American League Champions...in Texas?

That's right, the Rangers have finally done it. They struck through the heart of the evil empire and drove that stake in till it was all said and done. They did it with the snowman at the helm, and they did it with Josh Hamilton being intentionally walked a record number of times.

During the regular season they were the walk off kings (see picture), but in the post season, they got on teams early and often. That's a true sign of a winner. I'm proud of the team. My family has been cheering for the Rangers for decades, and it has been tough the last 10 years, but our love of baseball has been completely revived with this 2010 season. I mean, you can check out the Fox news feature on my grandfather, Zonk (here). This aired about an hour before game time yesterday.

Anyway, I'm trying to prep for the finals of an intramural negotiation competition, so I don't have too much else to say other than, I'm ready for games 3-4-and if necessary 5 of the world series to hit DFW. The Rangers were awesome this year.

It's the old LT

Well, Scoregasm steamrolled the Coital Cadavers this week, and has moved into a 4 way tie for 2nd place, but sit 4th based on points. There isn't much to dwell on with regards to my week 4 dominance. There were two guys that showed they still have it. Terrell Owens and LaDainian Tomlinson were playing like it was 2006. And it was a huge pay off for me.

I also got some good play from Drew Brees, DeAngelo Williams, and Eddie Royal. I also used my waiver spot to pick up Brett Favre who had been cut by the very shitty Come Get Some. I swept in and grabbed him after I heard the news of the Randy Moss trade. I think this will be a major trade chip soon. If it's not, having Favre on my roster won't be a bad thing.

This week, I get to face T-Bag. He is historically the worst fantasy football owner in our league. And he currently sits 0-4 and at the bottom of the standings. Expect me to be telling you next week about my dominance and becoming 4-1 after 5 weeks of play.

This is turning into a good fall. Go Rangers! Make my bet last January on you to win the World Series a good bet.

Funny of Die

That's right, I want to spread the word about some of the things I write about. I have begun posting some of my older blogs to the Internet phenomenon website, and there will be added bonuses as well.

Negro Willie and I plan on starting a series of webisodes in which we interview celebrities and sports stars. We will have to start small, but may have the opportunity to move up. We will also be reviewing movies, books, cigars, and alcohol. Anyway, there isn't much more to this blog, but for people who may read this, go over to this link: http://www.funnyordie.com/blogs/a14f4a62a4/the-lift and leave comments and like it and hopefully I will be featured by the website. Don't forget, you can like me on facebook, and you can do that here: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/Captain-Awesome/58404243392?ref=ts.

Thanks, and stay awesome.
