In Case You Missed It

  • Weekend Sports Round-upJoakim Noah whooped on the LBJ and the Heat on Sunday. Lebron was held to 17 points while Joakiiiiim scored 20 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, blocked 5 shots and dropped 7 dimes… Wichita St capped off a 34-0 regular season, downing Indiana St on Sunday… Donald Trump is a jerk. That’s what most of the guys who played in the WGC this weekend think. The Blue Monster is definitely monstrous again. Only three players finished under par, with Patrick Reed winning his third tournament of the wrap-around season. If your golfers finished less than +20, you probably won your GPP.

  • The Weekend GPP Action – In the final qualifier for the DSBBC on Friday night, dinkpiece took down not only the ticket, but 5 of the top 7 spots in the tournament. Day one of the DSBBC kickes off on Wednesday night. On Saturday night, Melo4MVP took down the latest Playboy Qualifier on StarStreet. You may know him better as his alter-ego, Rudy4MVP, or here on RotoGrinders, Troll4MVP.

Today’s Events

  • Podcast Interview with 1curor – Last week FanThrowDown dropped the huge announcement that Condia and 1curor would be joining the site in a consulting role. On today’s podcast, DB welcomes 1curor in an exclusive interview that should shed some more light on the relationship the players will now have with FTD.

  • Tonight’s Action – Seven games on the NBA schedule tonight. The surprisingly over .500 Wizards catch the Heat on a back-to-back tonight, in what may shape up to be one of the better games of the evening. Out west, the Suns visit the Clippers in what will be the game of the night. The NHL has eight games on tap tonight. Crosby and the Penguins head to Washington to play Ovy and the Capitals in a possible playoff preview. Columbus also visits Dallas in a game with big playoff implications.

  • Today’s GPP’s – Tonight on DraftKings, then $109 Showtime is running with a $25k guarantee. Over on StarStreet there are more chances to win a trip to the Playboy Mansion. FanDuel is running a $70,000 Monday Slam with $9000 to first and a $25 buy-in. There’s also a $3500, $25 buy-in NHL Goal as well. DraftStreet is running a $22 buy-in, $10,000 GPP this evening.

About the Author

  • Curtis Brodzina (DillingerFour)

  • Curtis DillingerFour Brodzina considers himself the Dave Barry Rick Reilly of DFS. He tries to find the humorous side of the sports world. An avid Penn State, Broncos and Pens fan, he fades Kunitz way too often. RotoGrinder’s own Cal had these poignant words for him as he was lamenting his last place finish in the RotoGrinders FreeRoll Bowl: “Nobody expects you to win D4, they just expect you to be funny.”
