Spring Training

To paraphrase some genius who was talking about baseball (probably either Tom Boswell or Dorothy Parker) it's nearly time for the five sweetest words in the English language: "Makeup artists and publicists report."

Ponch's Retirement from the game

I realize there have been many rumors in the press, so today I would like to finally put them to an end. I am retiring from the League effective today. I am retiring because I want to spend more time with my family. I retire at the top of my game -- tied for the league championship with Isaac. I just don't think I have it in me to come back for another season. This last season took quite an emotional and phyiscal toll on me and my family. All those hours of searching on the internet. All of those ridiculous email arguments about posts that came in after midnight (or the time when Isaac posted multiple a-listers). I wish you all good luck in the future. My thanks go out to all those in the league who spent so much time tallying the scores each week; and to the Commissioner for her dedication to this league.

P.S. Isaac and I have decided to take our winnings and split them on a nice dinner with Mrs. Isaac and Mrs. Ponch.

We Are Not Alone

It seems that Bill Simmons has inspired numerous fantasy leagues as reported here. Why no love for us?
