Andrew represented TFAW.com at the Football Fanatics Poker Tournament. Andrew is a novice player, but lasted longer then most of the other beginners.
Just because Affiliate Summit is over, doesn’t mean we’re done posting here. We have dozens of more videos clips and pictures ready to be posted. Here’s a quick clip of Stephanie from ARC following her bust in the Poker Tournament. She was one of the last remaining females in the Tournament.
Jason and I are about to head to the hotel front desk to check out then grab a plane to the airport. It’s been a great couple of days, now time to head home.
We’ve finally reached the last article in my five part series on the 2009 Fantasy Forecast – The Oscars Edition. No surpprise here, saving the best for last. Be sure you read Part I (Doubt), Part II (Milk), Part II (The Wrestler) and Part IV (Slumdog Millionaire).
The Dark Night – My favorite movie of last year, and it is over 50 top critics #1 movie of the year; but still got snubbed at the Globes and could as well at the Oscars, because I’ve been told it made just too much money. Well I won’t snub any of my Oscar sports picks. 2008 NBA Fantasy Best Actor in a leading Role: Chris Paul. For some reason the NBA awarded the MVP last year to Kobe Bryant. I don’t know personally who votes for the NBA MVP but I know they are all morons. Kobe had more points than Paul and a couple of rebounds but that’s it. Paul shot better, had a ton more assists, steals, and just about everything but I guess that doesn’t matter to the rest of the non-fantasy world. Check out this line from November 22nd this year: 29 points, 16 assists, 10 Rebounds, 3 steals, 1 block, 1 3 pointer, and 11/17 shooting, plus just a single turnover. Tears literally rolled from my eyes when I saw that line. It made me almost actually want to watch an NBA game. My supporting actor goes to Marcus Camby, check out this line from December 19th: 19 points, 27 Rebounds, 4 blocks, 2 steals, and 9/16 shooting. Tears rolled from my eyes, literally tears. 2008 NHL Best actor: of course Alexander Ovechkin. 65 Goals (OMG!!), 47 assists, a +28, 446 SOG (that’s over 5 a game!!), and 11 GWG’s. I’ve seen entire fantasy squads do less than Ovechkin alone. Best supporting actor in the NHL goes to everyone else since everyone else seemed like a supporting actor; but since someone has to win I’ll give it to his top defenseman fellow Washington Capitol Mike Green. NFL best fantasy actor goes easily to Drew Brees. 34 TD’s and 5000+ passing yards made him the #1 fantasy QB and by far the #1 fantasy player. Best supporting actor, also a QB; Tyler Thigpen. I mean, who saw that one coming; he was this year’s Derek Anderson. Matt Cassel was a close second but he had more to work with. Lastly is MLB Best actor which for the second straight year Florida Marlin’s Hanley Ramirez. Anyone who hits 0ver .300 with 30+ HRs and 30 + SB’s, wins easily. Best Supporting actor is Mike Aviles who was a complete stud and no one has a clue who he is (and every year one person wins at the Oscars who no one knows).
Well that’s it with my Oscar edition. Hope the Dark Knight gets the recognition it deserves and Derek Jeter drops in drafts were he belongs. Here’s dreaming.
Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas has officially come to a close. Football Fanatics had a great time at the Summit. We participated in the sessions, visited the Exhibit Hall, attended a few network parties, and held our first ever Poker Tournament at the Palms Casino.
We reconnected with friendly faces and met a lot of new people.
My flight back to Jacksonville leaves around 9:35 AM and I’ll arrive in Florida close to 6:00 PM. It’s going to be a long day of traveling, but will feel good to get back home.
Just because the Summit is over, doesn’t mean we won’t keep updated this category page. We have dozens of more pictures and videos to share with you. Keep checking back and you’ll surely find something new.
The folks who run Affiliate Summit put together a Triathlon Event. Participants donated $100 to charity for a chance to win a free booth at next year’s Summit. Dozens of people participated. The first event was a tricycle race, the second event was a long drive contest, and the final event was a basketball shooting contest. Here are a couple of videos of the action.
