A Moment on Music…

I keep thinking that my personal music well will be dried up, but things continue to go extremely well for my musical tastes. I’m not really into the alternative bands the young kids are listening to as much lately, although I kind of dig the chick from Paramore, and Jimmy Eat World’s new stuff is pretty good, plus I liked stuff from this past year (Silversun Pickups, Interpol, Bravery, Modest Mouse).

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
