A confession: I'm a fantasy holdout. A refusenik, really. I've never played. Time was, I could make a compelling case against fantasy sports. Only that's passé. So 2004. In the here and now, I'm like the 40-year-old virgin. Or one of those Japanese soldiers that kept fighting WWII, holed up in the jungle on some godforsaken Pacific island, decades after the war ended. … [Read more...] about What’s the Appeal of Fantasy Football?

Top XFL DFS picks for Week 3One of McClure's top XFL DFS picks for Week 3 is Roughnecks quarterback P.J. Walker. The former Temple star spent three years on the Colts' practice squad after going undrafted in 2017. A Colts connection led him to becoming the biggest star in the XFL through two weeks, as former Colts quarterback Andrew Luck recommended Walker to his father, XFL commissioner Oliver Luck, for inclusion in the league. … [Read more...] about XFL DFS for Week 3: Top DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy football picks, advice, lineups
Leeds 3-0 Reading (13/2 with Sky Sports)I was looking at the Leeds game last week, and Clinton Morrison could not believe how many chances Leeds had and squandered.

There is, really, only one thing O.J. Simpson could say that would hold any sort of public interest, and the minute he said it (for real this time), we’d lose the final reason to pay any attention to him at all. Assuming he never gets there, his account — finally seeing the “real” O.J. for maybe the first time — reveals the pathetic truth about O.J.: He’s just a retired jock reminiscing about the good old days, delusionally convinced that any opinion he has holds endless interest to everyone inside and outside his orbit. This is connected again to Simpson’s sociopathy and megalomania: He still sees all of this as something that happened to him, rather than the result of anything he has done.

IFTTT is what’s called an “applet creation service.” The acronym stands for its creator’s basic idea: “If This, Then That.” Basically, it’s a simple way to make your Home do cool stuff for you automatically. After downloading the app, you can create command modules that can integrate with Google Assistant apps, such as Tasker and Autovoice, to automate certain functions. For example, you could wake up in the morning, say “Hey, Google,” and the Home can change the color of your Hue lamps, fire up NPR, and start a pot of coffee on your behalf. You can also set it to respond to notifications, which will prompt it to alert you when that special someone emails you, track your hours in Google Calendar, and back up texts to a worksheet so you don’t lose any valuable work or personal interactions. … [Read more...] about The best Google Home tips, tricks, and Easter eggs for 2020
