Off to dinner with Ivon and Tio tonight to discuss – what else? – football! Our fantasy football season kicks off tomorrow when our league (Vancouver Unite) holds its 2012 draft.

I’ve done my research and plan to spend most of tonight and tomorrow morning going over the stats and making adjustments to my player rankings. So, any suggestions? Sleepers? Duds? Should I be drafting a QB first?
Today’s blog entry is dedicated to all those who took the time to write about or post pics of their beloved pets in yesterday’s comment section. And, by the way, my sister greatly appreciates all the well-wishes sent Aspen’s way.

Hunh. Here’s something interesting. Of those top ten heartbreaking moments, one was written by Carl Binder (Epilogue), one by Martin Gero (Sunday), one by Paul Mullie and me (The Last Man) and the remaining seven were written by Robert C.
