And just like that Xmas is here

There are only 25 shopping days till Christmas. Today is a great day to start shopping , being cyber Monday and all. There isn't much that I need so no need to spend your money on me.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Sarah likes to send snap chats of Jeffrey's junk.
2. Rumor has it that Tooma is living the high life down in the Poconos. Rolling with a whole new crew of friends and only living part time at the casino.
3. Chrissy is sick, please send him some chicken soup.
4. The Adele song Hello makes me laugh.
5. Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time of fun and family but man some families are just straight up fucked up.
6.I have tried before but I am going to try again. Planning a trip to Point Sebago, it is looking like Saturday July 9th - the 16th. Fun for everyone.
7. It seems like everyone has some sort of hustle going on.
8. I ventured out on Black Friday and it wasn't bad.
9. Don't look now but it appears that Willie is over his bout of vertigo.
10. The annual Whitley Yankee re-gift party may be a Welchie house warming party this year.

Gotta run. Works a bitch!

Week 11

TMX week 11 Thanksgiving day review is here!

There are 6 weeks left in the season and all the byes are done so this is the time that makes and breaks seasons!! Lets get to the scores. First place this wild week with 137 points were the Equalizers. The now healthy Equalizers got big games from Dalton and Jones as well as Pats D and TMX friend Alfred Blue finally found the endzone!! TMX newly installed basement cameras saw numerous moving boxes in the basement as Equalizers are on the move!!
2nd place this week with 125 were the Slippery Wizards. Waiver wire fill in Rawls carried the Wizards with 49pts. The rest of the team barely showed up except for Ryan and his usual 20pt game. Slippery WIzards are still in the bottom four battle for the basement and if they cant get wr help they may head back there!! 3rd place this week was DMC with 118. Palmer led the way with 37 but late wr pickup Crowder hurt the squad putting up 1 point. It may be time for the double tight end set as Delanie Walker continues to post good numbers. Black Dynomite came in 4th this week with 117. QB proof Hopkins continues to do his thing with 31pts and panthers d helped out while ALF posted another zero at the rb spot. Black D is still in contention for the money but has not been able to make a move in the last few weeks to gain ground. 5th place this week was Beach Bums with 116. The beach bums traided for a qb which they then dropped and picked up Wilson who carried  club with 31pts. Stewart has been sneaky one of the steady rbs this year and was good again this week. Beach Bums are right near the top and looking for one big week to make it into the money. 6th place this week was Creepshots with 110. Newton carried the team with 41 and did all he could to get the win but the only other player with double digits was kicker Catanzaro, cant win a week with that kind of  out put. Creepshots is currently in the money and needs to make each 40 burger cam puts up count.
7th this week with 101 was Skza's Squad. McCoy and Mcfadden (sounds like a law firm) carried the team but rookie standout Cooper put up a 0. Skza is in the bottom four and now gets his new toy Brees to try and put him away from the basement should be an interesting 6 weeks. 8th place this week were Jaybirds with 98pts. Off week by Muddy Rivers ( 4 pts) and ivory kept the Jaybirds from making a move back to the top. Jaybirds is within striking distance of catching DMC and his team is loaded so much so that he dropped Lafell this week to solidify his bench with vjax who put up td on the bench! Gonna come down to the right plays the rest of the way for Jaybirds cuz he obviously has the talent. 9th place this week was Charlie's Angels with 97. Dougie Martin put up 235 rushing but off week from Brady and TWO zeros put up by Jones and Ebron hurt the team. Angels could make a move to the top and probably would be closer with the right movess.

 This off week pushed them back a little and should be interesting if God Brady can carry him back near the promise land with his wr's going down. Last place this week is Supah P's with 85. Supah was hit with injuries once again as fantasy MVP candidate Freeman got concussed and Flacco is now done for the season. Supahs in now in the bottom four fighting for their lives.

Lets make some calls. First up from the winning team Equalizers new qb Andy Dalton. Hey Andy its TMX whats good " TMX? Are you the people who say things meaner than that jerk JJ Watt?? Well I'm not talking to you guys CLICK. OUCH. Well guess the red rocket told us? Good luck rest of the year Mr Sensitive. Lets try another call to Supah P's Tyler Eifert. Hey Tyler its TMX what a season you are having! " hey man I'm just doing my thing getting open scoring tds" Certainly are with 11 on the season but could use a few more yards that would really help out, think you can get Dalton to look for you more outside the redzone? " man I'm not sure if you know Andy but he's a little touchy so I cant really complain to him he'd freeze me out, he hung up on me one time you know!!"  Oh Tyler believe me we know!!  Anyway good luck with the rest of the season Supah's could really use you and tell Andy Tmx says hi!! " Thanks man I'll try and I'll definitely tell Andy!

Lets take a look at the overall standings.

1. DMC
2. JAYBIRDS....................................39PTS
3. CREEPSHOTS..............................81PTS
4. BLACK DYNOMITE.........................92PTS
5. BEACH BUMS................................124PTS
6. CHARLIE'S ANGELS........................178PTS
7. SLIPPERY WIZARDS........................193PTS
8. SKZA'S SQUAD...............................220PTS
9. SUPAH P'S.....................................224 PTS
10. EQUALIZERS.................................261PTS

    Its Thanksgiving week so there is a few big Thursday games and the byes are gone this is the official start of the homestretch so lets hope everyone is making the right plays and all the injuries are behind us. The trade deadline is approaching and the waivers are helping teams so make sure you are looking to better your squad! Have a safe and happy thanksgiving filled with tds. TMX out.

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.

Are you guys ready?

Black Friday is coming. Black Friday is coming. I hope you guys are mentally preparing for the sales.

2. Anyone know how to get rid of a family of possums living under my deck?
3. Ducks have a cork screw penis and they like to use it.
4. No one likes to binge watch TV shows like Jeffrey does.
5. The Hour of Power goes down at least once a month at the Macphail house hold. No need to RSVP just show up with some beers.
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...

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.
