Week 10 review

TMX here with the week 10 recap!

With 7 weeks left the cream is starting to rise to the top and the beer bitch and dress race is on!! Lets check out the scores. First place this week with 162 was DMC. The TMX favorite has finally got it all together somehow with Big Ben in and out of the lineup. Palmer picked up the slack for Ben and number one pick AP ran wild for over 200 yards! DMC left 117 pts on the bench and that has to be addressed if they want to stay on the top. No room for the bench mob to explode with teams gunning for him now. Second place this week was Beach Bums with 148. Beach bums were led by the non noodle arm Manning and the Bryant in Pittsburgh that is actually a legit weapon. Beach Bums also made a huge play on the waivers getting Pitts D to put up 26. Going into Monday night action with AJ and Hill he almost seemed assured a win but both put up weak efforts and Beach bums landed on its face however they are still in striking distance of the top as of week 10 so its not all bad. Third place this week was Slippery Wizards with 133. Wizards are riding their waiver guys Carr and West and trying to get away from the cellar they spent so much of the season in. Wizards need to find a defense and probably admit they got a lemon in the Diggs for Gore deal.
Fourth place this week was Jaybirds with 131.  Bye week blues led to Jaybirds starting Taylor and no Julio. Brown continued to tear the league up with another huge week. Jaybirds are now through the byes and ready to try and climb back to the top. Making the right plays or pulling of a trade that allows them to set it and forget it is gonna be crucial. 5th place this week was Supah P's with 116. Supah went to the wire and picked up and played Flacco who led the team but bad weeks from CJ1K and Eifert killed any chance of a big week. Freeman coming back off the bye should get Supah back on track as he is fighting to separate himself from the cellar chasers. 6th place this week was Creepshots with 109. Gronk and Mr TD a game Decker led the team but newly acquired Cobb and revenge gamer Vereen hurt the squad. Creepshots are within reach of the top and will need everyone to step up to catch the top two.

7th place this week was Black dynamite with 108. BD was led by Rodgers but got little help from the wr corp that has carried him as Crabtree and Garcon totaled 9 points. Its gonna be a tough climb back up for BD if the wr don't help out the hurting rb situation with only Miller there to carry the load but i'm sure they will work something out.  8th place this week was Skza's Squad with 93 points. Amazing week for Skza with 93 points despite getting MINUS 6 for Noodle Arm Manning. You read that right!!  Langford led the way for the guys on the team that scored positive points  and with the trade of the week BREES AND JENNINGS FOR NOODLE ARM AND BLOUNT Skza looks ready to get some separation from the bottom with that fleecing ( FYI - TMX is investigating the collusion charge made by Slippery Wizards who offered Ryan and Lynch for the same players.)  9th place this week was Charlie's Angels with 86. Angels were  hurt again with another big game on the bench! Ebron, Sanders and top kicker Mcmanus killed the team with a combined FIVE points scored! Charlies's took a big step down and is now moving closer to the lower half. They will obviously need to play the right guys and can easily get back to the top half and make a move for the money. Last place this week was Equalizers. Brees the normal leader put up a bad week 15pts and was immediately TRAIDED. Crowell and Jones put up zeros and Dez only had 7! Cooks led all scorers with 25. Equalizers are now in last and looking for help in a lot of areas. They are gonna need big weeks from Dalton, Dez and Blount to climb out of the basement or make another trade?? Seem to be doing well in that department.

Lets make some calls.

First up starting running back for Equalizers Alfred Blue. Hey Alf its TMX whats going on? "TMX why you guys calling me? This Vince? Wilfolk you pranking me again? No way TMX is calling me i'm basically fantasy irrelevant" No NO  come on Alf don't be so hard on yourself we know you've had one good game all year and are struggling but you were picked up on waivers OVER Darren McFadden " haha really man that team must not be doing well I mean since I took over I've only got 12 total points why would I be starting? i'm an rb 12 in my own rankings? Well if they start me i'm gonna try and break a couple runs this week ok!! " Wow sounds good!! Well theres something we don't get that often. Good luck Equalizers and you can thank TMX for the motivation!!
 Up next Big Ben for team DMC. Hey old friend its TMX whats good? " oh man nothing good just eating couple Primanti brothers sandwiches and trying to heal up for the stretch week" Woah those are huge sandwiches you say a couple? " Yeah come on TMX don't fat shame me, i'm on the bye this week and was resting up last week then I had to come in off the bench and help my team!!" Yeah about that almost burnt DMC with that move why were you second string if you could play and play well? " Yeah I know right put up 38pts who knew? Well i'll be healthy after the bye and ready to go! and Antonio you eating those fries? TMX we are eating I don't wanna be rude but its lunch time I'll talk to you after the bye, k? " Uhhm ok Ben, it is 9:30 am, enjoy your "lunch"! Big appetite apparently equals big numbers!! Here are the current standings.

1. DMC
2. Jaybird.....................................18pts
3. Creepshots.................................72
4. Black Dynomite............................91
5. Beach Bums.................................121
6. Charlie's Angels..............................158
7. Supah P's........................................190
8. Slippery Wizards...............................200
9. Skza's Squad.....................................203
10. Equalizers........................................280

     DMC took over the top spot jumping past the bye week blues of Jaybirds. Creepshots and Black Dynomite slipped back a little and Charlies and Beach Bums flipped spots and are still within striking distance with 7 to go. The bottom half is tight with the Equalizers making moves with Skza's Squad to try and get away from the bottom. The waiver and trades have made a huge difference in a lot of teams so this crazy year may come down to a trade or wire pick up so don't be shy. Good luck in week 11. TMX out.

6. Danny Douglas is killing the snap game.
7.  The onion rings are back at Grumpy Whites and they aren't the same.
8. Ronda Rousey how do you bounce back? Calnan wants next.
9. Guys talking about hunting is probably one of the worst conversation that go on around your immediate area.
10. I officially do not like cider. It kind of ruins apple pie.
11. Chiefdude says the blue berry donuts at Kanes will change your life.
12. I am amazed at how cheap televisions have become.
13. Crazy shit in France. Fucking terrorist.
14. Is $250 a lot to remove a tree?
15. Nothing worse than plans falling through and you were so excited for them.
16. Coach K is branching out into hoops now. All this coaching, I hope Hull has the $$ to keep him.

