I'm laying out my current fantasy football roster - the 2017 Little Lebowski Urban Achievers - for all to judge, mock and critique. Our league - The Marini/Parrillo War League - is run with an iron fist by the Commissioner Equation Boy/Man and includes my nephews, my Dad, Equation Boy/Man's Dad and nephews on that side. My team was totally auto-drafted as I've done in the past and it usually doesn't turn out amazing. The league is pretty low stakes and because I put in *just* a little bit above the minimum effort in sorting out the buy weeks and inactives, I usually sneak into the playoffs and win maybe one round before being taken out by one of the boys who is all over his team with weekly tweaks and roster moves. The team - lead by just one QB in Dak Prescott and WR Odell Beckham Jr (who was the first pick by the computer) has a bunch of guys I've never even heard of! So, there's that, which is nice, right?

We went down to the Illini game with my sisters and a their boys. Unfortunately, the Illini got stomped by a WAC team. But, all wasn't lost. We did get the two boys (and the Babe!) down on the field for pre-game for a bit. I was able to participate in the "Legacy Tunnel" as the team came out on the field - which is always fun.
Last night, along with my sister and Equation Boy/Man, we took our five kids to see Wilco at the Kane County Cougars Ballpark. We started in the bleachers, but after a few hours, the kids grew pretty restless and we made our way down to the field for some frolicking and running about. We all got pretty tired, and thanks to WXRT we were able to listen to the second encore from the car. The first one, we listened to while we hustled to our cars to beat the mad crush of Volkswagons and Suburus out of the parking lot.
