Fantasy Olympics Update

Well the Olympics are over (tear :'() and my Fantasy league is obviously over. Meaning of course that I have time to do other things, like get the house ready for my Mother-in-law. Anyway, Since I had Phelps on my team I won my division, The Jim Thorpe Division, although not by much (3 points). Thats part of the problem having 3 out of 12 people not do anything for your team whatsoever. But overall through all of the leagues I tied for third (although the tie-breaker demoted me to fourth). So all in all not bad. This is my team and the points that they scored. (3 for gold, 2 for silver, 1 for bronze):

1. Michael Phelps - 24
2. Nastia Liukin - 10
3. Jeremy Wariner - 5
4. Matt Emmons - 2
5. Raj Bhavsar - 1
6. David Boudia
7. Margaret Hoelzer - 5
8. Kerri Walsh/Misty May-Treanor - 3
9. Laura Wilkinson
10. Sarah Hammer
11. Samantha Peszek - 2
12. Julia Smit - 3

I had a blast doing it and this is definitely something I will be doing again in the 2010 for Vancouver.

Fantasy Olympics

Ok, so I know it has been a little while since my last post but I have been a little busy. First updates about me.

1. I got hired by the URS office out here in Salt Lake City. So now I don't need to be supported by the New York office anymore (Which it was awsome of them to do) but I also get a 40% raise. YEA!!!!. So I will basically be doing the same type of work (GIS and Geology) but on a wider range of topics.

2. I joined a Fantasy Olympics team. You can see my team HERE. This is pretty cool. You pick 12 players and 1 tie breaking country. Each medal the person wins you get points (3 for gold, 2 for silver and 1 for bronze.) And the most points at the end wins. I had a first round draft pick so I get Phelps. No money for competing but it is really cool, I get to cheer on my team. I am also in two other competitions for the Olympics, one at NBC.com and the other at ESPN. So I have been pretty busy trying to keep everything in line. It is the only sporting thing I follow so I need to take advantage of it when it is around.

3. The Clone Wars opens Thursday night and I have my Midnight showing ticket. The other love of my life STAR WARS opens with a new movie and I will be there from the opening second. YES!!!.

Ok thats all for now. I will hopefully update posts with out trips that we have been taking around the lovely state of Utah. Most likely those will go up when Veronica goes back to being on call towards the end of August.