That is all I have today.

TMX week 9 review

TMX week 9 review is here. 
The back half of the season is upon us and things are tightening up at the top with this being the closest this late in the season in ADSL history!! ( TMX stats with another gem) Lets get right to the recap. First place this week were Slippery Wizards with 165. The cellar dwelling Slippery Wizards were able to get big weeks from waiver pickups Carr and Williams who combined for 71pts. Another wire helper Giants d put up 20 with a late garbage td. Slippery Wizards trying to avoid first to worst season is in a dogfight and barely climbed out of the basement with the winning week. 2nd place was Skza's Squad with 155. Skza's is led by Noodle Arm Peyton Manning and still had all but one player in double digits this week!! He gets a quality qb he could be dangerous over the last half. 3rd place was "Mr nobody will trade with me" Jaybirds with 153. Antonio Brown put up 47 with a whopping 284yds rec!! The Jaybirds once again left over 100pts on the bench and continue to try and play the perfect lineup! 4th this week was Creepshots with 147. Led by Newtons 39, Miller 29, and Murray 25 the Creepshots thanked miller by trading him to Black Dynomite for Cobb. A trade that may push him to the top and may also bring the team directly behind him to the top as well!! 5th place this week was DMC with 145. DMC put up 145 with playing two guys who scored 0!! DMC was TMX preseason favorite to win it all and the depth and managing will be tested as Big Ben is down again (Can't figure out if it is a Hammy Dance or a Voodoo Doll). 6th place this week was Supah P's with 145. Supah got over 20 out of Eifert, Hurns and Evans. Usually a big trader Supah P's has been quiet on the trade front this year with many calling them the Silent P's. 7th place this week with 134 was Black dynamite. Rodgers and Crabtree put up a combined 76 but the rbs totaled a measly 8pts! BD addressed that by trading for Miller and should be pushed toward the top. 8th place this week were the Equalizers with 125. Redhot Brees continues to drop 40 burgers on everyone and Dez got back with 23. Gonna be a fight for that dress but Brees is ready!! 9th place this week was Charlie's Angels with 106.  Off weeks by Martin and Brady  hurt the Angels but Watkins 31 on the bench may have hurt more. Brady should be able to keep the team near the top but the others have to step up or maybe a trade to spice things up could help. Last place this week and the only team that didn't reach 100 was Beach Bums with 73. Rough week started on Thursday and continued right through the weekend. Only two guys got double digits for the beach bums this week and benched Frank Gore actually scored more than every starter! Tough week all around but the Beach Bums have been know to bounce back lets see what they got especially now that the most wanted qb Andrew Luck is now dealing with 2-6 week recovery!!
                                                           ( ^ Beach Asses ^)
 Lets make a couple quick calls. First up from the Slippery Wizards old friend Matty Ryan. Hey Matty Ice its TMX whats good? " oh man its all good man finally got a win, I carried the team to victory last year and I hope to do it again! Dropped my usual 20pts just grinding out here helping the team! Yahoo feels good to be back on top! " Uhhm Matty you actually got benched and a lot of Slippery's owners blame you for the dismal season? Derek Carr is the starter? " Yeah I mean I threw a lot to Julio found some other guys, over 300  yards just a great team win, Julio pass the apple juice we celebrating tonight!' MATTY MATTY ARE YOU LISTENING? YOU WERE BENCHED" Whoa TMX was you yelling? You guys changed? Look I went to a Jesuit college I stay away from negativity. Jeez we are coming off a huge win and you're yelling. I'm going to have to let you go. Click." Well ok guess Matty Ice is slightly out of touch. Wowzers. Lets give a call to Beach Bums underperforming star Jeremy Hill. Hey Jhill its TMX whats going on? " Nothing TMX just doing my thing, trying to get points for my team" Yeah about that J you are having a rough season haven't reached 100 yet? What the deal? "Look i'm not getting into but its that Gingers team and I can only hope they realize winters coming and we need to pound the rock. I'm not gonna say much more but I was on a championship team last  year and I'm hoping to do the same! Feel me TMX? I'm out!!  Well he sounds motivated but motivation aint the only thing ya need good luck JHill. Lets get a look at the standings
1. Jaybirds
2. DMC.................................11
3. Creepshots........................31
4. Black Dynomite...................49
5. Charlie's Angels...................94
6. Beach Bums.........................119
7. Skza's Squad........................146
8. Supah P's..............................156
9. Slippery Wizards.....................183
10. Equalizers.............................197
 The race is on. The top is as tight as its ever been and its shaping up to be a two team race for last as Slippery Wizards and Equalizers are fighting back and forth. The byes are coming to and end and the waiver wire has helped as well as trades. 8 games left are a lot for teams to make moves but they better start NOW. Lets hope for an injury free week and see if someone can top the 200pts like DMC did this year!! Good luck. TMX out.
If someone send you a Hammy dance you bring a good luck hamster...

2. Asking Hong Kong Dave to make plans is like scheduling a root canal.
3. Never put chips and dip in front of Jeffrey...gone in 60 seconds.

13. The suicide pool is over - now pay up suckers.
14. When your coworker brings in his kids cold and passes it around your office, thats effing great, right?
15. How come Paddy never wants to go on any road trips?
16. The NFL wants parity in the league, and with the exception of a handful of teams, they have that this year. Why does everyone seem to be bitching about that?
17. Congrats to TK's niece for hitting the 50/50 at the B's game! Winner winner season tickets just got paid for.
18. Always a good time when you go out for dinner but your booze tab far outweighs the food portion.

November is here

We rolled back the clocks and the temperature went up. I like how that works. I mean I do love the Fall and I am happy as a piss clam when its 60 degrees out.

This is what I learned:
1. Apparently, Rob Knudsen is referred to as Coach K in Hull.

