My First Fantasy Football Draft - Disappointing

Let's Go, Parma Pandas!
I was so pumped and excited about draft day!  I had made up my strategy for auto picks based on my 9th round pick in a 14-team league and had set my grade A strategy.  Then, an hour before the draft started, I found out I had pick 11, not 9.  They were set randomly, not by team no. so that really threw me for a loop.  I did not have time to figure out a new grade A strategy, so decided to just wing it and pick as I went trying to get the top players available in the rounds.

Unfortunately, I was also switching browsers back and forth for my husband to pick his team as well and he had the 9th pick, which made it difficult since there was only 1 pick between us!  At one point, I think I must have got confused and was on the wrong browser because the options all showed as "queue" instead of "draft" but I didn't realize it.  I got bit flustered to say the least.  It was stressful, especially when my husband was putting in specific names and they'd already been drafted.

At one point, my husband was trying for Greg Little but it didn't say "drafted" but nor did it say "draft."  I think it said queue and then I was able to get that guy.  I don't know, maybe I was in the wrong browser then too?

Anyhow, at the end I was extremely disappointed because I had several injured RB and a bunch of dud players.  My best ranked RB, M. Gordon, is questionable and probably going to miss the first 4-6 weeks!  The good news is, the next morning I went on and made some did drop/adds and was able to make a good trade with my husband that made us both happy.  I think I'll be able to salvage it.  I think it will be fun even though I still have some question as to how the defense is going to work.

"Back to Church Sunday" is a Real Thing!

Our new Pastor at Parma Heights Baptist Church told us that September 15 is "National Back to Church Sunday."  I never heard of it before and thought it was just some idea he came up with, so, I googled it.   Lo and behold, it's actually a real thing!

The idea is to try to get people who have dropped out of church for one reason or another to come and give it another try on that Sunday or for those who never stepped foot inside of a church to come that week.  We actually have invitations to give to people and even t-shirts are available for $7!  I think that's pretty funny.  My husband wants to get one, but I think it's silly since I already attend every week anyway.

Have you ever heard of this before?  Are you going?  If you are in Cleveland or its suburbs, I invite to to join us on Sunday, September 15 or attend a church near you.
