Off-Topic: An IFL Outing

May 26, 2011 Leave a comment

This has been on my mind for the past couple months now.  A couple things have inspired this too.  For one, I will have a lot of free time during the summer, due to my family heading back to England and Cyprus for a month and a half.  And two, I don’t want to sit around and not do things during that timeframe.

So let’s organize and participate in a group outing of managers from all the leagues involved.  Some of us know some of the others in the leagues.  I’ve know Bad News Bears since I was in grade school.  I know a few of the league members from college.  But there’s others that some of us have not met.  So if we participate in a group outing, we can foster friendships in person, which can help with league dealings a lot more too.  Making trades and proposals would be easier if league members were not faceless screennames, but know as ‘Joe’ or ‘Pat’.

I’m totally game for this.  But the big question remains is what to do?  So here’s a few options that I’m proposing:

IFL Theater: Bulls Jam

May 18, 2011 1 comment

This series isn’t dead.  Just isn’t restricted to Fridays anymore….

Some are calling the biggest playoff series in the history of the NBA, the 2011 Eastern Conference Finals.  The top-seeded Bulls, led by league MVP Derrick Rose, take on a Miami Heat team that some sports writers wanted to give the title to in the preseason, after they acquired LeBron James and Chris Bosh.  They felt that the Heat would be a dominating force, breaking marks for victories and cruise to an NBA championship.  But, they stumbled and did not meet those expectations, leaving the Chicago Bulls as the top team in the NBA playoffs.

Now the two teams will battle for the right to go to the NBA Finals, representing the Eastern Conference.  Despite home-court advantage, many pundits picked the Heat to win the series.  So, how do the Bulls feel about it?  The latest edition of IFL Theater takes a look at how they will handle it, with a famous face and references to a bad movie….
