The wife enjoys the show as well, so that is a bonus.

Can't wait for this. Just picked up Season 1 from Amazon Video On Demand (only $5.99) so I can rewatch it before Thursday.

I like Psych but I don't think its nearly on the level of either Sunny or The League.

So has the names of the fantasy football teams ever been revealed? I know Andre's team is the Double Ent-andres or something.

We've talked about doing that for the 2 leagues (lot of overlap in ownership) I'm in and I think it would be a trainwreck. So I'll be very interested to see this.

Just like in that show, in real life, I think most of our league would have some restrictions in terms of wives/kids etc.

I listened to the latest Comedy Death-Ray Radio podcast with Paul Scheer and Nick Kroll today, which really got me looking forward to tonight's episode.

EW has an exclusive deleted scene and an interview with the creators.

I loved how over-the-top this episode was.

lol @ Rodney (Nick Kroll) at the end. That was awful, disgusting, disturbing, and hilarious.

Kevin and Jenny were great, as usual. Ocho-Cinco making fun on Andre along with the rest of the League was funny. I don't think I'll ever get tired of the group ragging on him.

Not sure about the introduction of Ralfo (sp?) though...

Awesome ending with them opting to get into trouble over divulging the secret of the game to Rodney.

Not sure I like the new guy, but they didn't use him much this episode.

Great episode other then that. If anyone else is a big fantasy football nerd like I am, take the time to pause the DVR while they're showing the draft board. A lot of interesting picks. Ruxson's team is a beast.

Randy Moss went with the last pick of the 5th round as the steal of the draft, I think for an autopick team

Couldn't they just have added the terrible new guy and the wife to make it a 10-team league? An 8-team league is wicked weak (nice that they sort of acknowledged that).

I paused the draft board as soon as they showed it. So fucking awful and ponderous.

Good start to the season. Loved the race to get through airport security and get the first pick:

Ray Rice was taken 10th overall, 2 spots after Larry Fitzgerald. Child please!
