Fantasy football

dartmouthfootball38.pngMy fantasy football team this year was renamed The Duffy Daughertys after the former Michigan State coach, although I pronounced it with the word “dog” and abbreviated for clarity to The DuffyDogs. The real Duffy won two national championships in the middle 1960s and featured the famous player Bubba Smith, maybe the original “Bubba”.

Before that my team was As The Backs Go Tearing By which references an old Dartmouth football cheer or song. It was written by their coach, circa 1910. Who has a songwriter- coach these days?

Before that my team was Beneath the Underdog, referencing Charles Mingus, and his self-titled pseudo-autobiography and memoir.

Before that it was The Chip Hoopers in honor of the sport of basketball, the sport of tennis, a former music industry legend who doubled as a nature photographer, and a former Gunn and pro tennis star (whose nephews played Stanford football –two of them did).

In high school I was the Blue Oyster Colts, after a rock band.

I am doing laundry and trying to learn about rights of the accused. And momentary possession.

Isn’t everything a momentary possession?

Isn’t everything memoir?


Isn’t every moment teachable?
