Tmx the issue here is a team named after either a brothel, a barbie playhouse or some freak gay shit how can you expect me to take that seriously?? Lucky he got a zero. Whens the trade deadline in your league?" Wow really upset over the team name huh? " yeah man I got go get treatment on my ankle but thats some shit, later TMX keep reporting" Well there you have it? Lets check the standings

1. Slippery Wizards...........................
2. Black Dynomite...............................35pts
3. FYW...............................................114pts
4. DMC................................................134pts
5. BeachBums.......................................152pts
6. Jackals..............................................208pts
7. Supah P's...........................................258pts
8. Pleasure Palace....................................288pts
9. NoRomo...............................................300pts
10. Grahamatron.......................................431pts

   
Black Dynamite predicted he'd win the whole thing and that the Slippery Wizards would "fold like a house of cards" and now the "wagon" is rolling and only 35pts from the top!!  3-5 has been a battle all season and continues to be with DMC and Beachbums furiously chasing down FYW. Jackals and Supah P's are trying to stay in the middle of the pack while NoRomo was the biggest mover making up 84 points on the 8th place spot!! There are only 6 weeks left and nothing is even close to being settled. Like this week any team is capable of making  up 80 plus points. Lets hope everyone stays healthy and we have a competitive next 6 weeks. The waiver wire has helped teamed all week so i'm sure it will this week with the new toys like Jonas out there. Traids  happen so be careful before you leap. As always if you got breaking news send it to TMX. TMX out.

I love Turkey day

I love me some turkey day. I live for sitting my fat ass on the couch, fucking up some turkey, drinking my face off and watching football.

This is what I learned this week:
1. People are pissed, even though they love it, about the Dunkin Donut croissant donut being $2.49 (we haven't even had a review from Chrissy yet).
2. Calnan may or may not make it to the strip club after the annual street hockey game this year, just depends on if his lady friend has plans for him or not.
3. I have been playing angry birds transformers and I kinda like it.
4. It is totally normal to wake up and decide to go to Georgia for a day.
5. Hey Rio, they fuck ya in the drive through. Or at the car dealership.
6. Kkaties in Marshfield is super clean, and they have Buffalo tots. Let that sink in!
7. Beef jerky is totally under rated.
8. Rain is one thing but an ice cold rain is a whole other level of miserable.
9. Anyone know any good chiropractors on the South shore? My backs killing me.
10. We all have that one friend who wont shut up right? If you don't then you must be that friend.
11. I love the term "You da real MVP".
12. I don't care who knows it. That Taylor Swift song Shake it off, is my jam!!
13. Baked Ziti, a poor mans lasagna, is fucking great.
14. I am officially 70% gray and 29% non gray - you figure it out(plus Im not good with maths).
15. What is everyone doing Turkey Eve and Thanksgiving night? Will Flounder be back in Mass or will he be kicking at a bar in NC?
16. Talking at work, do people still celebrate New Years eve?
17. Sweet potatoes make your hair grow faster.
18. How are we not going to Foxwoods for this old school Hip hop Show, on November 29th?
  • Public Enemy
  • MC Lyte
  • Rakim
  • Big Daddy Kane
  • EPMD
  • Special ED
  • Black Sheep
  • Slick Rick
19. Guess when people win pools they don't tip anymore? Not that this is the reason why I run a pool but isn't that what you do?
20. ...and I still hate Sam Adams beers.


This is what I hate right now:
1. Everyone pushing pumpkin, I hate pumpin and I hate people who push it even more.
2. Paying for a bad meal. Its one thing if food sucks another when you have to pay for it.
3. People who ask for advice and then do the exact opposite.
4. The vanilla almond milk that Dunks uses in their ice coffee, that floats around like you are drinking spoiled milk and gives me the willies.
5. People who tailgate you like a mother fucker and hit their steering wheel and shit. Hey fuck you!
