I guess you are wondering why we still have Aaron Hernandez Trivia?  Well, it was recently discovered that he left a letter behind in his cell for the OFFL's Commisioner Office. 
Dear Commissioner Purvis:


Here are 14 really good trivia questions for the RollingSkull.  Please use them well.  I gotta go as my fellow inmates are disappointed that I am not as pretty as Tom Brady.  




Well, for over 2 years Aaron blessed us with great trivia.  We march onward with this week's question.  "The Colts and Rams play this Sunday. Eric Dickerson once held the single-season rushing record for both of these teams. Who is the only other player in league history who's run for over 1,500 yards for two different franchises?"

a.  Clinton Portis
b.  Marshall Faulk
c.  Emmitt Smith
d.  Marcus Allen
This week's winners will receive a copy of Jimmy Surin, New York Gangster's new book, "Transitioning."  This autobiography follows Jimmy on his journey to become a merman. 

All answers should be submitted to E.A. Presley, Editor and Chief via the Commissioner's Office.


This week's checklist:

1.  Make sure you check your roster prior to Thursday games to make sure you don't lock in or lock out  the wrong player.  Your other players for
     Sunday and Monday will lock in at 12:59 Sunday morning (with the exception of those goofy early European games that the NFL schedules).

2.   Kalish is Pete's back up if for some reason you have to get a hold of the league office before game time (or go on record)
      Jeff's email, for backup.  VP Jeff Kalish now has administrative privileges if anyone has problems with the

3.  Karl's quick tutorial on the "My Fantasy League Software,

4.  League Entry is $120.  Free agents, $5 a pop.  You can pay me in advance or wait.  Just don't leave me hanging at season's end. 

5.  Do not ask Commissioner Purvis a "rule question" until after you have read the rules. 

6.  To enjoy the music with your pc table for  the site, you need Adobe Flash.   The FireFox browser now longer supports Flash.  For cell phone, they
      do offer the FlashFox browser now for anDroid.

7.  You can listen to live updates on your PC/Laptop with the GameDay Program, download here GAMEDAY APP.  Great App, it is Microsoft
     based....  Use League ID 13439 when prompted.
Turn up the volume and enjoy.

P. L. Purvis  
Commissioner, OFFL

The long wait is over!  Week one is upon us and so are the reminders that our nation's water system needs improvement.  After last week's draft, I am convinced the water is tainted.  Here are some fact based examples.
     -  Obi Wong, Jason lead you wrong!  A defense in the 7th (DEN)?  That is so 2005 Flying Gators!    The water is bad or you have been eating
         Kitty's cooking!
     -  MYLF, you know better than this, e tu Kitty?  You went defense with the 84th pick (SEA).  Right after Jason above!  You had DeSean,
        Willie and Muscle Hampster still on the board.  Your are a OFFL vet for Pete's sake!
     -  Jason and Kitty don't feel bad.. Joe and Carson did not want you to feel alienated.  They decided to join you with early defenses. 
         Gators go HOU at #95 and G O J goes NYG at #102.  Maybe you all bought the same Swanson TV dinner nationwide laced with acid?
     -  I am starting to see Big Joe is buying into his own hype.  After grabbing
        a defense. he then goes kicker (Gostkowski) at pick 98.  I am trying to come up
        with an analogy here:  "So one kisses a girl for the first time...  You find out later
        that the girl is your long lost sister...  Instead of feeling uncomfortable
        about the lip kiss and apologizing... You go in for the French kiss after the fact."  
        What I am saying, "Two picks of the sort that early are gross!"
        Under the WTF Category, "Gronk in the 2nd?"  C'mon Man!
    -   I am thinking we have the most empathetic league in history.  With Joe
        drafting the first kicker, OBI an MYLF feel bad for the Gators and grab kickers
        in the ninth round.  Rounds 7 - 9 were just a big love fest apparently...
    -  With top 20 RB's being limited, who picks a QB in the first round?   Gangsters
        and MYLF!   It is time for an intervntion.  While I expect this behavior from
        Jimmy... Something is wrong with Kitty.  
    -  Rick aka Tuna Wrangler, we are going to get your wife help.  We did not have
        it in the RollingSkull budget, but we did establish a page with"Go Fund Me"
        and we now have her in the capable hands of Dr. Phil to fight "scrub addiction."
    -  How about Rider's first pick of Ajayi.  Could not happen to a nicer guy.  Go Irma!
        BOmB OuT!

Pedro ended up with a batting average of 600 last year  Who needs CBS/ESPN?  He is back for week one with the following predictions.  Week 1's spokesmodel is Lena Headey from Game of Thrones.  We are of the opinion that HBO needs to turn the character Cersei into a brunette immediately.

Star Wars Fitness:  Onnit Star Wars

One thing I’ve noticed watching the Star Wars movies, you never hear anybody say anything about going to the gym. You never see any Imperial gyms on board any of the Empire’s giant spacecraft, and you never see any gyms in the background on Tatooine or Hoth. The closest thing to a gym I can remember is Yoda‘s backyard where he teaches Luke how to be a Jedi, but I can’t imagine anyone actually paying a membership fee to exercise there. Anyway, there’s a new collection of Onnit Star Wars fitness equipment.  Onnit Star Wars fitness equipment includes the Death Star Slam Ball, the Han Solo (frozen in carbonite) Yoga Mat, and a whole line of Star Wars Kettlebells, all of which let you work out, well, if not like a Jedi would, at least like a major Star Wars nerd would.  Check out the Onnit Star Wars fitness equipment collection at Onnit’s official site right here.



One day at the end of class, little Johnny's teacher asks the class to go home and think of a story to be concluded with the moral of that story. The following day the teacher asks for the first volunteer to tell their story.  Little Suzy raises her hand. "My dad owns a farm and every Sunday we load the chicken eggs on the truck and drive into town to sell them at the market. Well, one Sunday we hit a big bump and all the eggs flew out of the basket and onto the road."When the teacher asked for the moral of the story,


Suzy replied, "Don't keep all your eggs in one basket."


Little Lucy went next. "My dad owns a farm too. Every weekend we take the chicken eggs and put them in the incubator. Last weekend only eight of the 12 eggs hatched."Again, the teacher asked for the moral of the story.


Lucy replied, "Don't count your chickens before they hatch."


Next up was little Johnny. "My uncle Ted fought in the Vietnam war, and his plane was shot down over enemy territory. He jumped out before it crashed but could only take a case of beer, a machine gun and a machete. On the way down, he drank the case of beer. Then he landed right in the middle of 100 Vietnamese soldiers. He shot 70 with his machine gun, but then he ran out of bullets! So he pulled out his machete and killed 20 more. Then the blade on his machete broke, so he killed the last ten with his bare hands."  The teacher looked a little shocked. After clearing her throat, she asked what possible moral there could be to this story.


"Well," Johnny replied, "Don't f**k with Uncle Ted when he's been drinking." 

With the weather and all...  This is a short and simple recipe that is to the point... The Frozen Margarita.

Lil jig of cointreau for a topper
