      It's time for my yearly post on the forums and unfortunately for everyone, I'm going to be insufferable because no one was able to beat me in either of the two fantasy hockey leagues run through this site last year. Yep, to quote the horrible horrible John Cena - "The Champ is HERE!" Yearly renewals went out earlier today so some of you have already received the invite to one of the two leagues. And apparently I beat the resident Canadian @BigNiceJohn so badly last year that he has lost all interest in hockey and never wants to do fantasy again. That or maybe it's because his team hasn't won a Cup since '67 and they resorted to hiring a blogger to help them with statistics. I'm obviously going to say it was me.

      We will once again do the Depth League where I among other will troll your favorite team and draft everyone down to the 3rd and 4th liners just so you can't have them. But really, for those not in the know, this is where we draft 4 full lines, 6 D, 2 goalies, and we'll even throw in some bench spots for your hoarders out there. This year I've changed the IR spots to IR+ spots so that someone who gets put on Day-to-day with a broken leg only to be put retroactively on the IR 2 weeks later doesn't screw you over horribly. This is the original league. The fun league. The league that will make you cry if you lose to someone in Texas...league. I know we'll have at least one open spot due to BNJ, but if you're interested let me know. Draft will be on September 21st at 8:15pm Central time.

      I'm also bringing back the auction draft head-to-head league. This was pretty enjoyable, but I can't stress this enough: IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THE DRAFT TIME, DO NOT BOTHER SIGNING UP. I'm serious. You're going to get screwed on your team. I know, I've seen me do this to people. Basically what happens in this draft is each drafter nominates a player for everyone to bid on and then everyone has a chance at that player as long as they have enough cash to pay for him. You think Roberto Luongo should be the first player to be picked in the entire draft? Go for it! You think that you can have people spent a lot of money on other players so you can grab Sidney Crosby on the cheap? Go for that too. We have 2 spots at each forward position with an extra utility position for whatever you want, 4 defensemen, and 2 goalies. Same IR+ designation. Draft for this league will be just before the other league so we can knock everything out at once. September 21st at 6pm Central time. Last time to say this, if you can't make this draft time do NOT tell me you are interested. It will be extremely difficult to win given the team you're going to end up with.

      If you were in either league last year invites have been sent so login, otherwise let me know your interest below. I'll give about 10 days before I start trying to contact people to see if they are in or not and then dish those spots out to others.

      Listen up everyone, it's that yearly time where I come out of hiding and run fantasy hockey again. Don't know me? Doesn't matter, just know I probably don't like you. The yearly renewal invites have been sent to everyone who participated in the RvB Depth League last year. For those who may recall, this is where you essentially draft an entire hockey team and then forget about it a month into the season because you realize you suck at drafting and your team is horrible and that you wish you were a snobby Canadian like @BigNiceJohn and took good Canadian boys like yourself and not enigmatic Russians who either score lots of points or drink a handle of vodka. Last year's winner was @puckplayer, whom you probably haven't seen around too much as we were so pissed we banished him to the middle of the ocean, fucking asshole. Anyway, I digress. As you can probably tell we enjoy long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners, smack talk, and not trading you Sidney Crosby (we may make jokes about him, but we do have an IQ slightly higher than that of the contents of your cat's used litter box). Deadline will be two weeks for returning players and then I'll open up extra spots to anyone else.

      That all being said, I want to run a second league again. We've discussed keeper leagues, but the talent discrepancy gives some owners extreme advantages each season. What I want to do is either bring back the Head-2-Head league or do another regular Roto draft, but have it done auction style. Please find the poll below (hint: it's the big box with clickable buttons) and let me know what you are interested in.

