This is a fantasy football post. Tldr: won one league, missed playoffs in the other, there was some banter.

The Tonks set up a trip to the kid-friendly Rancho Guejito Vineyard. The castle bounce and live music were a big hit, the heat and flies were not.

Changing the calendar number from 2021 to 2022 means there's data to be analyzed.

After a covid year off, Friendsgiving returned to San Marcos where we squeezed eight families into a not-particularly-code-compliant VRBO. The last part isn't all bad; it meant there was a 30' waterslide and we could play Danger Pong.

Huh, no posts about covid in months.

The covid surge that everyone expected after Thanksgiving has hit. Jes is busy at work. I can get by with games, streaming, jogging, and taking the dog out.

Since it was just the two-ish of us, Jes and I went to the Lodge for Thanksgiving lunch.

Among Us memes are on the decline, but they got a little bump with the votingest election in US history. The lolbaters haven't played it in a couple of months, but we did have a few rousing sessions of griefing and dysfunction.

Hot start

Pretty fun football this weekend. I have to agree with Rich Gannon however, the fake crowd noise is just silly.

First and foremost: Tori and Jon got a pup.

Jes and I took Kaf down to the cove. Rain had washed part of the path away, so we had a difficult descent and even more challenging return.

The Cooley Halloween party moved to the Tonkers' place due to special circumstances, but it still had costumes, pizzas, and beers. Jessica's Gamora costume won best of the night, (another) Chris's beekeeper won worst.

Idaho Falls was pretty mellow. We got a few rounds of Snow Eagle's Beaver Dick and executed on a project goal of obtaining the giant guiness cup from The Celt.

The 2014 Medieval Gridiron season has arrived, we drafted at Casa de Santos this past weekend. Good food, good drinks, Ryan and Dan drafted using the same fantasy football magazine - I know, right?

Lots going on the past couple weeks, but when is there not?

Flag football has concluded. It was a good run.

Dream team

It's almost time to defend my fantasy titles. I've already hashed out my dream team:

Garage work

I spent the week prepping the garage for the annual Super Bowl party. The walls are now dark green as planned, with some brick red. The ceiling is still white so it's by no means cave-like, but the green adds flavor.

Dog Seger and I spent a few hours on the road this weekend, making the standard Christmas journey.

I turned a late night park trip into a photo session.

Playing the field

Flags are in. Probably game zero this Saturday.

As expected, life and times got pretty exciting. The Cathcart breakdown:
Fantasy football; black eye Medieval Gridiron: 2-2
AFL: 0-4
Supermassive Black Hole: 1-3
League of Extraordinary Gentleman: 3-1
Two losses can be chalked up to Vick getting injured. DeAngelo is not doing well. But has been a very strange season so far, hopefully I can dig myself out of some of these holes.

A proper backyard by winter

More lights for the backyard. Eventually I'd like to swap them out for bigger lanterns, but it suffices.

B hosted the second annual Medieval Gridiron live draft at his new place in Corona. It was hot. Like really hot.

Broader fov

My 20mm f/2.8 came today, the one with the 62mm diameter. Doctor Daddy wants me to shoot his kid's first birthday party and the 50mm and 105mm won't cut it. The plan is to foreshorten the crap out of them (below) so they all look like bobbleheads. That's cute, right?

Heavy in the games

I've finally made the jump to two fantasy leagues, but will maintain my own rule that
Thou shalt not speak of thine 'other fantasy league' whilst conversing about a league.

So the ol' 1.6 Athlon setup finally choked. Hard to say what it was, I've failed to diagnose the problem hardware having independently swapped everything out. I'll revisit when I'm setting the box up as a terminal in the garage.

Odds and ends

I cleared out the car hold on Sunday thanks to the garage-media room proximity. I was able to relocate all of the tools to the adjacent storage room, though they've been in disarray since being displaced from the upstairs bedroom.

I furnished the media room with some proper couches. They're just one palette up at the moment, but it's great for running audio wiring.
And I furnished Jon an xr400. Much thanks to Ted for the leg work, and Christine for the bow.
And Jon furnished me a fantasy football victory.

Scene It Ty and I cleaned up on Saturday. Three comeback victories in a row against the roomies and their girlfriends.
Fantasy football Next week will be straight out of Genesis. Kevin takes on Brian, and I'm playing Jon. Let's hope the older brothers fare better than they did in the elder vs. younger Wiilympics all those months ago. But what's there to worry about with Wayne against Oakland and Moss against the Jets? That's seven tds right there.
