ESPN 9:15 AM 90 minutes until draft day. Fantasy Football 2005 is about to kick off in full swing. If Peyton is around, do I take him, or go for a top RB? Regardless, I love this stuff. The preparation, the anticipation, the choosing of your team, it is awesome. I’m in a free one on ESPN. Never used them before. It’s me and 9 other guys I’ve never met. All of my friends are in high dollar games. Not for me this year. I still have to have it, cash prize or not.

It’s a sad day when you lose a member of the family. Lucky for us, no one close to us has passed, but one that has been with us for over ten years has moved on. I remember getting her with my brother in Arkansas, she was so dark and comfortable. We had to haggle with guy for a few days, but we got her. She joined the family in 1994.

And now, on this day, Black Beauty has moved on to a mechanic who hopes to fix her up. She’s...