2. Tomorrow is election day so vote early.
3. Would you move job locations for $15,000 more a year?
4. Julie Nickerson is alive and well and starts her new job next Monday.
5. Who knew trick or treating, while drinking a 30 pack, was so much fun?
6. Draft Kings > Fan Duel for the mere fact they don't use kickers. They also have an agreement with the NFLPA where as Fan Duel is being sued by them.
7. Don't forget its Movember guys.
8. All you Claude haters, who were hoping he would be fired by Thanksgiving, can eat a bag of dicks. Looks like these Bruins are gelling a lot faster than Cam thought.
9. Speaking of the Bruins the winter classic jersey look pretty nice.
10. It is kind of normal to just have shot guns laying around your house when you have kids over for a family dinner, right? At least in NH?
11. At what point does a crush become infatuation and when does that lead to stalking? Asking for a friend who may end up in a well some day.
12. Another year goes by and I don't see the Nightmare Before Christmas.
13. I can not wait for Thanksgiving. That's my jam.
14. Congrats to Johnny Gomes and the Kansas City Royals on winning the World Series.
15. Man oh man lots of injuries in the fantasy world.
16. Is there anything worse than slow/bad service at a bar or restaurant?
17. Mike Foley is glad he is home and wouldn't change anything the past year or so.
18. Kelly Cellar is a good spot to watch a game and the food was  pretty good. I mean how can you beat $1 tacos on a Thursday night. Doesn't hurt that the bar tender may of been hitting on Chrissy
19. Selfish pricks/people suck.
20. Where has angry Paddys posts been? He must be killing it at the gym or in the bedroom...either way he seems happier.
21. Guess it is frowned upon to go as one of your friends for Halloween, I had no idea.
22. My Brother in law Matty and his fiance Megan are looking to get hitched in Hull. Anyone have any experience with weddings at Nantasket Beach resort or the Salt Water Club?

Sorry gotta run but again don't bitch if you don't vote.

TMX week 7

TMX is back from its bye week ( shut down last week) for the week 7 recap! 
Creepshots are making their move to the top putting up  172 points and winning the week this week!! Rejuvenated Lamar Miller lead the way putting up 42 points most of them in the first half! Gronk did his thing and the rams d put up 32!! Creepshots has its eyes on the top spot with two impressive weeks in a row. 2nd place this week with 166 were the Beachbums. The Beachbums after some moving and shaking thru the wire and trades is climbing up the standings. Led this week by Luck's huge 2nd half ( 35 pts) and newly picked up wr Diggs (25pt) the Bums put up enough points to usually win the week. Starting old friend Christian Michael may have cost the Beach bums as he posted a lowly two points. Third place this week with 142 was Supah P's. Supah has the two leading rushers in the league with Chris Johnson and league MVP freeman. Mike Evans had a breakout week this week and the Seahawks d did their thing. Supah's just needs to find the right qb to lead his squad to the top. 4th place this week was Charlies Angels with 137. Brady led the way with 38 and rbs Ingram and the resurgent Dougie Fresh both put up over 20pts. Starting tight end Tim Wright putting up 1 point hurt the squad as Angels are stuck just outside the money. 5th place this week with 137 was Slippery Wizards. TY Hilton finally played like a wr1 with 34pts and Beastmode was back but Matt Ryan continues to put up just average  numbers as the defending champs try not to go from first to worst. 6th place this week also with 137 were the Jaybirds. Muddy Rivers again put up big numbers and Antonio Brown finally got back in the groove. Jimmy Graham continues to have a subpar year for the Jaybirds and have to wonder if a change of scenery would help? Jaybirds had a chance to take over first place but came up short. 7th place this week with 127 was DMC. Gurley ran like the new beastmode putting up 35 points while AP and Robinson stop short of 100 yards ( 98 each). Olsen and Beckham had rare off weeks hurting DMC who is trying to get over the hump and into the money. 8th place this week was Black Dynomite with 113. Rodgers and Cobb on a bye 113 isn't a bad bye week. Bell was solid and bye week replacements R. Mathews and Bortles held their own with 34 combined points. Black Dynomite got one point from Alf and will need to address that going forward to continue their stay at the top.  9th place this week was Skza's Squad with 98. Cooper and the Chiefs d had good weeks but Flacco put up noodle arm Manning numbers and Blount, Vjax and Edelman COMBINED for 8 points. Skza's one of the three in a tight fight for last and will need to make the right place to not be that guy! 
10th place this week for a second straight week were the Equalizers. Arian Foster was the only star this week with 27. Kicker J. Tucker actually outscored  3 players on the team and Tucker only had FOUR points. Equalizers need to hit big on the waivers and may want to think about trying to get good value for Dez Bryant cuz it looks like he needs two starters and TMX is not sure dez can come back and put up the numbers of 2 starters. 
Let's make some quick calls. First up old friend Arian Foster. Yo Arian its TMX sorry bout the injury but you left it all out there this week. " Hey TMX yeah Achilles is gone but I tried my best, guess I can maybe write some for the TMX guys hahahaha"  Good one! Well guess the question everyone wants to know is why were you out there when your team was down big in a blowout? " come on TMX you know why. The equalizers TRAIDED for me and I'm the best player they got, they needed me. What can I do?" Wow well now you're gone and Equalizers will have to adjust. Thanks for the time Arian. " Yo yo what about that job writing for you guys??" Ha not so much. Later. "BYE". Man tough break for one of TMX's frequent callers. Lets call Lamar Miller from this weeks winning team Creepshots. Hey Lamar its TMX how's it going? " TMX I heard all about you guys, man I'm honored." Thanks, what a great week, well actually half you had how do you explain it? " well its simple we got rid of the deadbeat coach and we brought in a guy who knows whats up. I'm not sure if Creepshots ownership had anything to do with his firing but he's certainly reaping the rewards and we are all happy for him. Sorry to be brief but I got a short week vs the pats and I'm looking to drop a 50 burger on them. L- out!' Wow high hopes from Mr. Miller!! Ain't bragging if you can do it is what TMX always says.  Let's look at the standings thru 7 weeks

1. Black Dynomite
2. Jaybirds....................................8pts
3. Creepshots...............................28pts
4. Charlies Angels..........................47pts
5. Beachbums................................65pts
6. DMC..........................................86pts
7. Supah P's..................................104pts
8. Slippery Wizards.........................153pts
9. Skza's Squad..............................153pts
10. Equalizers.................................213pts

     The bye week certainly tightened things at the top with Jaybirds now within single digits and four others under 100 for the top spot. The fight for the last place spot looks like the same three jocking back and forth with no one pulling away!! The bye weeks will test teams depth the next few weeks and the waiver wire and trades have already helped teams make up a lot of ground. The halfway point is just about here so its time to get serious and make the moves you need! Good luck in week 8 and hope for no injuries. TMX OUT.

