With Michael Vick on his bye week and Maurice Jones-Drew playing the highly-touted Ravens D, that's who I was this week: The Gambler.
I swallowed the fantasy football hype on Tim Tebow and DeMarco Murray hook, line and sinker, and I'm glad I did. I counted 125 points to Bourbon Blaster's 106 points, with a large portion of his points coming from Drew "The No-Gamble" Brees.
My only error: I jumped on the Torain Train (perhaps a little too early, now with Tim Hightower out), who scored a whopping 0 points. MJD actually had 14 fantasy points and would have been the better play in the flex position.
So what's funny about this post? So far, nothing...
...except maybe for the name DeMarco.
Or how about Tebow?
Tea Bow? Tea Bough? Tee Bo, like Tae Bo? Which brings me in a roundabout way (thanks to a Google image search for Tae Bo) to something Mr. Tebow, being the über-Christian he is, probably has used in his workout routines since his homeschooling days:

Evidently Willis believes that yoga needs a Christian alternative and I'm thinking who better to promote her product than Tebow.

I know. I know. The NFL bans such promotion underneath the eyes, but I'm imagining what this would be like in a perfect world where there didn't need to be a Christian alternative to yoga, because there would be no yoga.
Personally (at least for this week), I'm just glad there's a Tim Tebow.
