Summerpalooza VI: Return of the Rock Bands - And they say "He's in the Class A Team" (2 Viewers)

Changed my name as I was playing @rockaction and didn’t want to keep rubbing in my lucky win from last year. Also assumed fate would intervene and he’d either curb stomp me or beat me by .o-something.

There's still time.

Not sure how I'd musically express .0 something. I'm sure there's a concept album somewhere about it.

Odd. I thought I was playing you today.

Who the heck am I playing?
 
Mine are playing for the Steelers. I am not confident.

Pickens had a stellar game, but Najee did not.

I've now already got more wins this year than I did all of last.

@facook is next up. You ready, bro?

Love that I'll at worst be 2-1 when Kamara gets back, which will be a boon to my lineup. Waiting on Akers to get traded. Mostert is a must start these days.

I just got incredible deja vu and got deja vu writing about the deja vu.

Cheers to everybody in my alternate universes. The multiverse, as it were!

Puka Nacua - WR - Rams

Shelly Manne - "The Champ"


I bailed on Kareem Hunt which means he'll sign with someone before the weekend.

The name Puka Nacua doesn't provide much to work with musically so stay with me on this one. Puka Nacua--->puka shells--->shells--->Shelly Manne. Manne was an exceptionally swinging West Coast drummer from the 50s through the 70s who played with everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Tom Waits.

Today is the last day I'm still the champ so I'll milk that as well.


Helluva pickup Eephus. I have to admit I never heard of the guy. He wasn't on any of the draft lists I utilize either. Who did you cut for him?

In my auction league, which drafted 2 days before Kupp's setback was announced, someone nominated him for $1 and I said "who or what is that?"

But I kept reading praise for him after the Kupp news, so I took him with my 19th and last pick in my money redraft on Sept. 7.

The fantasy world moves fast.
 
Other than Josh Kelley, pretty much every waiver wire darling of this year so far was drafted or picked up before Week 1 in this league

Summerpalooza with you music nerds is always probably front-to-back the most solid league I play in, year-in and year-out, and I've played in a bunch of them.

Certainly damn impressive.
Can I start using you guys for fantasy advice in my home League? We've been going 26 years and it's all I live for to beat those guys.

I actually like y'all, so that diminshes my competitive motivation. I need to start some rivalries. Maybe Rock? And Blackened Voodoo for beating me when I had a really good week.

Hoo boy. I think your thoughts, inclinations, and guesses would be as good as ours. You've been doing this much longer than I have, and are a board vet. You know the scoop. But we've run decisions through each other from our other leagues before, so feel free to ask.

Sure! I take all comers. My advice is that I'd pick an opponent that gives you fits or alters your conscience in some way. Some hard luck loss will do it. I've got dkp993 in my sights this year. That was actually the funniest loss I've ever had in a fantasy game. I had just announced and half celebrated that all I needed was to hold Darrell Henderson to three yards to win -- if they even got him the ball -- and wouldn't you know it, they hand the ball off to him in garbage time (and they were the team trying to come back, but they just handed off) and he runs for four yards, giving dkp the .04 win. Just truly epic.

But we (you and I, Truebluey) go up against each other next week in Shining Path's league. The league hasn't advanced forward yet on the webpage, but we do.

I actually think that for a sixteen-team league, I've got a reasonable team in that one. Not anything where I'm swooning over my own roster, but it's not terrible. (Which my Summerpalooza team last year was. Did I mention that I looked at my team after that Summerpalooza draft and started wondering what in the carnation I was thinking? I was embarrassed. That was junk. And then I knee-jerked and cut everybody who wound up being good? Ay de mi. Awful, embarrassingly drafted and managed year.)

I am very much looking forward to putting up 180 on you when we play. Wash the stain of that .04 way. 😉
 
We roll with Jalin Hyatt tonight. He's projected to score 3.33 points.

In the words of Redd Foxx, "This is the big one, Elizabeth."

🤢 0 WR points. Somehow a D/ST has a turnover and two sacks, holds an offense under 150 yards, and scores in the single digits. UGH. :yawn:

I knew it would end badly. The Waddle problem left me up a creek a bit. I know how I could have played it, and played it more to the vest, but I chose this way.

The wrong way.
 
Oh yeah I added Nelson Agholor

Look out, world

More Danzig?
Be honest, before the season how many of realized Agholor was still in the league?

At least it gives an excuse to post this again:
I didn’t know he was a Raven until I saw him on some big screen charity promo at the game
But Lamar didn’t seem to mind throwing to him last week after OBJ got himself murdered. Not 23 anymore oldBJ
 
My shtick this year is the player sharing their first or last name with an artist or song title.

Love it. I have no schitck this year. Just figured I'd go with lay-ups.

eta* Oh, and I meant I would have gone with Hepcat from that soundtrack. Just sort of giving an example of how my mind was working. But I didn't know the name thing was your schtick.

It was my schtick too. Except for the D. That's why my Broncos song is by the Stone Poneys.
 
If Christian Watson plays, I'm sticking with my weak-*** horses. If he doesn't play I'm swapping out the entire WR rotation. The kind of things you can do with a terrible team.

I'll stick with Pitts but watch him get outscored by Hurst, with the red rocket in