Lets not jump off any cliffs just yet...

22. If you owned a bar what would you name it? I think I am going with Running Erins Pub. That way when someone asks where you been...Running Erin's (runnin errands for you people who cant get it).

26. Chrissy and I are not the only ones who give out full candy bars on Halloween are we?
27. Anyone have any insight on any new phones? I am thinking about the Nexus 6?
28. If you nickname someone and they don't know that is what you call them, then is it really a nickname or are you making fun of them.
29. I am pretty sure I saw Mike Foley  MORE when he was in NC than when he has returned.
30. I go away and come back and some one smashed my front wall. FUCKING RUDE!!

Sorry I was off last week but hey its a 30 pack of  things!!

What do you root for?

It has been a while since I posted an actual blog...

For the most part we are all sports fans but not necessarily fans of all sports. I know that there are some people who have no interest in sports what so ever and they are waiting on Halo 5 to come out but I am not talking about them wackos. I am talking about people who remember taking in their first baseball game, playing a pick up basketball game of 3 on 3 with some friends or just throwing a football back and forth. It all started somewhere - with your dad, your mom, your uncle, your best friend, an older brother or cousin, in your neighborhood, at school, at the YMCA, no matter where it started you became a fan.

Now over the years I have had this conversation with people and it always had one underlying tone - do you root for laundry (the name on the front) or players (the name on the back). There are die hard fans (laundry) that will root for any player that wears "their" teams uniform. These fans will then bad mouth that player if they change teams - trades, free agency and some times just a change of scenery all happen. These fans don't care the reason, Player X was here and now they are in another city. Don't need em, Don't want em, They can have them and so on and so on. The flip side of that is the fan who loves the sport and the players who play it . They have a team that they root for but they don't love all the guys that make up their team. They root for the team and want them to win. If their player moves on they follow them and still root for them.

I am now finding out there is a rare breed who root for coaches - no real team affiliation just the coach and their current team. I get it you guys man crush the shit out of Chip Kelly, Rick Pitino, Joe Maddon but this feels dirty to me.The Larry Browns of the world who build up teams only to move on when the work is done and start a new project isn't my thing.

So I ask again what do you root for - laundry, players or coaches?

Week 5 came and went

TMX back with the week 5 review!

Its been a wild ride so far in fantasy football. This weeks highest qb's? Undrafted Bortles and McCown! Top two rbs? None other than Dougie Martin and Davonta Freeman! Freeman is also the TMX MVP so far this season, guess Supah may ride him to the top!!

Let's get right into it. This week's first place team was Supah P the new bad boy of ADSL refusing to take congrats and just peacocking around like he owns the league. Supah had 169 this week led by Freeman, red hot Bradford, waiver find Hurns and Eifert. Looks like the Supah's are hitting on all cylinders right now!!

Second place this week  was Charlies Angels with 151 new Angel Doug Martin dropped a 40 burger and the usual suspects Cards d, Sanders, Brady and Mcmanus did there thing. Demaryius Thomas , Ingram and Randle let the Angels down but they are still in prime spot with Brady's bye done. Third place this week was DMC with 129. Palmer filled in adequately for Big Ben and new rb Gurley is a monster. ODB and Robinson produced but DMC left alot on the bench with Snead and Rawls. Couple big weeks should put DMC in the money. Fourth place with 128 was Black Dynomite. An off week for Rodgers and Cobb  gave teams hope but Bell and Hopkins did there thing and now with Gates ( 25 bench mob pts) waiting the league may wanna start to play for second place!!   5th place with 125 were the Equalizers. Brees to Cooks carried the club with 48pts! Foster and pats d also had decent weeks but the Equalizers Bench put up 102. Equalizers first day out the basement may wanna keep that bench mob down or he could head back!!

 6th place this week were the Jaybirds with 105. Muddy rivers and Falcons d were the only ones stepping it up this week . Antonio Brown, Jimmy Graham and L. Murray hurt the Jaybirds with off weeks. Luckily Ivory and Marshall are back off the bye so Jaybirds can get back to the top. 7th place this week were the Beach Bums with 102. Bums had a crushing loss as number one pick Charles is done for the year. The only Manning worth starting put up 44 to carry the team while for god only knows why Bums sat Andre Johnson in a known revenge game that hurt the team, this may be the week the Beach Bums pulls off one of his TRAIDS to get him back in contention. 8th this week were the Slippery Wizards who continue to slide.  Matty Ice and starting tight end Owen Daniels combined for 6 pts for the week. Packers did with 28 was the only one who performed. Good luck with that mold problem in the basement Slippery Wizards.

9th place this week were Skza's Squad with 97. Forte, Edelman and the Chiefs d carried the club but noodle arm manning putting up 6 killed the squad!! Skza's finally playing all his guys and not throwing out zeros so if Manning can get on track he should be able to get back up to the top 5. 10th place this week were the Creepshots with 94. Forsett and Yeldon were the only players in double digits. Stafford and Mega continue to disappoint and its only a matter of time before they are shipped out at this rate. Gronk and the Target Monster had rare off weeks that killed the team.

Lets just make some calls. First up Matt Stafford. Hey Matty its TMX whats going on? " oh man not you TMX you giving up on me too? My line is terrible and Mega aint bailing me out like he did all those years" Yeah I'm not giving up Matty but many are you think you can turn it around? " well I hope so but i'm doing all i can and if i don't, I mean you see my wife? Party girl and hot? Lets be honest Creepshots would wear any dress to hang with her so he should think about that when i'm putting up 7pts!! Wow interesting comment. I'll pass it along. Good luck Staff.

Up next Supah P's Devonta Freeman. Hey D its TMX whats going on? " Hi Mr. TMX thanks for the interview. Supah P's mngmnt has a written statement for you. We drafted Devonta Freeman cuz we knew Falcons were now a running team. Rest of the league didnt. On them. Thank you for you time TMX youre blogs are mediocre." Uhhhm Devonta you serious? this a joke? CLICK. WOW guess the Supah P's are feeling good!!  Here's the standings after 5.

