From Wall Street to Ground Zero

September 18, 2010 by  

Added some photos of this afternoons walking tour of lower Manhattan. It’s amazing what, in the space of just 30 minutes or so, you can walk passed. Wall Street, the site where George Washington took the Oath of Office to become the 1st President, Ground Zero, the Stock Exchange, etc.

From the Top of the Rock

September 10, 2010 by  

While out and about a couple of weeks ago, I stopped by Rockefeller Center to take some pictures from the observation deck on the 70th floor.  It was a beautiful day, but a little hazy… the shots still came out pretty good.  The view from here is outstanding, with lines MUCH shorter than at the Empire State Building.  I’ll have to come back a couple of times for night-time and clear-day shots.

Dear Mr. Fantasy (Football) 2010

September 5, 2010 by  

Last weekend was the Fantasy Football 2010 draft, and I ended up with the 8th overall pick.  In this league, you are allowed to keep a maximum of two players from last years roster, provided you give up 3 rounds from where the player(s) was drafted the previous year.  For example, I had Ryan Grant in the 6th round last year, so I had to give up my 3rd round pick this year in order to keep him.  Players that were not drafted, like Justin Forsett, are considered to be ‘drafted’ in the 12th round for keepers, so I had to give up my 9th round pick this year to keep him.  Hopefully Housh will end up in a good situation, since Seattle cut him yesterday…
