FSB Daily 2/12: Yesteryear, Buffalo Wild Wings, 8-Year-Old Strongman

Friday, February 12th, 2010

A roundup of items recently posted on the FSB News page.

- Yesteryear officially announced the opening of it’s Fantasy Challenge on Friday, with games to begin on Valentine’s Day. (Now you guys know what to do for your wives …) We’ll have more on the interesting new concept in the coming days.

- As part of the company’s recent fourth-quarter (2009) earnings report, Buffalo Wild Wings president Sally J. Smith pointed to the role that fantasy football played in the restaurant chain’s fall marketing. We know that their efforts have likely at least hooked the Fantasy Football Librarian as a lifelong fan.

- This story has absolutely nothing to do with fantasy, but it could. Quick, someone start up a fantasy child weightlifting game.

Fantasy Players Can Get Carried Away …

Friday, February 12th, 2010

It’s only a joke, but one with which anyone so into fantasy that they’re reading (or writing for) this site can identify.

Of course, this cartoon wasn’t drawn by the FSB.com crew. (I gave up my plans to become an artist back in third grade, when I realized I didn’t have the patience to get good at drawing stuff.) It’s the Friday edition of the syndicated comic “In the Bleachers.” That means at least a few people think the comics audience gets fantasy enough to identify with this guy.

Let’s just hope there aren’t too many folks who mistake it for a mirror …

Happy Friday.
