Tip of the day from CrabAppleLane: If you get a price from a merchant that's a little higher than you like, it's rather rude to ask him/her where you can get it cheaper. At best, it's unfair and probably takes money out of their pocket if they volunteer that information. At worst, they could get fired for doing so.
One of my undefeated fantasy football teams tasted defeat this week in a shootout to another undefeated team. Those are fun in the middle of the season when a loss can still be overcome. At 5-1, I think my team will be fine. My other fantasy football team remains undefeated at 6-0 but it required quite a bit of magic in the form of not one, but two return touchdowns by the Broncos last night. Needed both of them to victimize my friend, Hyde, once again. My team is 5-4 against his since 1999 and I'm pretty sure two of those games were won by me on tiebreakers.

Quote from said blog: "This week is a huge callenge as perhaps the NFL's best team comes to Land Shark Stadium...the New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees has been unbelieveable, and we face the toughest test so far. Hey, to be the best you have to beat the best. Bring them on."
That's the spirit. -Rob
