I feel like the guy who leaves his dog in the car with the windows rolled up on a 95 degree day. Surely, if blog negligence were a crime, I'd be staring 5-10 right in the face. It's been over a month since I sunk my teeth into a research-based blog entry. Life happens. I started this up last spring as a place to offload my Twins, Vikings, and Timberwolves passions. I wasn't sure how it would evolve, but I distinctly remember making a promise to myself that this would not be a forum for fantasy football, as it would just be way too much to cover. Well, I broke all my New Year's resolutions, and I clearly broke that promise too. The truth is, I was already overextended with the big three before I even gave in to my fantasy football vice. Now, it's swallowed me whole. I'm half expecting Ken Seeley of A&E's Intervention to bust through the door with my wife, my friends, my co-workers, and a roll of duct tape.
As much as I'd love to be covering Jim Thome's epic blasts, I get even more kicks out of breaking down Jerome Harrison's matchup vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If that doesn't make sense to you, pat yourself on the back, you're normal. Because of this "unique" adoration for statistical probabilities, weather patterns, and injury reports, I've stumbled into a wonderful opportunity in the fantasy football industry. So for the next 17 weeks, I'll be parting ways with the blog. This stuff takes a lot of time -- way more than I ever expected. At the end of the day, writing for money just seems to make more financial sense than writing for free. If you've ever read a single article, thank you, I am humbled. After I take my wife on a cruise in February, as payment for my impending 17-weeks of wife negligence (notice a trend here?), I'll be back to dedicating my time to Out of My League. Here's hoping that I have a World Series Championship and a Super Bowl Title to write about.
In the meantime, feel free to check out my work at FantasyVictory.com, where I'll be doing research, analysis, and writing. If you're not already following, the links to my Twitter feed and Facebook blog page are to your right. I will continue to drop daily knowledge bombs there, and I look forward to continued sports interaction with you fine people.
