Channel 4 News League Recap, Week 2.

I really don’t know how the hell you do the “screen capture” thing that others do to get the actual Yahoo! board. I suspect I’m computer-stupid on that one.

12. Das Smoot 0-2-0 .000 179.36 L-2 11 2

OK, so there are your actual rankings, and I’m still in first place. Let’s review last week’s action:

The Rainmakers over Brady’s Fuck Trophy: Marion Barber III’s 24 points carry me to victory, as the Patriot offense nukes OMDQ’s SD defense. I believe the Fuck Trophy may have a QB controversy to deal with, as Brett Favre outplayed Marc Bulger while sitting on his bench.

Bad Newz Kennels over Supreme Silver Sharpie: Passing TDs count for six in this league, so Carson Palmer’s 50-point total and Texans WR Andre Johnson’s 20+ on Sunday engineered a bad beat for TSW and gives Marco a much needed win.

Pennsyltucky Power! over Das Smoot: Pete gets a second straight week of underachieving LaDainian Tomlinson and Drew Brees, and has to eat a 0-2 start as a result. Matt Schaub earned more points on the pine for Das Smoot, and eerily, LaMont Jordan has more fantasy points than LDT right now on the season. Yeesh.

I Love Lamp over I Roll W/ Chris Henry: Tom Brady’s top notch performance can’t help Larry, as both his running backs (Laurence Maroney and Maurice Jones-Drew) underachieve points-wise for yet another week. AA gets enough respectable performances and a 19-point day out of Willie Parker to take it to the house.

Jazz Fluties over Benoit’s Day Care: The Flyers Fieldhouse guys might want to either put a hit out on Andy Reid or offer his kids a couple of guns and some more drugs at this point: some competent play calling by the Eagles would have Donovan McNabb with a higher point total than 9.60 and would have earned them a win in what turned out to be the closest match of the week. Amazing WR games out of Steve Smith, Chad Johnson, and Joey Galloway, but the difference is Donny Mac.

Haywood Jablome (formerly the Mr. Beldings) over Smoot’s Fingercuffs: Ted wins on the backs of Tony Romo, Terrell Owens, and the Unexpected Performance of the Week out of Jamal Lewis to send the Cuffs to 0-2.

Week 3 Match-ups: Come this time next week, the number of unbeaten teams will be halved, as yours truly and the Fluties square off, and the Lamp takes on Haywood. The Smoot teams will take each other on to see who can avoid the league’s cellar. News Teamers will beat up on each other in another match, as the Pennsyltucky Power meets the Fuck Trophy to see who will be 2-1. Benoit’s Day Care looks to get to 1-2 against the Kennels, and the Sharpie will attempt to cross out Chris Henry’s entourage.

  1. Can I just say that I was an idiot for leaving the Vikings D on the bench?

    I was an idiot.

  2. I really don’t know how the hell you do the “screen capture” thing that others do to get the actual Yahoo! board. I suspect I’m computer-stupid on that one.

    On a Windows machine, hit CTRL-Print Screen with the browser window active, and it will copy the entire visible part of that window. Then open up Microsoft Paint, CTRL-V to paste the contents of the clipboard, and save it as a .jpg.

    From there, open up the .jpg with whatever picture/photo doctoring program you have installed and crop out all the stuff you don’t want. Re-save, upload to the image host of your choice, and you’re golden.

    On a Mac or Linux machine…who the hell cares?

    — Ajax.

  3. TSW, you’re winning the “Bad Benchings” trophy so far right now.

    Ajax – thanks, I’ll see if I can make it work next week.

  4. I think Norv Turner was in charge of my fantasy team this week.

  5. On a Windows machine, hit CTRL-Print Screen with the browser window active, and it will copy the entire visible part of that window.

    I think it’s ALT-PrtScn to get just the active window in Win9x.

    On a Mac, it’s Apple(Cmd)-Shift-4 and then you manually select what you want and it saves it to the desktop.
