Well, our Toronto Farewell tour officially kicked off tonight. Not sure when, exactly, we’re leaving, but I imagine it’s somewhere between next week and December, depending on how quickly several outstanding issues can be addressed and put to bed. In the meantime, I’ve lined up a slew of goodbye and see-you-later dinners that, if necessary, will take me to December.
Anyway, tonight we went to dinner with our friend Ryna. Our destination – well, I’ll let you guess.
And, chances are, you guessed correctly…
Okay, yes, you guessed it. We went to Scarpetta…
Our Fantasy Football league (R.I.P. Stargate) kicked off its second season this weekend (well, technically, Thursday night) and, despite the many underperformers on the roster, my Snow Monkeys looked poised to pull of a week #1 win over the Surrey Monkey Poachers. I’m up 10 points heading into the Monday Night double-header where our final two running backs face off: my Knowshon Moreno vs. his BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
I dumped Manning and started Romo but, in the coming weeks, will keep my eye on my back-up QB, Fitzpatrick, who positively decimated the hapless Chiefs. My big guns – Jahvid Best, Adrian Peterson, Hakeem Nicks, and Roddy White – disappointed but I’m counting on them to bounce back next week when I take on I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and their trash-talking GM Daryl.
Just as I was just about to hit “publish” on today’s entry I read the news of Andy Whitfield’s passing (R.I.P. Andy Whitfield). He was a wonderful actor whose breakout role as the titular character in Spartacus: Blood and Sand won him well-deserved praise. Very sad.
