Don Wests Daily Fantasy Deals

For those of you not familiar with Don West, he is a former Shop At Home Network pitchman who once kept a legion of drunken 18-30 somethings entertained as they came stumbling back from their local bars at 2am on any given week night. Chances are if you ended up watching Don it was because you struck out at the bar, but the entertainment value of what was appearing on your TV was a tremendous consolation prize.

Don was one of the pioneers behind the sports card and memorabilia boom of the ‘90s. He famously touted his “Gem Mint 10” rookie cards featuring the likes of Ken Griffey Jr and Alex Rodriguez and created such a frenzy that his little show on Shop At Home became must see TV. Amped up to level 11 and turning beat red in the face, DW would scream at the audience to whip out their credit cards and load up on sports cards (and eventually Beanie Babies too) much to the delight of his audience. In fact Don became so popular that he started making appearances on ESPN and even Will Ferrell did a Don West impersonation on Saturday Night Live.

After Shop At Home ran it’s course, Don hosted his own sports radio talk show based out of Nashville and dabbled in professional wrestling as a Color Commentator before settling in Wenatchee, Washington where he is now the Director of Sales and Marketing for the Wenatchee Wild, a Junior A Ice Hockey team in the British Columbia Hockey League. Don is a long-time friend and former co-worker of mine so when I joined RotoGrinders one of the first things I pitched to Dan Back was to create a Don West video.

As DFS players, we are always looking for good values to make our lineups work and who better than Don West to share the best deals with the world. As a long time fan of Don’s, Dan was on board and made the call to do a weekly video during the NFL season. Just something fun to transition us between Grinders Live and Last Call where Don gets to do what he does best, entertain us while sharing the best DFS deals out there.

Don is as pumped to contribute during this football season as we are. “I am so excited to contribute to As a lifelong sports junkie and a fan of all things fantasy sports this was a perfect fit and perfect opportunity for me.” So enjoy guys, let us know your thoughts on the videos and hopefully he can help you all build some better lineups this season!

    He is a hero. Hearing him stumble over Mother’s Cookies Rookie Cards was, and still is, a highlight. I bet I even have a VHS or 2 loaded with random recordings of him…a true stoner staple.
