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!

Week 10 review

TMX is back after a one week hiatus to report all the news of week 10 in fantasy (real life) football. Last weeks winner was Slippery Wizards who are still holding off the hard chargers to remain in first place. 

The trash talking has ramped up as we head into the final 7 weeks of the season. Teams are getting huge weeks from with defenses and players putting up 40 burgers on the regular  and ALMOST everyone is in striking distance with the last of the big byes past. The stretch run should bring lots of movement!! TMX also had a TMX exclusive interview with IGGLES " hey you clowns still trying to manage teams?? " whoa Iggles whats that mean come on? " well tell whoever has Maclin Sanchez loves Mathews and he will have a big game Monday"(  EDITORS NOTE  I did relay this message just in case Iggles was right to the Maclin owner and rest of the league) Mathews line from Monday Night- 7rec 138yds 2 tds= 34pts for a player not in the league! Ouch hurts when Iggles makes the call. Tmx can hear him cackling from parts unkown as we type this!! Enough about notorious Iggles lets get on with the week 10 results. This weeks winners were the surging Beachbums who have rode their new players aquired in TRAIDS to 177pts!! Philly d put up 43 and Dez (TR) pitched in with 38!! helping the Beachbums move closer to the money into 4th! 2nd place this week was Black Dynamite with 175 looks like "the wagon" is finally rolling on all cylinders led by Manning and Marshall among others!! 3rd place this week was DMC with 167. 
The two trick pony did it again getting over 80 from Rodgers and Jordy! 4th this week was Supah P's with 142 Cards d and Beastmode put up monster weeks to help offset T.Williams dropping a goose egg on the Supahs!! 5th this week was Slippery Wizards with 130 Julio Jones and Lacy Sundays led the Wizards. 6th place was Grahamatron 129pts who boldly stated on Wednesday that he had the week one and as one anonymous owner say " well Grahamatron was right he did win the week ROBFREY" kind cryptic?? 7th place this week was newly named NoRomo with 117pts led by his young wrs Benjamin and Evans (keeper league studs). 8th place this week was PP (name has been abbreviated to spare the embarrassment) with 105 led by new wr Bryant and old stand by and possible league mvp Murray. 9th place this week was Jackals with 93 ( Maclin owner we spoke of prior)  was led by new qb-wr combo Brees-cooks! Last place this week was FYW with 90pts. FYW was hurt by the Indy bye week and had only roddy white to lean on, not getting far with that. Lets make some calls!

First call to the Beachbums Dez Bryant, Yo Dez its TMX whats good?? " nah nah i aint talking to you guys reporting that me and the fellas broke curfew f-that holmes" No no Dez tmX with and X not a z, the fantasy site not the other one! " oh my bad ruff ruff where my dogs at DMX how you doing dog? Wait you in jail again? Cuz I need a new contract I got no money for ya DOG" No no dez its TMX not DMX calling about your week? "oh TMX i thought you were out of business saw no review last week? Whats good? Love my new team cant believe I landed here for some rookie WR, its all good now! But listen I aint talking right now cuz i'm on a mission to GET PAID, prolly be calling me next week too DEZ out!! Wow a fired up Dez checking in and calling his shot for next week!! 

Next up we give a call to last place team FYW's Jay Cutler. Hey Cutty hows it going really let down the team this week what happened? " Hey TMX whats going on? got a smoke on you? Love me a good smoke, anyway no biggie threw a td didnt get hurt, i mean defense got torched huh? Uhhm well I guess but Cutty you put up 9pts this week kinda killed the team in the one week they needed you? " thats cool, though aint no thing 9 points good in that league if not change the scoring? Anyway i'm heading to my beach to chill man wish this league had two bye weeks dont you TMX" Guess Cutty's care factor is around zero pretty much a wasted call!! Heading to week 11 with only 7 weeks left lets take a look at the final standings.

1. Slippery Wizards
2. Black Dynamite.....................72pts
3. FYW....................................99pts
4. Beachbums..........................129pts
5. DMC....................................143pts
6. Jackals................................154pts
7. Supah P's..........................191pts
8. PP's...................................209pts
9. Noromo..............................305pts
10. Grahamatron.....................377pts

        Fyw took a hit with Luck and the boys on a bye and dropped from 2-3 while Black Dynamite has made the move from 4-2. The Jackals were the biggest drop going down from 3 to 6, Beachbums and Dmc swapped 5 and 6 while Supahs and PP's swapped 7 and 8!! The bottom 2 remain the same.  The way this league has been putting up points with 7 weeks there is alot of time to make a move!! Dallas, Jets, Jax and Baltimore are on the byes this week as the big bye weeks are done. The trade and waiver wire has been the key to movements this year so every team should head to one of them !! TMX apologizes for no review last week(we submitted an article but APPARENTLY the Editor was on vacation out in the South West) but is back for the remainder of the season!! Lets stay healthy and have a good week TMX OUT.

Who missed me?

Yes, I know I said I would try to update the blog when I was on vacation but guess what I was enjoying my time away and didn't feel like it.

This is what I learned while I was away (a nice case):
1. The Grand Canyon is amazeballs (I have a shit ton of pics if anyone wants to see them).

2. The whole southwest is all franchises and fast food joints.
3. I don't know if there are aliens but something 100% happened at Roswell. A government cover up at the very least.
4. As good as vacation is, it is always good to be into a routine.
5. Jeffrey hates fun things.
6. Coach Rob's team can't stop the run.
7. $5.00 for the Redzone on my phone may be the best money I spent all year.
8. Since Jeffrey is addicted to Divas, he is planning on having a Survivor series party at my house November 23rd. All are welcome.
9. I think Mario may of secretly came into some money. He bought a house and now a brand new truck. Must be nice living on primrose lane.
10. Apparently in Texas there are quilt and gun shows everyday all day.
11. Fucking cowboy boots are expensive as all fuck.
12. If you have a chance check out Carlsbad Caverns. Insane!
13. If hotels don't have 13th floors does it also mean they don't have rooms 666?
14. Are we still "asking for a friend?" Asking for a friend.
15. The Alamo was pretty awesome as well. Yes, I know there is no basement.
16. No biggie just a dead shark at the end of my street:

17. I was too fat to ride a mule at the Grand canyon. You need to be 225 lb fully clothed and I came in at 235 lb ...whomp whomp whomp.
18. I swear too fucking much when I am bombed.
19. Heard a rumor that Chrissy is doing no shave November but for his BALLSACK!
20. Where should I go on vacation next? And who is coming with?
21. Soup as a meal is kind of under rated.
22. Have you ever had the coffee roll from Kanes donut. Holy shit that thing will put you in a diabetic shock but its great.
23. Welchie is still kicking ass and taking names in darts. After winning states last year and being bumped up to B division they still have not lost in over a year.
24. I love the winter but I hate how it dries out my skin.

This is what I am currently hating:
1. Family drama.
2. Co-workers who do not communicate.
3. The Bruins season so far and add the Celtics to that list too.
4. Mother fuckers who don't text back.
5. Long ass car rides.
