Rockies World Series Tickets

today the site that was handling the actual online-only distribution of World Series tickets for Rockies fans, and anybody else wanting to go to the World Series in Denver, WAS WORTHLESS… the site, Evenue.net, didn’t actually crash crash… but it did crawl, and timeout, and sputter for life as baseball fans tried to snag some World Series tickets.

for hours people have felt lucky enough to watch the ‘waiting room’ page refresh endlessly, every 60 seconds, while others only get a brief series of refreshes before being hit with a “page cannot be displayed” error. o yeah, fun way to ‘try’ and buy World Series tickets. something tells me that Paciolan, the company that runs EVENUE.NET is going to lose some future major event contracts… after this frustrating experience.

anyhow… if you want World Series Tickets you can buy them at TicketCity >> World Series Tickets.

granted, Ticket City does list World Series tickets above face value so you’ll be paying more than if you spend the rest of your day… and possibly tomorrow watching your page refresh in the ‘waiting room’ (do you really think that page is ever going to take you to another page that you can actually buy tickets on?? I DON’T!!!)

good luck.

Dallas Cowboys vs Minnesota Vikings

ok so the Cowboys got spanked by the Patriots last week, and T.O. got a little mocking sent his way with reporters munching down on popcorn during after game interviews. anyhow, you gotta admit that Romo only turned the ball over once which was impressive against a very tough Patriots defense. anyhow, my prediction, we’ll be seeing them or the Colts in the Super Bowl this year… and Dallas wins by 3.

but, this weekend, the Cowboys have to get past Adrian Peterson aka the Minnesota Vikings. sure AP had a stellar Sunday last week, but don’t for a second think he’s going to put up those numbers against Dallas. not going to happen, sorry. Even the guys over at the Fantasy Football Blog are expecting Owens and the Dallas Cowboys to put up big big numbers in the air against the Vikings weak pass defense.

Patriots vs Cowboys

this weekend’s big game will have a lot of football fans, especially Cowboys fans and Patriots fans watching the big game in Iriving. i’m so hoping the Cowboys can pull off an upset win. it’s been a long time since the Cowboys have had a team that looks like they’re able to make it to the Super Bowl… and this year they’re looking that way.

a lot of fantasy football’ers have a lot riding on this game too… the big question… are players like Romo, Owens, Barber and Witten going to be able to put up the stellar offensive points that they’ve been managing against much weaker opponents? on the flip side, can the Dallas defense slow down the highest powered offense in Brady, Moss, Maroney, Stallworth & Welker? maybe the guys at fantasy football blog have some ideas! for me… i’m sticking with Romo as a starter even after last week’s turnover fest (i hope he’s got that out of his system)

i really would like to go to Sundays game… but I’m headed to the Big State Festival… decisions decisions :) but if you’re interested in going… i’ve created a new page on my little site dedicated to >> Dallas Cowboys Tickets

have a good weekend!

Head to Head Fantasy Football vs Total Points Fantasy Football

i have to point this out for all you fantasy footballers out there. i’m certainly not a fantasy football expert, i’ve only been playing for 4 or 5 years now, but i’ve cashed every year i’ve played (that’s gotta stand for something). the leagues i played in were ran by a true expert, james from the fantasyfootballblog.net, who has played and plays it all kinds of ways. anyhow, those particular leagues determined a winner off total points earned at the end of the season. there were no head to head matchups or playoffs. i for one prefer that style over the head to head matchups… and not because i’m losing. in fact, so far, i’m 1-0 in both my leagues this year which are head to head format. i just gotta say that while watching and tracking football this past weekend i didn’t care as much about all the games. just my guys games and my opponents players games. that kinda sux… this year i don’t care as much if plaxico puts up 6 td’s a game so long as i’m not matched up against him this week. also… i feel the luck factor becomes a bigger piece of the game. for example… if several of my players are matched up horribly (in real life nfl games) and my fantasy football opponent’s players have great matchups… what am i to do… i can only substitute so much to peak out my projected point earnings… and i can’t prepare my draft for a schedule (against the other fantasy football teams) unless i have an idea of who they’re going to have and when i play them. maybe that’s where a keeper league would be better suited for head to head matchups in fantasy football.

sorry for the rant.. i was just going to email this to james, at fantasyfootballblog.net, and figured i’d share it with all you who might feel the same way… or think i’m just dumb… either way maybe james will take a poll and see what most fantasy football coaches prefer… my vote… total points over head to head.

NFL Fantasy Football 2007-2008

it’s almost that time of year… when those who cannot do… own fantasy football teams!! :)

james runs a great fantasy football blog over at… where else… fantasyfootballblog.net. he and a few other commissioners and team owners keep it pretty well updated with all kinds of fantasy football news. you’ll find NFL fantasy football articles about every subject in the fantasy football spectrum.

i’ve already got catch up on my reading… becaue i see that the fantasy football blog is already running a couple of interesting articles… stuff that espn and espn2 and fox sports have yet to start discussing.

fantasy football draft day is right around the corner and i can say from last years experience… draft day is THE most important day of the season… unless you’ve got a bunch of traders in your league… sometimes you stick with what you pick til the end… because it’s better than the battered up free agents… and a week too late streakers.

so… if you wanna win… get the latest fantasy football news from the fantasy football blog!
