Shortarmguy Diary Update for 8/29/10 --- I Rocked My 2010 Fantasy Football Draft Night!!!


Shortarmguy Diary Update for August 29, 2010


Fantasy Football Draft Night 2010



On Thursday night, I went to see the movie The Expendables with my co-worker, Sean.  I went in to the movie with pretty low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised.  Although it was filled with gratuitous violence, the characters were quite engaging, the plotline was fun and fast paced, and the action scenes were well shot and quite innovative!  Overall, I give it One Big Thumb Up! 

Check out the trailer here:




When I go to the movies with my friends, Miss Sheri likes to stay home and build really big fires.  I'm hoping that doesn't mean anything.



At Nor-Tech, we sell a product called Geowall which is a really cool 3D Visualization System.  It's so awesome!  My boss, Dr. Bollig, can be seen here enjoying a demo of it with his family.  You can read more details about it on Nor-Tech's website here:


Then you could call me at Nor-Tech and buy one for yourself! 

And we'll both be happy!


On Friday, Dr. Bollig and I had lunch with an old friend from Globelle, Luann Monahan.  I'd love to tell you what we talked about, but it's a little bit too raunchy for a family website like this one!



Grandma Linda didn't have the greatest of weeks since she had to go have a surgery and spend Friday night in the hospital.  But she's well on her road to recovery and will be back to her old shenanigans in no time!  Watch out, Minnesota!


On Friday night, it was Fantasy Football Draft Night at Steve "Cuds" Cuddihy's House!  We were all revved up and ready to go!


Auctioneer Curtis did a great job at keeping everyone in line and  moving the draft picks forward in an efficient manner.  It may not sound that challenging, but wrangling coherent speech for more than 4 hours from 12 drunk guys who all think they're NFL Geniuses is just a little bit tough. 



Steve "Cuds" Cuddihy is an incredible Fantasy Football Commissioner and throws an awesome draft night that doesn't miss a trick.  The only problem with the guy is that he tends to fart a lot.  It gets a bit hard to sit close to him after awhile.



Donte came to the draft night to provide a little bit of muscle in case any of the team owners got too out of control.  I don't know what it is, but whenever I'm around guys that can literally break me in two pieces, I have this overwhelming urge to rub them on their belly.  I'm very lucky that this habit of mine hasn't killed me yet.



All in all, I was pretty pleased with my draft results. 

Here's the players I got:

McNabb, Donovan WAS QB

Sanchez, Mark NYJ QB

Foster, Arian HOU RB

Grant, Ryan GBP RB

Mathews, Ryan SDC RB

Westbrook, Brian SFO RB

Boldin, Anquan BAL WR

Edwards, Braylon NYJ WR

Galloway, Joey WAS WR

Houshmandzadeh, T.J. SEA WR

Jackson, Vincent SDC WR

Rice, Sidney MIN WR

Gonzalez, Tony ATL TE

Bironas, Rob TEN PK

Vikings, Minnesota MIN Def


Pretty dominant, I know! 

I'll see all you guys at this year's Super Bowl!!! 

Have a great week, everyone!