1. Black Dynomite
2. Jaybirds............................71
3. Charlie's Angels.................77
4. Supah P's..........................110
5. DMC..................................132
6. Creepshots.........................135
7. Skza's Squad.......................142
8. Beach Bums.........................142
9. Equalizers............................178
10. Slippery Wizards.................188

  This season has been wild and theres seems to be a new breakout game everyweek and a star who disappears!! Supah P is on the move up from 8 to 4 so there is some hope for the bunched up crew at the bottom but let it be known if you arent putting up at least 141pts you are taking the weekly win!! The lowest has been 141 while we have had 174! Lets  hope its your week to have a break out star and the injuries stop!! Good luck!! Get to the waivers and trades help teams so pull that trigger!! TMX OUT.

Alright Girls We Can All Stop Liking the Bruins

alright ladies, it's over. You can all stop "loving" the Bruins. Since 2011 we've all been subjected to the greatest farce in sports history and that is Bruins Pink Hatting.

But my Boyfriend plays hockey

My brother played.......

I played 

No, no, no and no. Shut up. Look I'm not a hockey guy. I'm a football guy. And even I know this trend is BS.  Just stop it. Please stop. It's not healthy. The only reason it's popular is because it gives women a license to A.) oogle ugly men that in normal circumstances they couldn't because their friends would judge them and B.) meet the equally annoying faux hockey guy at the Garden.

So if we as a community are to recover please let's stick to the old reliables ladies of getting trashed at Country concerts in order to meet guys or failing that fighting for room on the Pats bandwagon. And don't give me the I like country. No you don't. You live in Massachusetts or I've always like the Patriots. No nobody did. Until they started winning.

So let's all take a step back and stop this before Bruins bachelorette parties become a thing.

Week 4 in the books

TMX week 4 review is here.

Week four was a wild week with a lot of stars putting in average weeks and some guys coming out of nowhere to carry clubs. There were three trades made this week with big name QBs like Killah Cam and Palmer changing teams as well as preseason MVP Doug Martin a.k.a The Muscle Hampster a.k.a The Douggernaut finding a new home! Separation in the standings is starting to take place and the bye weeks have started.

Lets look at how the week played out. For the second week in a row Black Dynomite came away with the win with 146pts. Black D (street name) has won every week since number one pick Leveon Bell has played!! Bell, Hopkins, Maclin and the red hot panthers d let them this week and this team is now the team to beat!! The wagon is rolling over the league! Second place this week was Beach Bums with 121. Bums finally got a big week from J. Hill who had the TD hat trick, Black Unicorn who was TRAIDED to Beach Bums earlier continues to produce and now has Cutler back! Stevie Johnson the fantasy football whore on his third team in 4 weeks didn't help the Bums this week with 5 points. Doug Martin lit up the bench with 27 and was rewarded with a trade to last place Equalizers. Tough love is what TMX calls that move!!

3rd this week were the Creepshots with 120. Forsett found his groove and Rams d produced but Cook in Gronks spot only managed 3 points and the Tannehill playing for the struggling Stafford well STRUGGLED.   Creepshots management responded by trading Tannehill for Killah Cam! Smell ya Tannehill. 4th place this week was Equalizers with 108. Carson Palmer and waiver wire stud Chuckie Clay led the way as Arian Foster was slow to get back in the groove and TMX fav Steve Smith got back bones broken trying to get Equalizers out of the cellar. Cj Spiller broke out on the bench with 19. Equalizers promptly traded spiller and Palmer hoping to cash in on the Brees to cooks waterfall. ( cue up the TLC).

 Fifth place this week was Supah P's with 102. Supah is riding redhot Freeman who put up another 3tds. Supah may have himself a qb controversy with Bradford and Wilson which should be watched. Lacy doing his usual slow to start act is hurting the Supah's right now. 6th place this week was Slippery Wizards with 102. Wizards were led by Packers d 24pts and then the rest was a struggle as Jordan Reed got his 5th concussion and Lynch sat up in the press box giggling and eating skittles. Defending champs are on a downward spiral. 7th place this week were Skza's Squad with 98. Skza continues to peacock the league with his unorthodox style like starting two guys McCoy and Desean Jax who had been declared out!! Vjax picked up the slack as Skza's Squad still was better than three other teams! 8th place this week was DMC with 90pts. Dalton and Ap led the team but the bench had new toy Gurley and Hillman putting up 22pts. 9th place this week was Jaybirds with 84. Gift and a curse having a loaded team for Jaybirds. Bench put up 132 and considering titans d was on a bye if Jaybirds had just started all bench players and Falcons d (27pts) they win the week. OUCH. Last this week was Charlie's Angels with 81. Cam Newton led the team in a week with God Brady on the bye. ( hey cam thanks- smell ya- you're traded) Jones and Ebron putting up 4 total killed the squad. Mcmanus the kicker they love to hate once again put up big numbers ON THE BENCH. 

                                                              ( I believe I can fly!)

Lets make some calls starting with Brandon Mcmanus the kicker they love to hate. Hey Brando its TMX whats good? " Tmx!! Holy cow you're calling a kicker? And its me? I feel so honored since my team hates me!! Hey guys its TMX calling me!! Brando can we talk about how you currently have more points than Eddie Lacy and Marshawn Lynch not to mention 20 more points than your own starting RB CJ Anderson and your team continues to bench you?? " maogahprohaeigiaa;gjkajg" Brando you there??  "ampgajpghaiog;adg" BRANDON?? CAN YOU HEAR US? " sorry, sorry tmx bunch of the guys duct taped me to my locker and spray painted Mcpenis on my shirt again, man these guys hate me." Hmm well TMX doesn't sponsor bully life but at the same time we don't want to be a witness in any sort of hazing case so TMX gotta go! Keep putting up numbers Brando!!  Eeek that got awkward real fast. Charlies Angels control your locker room my goodness!!

