Fantasy Football ’08

Posted in Uncategorized on August 27, 2009 by garyyfong

A new season is about to begin and the excitement and drama is back. But before it begins, let’s take a moment to recap how disastrous my ’08 draft turned out, particularly at quarterback. In my defense, it wasn’t a bad draft by me. It was the unlikely chances that all these unlikely events all happened to my team. I still did manage to climb back and ended up losing the championship game (that I later found I could have won).

Coming off a record setting career year with most of the offense returning, I used a late first round pick on non-other than Tom Brady. That worked out for about 5 mins into the ’08 season. If I recall correctly, my #1 pick earned me exactly 1 point the entire season.

It’s okay, cuz I have one of the best possible backups that start for many other teams, Carson Palmer! Oh wait… his arm was hurt and called it quits after like 4 games in the season.

I traded to get Brett Favre who was red hot early but unfortunately was barely a fizzle when I finally got him and stuck him into the starter slot.

I was fortunate enough to be able to grab Matt Schuab who was a legit starting quarterback putting up great numbers… until the week when I stuck him into the starter slot and he gets a season ending injury.

My first RB pick Lawerence Maroney also screwed me. Luckily I was smart enough to pick up Steve Slaton from free agency early in the season.

After all that I somehow get into the playoffs and made it to the championship game, which I later found I lost by like 4 points. Sad thing is tho I had Matt Cassel on the bench cuz he was playing in a blizzard and somehow still racked up beaucoup points that woulda won me the championship. Sadder thing is that this wasn’t what caused me the game. I couldn’t have known Cassel would do so well in a blizzard and it wouldn’t have made sense to start him before the game. What got me was me being too lazy to wake up early and check my roster Sunday morning before the games. Had I done so, I woulda seen that T.J. Housh decided not to play and score 0 points. Any of my other receivers would have gotten more than enough for me to win the championship. That’s a FML.

MGS4 Plot Hole? Please explain…

Posted in Uncategorized on January 16, 2009 by garyyfong

MGS4 was a really awesome game no matter what. Truly epic. I’ve played MGS2 and read up on the rest extensively. I’ve even bought the official MGS4 strategy guide AND downloaded the MGS database off the Playstation Store. But there’s still a plot hole that’s been seriously bugging me.

SPOILER ALERT!!! DON’T READ UNLESS YOU COMPLETED THE GAME…

So where did the new FOXDIE come from? Did Drebin get him with it near the begining? We know he worked for the Patriots(AI) and Big Boss said the new FOXDIE is what kills him, Ocelot, and EVA… But how?

Ocelot fought hand to hand with Snake at the end of Act 3 in Europe. If Snake had the new FOXDIE, and it only took moments to kill EVA and Big Boss, wouldn’t Ocelot have died sometime during Shadow Moses at least?

Also, if the Patriots had used Snake to kill Big Boss, how does that make sense? The plot was that Ocelot and EVA tricked the Patriots into thinking the corpse that was burnt (which later we find is Solidus), WAS Big Boss. Why would they need to infect Snake with a newly engineered FOXDIE to kill Big Boss? And why did the Patriots make such a big fuss over Big Boss’s body while they didn’t care much that Solidus’s body was taken by EVA? They persumably knew she had it.

Still a great game tho, I’d just like an explaination cuz it’s buggin me.

Slightly Used DVD Sale!!!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 5, 2008 by garyyfong

*EDIT: Matrix Trilogy & X-Men Trilogy & I Am Legend added

As some of you may know, I have a pretty large DVD collection but now with blu-ray technology, I’ve come to the point where there are a lot of movies which I would like to switch to blu-ray format. So if you see anything on this list you like, feel free to contact me! All of these are in the original box and in great condition because I really do take good care of my DVDs. I think the prices are pretty fair as they are in like-new condition, but if you don’t think so, let me know maybe we can work something out (I’m most likely willing to exchange lunch for a bunch of these 🙂

So here are the DVDs I own that I would eventually like to have in blu-ray (prices on top)… *Disclaimer- All transactions are pending that I find that these movies exist in blu-ray format AND that I can actually purchase them.

$19-
Pirates of the Carr. 1-3
Matrix Trilogy set including Animatrix + Bonus Material

$15-
Mummy1+2+The Scorpion King set
Resident Evil 1-3
X-Men Trilogy set

Transformer 2-disc edition (with the “Optimus Prime robot DVD case)
Troy directors cut special edition (The one with the nice shiny box)
I Am Legend 2-disc edition

$8-
300
Gladiator
Fantastic 4- Silver Surfer
I Robot
Happy Feet
Moulin Rouge (don’t hate)

$5-
Last Samurai
Bravehart
Alexander (but only if I sell off the rest of my “epic” movies so I complete my blu-ray “epic” collection: Last Samurai, Gladiator, Bravehart, Troy, 300)
Crash
Ocean’s 13
Fast and Furious 1
Transporter
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
Speed 1
Minority Report
Lord of War

If you know of any movies that you know I have that are not on this list, I probably don’t really have a desire for them in blu-ray, but you can still try to ask me about them, I might cave.

Halloween!

Posted in Uncategorized on October 24, 2008 by garyyfong

So I’ve been giving my Halloween costume a little thought for a while. But after the costume last year, it’s hard to come up with anything better. I have an idea to make one of something cuz there isn’t one out of this that looks as authentic as the one I had last year, but I just kept putting it off and putting it off and I just realize that this weekend is already Halloween kinda.

So if I don’t got time to get the costume that I was thinking about, what should I be? These are the 4 easy choices since I have the outfit to pull it off already in my closet: Andy Roddick, Kobe Bryant, Tom Brady, or David Beckham. (I had already been David Beckham one year but that was long ago) There are pics of everyone of those people except Roddick in the last post below.
