    Fantasy Football: Back Where I Belong

    October 24, 2012

    Sorry, but I have to gloat for a moment while the opportunity exists. (Lord knows this may be the only week the opportunity is there.)

    After a rough 0-2 start, the Instant Breakfast has rallied — like the champions they are — with five consecutive wins and we’re now right where we belong: first place, baby!


    As it turns out, that 0-2 start was kinda helpful. I had first dibs on free agents and was able to grab Redskins RB Alfred Morris, who’s currently the No. 3 overall RB in our league’s scoring system.

    It’s a long season and there’s a lot of football left, but I think I’ll dust off my fantasy football wall plaque just to be safe.


    We are the Champions … Again!

    December 29, 2010

    All hail the Instant Breakfast!

    After a couple seasons of bordering between mediocre and pretty good, the Instant Breakfast is back where we belong — Champions of the Search Engine Football Challenge fantasy football league. WOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I beat Julie (from FindLaw, I think) in the title game this week by about 17 points to claim my first title since winning back-to-back crowns in 2006 and 2007.


    So that’s three titles in five seasons, which means I think I can proudly and safely continue to display this on the wall in my office:

    Long live the Instant Breakfast!


    A New Kind of Sunday

    December 6, 2009

    For the first time … I don’t even know how long … I didn’t rush to turn on the early football games when we got home from church. I didn’t fire up the computer to check how my fantasy team was doing and what I’d missed. I didn’t care about anything other than the Seahawks game, and that didn’t start until 1:15 pm.

    Here’s why:


    Cuz my fantasy team is really, really bad. That little red circle means I’m eliminated from playoff contention. I don’t think I’ve ever been out of the playoffs this early. Not sure I’ve ever missed the playoffs, for that matter.

    But dang, what a fun Sunday it’s been! And the Seahawks ended up winning on a last-second FG. Not too happy about the Instant Breakfast being so terrible, but I could get used to Sundays like this.


    I Like My Fantasy Football Team

    September 8, 2009

    We drafted tonight (Monday) for our SEO fantasy football league and I’m feeling a lot better about the Instant Breakfast this year than I did last season. Here’s my team:

    If Tomlinson and Portis stay healthy, I think I’ll be in good shape. I drafted Santonio Holmes earlier than Julius Jones, but switched them for week one because I like Jones at home against the Rams more than I like the Steelers taking on Tennessee.

    I haven’t compared my roster to the other teams in our league, but I’m thinking I’ll be right in the hunt at season’s end. And if all goes well, I’ll be winning my 3rd title in 4 years and living up to that Fantasy Football Legend sign that’s hanging on my office wall.


    All is Right with the World

    October 9, 2008

    I know the economy is in trouble (“tanking” seems to be a common description) … and the election has people on edge … things seem to be spinning out of control (they’re really not) … and everyone’s nervous about the general state of the world.

    No worries. All is right with the world. My fantasy football team, the Instant Breakfast, is back in 1st place.


    Rest assured, this is the normal way of events. I’m the two-time defending champ in this fantasy football league, which is made up of my fellow marketing peers. Yep. I’m feeling good. No spinning out of control here. No nerves. Not on edge. Just the usual — including a four-game winning streak after losing in Week One.

    I’m just doing my part to live up to the sign that hangs on my office wall……
