This week it wasn't so much instant karma as it was delayed karma, which brings me to:
Rule #338 of Fantasy Football: Don't taunt your opponent in a comment on one of his/her blog entries.
To wit, on Friday I commented on a post by Matt of That Tears It..., who coaches The White Strypers, in a, let's say, less than encouraging manner. To his post titled "Top 5 Kicks in the Crotch," among which he counted Michael Jordan in the 1997 and 1998 NBA finals putting the kabosh on the Utah Jazz, I had this to say, and I quote:
I was a huge Jordan fan, and I'd like to say I feel for you on those Jazz losses, but sorry, not really. ;) However, I still think this was a funny post and not just because the Jazz lost.Matt's well-articulated response:
Jordan is swine.I must have forgotten that I was playing Matt this weekend in the Humor Bloggers Fantasy Football League. So not surprisingly, delayed karma got me as I got my ass kicked: 101-62.
So reminder to self: this week if you go to visit Canucklehead's site, since you are playing his team, What the Canuck?, don't say anything that will come back and bite you in the ass. For example, don't mention that:
- you really aren't a beer drinker (although you occasionally like a Canadian whiskey),
- you hate hockey (even before Sarah Palin besmirched its image, which didn't need much help to be besmirched anyway)
- not only do you not know any of the answers to the questions he's asking for a contest to win an ad for a month on his blog, but also
- you do not have the time or inclination to scroll back through hundreds of his posts to find the answers.
At least, I didn't put any of that in a comment to one of his posts, huh?