      Good Morning everyone. For those who don't know who I am, I'm the reigning RvB Depth League fantasy hockey league fucking champion, that's who I am. With Fehr and Bettman locked in a room and coo-ed to sleep by the soft tones of Federal mediation, they both awoke to agree upon the framework of a new CBA. This means that among other things, we can finally play fantasy hockey again. I have renewed our league, but know that many people have become jaded over a 3rd lockout in 18 years and thus may not want to have fun with us (fuck you) or may not have the time or desire given life (I understand, but this is the one thing I come back for every year, so suck it up). With a FAST approaching start date, I have set the draft for Jan 13th at 7pm Central time. I'm going to have a deadline of Jan 9th at midnight for renewals, at that point I'm going to open this up to anyone who is interested in playing. The only requirement is that you actually play. No collusion trades, no dropping players just because, and no apathy if you aren't winning.

      Background on the league:
      We do what we gently refer to as a depth league. This means the maximum number of allowable spots by Yahoo. You draft a full hockey team (4 lines, 3 D-pairs, 2 goalies, and a bench). Scoring is roto and we have a 12 person limit. It will fill up as it does every year. So if you were in last year and want to be again, go sign up. And remember that we all just want to have fun. Well that and beat @BigNiceJohn.

      Also, Red Wings suck.

      For those that do not know about Movember, it's when men around the US shave their faces and then grow some wicked mustaches to grow prostate cancer awareness and raise money towards research. This year since I have a job where I don't have to look all professional like, I'm going to showcase my follicley (sp?) challenged face. Yes, I'm pretty sure that both Sidney Crosby and Derek Holland have showcased better facial hair than me, but I'm still going to give it a go.

      For those interested in helping out and donating, here is a fabulous link (now with less calories!). I'm sure I'll post updates so you can laugh and laugh. Plus, I need some styling tips as I have no idea what type of mustache I should grow.

I bought an arcade game (NBA Showtime/NFL Blitz 4-player cabinet). I should hit level 79 karma with this post. I like turtles.

      Oh ya, my house was hit by lightning while I was gone too. That's shit's expensive. Avoid it if you have the option.

      So this weekend I lost a bet regarding the Stars/Flyers game. Unless y'all follow me on Twitter you probably haven't seen any former bets of mine. Well, I don't want to whore myself out to everyone, but apparently on of you *cough Vicki cough* has said I'm extremely strange for my latest one. Have I really lost my mind that much since I left you people?

      You be the judge.

      Oh my lordy I do love Sangria. That sounds like sex in my mouth. And I love sex in my mouth :o
      I am seriously gonna haul a bunch of my friends up to your lovely place of work some day and eat lots of food and drink lots of booze until we're all fat and happy and inebriated.
      I also found out that there is another Delaney's Irish Pub, but it has no relation to my Delaney's, AAAAND apparently we're opening up another Delaney's in Ft. Worth some time soon.
      I've been doing pretty fabulous lately, ready to start school but I still gotta wait a month damnit. I recently sold my soul to Fallout 3, and I believe I'm the clear winner in that deal.
      So since I decided to drive metal bits through my bits, I didn't get to eat real food for a good six days. Thank the gods for Odwalla....
      Anyways, when I finally could attempt chewing, oh man I went and got some Eggs Benedict. Oh the buttery eggy hammy goodness...*swoon*
      I also found a really awesome Hibachi/Sushi joint in my area. I had a craving for an Udon Noodle Bowl and me and google had a quick chat about that and I discovered Tokyo House. I had Gyoza and a Chicken Udon Bowl, it was exactly what I wanted and I felt like getting up and dancing on the cold Hibachi grill. On top of that, my magnificent cleavage scored me free drinks all night from our darling waiter. I think my favorite part about that is my friend Bailey was with me and she had to pay for her drink. HAHAHAHA. They serve Kobe beef there, a whopping 48 dollars a plate...I'm considering treating myself to that on my birthday in the fall.....but who knows?
      Anyways, this is turning into a novella, so I'll cut it short. How are you doing? By the way, brunch is like the greatest thing ever, and just thinking about it is making me super duper hungry.
