Sorry for the late post. This is the 2nd of 3 leagues that I am in. This league, the World Football League (WFL), has been around since the 80s. I’ve been involved since 1999. It is a scoring only league, making it a little more challenging to prepare for than a traditional fantasy football league that includes points for yards, receptions, TD, etc. It also has a fixed roster, meaning you must roster 3 QB, 5 RB, 6 WR / TE, 2 PK, and 2 DEF. No flexibility allowed. 😦
It’s that time of year again: Fantasy Football season here!!!
Last night, I had my 1st draft of the year (of 3 leagues that I am in). This league, the Frasca Fantasy Football League (FFFL), has been around since 1995. It is a scoring only league, making it a little more challenging to prepare for than a traditional fantasy football league that includes points for yards, receptions, TD, etc. It also has a fixed roster, meaning you must roster 3 QB, 5 RB, 6 WR / TE, 2 PK, and 2 DEF. No flexibility allowed. 😦

God is good.
God still heals today.
The enemy is real. He still works his evil schemes throughout the Earth.
Sometimes people get sick. Cancer and other life-ending diseases run rampant across our world.
Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Terror attacks, heinous shootings, and tragic accidents take the lives of people we know and love.
Sometimes we pray for people with terminal illnesses and they still die.
It sucks and it hurts.

Thought I’d post a couple more photos from our England trip back in 2008. This London’s Westminster Abbey on a rainy, overcast day (i.e. a typical London day). No pictures were allowed in the Abbey though. 😦
Abbey entrance below. Look at all of the people for an early Saturday morning.

As most of you know, I grew up in the St. Louis area. I consider St. Louis to be my “hometown”, and as such, I root for the St. Louis professional sports teams, albeit some more vigorously than others.
Last year marked the first time since 1994 that St. Louis was without an NFL team, which meant I had to find another team to support and call “my own”. Since Champaign is firmly entrenched in Chicago Bear country, it only made sense that I throw my support to Da Bears.
On Friday, our family friend, Barbara “Barb” Jennings went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was 74. She was a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, and loved her Michigan Wolverines. She was affectionately called Grandma Go Blue by her grandkids Zeke, Ethne, and Eydie Waters. She was an amazing woman.
12 weeks ago, I began a journey that has been a long-time coming. For all of my life, I have been overweight. I have been told time and again by doctors that I needed to lose weight. Yet, I ignored them because I didn’t want to give up the food that I enjoyed eating.
After a number of life circumstances, not the least of which was a diabetes diagnosis a year ago, I decided it was time to get serious about losing weight. It began at work.
