I'm Winning!!! (and gloating)

Ok, so I try not to gloat too much on stuff, because I believe that karma catches up to one that does - but I can't help but do it a little bit.... Why? Because I'm winning in both my fantasy football league (8-0) AND Patrick's Football Pick 'Em! This NEVER happens to me! I'm thinking that the boys won't let me play anymore if I continue to dominate like this.

Usually, what happens to me is that for the first 3 or 4 weeks, I do pretty well. After that, my team (or picks) just tank, I suck, and end up watching someone else rake in the glory. There is one caveat - if there is money involved, I suck from the very beginning, so I'm sure to lose whatever cash I put in. And now that I'm gloating, I'll probably suck from now on, too.

So I have to take this opportunity (seeing as though I'm in uncharted territory) to gloat a bit and stick my tongue out at all those guys who think girls don't know much about sports - this particular Oreo grew up watching football with her daddy - it was our "quality time" together. The Bohunk makes fun of me because I will watch college football, pre-season football, the Pro Bowl, and NFL Europe (and "my team" doesn't even have to be involved in the game!)

Imagine me singing....."I'm win-ning, I'm win-ning....."

I'm Stealing The Covers

Ok, so I'm doing 2 things with this post - stealing an idea from PammyJean, and promising not to be serious ('cause I've got so much to bitch about right now, but I haven't done anything fun with this blog-thing yet) here goes.

PammyJean likes to have people who visit her blog (see "Stuff I Like To Look At") answer questions - sometimes deep questions, sometimes frivolous ones (like the one she did today - TASTY!....) So, I'm going to do a frivolous one of my own.... I have been planning for months now to make a CD of cover songs, but I only have so many in my music collection. For example, Duran Duran does a cover of "White Lines" by Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five, or Steve Miller Band's "Abracadabra" redone by Sugar Ray.

The question: what are your favorite cover songs? And don't forget to tell me who did it, so I can try to include them on my CD (I WILL get around to actually making it!) ;-)
