There is an old expression that says "you can never be too rich or too thin." I believe this has largely been disproved by any number of famous celebrities, mainly women, from
They also say you can never have too much pitching, a theory the San Francisco Giants are apparently trying to test, with news that they are gunning for
But heck, we're in football season now, so let's focus on the "never" rules that are more current. Most leagues began the playoffs this week, and one of those caveats is "Never sit your studs." I can't tell you how many e-mails I got last week asking whether an owner should sit
Speaking of "nevers," a pretty good episode of
Now, I've pared myself back and I only have three teams. And trust me, were I still single, I'd like to think that I'd test out the Naked Guy theory a few times. Heck, I can humiliate myself a few times for my readers. But if managing a bunch of fantasy football teams makes you a loser, then we are turning into a nation of losers.

To all of you, good luck in your playoffs. If you missed out on the playoffs, it's a good time to stay focused if your league counts total points -- but it's also a good time to try and do some post-game analysis of why your team missed out. Sometimes, it's just random luck -- in my main league, the team with the most fantasy points missed the playoffs because of a terrible schedule. That happens. But just as often, it's a missed draft pick, a bad trade or overthinking a lineup decision. It's fine to make those mistakes, but it's a lot better to only make them once. Let's return to our main theme, and say that you should NEVER do that.
Good luck, and Happy Holidays.
