Fantasyland
As I've admitted before, I'm a fantasy sports geek...

This past season, I went nuts with my fantasy baseball leagues... I wound up with teams in 16 leagues! 15 Head-to-Head and 1 Rotisserie.

As our seasons wrapped up today, I had a very successful season.
I made the league playoffs in all 15 of my H2H leagues, playing in the championship round in 8 of those. I've been leading my Roto league by a wide margin all season.

One league wrapped up 2 weeks ago, and I finished in 3rd place in that one.

Of the 14 playoff games I had going in the final round (covering the last 2 weeks of the baseball season), I went 13-0-1 (though I will probably lose on the tiebreaker in the tied match).

Final totals: 7 H2H league Championships, 1 2nd Place, and 7 3rd Place. Plus the Roto league Championship.

Not bad... finishing in the top 3 in all 16 leagues. But that was so many to keep track of, I guarantee you I will never have that many teams in play again! It was crazy, especially with all the playoff maneuvering.

Strike Zone
For the Baseball fans among my LJ friends:

What is a "strike"? Do you know what the official strike zone is?
It's a little different from the one in effect back when I was in little league in the middle of the last century :oO And it's *Waaaaaaay* different from how strikes and balls were called under the original rules of baseball in the late 1800's.
