The games don't count, but it is fun to watch guys try to make the team and catch a glimpse of the team as it takes shape.

There is one experiment from the preseason that I hope the NFL decides to keep come September.

Fantasy Football Sucks The Life Out Of The Workday

I'll admit it, Fantasy Football is fun!  So much fun that I had to ban myself from playing.  I was spending way too much time tweaking my lineups each week and dropping and adding players, and worrying about how I was going to beat co-workers named Mike and Amy that I worked with at the time.  I recognized the obsession and quit cold turkey.

And I didn't like that I was rooting for the Ravens defense to intercept Peyton Manning just so I could get a few fantasy points.  Peyton Manning is my boy!  And I became a traitor to him in the name of Fantasy Football, and I felt like a big cheater so I quit.

How much workplace productivity is wasted each year because of Fantasy Football?  It's shocking!

Are Texas Dance Halls A Thing Of The Past?

Central Texas has some dance halls with history behind them, like the Broken Spoke in Austin, and Gruene Hall about 45 minutes to the south.

Those two spots seem to have enough history and tradition behind them to continue drawing a crowd, and they've got that cool factor that attracts both older cowboy boots and young skinny jeans.  But will other Texas dance halls last?