Up next lets call Le'veon Bell of Black Dynomite. Yo Le'veon what it is  " Tmx listen I love you guys but we aint talking man and you know why" L?? What we've been tight since you came into the league whats the deal? you serious?? " Listen we were tight but you ask Wes Cash about why I got suspended bro? He was out doing some investigative reporting we all having a good time next thing I know i'm suspended four games YOU FIGURE IT OUT. Click. " Hmmm well lets uhhm get to the standings after 4 weeks.
1. Black Dynomite
2. Jaybirds........................51pts
3. Charlie's Angels.............100pts
4. Creepshots....................102pts
5. Skza's Squad..................111pts
6. Beach Bums...................114pts
7. Dmc...............................133pts
8. Supah P's........................152pts
9. Slippery Wizards..............160pts
10. Equalizers.......................176pts

 Well Black Dynomite seems to be in control comfortably early. Its a long season but the rest of the league better get it going or it may be a long miserable season. The last place race is much tighter and two of the four teams in the bottom have made trades this week so it could  get ugly for the other two if things don't change. Lets hope for our first week with no big name injuries its been brutal. Thanks to drunknothings for the phone card and map of all the local pay phones so TMX can go back to making calls. GOOD LUCK IN WEEK 5 and keep the traids coming and lets ease up on the traid marination!! You get a trade respond pretty simple process. Til next week TMX out.

Heres to Hoping

Here is to hoping that Fall lasts longer than Spring.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Watching a 4 year old over night is exhausting. Always on the go and they never shut up.
2. At what point do you just let your hair grow and not get a cut.
3. If you aren't getting your pasta with cabonara sauce then you aint living.
4. Burning your hand on a pan fresh out the oven is not fun.
5. I heard the Kubie Krawl was a success. Great job by all those involved.
6. CVG is killing the Uber game, nothing confirmed that he also does LYFT on his other cell phone.
7. Chrissy has adjusted nicely to the over night but his wing addiction is through the roof.
8. Honestly who gets married on a Sunday?
9. I always seem to forget about going to Lamberts for fresh meats and veggies.
10. Bye bye Beachcomber.
11. Mario went to the movies for the 1st time in over 4 years and he will not be going back anytime soon.
12. I know I have said this before but this is the worst fantasy season I can remember.
13. Got my first win of Draft Kings this week and it feels great.
14. The Bruins season kicks off Thursday. Are you guys ready for this?

Thats all the time I have right now.

Have a nice week.

Week 3 review

Week three is in the books and once again we had big name players coming down with injuries. 

Many in the league are starting to think there is a voodoo hammy dancing jinx running around ADSL. 

TMX insider Wes Cash is currently doing investigative research!! Hope to find out if voodoo  hammy dancing jinxes are a thing or not.  

Lets get to the week 3 review. This weeks winner was Black Dynomite with a season high 174. Black Dynomite got first round pick Bell back but his 23pts weren't the story it was Monday night magic as Rodgers and Cobb went off for 49 and 31 on Monday night!!! " Black Dynamite is stacked from front to back and ready to cruise like a Cadillac" per team management. Okie dokie.  

Second place this week was Jaybirds with 164. Julio and his 20 targets for 39 points and Brown again led the way. Brown may be in a bit of trouble losing Big Ben but Marshall is a wr1 and Fitzy put up 34 so there is no need to worry at wr spot in Jaybirds land. Muddy Rivers putting up 10pts may have to be addressed!!

Third place this week was DMC. Despite losing Big Ben DMC put up 153. AP, Olsen, J.Jones, and Bills d made up for Big Ben and Rookie Gurly putting up a combined 6pts!! Picking up Dalton should save DMC and keep him at the top. 

Fourth place this week was Creepshots with 138pts Mr first half Randle and Target monsters 36pts led the way in a week were Mega and Gronk had off weeks. Creepshots may have to look and see if he can move Stafford or at least try and start Tannehill to see if he's the answer. 

Fifth place this week was Charlie's Angels with 135. Huge week from Cards d and Brady paced the Angels. The running back stable led the team down with Jones and CJ putting up 4pts combined. A quick look at the bench sees the 91st overall pick outscored the 90th this week. QB controversy?? 

Sixth place with 134 was Beach Bums. Beach Bums had a huge 49 burger from AJ and  28 from Charles and newly acquired Eli put up 23 all were needed as the Bums got ZEROS from Andre Johnson AND Dolphins d! 

Seventh this week were Supah P's with 131.  Supah was led by an impressive week from Freeman 44pts and the triumphant return of Mike evans all of which was needed as Supahs also had two players put up ZEROS, Eifert and Williams put the goose eggs  up.  Supah has the answers on the bench with Wright and Chris Johnson putting up 20 and 32 so just needs to make the right calls going forward. 

Eigth place this week was Skza's squad with 117. Noodle Arm Manning maybe turning the corner as he threw for over 300yds and 2 tds rookie stud Cooper also continues to shine,  Off weeks by McCoy, Forte and Edelman hurt the Skza's this week but that shouldn't be the case most weeks.

Ninth place this week was Slippery Wizards with 102, The Wizards are in terrible shape as if they had played their ENTIRE roster they would have had 154pts ( no one on a  bye) which would have been good enough for 3rd place by one point this week!! Ryan and Gore helped the team but Lynch putting up 2 and prater dropping the impressive MINUS 1 did  not!!

Last place this week was Equalizers with 101. Steve smith answered the bell with 42 while Luck continues to under perform did have 20 aside from pats d getting 11 no one else reached double digits! Back to back last place finishes has to have Equalizers circling the wagon for answers, lets hope they hit the waiver lottery or make a trade to figure this out. 

Lets look at the standing after 3 weeks:
1. Jaybirds
2. Black Dynamite          10pts
3. Charlies Angels          47pts
4. Skza's Squad              73pts
5. Creepshots                 87pts
6. DMC                          88pts
7. Beach Bums                101pts
8. Supah P's                   122pts
9. Slippery Wizards          126pts
10 Equalizers                  149pts

    Jaybirds looking to go wire to wire is now in serious jeopardy as Black Dynomite has found its groove. The bottom of the league looks to be separating itself early and it could be a long season if teams don't find their ways with trades or waiver help!! Its a long season but teams still need to make the right plays each week and hopefully avoid anymore big name injuries. No calls this week as financial crunch at drunknothings had the phones shut down. Hopefully, they can get the bill paid by next week or we may have to make home visits. TMX out.

How Come

How come no one is planning hay rides, apple picking, or haunted houses?  THIS IS SOME BULLSHIT!

