00a794.jpgWhile Alikat was boob slapping in her bikini in Hawaii, I was doing the same in America’s heartland on a farm, with a bunch of cows…in a bikini, because that’s just how I roll.

I love my little rural vacations because there’s no cell service, no internet, and the satellite TV goes in and out when there’s a bit of weather - and if you were following the news over the last week, there was quite a bit of “weather” in the Midwest - but 12 days is about my limit and I’m actually glad to be back in L.A. with a ton of emails and messages to delete.

Anyway, there were some games the last two weekends. Some teams won, other teams lost but the big news is that my fantasy football team chose our league’s Super Bowl to go absolutely cold. After a season average over 100 points, we scored 42 points in the big game!

The other big news is whether or not it is the Giants’ responsibility to field a their starters on Saturday against the Patriots in what amounts to a “meaningless” game for them.

What idiot came up with this debate?

Of course it’s the Giants responsibility to play their starters on Saturday against the Patriots. Forget that I bleed Big Blue and that I can’t stand the Pats. The Giants are a fucking professional NFL football team. It’s their job to win games, not rest for the playoffs. Football is a game of heart. Resting is heartless.

It’s not as if Eli and the G-Men are a sleek, offensive powerhouse clicking on all cylinders going into the playoffs and could stand having a week’s rest to regroup from the vicious regular season. They are a wild card team riddled with questions and led by the retarded Manning. They might be making the playoffs but this isn’t a Super Bowl team. The best thing for their playoff chances is to beat the Patriots, gain some confidence and momentum, both of which are incalculably advantageous going into the post season.

I haven’t done a study but I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that the convention of resting players going into the playoffs results in less playoff wins.

So please Tom Coughlin, please play the game on Saturday as if it means something because it does. It means that you’ve got some fucking stones. This is my hope.

However, my prediction is that you will not. You will rest the starters, the team will lose to the Pats, go on to lose in the wild card game and you will lose your job.

Just remember, it doesn’t have to be this way.

(In what could turn out to be an ironic twist to this story, the Patriots B Team beat the Giants 27-20 in the pre-season.)

It’s fantasy draft time for all of the leagues for the upcoming season. I had my first draft this past weekend where I had the 11th pick out of 12.

My team:

Tony Romo
Larry Fitzgerald
Deion Branch
Santonio Holmes
Willie Parker
Travis Henry
LJ Smith
Josh Brown
Ravens DST
Thomas Jones
Jay Cutler
Ben Watson
Mike Bell
Amani Toomer
Adrian “Not the Viking” Peterson

I think I did okay, considering I picked 11th, but I might have reached for Jay Cutler and L.J. Smith in the middle rounds.

I have another draft tonight where I pick 7th out of 10.

Ugh…

Anyway, I had the idea that we should have the Hot Chicks Fantasy League where twelve teams run by female sports bloggers battle it out for fantasy football supremacy!

We are extending an open invitation to the first 11 female sports/football bloggers who drop us a line through our contact form. Please give us your name, email and blog url and I will forward you a link to join our ESPN league.

It’ll also be a nice change of pace to not play with guys who try to take advantage of us and then cry when we beat them.

For some strange reason, neither C.J. nor AliKat are into fantasy football so currently, I’m the only owner in the league.

Also, this league will be a bit different from others as we be drafting a head coach too!

Once we get the league filled, we will determine a good time for an online draft.

We have done some scouting and so far, we are tagging the three chicks at NFLGoddess to join.

Kick-off is in ten days so sign up now!
