8:07 - It's been way too long since this has been done, and I feel like doing it, so here we go. I've got a FanDuel team going for today's games only, and I'm doing pretty well. I'm polishing off a Trillium Stumpy Duck, and preparing to watch Dallas and Seattle play some foosball. Also, I'm an Eagles fan, so I have a natural hate of the Cowboys. Here we go.
8:18: Some background. I only need to come in the top 32 out of 183, and I win $125. I had a good start with just Marlon Mack and Keke Coutee in the first game, who both did quite well (see picture). I've also had many a few beers in the last 2 hours. Since my last live blog, beers that I drink have mostly migrated to pint cans, so each one does some damage. I've had 2 Flying Monkeys Smashbomb and 1 Trillium Stumpy Duck. I'm in a good place. And I just opened a Tree House Julius for the game. I have Russell Wilson, Zeke, Cole Beasley, Amari Cooper, Blake Jarwin, Chris Carson, and Seattle D. Needless to say, I'm rooting for Dallas to get a lot of yards and then Dak can fumble.
8:24: Cole Beasley is hurt, and Dallas scored. Yards, no fumble, but no touchdown either. Could be worse.
8:31: Seattle goes 3 and out. Not good for me. I'm currently 21 points out of the money. Almost done my Julius. To put things in perspective, since about 6:15, once I finish this, I'll have had about 7.75 Bud Lights worth of alcohol. I needed a calculator to do that, because I don't feel like thinking that hard right now. I also drank a good amount at lunch, but I'm assuming that wore off before I started again.
8:39: No jokes here. Allen Hurns is not looking so hot. Don't wish that on anyone. When the announcer can't handle watching the injury, you know it's bad. I hope he is able to come back and play again someday.
8:53: Another 3 and out from Seattle. Now 20.3 points out of the money. Russell Wilson has -0.02 points. Sweet. I finished the Julius, and am having a Smashbomb.
9:11: Making progress on my beer, and Russell Wilson mixed in a first down.
9:14: Kick his ass, Sea Bass ties it up at 3. 16 points out of the money.
9:25: Dallas tries and misses a 58 yarder. 15 points out and Wilson has a short field.
9:28: Polished off the beer. Now at 9.65 Bud Lights. Going to go with Hurricane now.
9:34: This beer is in a different class than any of the others I've had today. Seattle 6-3
9:39: Dallas scores a TD. 10-6. Wrong guys involved in that. In the meantime, I had a random conversation about the best late night food. Our thoughts on the right, very interested to hear the results. Even with bad TD, only 13 out of the money now. I'll be back after halftime, going to mix in a halftime Halo game.
10:03: I went 13/13 with 5 assists in my Halo game, and was the lowest ranked player in the game, so I'd say I'm holding my booze well. I played by the Call of Duty rules, so I had 13 sips. Need a new beer soon. Also Seattle has already punted again.
10:29: Big changes. Finished the beer (11.6 Bud Lights now), and mixing it up with a stout. All That is and All That Will Ever Be. Good lord is it glorious. Seattle up 14-10 now, and I'm 3 points out of the money. Thanks Russ. Also, I expected to be invited to things at halftime, but I wasn't. I'm honestly not sure if I'm mad or happy about it.
10:43: Zeke scores (I have him). I was in the money before his TD, but fell out after. 83% of people have him, and Seattle D lost 3 points due to that, so I'm back to 3 points out. Time for a Russ drive.
11:00: I'm literally exactly on the money line. And Seattle just punted. I'm going to a bar. I can't handle this.
12:39 AM: I won $125. Spent it all at the bar. Go birds.
