Just as a whole I would like to thank some of you... LOL...I guess you guys should form a " new league", and use the name that got Warren Sapp fired.  
 
 LOL, based on you waiver picks. It doesn't matter though, all the solid guys are taken anyways.

 
So I screwed up 1 line up.(maybe 2) Considering I have NEVER purposely lost a game, or missed a line up, I consider that forgivable.
 
I still got Sydney Rice or Josh Gordon who helped my team win this week.

I wish I had the fantasy knowledge that you have mr. Never won a championship. I can give a shit if your in first place, you will find a way to fuck it up. I'm coming back from 5 games back, get ready. Stop pumping your fists, you have not done shit yet.

Joe,
 
First, just to get some of the housekeeping duties out of the way:
 
I do believe this belongs in the shit talking section, not the "just talk thread". Call me crazy, but I do think there is a twinge of sarcasm/"told you so" in your post and therefore it should be viewed as such.
 
Second, go fuck yourself. If you thank me one more time for not taking that deal, I will personally drive to your home and rip that dolphin out of your triple-pierced left ear. Not that having a triple-pierced ear is weird or anything.
 
Third, I am very confident this post should be in the shit-talking section. I ask administrators here to move this as to not disrupt the flow of previous conversations or Joe's period.

Oooooh!!! Someone rattled the Rosenhaus cage!!!
 
I'm not sure where i stand on this. I didn't get the same sense of sarcasm out of Joe's thank you. Joe has always seemed like a straight shooting, stand up kind of guy, who would earnestly thank someone if he felt that he/she deserved it, which obviously is warranted in this particular situation.
 
Or we could just start a sarcasm only thread.

Here is a problem with not being able to change line ups with the Thursday game. I am playing Julio Jones and with this potential storm I would probably want to play Lance Moore instead, too early to tell but an issue.

I hear ya Danny, and there are many more issues than that. We all just have not brought them up and/or accept them. I have seen some things too, but just minor things/injuries-really.  
 
About the storm:  Most of the east coast will get hit with this "SUPER STORM" Wash D.C. is supposed to get 10-12" of rain over the weekend, couple that with very high winds.  
Rare exception, but it happens, It will always be something, minor or not.

Not hearing any word of the game in Philly being in danger of cancellation at this point Danny. On an a similar note regarding "Frankenstorm" ( no pun intended Gonzo). My family and I had the pleasure of a visit from Sandy Wednesday during our " vacation" in Jamaica. We enjoyed her hospitality immensely and are reacquainting again in thr Philly area on Monday.
    On a serious note, I hope and pray for the safety of all of my fellow comrades and their families in the coming days. In particular Frank and Dave in Jersey as they might see he brunt of the storm. Take care and be safe!

Wow Dave, I never knew you had a sensitive side. I'll show my sensitive side, Joe, I hope you lose power for a freaking month! We should all be so lucky so we don't have to see your posts of how great you are.

Wow.  Instant classic.  Good to hear from Mark on the Trash Talk Thread (sort of, as he indicated) -- it's such a rare event.

Well kids, relieved to report that although 6 trees around the house are sleeping now, none of them used my property as a bed. Nasty night last night. Many others in Toms River went from waterfront property to houseboats. So we were very, very, very lucky.

Glad to hear, so far, that you guys back East are doing well.  Have not been able to get through to Mama Steg... I am guessing the power is out and, thus, also her phone line through the cable company, and her cell phone battery is probably drained and she cannot recharge it. Ah, well, this too shall come to pass...

We made it through safe and sound as well. Easily the worst storm I have ever seen. We lost 2 trees, but no major issues for us.  
We lost power last night 45 degrees outside and am now at my brothers house. We may have to spend the night. He only lives 10 minutes from me, so no real issue.
 
You will talk to MAMA Steg soon I'm sure. Stay safe everyone.

Power is really scarce all through NJ Steve. It may even be another day or two before it comes back. And with long term loss of power comes loss of cell towers. Cell service is very spotty as well. Hopefully mom gets her power back soon.  
We're luck enough to have power so we've become the local motel. 6 folks staying with us tonight.
 
Once again, very, very lucky.

I now have 14 people staying here. It looks like a shelter. Power is still extremely scarce and now it looks like fuel is in short supply. Oh oh.  
 
Anyone need firewood?

I thought this was worth sharing since many of you know her very well.  There has been a sighting of the feisty one, Mama Steg.  Electricity is still out there.  I called in to the office of her apartment complex.  The super has seen her.  All in all, they are not much worse for the wear, actually.

Really good news Steve - glad to hear Mom Steg is well. For the rest of you GBRFLers fighting through this - thoughts and prayers for sure. Hope the power and your normal life will get back up and running ASAP.

Update... I actually was able to speak to her briefly. The super went over and let her use his cell phone to call me. That was very nice of him. Her cell phone is actually charged. It is, as Frank suggested earlier, that her cell phone service is out.

Yes, and by all means focus on the important things. Fantasy football is low priority. Consider submitting your lineups optional this week. ... Oh, yea, and good luck. ...

This has got to be a record...  I have a .318 winning percentage (at this point I cannot even finish with a winning record), but just a -42 points differential! I know others had excruciating weeks this week, but this has been an EXCRUCIATING season for the old Stegger...

On the flip side, Joe has a 70% winning percentage (16-7) and is only +54 on the points differential!!!  Yikes!!!
