My team is largely the same as last year, mainly due to my league being a keeper league where we each get to keep 5 players, it's really almost a dynasty league. However, my keepers have not lead the way for my team this year. Draft picks of Arian Foster and Jeremy Maclin have been huge along with adds like Jacob Tamme and some guy named Michael Vick. Vick has almost single handedly lead me to half my wins, and should have lead to another if I had not gone back to Drew Brees one week. I closed on a 7-2 run and probably should have gone 8-1 or 9-0 during that stretch but second guessing yourself usually leads to losses for me. Fow what it's worth this is the 4th time in 5 years I am in the title game, yet I have no titles during that stretch! Maybe I can do it right this time, then again maybe I won't. Fantasy football is hard because all you can do is try and put your best lineup out there and hope to win since you have no control over it. So the question is, why do so many people play fantasy football? I really don't know why, but I do know I love to play!
Fear the Rat!!
Miami made a huge splash and got LeBron to leave his home in Ohio for South Beach. It seems as though they are stacking a team and will just steamroll through the season. Well we learned right away that it takes time to figure things out and get on a roll. Now they are rolling and people are still upset with LeBron, why!?!? Look I know what it's like to want to ball with your friends and if you get the chance to team up I say do it! If your window of time in this league is small and your best buddies also play in the league why not enjoy the prime time of your career together? Oh wait cuz the legends of the 80's and 90's said they would never do that. They always wanted to lead their team to a title and beat the other guys rather than team up with them. Right, you don't ever thing Charles Barkley wishes he had one season with MJ, or maybe Patrick Ewing had a season with Magic or Larry Bird. How about Karl Malone wanting one season with Shaq or Gary Payton wanting a season playing alongside Kobe, Oh wait those last two did happen!! So get off of LeBron's back and leave Bosh, Boozer, Amare and all the other big names who swapped zip codes in the hopes of winning a title and being happy. It's not like the face of your franchise left for another team and won a title the very next year...oh wait that did happen to my Wolves and KG going to Boston! So buck up Cavs fans soon you too can dream about being relevant again one day just like Wolves Nation, yea.

It was also quite a treat to see how much my girls have grown since last year's trip. Pookie is still as sweet and tentative as before, but she is so smart and ready to start Kindergarten. BooBoo is just a ball of energy and exploration. She simply has no fear and no off button! BooBoo loved the slides at the hotel pools and wore her loving father out!
We ended the trip spending a night camping with family at Farm Island near Pierre, SD. It always a great time spending time with your family even if it involves trying to remember how to set up a tent that will be 90 degrees by 8am!
The longest part of the trip was the final ride home, its fun to go somewhere and explore and experience new things, but returning home is always a welcome sight!
Well I had every intention of finishing week 12 and 13 but as the weeks wore on I decided against week 13's recovery week. It's a great program and nice to just follow along as to what exercises to do, and I did see results in my fitness level. I guess I just ran out of steam due to my workouts getting pushed back from 9-9:30pm to 10-10:30 or later. It was partially due to me and partially due to more daylight and the girls staying up later. It pushed everything later and later, and since I am not a morning person less time to work out.
I think I might crank it up again this fall or maybe sooner, vacation and no p90x this past month have finally caught up to me. Over the next month or so I will try to be better about what I eat and continue to play basketball. I will try and motivate myself to lift some at the gym and hit the elliptical staring at me in my house, ha!
Well this was just to wrap up the loose ends on my p90x story. No huge transformation, no future fitness expert in training, just an average married guy with two kids trying to hang on to his youth so he can ball at the Y. I guess some things never change!
