Great to see another successful Dis Dads Meet!! Has anyone begun planning our next big meet? How about a Philly meet, or NYC, or Chicago?

OWNAGE!!!!!

Good idea. Philly would definitely work for me and I could probably do NYC too.

Fantasy Baseball

Been looking at all the Fantasy Football updates over the last few days, and was wondering if anyone would be interested in a free fantasy baseball league fpr DisDads. I know spring training is a few months away, but i am excited about the upcoming season. I like using ESPN for my fantasy leagues and would like to run one for here. If you interested, let me know.

I would definitely be in for a meet in Philly, or NYC. Chill, start working out the details!

Wow, been a busy weekend and a busy day at work.

Aaron, sorry to hear about your dad. Hopefully it isn't something that he's passed on to the rest of you.

Mark, I want to mention DeSean since I was picking on him for the backflop before... I don't mind the celebrations, I actually enjoy and encourage them. But running on the 1 yard line parallel to the endzone is just STUPID! Cross the line, and then celebrate like you've never been there before and might not make it back. Just think if he'd have crossed his feet and stumbled when he looked back and turned, or if the defender behind him could have gotten close enough to swat the ball away? Does the name Leon Lett ring a bell????

This was discussed last week. ClearScreen has been running the football league and was going to set something up for baseball too. Seems to be a lot of interest though, we might have enough for 2 leagues at this rate.

I hear ya. Honestly, I thought he was trying to make sure he ran all the time off the clock in this case. I was ok with it from that standpoint. And he didn't get a 15-yard penalty, which also made me happier than last week. And I was deliriously celebrating at that point.

But yes, he needs to get in the end zone. Sooner or later, it'll bite him again.

Thanks for the input. Too cold to get out now, but I'm going to the store and check them out and see which I prefer. I'll post something if I figure it out.

Now for some (possible) bad news. I spent Saturday at a friend's house. Her munchkins are the same age as mine. We were there for the afternoon, playing, watching Tron (the original), and making a styrofoam Gingerbread house. Yesterday, she called to say her oldest was sick in the belly, spraying out of both ends. And, keep an eye out for my kids.

and you'll see from the signature that we leave for WDW on Saturday.
i really hope we don't have a "cheese ball yak attack" during the 1,000 miles from the STL to Orlando. That will make for one LONG ride...
Positive thoughts for everyone. Been there done that too recently. Hope everyone avoids it.

Ya'll are dressed like it's not a typical, sunny, 75 degree Florida winter day.

The words "root canal" are much worse than the procedure. Hope things go well for you.


Waiting patiently for 11:00 tomorrow (Tuesday) morning. That is when the victory bell sounds, or at least the bell that sends the kids home for Christmas break.

One more, is anyone near Greenville, Tn?? We're headed over there on Jan. 9th for an indoor soccer tourney. If anyone's close, maybe we can get together for a quick meet up, that is if the stars align.

"The Tidy Bowl": I'm gonna clean you like a Toilet Duck. (sorry there trennr)

DeShawn Jackson: As a non-partisan fan watching I was put off by his antics at first, then I re-wound (via TiVo so is it technically rewinding?) and noticed 2 seconds left on the clock when he first got to the endzone, so Kudos to him or noticing.

Meetups: I'd be up for a meetup in Chicago, or even Milwaukee (but who'd want to meet there?) New York is a possibility, as I will be going there on a regular basis with my job.

Bears vs. Vikes: This is the most exciting hockey game I've ever seen... what? They're not playing hockey on that ice surface? That explains why there are no too-many-men-on-the-ice penalties. But seriously, awesome job by Hester breaking the Career Punt Return record.

You've just won the prize for Best Splash Mountain picture! The reward? Listening to all of the other DisDads laughing their butts off!

And congratulations on the Meet Up!
