29 Rounds of Hell

As you may know from reading this blog, I’m heading on vacation this week, starting tomorrow. This is a big deal since it’s the first time I’ve taken one in July for many, many years. That’s in part because I’ve been busy coaching or watching my oldest son in many baseball tourneys in June and July, but also because I’m usually swimming in work. But this year, I’m going to recharge the batteries by taking a week off with the family. So it’s been a hectic week, as I’ve tried to get as much done as I can knowing I won’t be working (at least too much) until 7/21. I have a ton of personal stuff going on too with some construction on the house, office stuff, etc.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
