You don't honestly expect me to believe that there's not a vast internet conspiracy against me, do you? I mean, the signs are everywhere!

After last week, I was inordinately pleased with myself and naturally assumed my rise to the top would be unstoppable. Either I was complacent and allowed those who better understand the beautiful game to best my poorly-educated selection, or y'all are cheating fuckers. I have to assume it's the latter.

First, Texan -- my condolences on the loss of your uncle. Since I haven't a clue what I'm doing, I had previously been following a one-trade-a-week approach and trying to pick folks who were performing well. That's been serving me less well lately, so this week my innovative new strategy is one I've codenamed Operation Sit Tight And See What Happens Because I Have No Better Ideas.

Are You Ready for Some Football?

I just want to point out how exceedingly smug I am at being in the top half of the league after the first week of my very first participation in a fantasy sport of any kind. Clearly, I'm some kind of team-managing genius. I even had the brilliance to notice that one of my players got a red card (Neill, you putz!) and will be disqualified from his team's next match -- and to follow up by transfering him for a different player! That's just how good I am at this. The_Black_Hand, I'll race you to the bottom of the table...

It's never too early to start Spofi's Fantasy EPL!

Hooray! I like beer.

Death by Hamburger.

The proposed graveyard is actually in a pretty nice spot; my cousin pointed it out to me as we were leaving the ECU:CRC game in June. Lots of greenery around, etc - and close enough to hear the cheers of the fans. My cousin's take, and that of the other Hamburgers I talked to about it, was that it's kinda silly and awful expensive, but if that's how you want to spend your cash, whatever.

I haven't been on SpoFi before; I found my way here from the Ask MeFi topic. You folks mind if I join the league? I promise not to win (certainly not intentionally, anyway...)