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Food truck festivals are the shit!
2. Always a good time bumping into someone you haven't seen a few years.
3. The Hancock Tavern isn't a bad spot. Nice little patio out back and decent food.
4. Welcome back Mike Foley.
5. Who doesn't like college football? I mean football is football.
6. Calnan says that fall is bulking season. So the carb free summer is over.
7. Don't forget the Annual Kubie Krawl is this Saturday in Southie, swing by for some drinks and laughs. The money raised go towards a great cause.
8. Ecco in Weymouth is a pretty inexpensive place for dinner.
9. There is nothing worse than a slow Monday.
10. Papa Ginos pizza is under rated.
11. This list is very food driven.
12. Are you guys sad that CSI is over?
13. Fucking fruit flies are shit! They never ever seem to disappear.
14. How come you can not get a hot dog omelet?
15. I prefer bananas to be more on the green side.
16. Why do I feel like every day I get an email about my damn credit score. Are credit scores the new Nigerian prince?
17. I can do without calamari. Doesn't really do much for me.
18. Has anyone heard from Supah P? I have texted him on a few occasions with no response, man LOVE IS DEEP!

That is all I have today. Food, food and more food I guess.

TMX week 2 review

TMX week 2 review is here.

There were big name injuries this week and this seems to be the trend for this year, so trades and the waiver wire should be heating up. Equalizers and BeachBums made a trade with the BeachBums getting Mr everything Dion Lewis, Martellius Bennett and Giants d for Pats d, Injured Julius Thomas and Rashad Jennings. TMX loves the action and also loves a team owner's reaction " never trust a beach weasel and a smile".

Lets get to the review.  This weeks winner was Charlie's Angels ( due to budget cuts at Drunknothings TMX lost its stats guy BUT we believe this is their first winning week!) Angels put up 141pts Brady dropped 44 and the Broncos WR corp of Demaryius and Sanders totaled 44 as well! Tight end Allen put up a goose egg but it didn't matter as Card D put up 20 plus!! A solid week which moved the Angels into serious contention at the top! Second with 137 was Skza's Squad. Skza's was led by Edelman ( NINETEEN TARGETS), hotshot rookie Amari Cooper and the J-E-T-S D. Forte  and Shady had off weeks and Blount got Belichicked into a 0 or Skza would have had his first win of the season, either way they are in the hunt. Third place this week is DMC with 128. DMC is riding the big arm of Big Ben who put up 41 and stud ODB put up his first big game of the year. DMC  has some work to do to get to the top but he also has a bench mob of Stevie Johnson ( 1st in the  league in yards after the catch) and whats my name JAMESJONES. All he does is catch TDs. 4th this place was Jaybirds with 121. Jaybirds is the place to go for all your wide receiver needs!! This week the dynamic duo of Julio and Antonio "Wha's that" Brown put up 25 and 37 respectively. His wr's on the bench fitzy and marshall had 38 and 27!! Jaybird equals WR U. Make him an offer before we have Robfrey 2.0 on our hands!! 5th place with 114 was Slippery Wizards. Wizards getting zero from the big name rbs is doing it with garbage time Mathews TDs, waiver pickup Moncrief and Mr 25pts Matty Ryan. Gonna be a long season if that is to continue!!

6th place with 106 was Black Dynamite. Black Dynamite is riding the Rodgers-Cobb-Crosby (14pt kicker) so far that has kept them afloat and now they get best rb in football back ( BELL) so they should be making their way further up the top!! 7th place this week was Creepshots with 104. The Stafford-Mega combo showed some life but the team is starting to be Gronk and the rest of the guys. Browns d putting 34pts up on the bench didn't help "the rest of the guys". 8th place with 101 was Beach Bums. Hill putting up 0 put them in a hole and Landry and Charles were the only guys touching the 20s this week. Mr Everything Dion Lewis may have to be factored into the lineup and Arian Foster is due back soon so BeachBums are not in a bad spot. 9th place this week with 89 was Supah P's. Supah was led by Russy Wilson , Eagles D, and Supah P fav T- Williams. Lacy and Roddy putting up a 0 hurt the squad this week but Freeman and Gio getting more run should help the Supahs or as one owner called them " the ralph tresvants " -( man like me, man with sensitivity).

 Last place this week was Equalizers with 85. Pats d and kicker Tucker led the team. You read that right. Kicker 15 and d 24. How long are Equalizers going to wait for Luck to get out of it is the question?  Well, as we ponder that lets make some calls.

 First up from the last place team we are calling the always hyped up Steve Smith Sr who was on the Equalizers bench this week putting up 25 which is more that any of his starters. Hey Steve whats good its TMX " OH MY MAN TMX WHATS GOING DOWN, THIS IS MY LAST YEAR GLAD YOU CALLED, I HAD A GREAT WEEK 150YDS 10 CATCHES WE WON THIS SHIT RIGHT?" Uhhhm not quite Steve you guys came in last and worse you weren't even in the lineup! " YOU KIDDING ME? REMEMBER WHEN I SAID THERE WOULD BE BLOOD AND GUTS SO WEAR YOUR GOGGLES WHEN THE PANTHERS LET ME GO? WELL TELL WHOEVER ISNT STARTING ME HE BETTER HAVE HIS GOGGLES ON! SHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET. SITTING STEVE SMITH SENIOR" Love the intensity ( all caps) Steve and we will pass the message along! You'll be missed next year if your looking for work TMX is hiring. " HA GOOD ONE TMX HOPE YOU CALL ME BACK WHEN I PUT UP ANOTHER MONSTER WEEK. STEVE SMITH SR. DONT YOU FORGET IT OR I'LL BUST YO LIP" Ha old Steve Smith always a great call.

Let's call Tom Brady from the winning team. Hey Tom its TMX great start to the season. " Oh TMX thanks man, just doing everything I can to help the team win, I mean all the players are playing great I'm just doing my part." Always humble which ironically is the opposite of your owner who threw it in the whole leagues face and may or may not have flew a plane over TMX headquarters telling everyone you were the 90th pick in the draft? " oh TMX I'm sure many great players went ahead of me, I'm just fortunate to have great teammates and coaches who put me in position to win ( loud Portuguese yelling in the backround) Tom Tom everything ok? " don't you call my husband or this house I remember you guys sneaking around when I was with Leonardo and then calling me a homewrecker when me and Tommy got together LEAVE US ALONE" Uhmm this Gisele? This is TMX  not that silly fake reporting agency. We are a legitimate fantasy football reporting site. "  huh? oh ?? uhhm let me give Tom back the phone. Hey guys sorry bout that think she thought you were someone else. Ha women. Anyway coach got us preparing for next week so I have to cut this call short. Thanks again TMX. " Thank you Tom good luck the rest of the way.

