This is my 150th post. I cant believe people read this but thank you to all who have. It's been a tremendously fun experience posting here and hopefully mildly entertaining too. Ive debated the merits of doing a webcast..... but that seems like an aweful idea.
I have 8 guys in the fall league. AFL not instructs my dear agent friend who doesnt know the difference between the two leagues. Well done.
Some big things in the works.
Will be around

Im in love with Joy Division and I need to watch Control.
I lost some weight the last couple of months and it's fantastic. I also have the second most points in my fantasy football league but I'm 0-2 which reminds me why I hate fantasy sports.
Heres the twitter page and Ill be tweeting the rest of the season+fall league. Enjoy all 19 of you followers

You take the good with the bad in this game. The hard to swallow with what goes down smooth and the sense of validation combined with overwhelming failure. Its a hard balance. Sometimes you wonder why you do this job and other times you're clearly reminded of the things that make you want to do this job. This is a hard business, I knew that from the start, with that being said it does not make things any easier when things go wrong. This was one of the best weeks of my career professionally bar none. Mike Brantley is up in the big leagues and playing his heart out. Its been very rewarding to watch that entire process from HS to now. Someone else however left today. Someone who I considered myself to be very close with. Its hard to know no matter what you do in this game you're expendable. Its crushing even, and this blow is particularly upsetting beyond the obvious professional ramifications. I lost a very dear friend today but such is life. I have a job to do and now im going back to work.
Peace Love Empathy

A beyond rewarding evening for me personally. Michael Brantley, a player I have known since he was drafted was called up to the big leagues today. It was a tremendous moment in my career and I will likely cherish it the rest of my life. He called me around midnight (I'm in LA so 9 pm local) and tells me "We did it". Words cannot describe how I feel right now. Its a sense of overwhelming validation to some extent. Michael is a special individual and I couldnt be more proud of him. I consider him to be a dear friend and I know this day is the start of something really big for him. Enjoy him Cleveland, he's a good one.
