This is Supposed to be a Fun Blog...

... but in light of what's going on in the Gulf of Mexico right now I want to take a little side trip.

Once of the things about being part of the Deep South Fantasy Football League is that many of my friends in the league still do live in the Deep South (unlike me, who managed to escape to the world of the beltway in Washington, D.C.). Having said that, so many of them still live in areas where storms like Hurricane Gustav pose a very constant and real threat. I know everyone will make the right choices to protect themselves and their families from what could be a dangerous storm, but I still can't help but worry.

One of the benefits of being an owner in this league is the great friendships that have developed over the years -- and the concern for your friends' well-being that develops along with it. Sometimes, worrying about getting your lineup in on time just isn't enough in comparison to what's going on in the real world...

Well, given the current state of affairs, you may be getting some company up there in the beltway. I'm not so sure how much more of this I can tolerate.
