Here is an imaginary conversation that relates to the situation the Philadelphia Colangelos find themselves in. “Son, I’m going to be traveling on business this summer, spending a ton of time all over the country, and then almost a month in Brazil. So I need you to take care of the house. Please clean out all that junk in the garage. There is a ton of it.” “OK, Dad.” “And I’m going to leave you the keys to the Ferrari. I think you’ve shown
On a Sunday when college hoops is in the spotlight, the largest NBA fantasy contests close at 4:00 Eastern, spanning all six games. Although DFS heroes can come from anywhere, the best real-life matchup is in Dallas. [Read more…]
The $1M Return To The Court is a one-night fantasy points league. If you already have a DraftKings account, it’s well worth 20 bucks to take a shot at a hundred grand, especially with another $900,000 in guaranteed consolation prizes. [Read more…]
