It's Time

As Imagine Dragons puts it, "It's Time." It is time, time for T.O's Fantasy Minute. Starting this week I began my second year of ranking players for fantasy football.

If you want to read about that, you'll either have to wait a week and go to www.ndna.com/bottineaucourant, or buy a paper, because I won't be posting them on here this year.

What I will do is amuse you readers by showing what I predicted last year compared to how they actually finished. We'll start this week with quarterbacks:

2012 prediction No. 1: Aaron Rodgers. Actual finish for Rodgers: Second. 
Not bad. I was only one off. Maybe this won't be so embarrassing after all. 

2012 prediction No. 2: Drew Brees. Actual finish for Brees: First. 
Another solid pick, but the first few weren't too tough.

2012 prediction No. 3: Tom Brady. Actual finish for Brady: Third. 
Right on. I'm a lot better than I thought.

2012 prediction No. 4: Cam Newton. Actual finish for Newton: Fourth. 
Yes. I should do this for a living.

2012 prediction No. 5: Eli Manning. Actual finish for Eli: 14. 
On second thought....

2012 prediction No. 6: Philip Rivers. Actual finish for Rivers: 21. 
Wow. This is going downhill fast.

2012 prediction No. 7: Matthew Stafford. Actual finish for Stafford: 10.  
Meh. Getting warmer.

2012 prediction No. 8: Matt Schaub Actual finish for Schaub: 18.  
I think I took some unnecessary risky picks here. What was I thinking? 

2012 prediction No. 9: Peyton Manning. Actual finish for Peyton: Six.
To be fair this isn't all that far off, and who thought Peyton would be that good?

2012 prediction No. 10: Tony Romo. Actual finish for Romo: Eight.
Not terrible, but still not making up for the atrocity of those fifth, sixth and eighth picks.

 Anyhow I also have a few pictures from the races last Sunday and the car show last Saturday to share:
Jamie Smith (No. 29) slides through the first turn last Sunday at Thunder Mountain Speedway.

Racers enter turn three during the feature race last Sunday.

A group of folks check out a late Model T at the Crazy Days Car Show.

A man inspects this hot rod.

More than 100 cars entered the car show and hundreds came to check them out.

Highway 43 plays on Saturday afternoon.
