Miscelleaneous Miscellany Monday
1. I hate ESPN Fantasy Football with a passion. I’d go so far as to say that I hate it more than when you ask someone “is today (insert day of the week here) ?,” and they respond with “all day!” Ahhhhhh, I HATE it!!!!!
In years past, I’ve used Yahoo sports for all my fantasy needs (I know that came out wrong, but get your mind out of the gutter). However, this year we decided to go with ESPN for our annual Cressey Performance fantasy football league. Not once, but twice, I’ve “set” my team for the week—–only to realize (after the fact) that I didn’t click the “save roster” button.
With Yahoo, you set your line-up, and it’s saved automatically. As it should be. I mean you would think that with today’s technology, ESPN would get their shit together. They seemingly have cameras set up everywhere on the field except up Peyton Manning’s ass, not to mention machines that can predict the wind direction for the 2016 Super Bowl. Yet, despite all of this, they can’t somehow figure out a way to automatically save my fantasy football roster? W to the TF.
2. I know the picture below is a bit blurry, but a client of mine sent it to me this morning from her cell phone.
Hey, if you want to pay someone to stand next to you while you run on a treadmill, go for it. Far be it from me to be judgemental. I just think this is a slippery slope to go down. What’s next? Paying someone to kick you in the nuts?
3. Only 39 more days:
4. I had a few free hours this weekend to catch up on some much needed continuing education- and was able to watch Nick Tumminello’s Warm-Up Progressions Vol. 2: Dynamic Mobility dvd.
True to form, Nick didn’t disappoint. Anyone who’s familiar with his stuff, knows that Nick is one of those guys that definitely thinks “outside the box.” What’s more, his creativity makes him second to none with regards to new and innovative exercises that can be implemented immediately. I put myself through this very dynamic circuit, and felt like a million bucks afterwards.
5. I’m definitely looking forward to Eric Cressey and Mike Reinold’s seminar this weekend, Testing, Treating, and Training the Shoulder: From Assessment to High Performance. We’re hosting it at CP on Sunday, and it should be a great time. While registration is closed, the seminar is being taped and will be available on dvd- so keep your eyes peeled for more information on that front. In the meantime, you can check out Mike’s blog HERE.
6. I wanted to post the recipe for this black bean dip my girlfriend made yesterday, but I just tried to call her and she isn’t picking up her phone. I’ll update this later and post it. In the meantime, check out this picture of Audrina Partridge.
I was having this argument with some of our pro-baseball guys the other day on who was the hottest girl on The Hills, and my feeling is that Audrina is…….hands-down. Then again, I’m a brunette guy so……..
UPDATE: As promised, here’s the recipe for the black bean dip:
1 can of organic black beans
1 quarter of a white onion
a few (5 or 6 if you love it) roasted garlic cloves (or one small raw clove)
2-3 tbsp of sundried tomatoes (in olive oil is better)
a little salt and pepper
some veggie broth to make sure it is moist enough to blend
