Yes, I Have Crumbled On the Toilet Before

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we finally have a legit WTF?! …

I will not name the name of the restaurant that led to my having this reaction, but, yes, I have had this exact reaction:

Tank of corn collapses and starts fire
Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, restaurants that lead to this bathroom reaction?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!

Sunday Morning WTF?! Someone Is Not Happy We Moved Into Germany

In this Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we apologize for being dark … and then going dark again …

Apologies for being on again, off again, on again, and now off again.

Things should be up and running normally again come Thursday. Be good until then.

How to: Make a Trade ... And, We Might Be Going Dark

As an owner of a shiny new 2018 Santa Lechuga team, it's important that you understand how this ol' boy of a fantasy league runs. So today we are talking about trades.

You have eight trades in the bank; you pre-paid for those when you paid your entry fees. (Wait a minute … have you paid your entry fees yet? If not, we can't process any trades for you. So, please pay your ownership entry fees, then make your trades, 'k?) You might have a couple more trades for paying before Opening Day. And maybe even more for recruiting new owners. You can use these trades any time before the end of the Regular Season. When you make a pre-paid trade it goes in effect the day after you submitted it. (Generally speaking, we aren't hard-alphas about this. If you make a trade one minute after midnight even though you tried to get it in at 11:59 pm, we're going to process it for you that same morning. The key is, make sure the trade is waiting for us when we roll out of bed in the morning.)

To submit a trade move your cursor of the Home button above, then click Make Trade. That'll take you to the nifty form. From there, fill out the form, double-check everything, then hit Submit at the bottom of the form.


Just about as easy as it sounds.

Oh, and don't forget: We don't give refunds on unused trades. So, you know, use them.

Finally, e are headed to Newport in a few hours, then heading to Kalamazoo this weekend, then to Denver early next week, so … there might be a bit of darkness around here, depending on our Internet connections along the way. As always, feel free to make trades but please understand that they may not be processed until we get back from all this travel nonsense.

Some Administrative Stuff

With everything up and running and with you all able to navigate the site, we now need your help. Please:
  • Check your roster. Go to Standings and click the "Rosters" tab. Now, find your team and review your roster. Does it look right? Did I accidentally give you Jonah A. Arenado instead of Nolan Arenado? We ask because we had to enter each roster manually, which opens up the possibility that we made mistakes. So, if we made a mistake on your roster and gave you a wrong player, let us know ASAP. And don't rage-quit. Fixing our mistakes won't count as a trade, we promise.
  • Check your Hall-of-Fame Death Pool roster. This one is easier since we just copied-and-pasted directly from your submitted roster, but it's still a good idea to double-check.
  • Make note of your Hall-of-Fame Magic Number. There is no right or wrong here, but we want you to be aware of your Magic Number. It's the number in parentheses next to your team name. (We assigned the first 30 teams a Magic Number — a single number from 1 to 30 — based on the order in which they joined the league. So, the fifth team to join got Magic Number 5. For each remaining team, a Magic Number from 1 to 30 was drawn from a hat.
That should take care of the administrative stuff. While we continue to update our blog to point out other stuff as we think about it over the coming days, we will also try to coax a State of the League address from our commissioner, Rube Furrow.

Speaking of which, has anyone seen Rube? We heard he began a 1,000-stop 3,131-mile intercontinental pub crawl — starting in Madawaska, Maine, and ending in El Centro, California — the day after the World Series ended last year, but never heard whether he made it home.

Rube? Are you out there? Can you send us a message of some kind? We might start to get worried about you if you don't respond soon.

Sunday Morning WTF?! Someone Is Not Happy We Moved Into Germany

In this, the first of this season's Sunday Morning Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, we revisit an oldie by a goodie.

Sure, this video meme is lots of years old, but why should that stop us from squeezing an annual blog entry out of it?


His advice at the end, it is still sound today.

Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!, you whacky, crazy dude, we aren't that bad?! I mean, seriously, W?! T?! F?!
