“After all, you know, there are worse things in life than death. I mean, if you’ve ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman, you know exactly what I mean. The key here, I think, is to… to not think of death as an end, but think of it more as a very effective way of cutting down on your expenses.”— Boris Grushenko

I love fantasy football…and I have always been a fan.

James Harden, recently traded from Oklahoma City to Houston, should have taken a lesser deal to stay with the Thunder. With the Rockets he’s going to be an extremely rich guy for a middle of the road team. With OKC, and for slightly less money, he could have been playing for a title and relevant for the next ten years.

So the Dodgers get flashy new ownership, they spend all the money, and the San Francisco Giants win the World Series…

Not Colorado, not Texas, not Kansas City or Milwaukee…the San Francisco Giants.

I’m waiting for the “Moneyball” people to come out and claim the Giants as a victory for their philosophy…Funny how all the team’s winning the World Series these days are “Moneyball” teams, but the ultimate “Moneyball” team, the Oakland Athletics, hasn’t been to a World Series since 1991.

Great pitching seems to take care of everything.

So as I’m watching the Rams play the Patriots in London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday, I thought it was interesting that the “Assassins Creed III” video game commercial kept popping up.

You might not know about the video game, but you might recognize the commercial. It’s the one that shows all of the British redcoats being killed in the Revolutionary War…And it was being shown repeatedly while the NFL is playing a football game in England.

Wow…time to sing “God Save the Queen”…

Note to Lane Kiffin: Can you please another Pac 12 game, I would really like to see Marquise Lee play in the Holiday Bowl this year.

You want to see the best title bout and not have to pay hundreds of dollars for tickets? In fact, I can get you tickets to this weeks heavy weight showdown that promises to be a fight to the finish. It will be filled with spills, thrills, and chills, for 48 minutes. Truly it will be show with everything but Yul Brynner.

And it will only cost you seven bucks…(SAY WHAT?)…I said will only cost you seven bucks…

In one corner it will be South El Monte, in the other El Monte…I’m betting you won’t see anything better this year…Outside of a “Walking Dead” season finale.
