Who Loves Hulu?

So I went out and purchased my first tablet — the Vizio that I’ve wanted since January. Benefits?

  • Vizio kicks ass
  • It’s the only tablet with Hulu installed
  • It’s one of the lowest priced tablets available in the market

I’ll let any interested parties know how I like it, once I’ve played with it for a bit. I’m still awaiting the Vizio phone, hoping it’ll be 4G…

While I’m on the topic of Hulu,.. Yahoo, Google Inc, DirecTV and Amazon.com have all expressed interest in purchasing the company. The price will be going from $500 million all the way up to $2 billion, and the end of this week will give a substantially¬†better outlook as to which company seems to be the one in charge.

How will all of this change the TV shows and everything else you love about Hulu? If Google wins, you can expect some sort of Hulu-YouTube merger in the future. That might have the potential for a poor, cluttered user experience. However, I can honestly say that it would be a better way to go than in the hands of Comcast, where Hulu currently resides.

You thought Fitzgerald had it good? Check out Michael Vick

A few weeks ago, Arizona Cardinal Larry Fitzgerald inked in the remainder of his career, 8 years for $120 million. Wow. That makes Eli manning, Philip Rivers, and Albert Haynesworth scratch some heads.

But what beats that? By one-and-two-thirds million dollars a year, Michael Vick yesterday signed with the Eagles, $100 million for only 6 years. Unfortunately I believe he only has 2-3 years left of Vick-style football, as his age wears on.¬† Continue reading “You thought Fitzgerald had it good?

Top 5 Fantasy Football RBs to stay away from

So here I am. It’s Friday night, I’m getting ready for a draft with friends, $20 entry fee. Standard rules. I randomly receive the #1 overall pick. Now, normally I dislike being in the top-5 in a draft. The first 2 or 3 aren’t bad, because the quality of guys there are pretty similar. But landing on #4 or 5 or even 6th draft pick means, not only am I going to miss out on those top-3 RBs, but I then have to wait until deep into the next round for my next pick, in which case usually the top 2-3 QBs are off the board, the top 8-10 RBs might be gone, and definitely the top 2-3 WRs.

But here I am. My opportunity to grab Adrian Peterson #1 overall, and then sit and wait until #20 + #21 for my next two picks. I look at the pre-ranked ESPN selections and think “Well, not so bad, I can grab Tom Brady and Darren McFadden, and start off pretty strong”. I load up my pre-draft choices up until the 4th round, and then go downstairs to make some nachos. Cheesy chips + beer + football? That’s a win.

The last few minutes of pre-draft go by and the draft starts as I’m walking back upstairs with some warm nacho goodness. Tick, tick, tick. Congratulations, you have just drafted Brandon Lloyd. SHITFUCKGODDAMNIT!!! Yes. My #1 overall pick went to a 4th round wide receiver. Coincidentally, he was the lucky recipient of last year’s best wide-receiver, scoring a ton of points for Denver. But this year? Ehh, with the Broncos switching coaches, and the possible likes of Tim Tebow grabbing the starting QB duties this year, it’s not very likely. But here I am, with a 4th round wide receiver as my #1 pick, and having to wait until #20 to actually start fixing my mistake draft. Way to go, Jason. Way, to, go.

It’s not easy to fix a big mistake like that, but it’s possible. Overall, my team is rather solid (in my opinion). I stay away from guys I know are going to be busts for their draft selection, and pick up guys that I feel will be better than they are drafted at. So, without boring you further, here are some guys that I definitely don’t pick up, and try to fix a mistake like mine:¬† Continue reading “Top 5 Fantasy Football RBs to stay away from” Top 5 Fantasy Football RB…