The season is young and there is plenty of football to be played but with injuries and players having slow starts some teams may not want to hang on too long and have a huge hole to climb out of. Heres a look at the standings as we head to week 3

1. Jaybirds
2. Charlies Angels 18
3. Black Dynamite 20
4. Skza's Squad     27
5. Creepshots        62
6. Slippery Wizards 64
7. Beach Bums       71
8. DMC                  76
9. Equalizers          86
10 Supah P's          90

          As is normal there are tight races at the top and the bottom but it can all change with one good week. Lets hope the injury bug slows down and everyone stars start to play like it!! Trades and waiver wire adds are your friends. TMX out.

Fall is here bitches and that's my favorite season. Hoodies, jeans and comfort food a plenty.

This is what I learned this weekend:

TMX week 1 in the book review

TMX is back with the weekly review!!

Due to major construction at Drunknothings (look for hats and t shirts coming soon), TMX's reviews have been told to be short and sweet.

First a quick shout out to @jimmykempski a must follow if you want to keep up on all your Iggles info.

Now onto the week 1 recap. This weeks winner was last years dress wearer The Jaybirds who put up 160! The term wagon is well know around ADSL so its no surprise that that's the label Jaybirds is getting! Led by Muddy Rivers and star wr's Julio and Brown the Jaybirds are primed for an end to end run. Especially when you realize he left 36 points on the bench with Carlos Hyde. Jaybirds putting the league on notice.

2nd this week was Black Dynamite. Looks like bringing Black Mike and the crew to the draft has got the boys at Black Dynamite ready to push for the top. Rodgers, Hopkins, Oldman Witten and the Panthers d helped BD put up 154! Considering Bell isn't even back yet and Sproles and Harvin are fighting to get in the lineup its may be another long year for the BD haters; which TMX found out there are many!!

3rd place this week was Charlie's Angels with 121. Brady led the Angels with Ingram helping out. Charlie's Angels was the talk of the draft going all in on the Bronco's offense with CJ, Sanders and D. Thomas. TMX had a rare one on one interview owners of Charlies and there is legitimate concern when the talk turned to "noodle arm" Manning. Getting 19 points out of those two wide receivers is something to worry about, as is picking up Mcmanus and his 15 points and letting them rot on the bench!! Fantasy rule number 1 you pick up a player during the week you start him - PERIOD.

4th place this week was Skza Squad with 114. Skza got a great week from Mr. Everything Forte and Jets D but Manning put up 4 points and Bush put up a goose egg!! Skza's left baby Gronk Kelce's and his 30pts on the bench - that needs to change ASAP!!

5th place this week was Creepshots with 114.  Creepshots were led by Target Monster Keenan Allen and of course Gronk. The Stafford/Mega combo was a week one let down with only 21 and  Sefarian-Jenkins is pushing for the double tight end set putting up 30 on the bench!!

6th place with 109 this week was Equalizers. Led by Sankey ( you read that right) Luck, and the Broncos D. There may be a qb battle over there at Equalizers as Palmer was putting up 36 on the bench!! Equalizers made a name for themselves this week with trying to trade Dez Bryants injured ass for everyone's top picks!!

7th place this week was Beach Bums owners or preseason MVP Doug Martin. Beach Bums put up 109 with Brees, Hill and Charles having decent but not star weeks. Owen Daniels giving the team 1 point at tight end hurt the cause but Beach Bums ain't called Beach Weasles for nothing, they will figure it out and makes some TRAIDS that will get them back to the top.

8th place this week was last years winner Slippery Wizards with 102. Ryan and Mathews put up decent numbers but when a def, tight end and flex player COMBINED get the same as your kicker, changes need to be made.

9th place this week with 102 was Supah P's. Wilson, Lacy and Seahawks D carried the team that started Evans who was out injured and left Eifert and Wright and their 50 plus points on the bench. Bench Mob indeed.

Last place in week one went to the TMX favorite to win it all DMC with 75pts. Big Ben (upside down pick) led the team but number one pick AP putting up 6 and Vinitieri getting NEGATIVE 1 left DMC in big time trouble. Tevin (Campbell) Coleman - AKA Mr Round and Round on the streets - did an ok job getting 80yds but DMC is gonna have to maybe get Romo or Jones in that lineup to get out of the cellar.

 Lets make some quick calls and get out of here, first up Carlos Hyde of the Jaybirds.

Hey Mr. Hyde its TMX calling to talk about your week putting up 36 point for the Jaybirds bench. " TMX? who you fools?? You looking for some sort of donation?" Whoa whoa TMX needs no donations we have enough Folan dollars to go from here to San Fran and back 7 times, we just called to ask you how it feels to be on Jaybirds team and him benching you week one? " listen TMX you seen my quotes? I plays for my family, teammates and the name on my back! you got me? This interview is going all wrong Mr. Hyde. I just wanted to know how you like the league and your team?  " listen my man I aint into fantasy I'm into real life, how'd you even get my number?" We are TMX we have all the numbers and you know what don't bother changing yours cuz good chance we don't call it again. TMX doesn't deal with these attitudes. CLICK. Well that was something, first time in TMX history that we had to hang up on someone. Week one off to a blazing start. That was a first and now another first. TMX next call was to none other than Adrian Peterson. Hey AP its old friend TMX whats going on? " oh man TMX I know what this is about, I had a terrible week and let my team down wont happen again" Well you put up 6 points I guess the obvious question is you think DMC is gonna give you a whooping for that. " Come on TMX TOO SOON TOO DAMN SOON, SON. Look I wait for you to call me next week but I'm out this week before you get worse with your jokes. Later. Well that's more like it no hangups.

Week 2 starts Thursday and the waiver wire should  be on fire with tons of injuries to big name players biggest being Dez. Lets hope stars play like stars this week and nobody gets hurt. TMX out.
