I live in the Northwest and today brings us the big solar eclipse. However, the biggest show around here has easily been watching the massive number of traveling people spend countless hours on the freeway, spend three times as much money as usual for everything from food to hotels and scramble around trying to find gas since most every fuel stop is either empty or only pumping for locals. It’s total anarchy here as the thousands continue to trek to all parts of Washington and Oregon in search of something called, “100% totality.” My only hope is the sky isn’t cloudy today because I can only imagine the “sun riot” that could ensue. After all, we’ve already had an “Eclipse Hate Rally” in Portland this week.
With the eclipse clearly on a lot of people’s minds, I can’t help but think of the song, “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” Since I couldn’t get that song out of my head this week (and really wanted to force it upon you as well), I asked the rest of the DLF Team to give me someone who they tend to love a little more than everyone else this year. In short, this would be someone who gives them a “total eclipse of the heart.” This would be a player who they tend to draft earlier than most or trade for in a majority of leagues. In short, these players tend to show up on their rosters in most of their leagues because they tend to “overvalue” them compared to other dynasty league owners. There were some themes out there that came up. My thought was the faithful readers of DLF may want to see some commentary about this group of players and consider if they’re perhaps a little too down on them.
If you don’t know the song, please feel free to review below – there you’ll find one of the strangest music videos in history. It looks like a combination of a love song, Mad Max, Poltergeist and a weird type of rave…much like the scene in some people’s yards and basements in the Northwest today. Pray for us, people.
