My 21st birthday (this saturday will be my 24th).

I was in photography class my junior year of college...  my teacher came in at break talking about these wild rumors she'd just heard about a plane crashing into the trade center and the white house being on fire....

So I check my cell phone that had 5 missed calls on it, all from my girlfriend - crying in the messages - telling me what was up.

I started trying to call my family in NYC - took two hours to get through...

The teacher didn't want to let us leave...after about 45 minutes a bunch of us just told her we were walking out on her class.

Sat infront of the television the rest of the day - hell, the rest of the week.

And DK, it was a tragedy in every sense of the word.  A tragedy for the people who had their lives stolen and a tragedy for every other innocent person who has died since in events set in motion by that day.  Murder is always a tragedy.

Oh, c'mon Zod! Why not tell everyone the good news?


How about some more bad news...

Ditto.  Brees even appeared on my week 2 roster.

But KBZ can have him, I'm going to whip his ass week 1 with or without Drew Brees.

4 more years Zod.

I'm not sweating over the drew brees thing at all.  And I don't see why you gotta keep dragging that nastiness into the conversation.  I know it will be four more years before you win a game of Fantasy Football against me, but why you've got to keep bringing it up is beyond me...

I say the FF thread should stay separate from the NFL thread, or the non FF people will get sick of us talking about it...

Joe Nedney is on IR.  Whoever drafted him might want to pick up a kicker...

RIP Genesis, BTW, has it been confirmed on Bloody-Disgusting.com?

BD.com is usually about 2 days behind on the news since all they do is take news from other websites and re-post it (sound familiar?).  So we won't know until Friday or Saturday.

Well.  Drew Brees ended up on my roster... Not too sure how it worked out but there he is.

I'm sure people have heard of instances where people have recorded ultra-low-frequency audio recordings of voices and other odd phenomena...

I've got a friend who SWEARS that while recording on a four-track with a friend of his at his house caught a voice one time that wasn't either of theirs...

They said that when they were playing back the stuff they'd recorded there some weird noise, so they backed it up and turned up the volume and heard a voice calling for help and saying it was trapped.

He says they were so freaked out that they destroyed the tape - they also sold the four-track a few days later.

Take it for what it's worth, but he's definitely got no reason to make it up and I've been friends with him for almost 10 years.

How exactly do waivers work in FF football?  Teams ranked lower get a chance to steal a guy before he clears?  How would that be determined?  I'm just curious - I don't want it to sound like I'm ready to fight to the death over Drew Brees.

I had a claim in for Brees too - now it says he's pending for the 8th and not the 10th....

We've only got roster spots to add two guys right?

Okay, so what happens now that Jokabofe and I are both after Drew Brees - my page says:

 Waiver 1: --empty-- for D. Brees pending until Sep 10 - [ details - edit priority ]

Does this mean I'll get him or can he steal him or how's this gonna work?  September 10th is after the season starts...not that it makes too much difference...
