I give up...

No more fantasy football results. I can't stand the misery, and no one really wants to read about it. Instead...

A movie review!

Casino Royale: 3.25 Stars. If this movie has anything going against it, it's 30 years of megalomaniacal villians. Compared to Ernst Blofield's dreams of world domination, Le Chiffre's debt repayment plan doesn't really measure up, but since this is really a background film, it's forgivable. Having said that, Daniel Craig is one badass Bond. Judi Dench is a magnificent M. Eva Green is lovely. The action was awesome. I'm hoping Jeffrey Wright gets an expanded role as Felix Lighter in the next film. I also wouldn't mind seeing a new Q. Solid film; bring on the next one!

Weeks 8 and 9: Exercises in futility.

My Eagles lost again. 4-4 does not a playoff team make, but I'm always hopeful.

I was having problems with blogger 2 weeks ago, so you get a twofer today. Hopefully week 10 (a.k.a. the Eagles post-bye victory over the Redskins) will see my teams wallow a bit less in the mire. Barb's still got some promise, but outside of the Phalanx, I'm pretty much done for the year in all leagues.

Week 8
AnyGivenSunday2006: Don't Be Denied denied Philadelphia Phreak (2-6) 65-51
UIUCAAL: Philadelphia Phalanx (4-4) bombed Old English 117-86
WFL: Heir Jordyn crowned Barbie's Bruins (5-3) 83-41

WFL: The Rockets torched The Senators (4-4) 106-62
farleysfootball: Moshville Lightning struck Philadelphia Fear (2-6) 50-42
farleysfootball: Red Sox beaned Bookworms (3-5) 47-26

Week 9
AnyGivenSunday2006: Philadelphia Phreak (3-6) roased the Dragons 137-113
UIUCAAL: Tusken Raiders gaffi stuck Philadelphia Phalanx (4-5) 91-67
WFL: Barbie's Bruins (6-3) launched the Rockets 80-75

WFL: West Coast Ballers bounced The Senators (4-5) 82-74
farleysfootball: Philadelphia Fear (3-6) d-dayed Slaytanic Whermacht 45-36
farleysfootball: Bookworms (4-5) tined Moshville Lightning 49-41

Nice thing about Week 9 is the Eagles were on a bye, so they couldn't go to 4-5.
