Fantasy Football Draft 2016


Fantasy Football Draft 2016
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for August 28, 2016


On Wednesday night, our good friends the Castor family came over for a night of family fun and a little BBQ action.


We started by playing some bags games, but the kids were a little too competitive for the adults so we decided to shut that down and take it inside.


After dinner, we introduced them to the Vive and watched them as they battled our virtual enemies.  They were naturals and were able to take out a lot of bad guys for us.  It was nice spending the evening with the Castor family!


On Friday night, I drove to Cottage Grove to connect with several of my old friends from Nor-Tech.  It was time for our annual Fantasy Football draft and I was quite excited to be there.  Are you ready for some football?


Steve "Cuds" Cuddihy has been our commissioner for about 10 years and really pulls out the stops with our annual draft.  We have an auctioneer running the draft and all sorts of electronics set-up to give us a high tech display to keep us all updated on where we stand.  I'm pretty sure I'm gonna win this year.


As you can see, I was pretty fascinated with my roster at the end of the evening.


My team is the Crippled Monkeys.  I was happy to get my favorite player Adrian Peterson along with a bunch of other super stars.  It's definitely looking like things are leaning pretty heavily in my favor.


On Saturday night, Miss Sheri and I headed to Mystic Lake Casino to watch Jay Leno perform comedy.


Jay was looking like he'd aged a bit and told quite a few jokes that were obviously written more than a decade ago, but all in all he was great.  You could tell he was a master of his craft.  He pulled out story after story for more than an hour and never missed a beat.  He was actually better than I was expecting which made for a pretty fun night of comedy.
