And now on to the RF Girl Standings.  Congratulations to Lady Resin in 174th place, who continues to be our highest member of the RF Chick Group, and the highest ranked of the buddays who we know! Holly in St Pete leaped over a bunch of people to  281st place and is not too far behind Lady Resin.  JohnnieRoxxx  is tied with the Lady at 281st place as well.

Kim From Tampa is hanging out at an impressive 481st place, so she dropped a few, but not a lot.   We haven’t heard from Nico since his trip out west, but he must be still alive because he’s hanging at a respectable 647th place.

Kathleen from the Bx continues her meteoric rise this week from a rough start and now finds herself in 856th place. (up from last week’s 1231)

Our buddays GVAC and ADF both dropped a bit to 1057th place this week, and joining them is the Daily Lleeder.

Bunny Kick Butt and Gregg from Buffalo are both hanging in 1263rd place, SteelerGirl07, HTG and Gaz have had a small recovery up to 1415th place and Kim Libonati, KFC, Gbaby, Showerbench, Lilly, Lady Trucker and Mongo the Trucker are all biding time at 1534.

Finally, at the bottom of our buddayranks, are Franklyn with 1637, and Girl Hicks (who forgot to pick this week) and Rorschach in 1753rd place.

Lots of rank changes this week, you can still move far ahead or behind!

In the Eliminator Pool we started with 3664 people playing, and dropped down to 1961 survivors after week one.  After week two ended we are left with only 1576 players.  After week three, 1299 of you lived to pick another day.  And this week, we lost just under 250 people leaving us with 1057 eligible players.

All of our girls who were around last week are still standing! HUGE congrats to Bunny Kick Butt,  Steelers Girl 07, Lilly, Jennifer Hutt, Kim Libonati, MomsforOpie and Kim from Tampa, you all made it another week!  If I missed any of the girls let us know @202friends.

Some of our other buddays who survived again  are , Traveling Nico, Leeder, Rustin, Kevin From Ct,  Greg from Buffalo and GVAC.  Did we lose Gaz?

Ron and Fez Sports Book Week in Review: Week 3

In the Pickem League, its a 5-way tie for first place this week!  Both of last weeks board-leaders have been knocked out of first place clearing room for:

  • JETILLINGHAST
  • DANNY NOONAN ALLSTARS
  • GILLETTE SILVER
  • BRABERS BASHERS and
  • JAGSFANS**

Another 13 of our big pickers are rounding out the top 19 this week.  Congratulations to zoltt, stand alone fruit, jawzilla111**, dbc225, Inlet_Insanity**, VinhoTinto**, brandondeniro, brendanwilde*** (who was in first place last week), mikeymoore, MikeGrim78, coughlin74M, Pekerhicks and milescity.

Starred players have been in our Top Performers Report for two or three weeks! These are the guys to beat!

And now for the RF Girl Standings.  Congratulations to Lady Resin and Kim from Tampa who top our girl budday list ranking 239th place!!  JohnnieRoxxx has made a huge comeback and is tied with the girls as the highest ranking person we know.

Holly in St Pete and Bunnykickbutt are next in our rankings, landing at 437 and tied along with them, is NothingSpecialJustNico.  Glad to see you didnt forget to make your picks in all of the trip excitement.

Our buddays GVAC and ADF came in 958th place this week.

And our most improved budday of the week goes to Kathleen From the Bronx who shot up to a very respectable 1231st place this week.  Keeping her company at 1231 are Gbaby, Uncle Glenn,  and the daily lleeder.

A bit lower down, Steelers Girl 07, Lady Trucker and Lilly are tied in 1468th place, and HTG has sunk to a so-so 1651st place.   We don’t know what happened to Gaz who now finds himself ranked 1797th.

Kim Libonati and Girl Hicks are at the bottom of the buddaygirl group with 1891st and 1960th Place, but they’re not the lowest of our friends.  We find Pat From Moonachie (2018th), Intern Rustin (is that really you drafthouse kid?) and Rorschach (2133st) ranked down amongst people who forgot to pick this week.

Its still very early in the season and a few moves can send you up the charts or dropping like an anvil so pick carefully, and good luck next week!

In the Eliminator Pool we started with 3664 people playing, and dropped down to 1961 survivors after week one.  After week two ended we are left with only 1576 players.  This week we lost only 277 players, which means 1299 of you have lived to pick another day.  Pittsburgh and New England upsets claimed most of our casualties this week.

Here are the girls who are still standing.  Congrats to Bunny Kick Butt,  Steelers Girl 07, Lilly, Jennifer Hutt, Kim Libonati, MomsforOpie and Kim from Tampa, you all made it another week!  If I missed any of the girls let us know @202friends.

Some of our other buddays who survived again  are Cincinnati Gazzy, Traveling Nico, Leeder, Rustin and GVAC. I guess we lost  Goodbye Darren and Eastside Llama this week.

Congratulations to you all and everyone else who made it through week three.

In the Ron and Fez Show Fantasy Football League here are the results from Week 2:

HTG’s Running Wolfpack beat out Chris Stanley’s Newfoundland Ritts.

Ron and Fez Sports Week in Review: Week 2

In the Pickem League, we have 2 players tied for first place with a total of 27 correct picks! Congratulations to our current board leaders:

  • BrendanWilde and
  • tlicious1313

Two of  last weeks leaders– BizzarroMason and MT Trucker have already dropped down to third place,and are tied with jawzilla111,  FuchuBH, Pelligrino San, Vinho Tinto, Long Island Duxxxx, PeterAhh, jetillinghast, hapharrisillini, sdaly08, HomerAngle, Schwantoes, Punisher17, jagfans, and patmegroinhiggins.  Our third placers all have a total of 26 wins.

That means a lot of last weeks top players have slid down to the lower ranks.  Where’d you guys go?  We seem to have lost Dee from GA off the map, or maybe I just couldn’t find her in the rankings, but I’m sure she’ll be back with a vengeance next week.

And now for the RF Girl Standings.  Congratulations to Kim from Tampa and Bunny Kick Butt who lead our chick roster at a very impressive 468th place!  Way to go girls!!!   None of the men we’ve been tracking made it that far, but Rorschach, ADF , GVAC, and Showerbench made it to a very respectful 828th place.

Last week, Lilly leads the girl pack  with 11 correct picks, and was tied for 131st place.  This week, she dropped down a bit to 1230th place, but she’s in good company with SteelerGirl07, Krisko, and HTG.  Hanging out with those girls in 1230th place was also our buddy Germain Lussier.

Slightly lower down the ladder, and tied for 1608th place is Carla Finch! And congrats also to Gaz  and Daily Lleeder for showing up there in the top 50%.

Our beloved leader of the tits division, Kathleen from the Bronx and Lady Trucker scored a spot in 1894th place, and Kim Libonati and Girl Hicks round out the girls league with in 2268th place this week.

A tremendous congratulation to our most improved player this week– Franklyn of Cypher films who went from 2758th place all the way up to 2345th place, and climbing.  Good luck next week!

In the Eliminator Pool we started with 3664 people playing, and dropped down to 1961 survivors after week one.  After week two ended we are left with only 1576 players.  Most of our nearly 400 losses this week, including our own Pepper Hicks were due to a surprising upset with Baltimore losing to the Titans.

A lot of the girls are still standing.  Congrats to Bunny Kick Butt,  Steelers Girl 07, Lilly, Jennifer Hutt, Kim Libonati, MomsforOpie and Kim from Tampa.  If I missed any of the girls let us know @202friends.

Some of our other buddays who survived Week One are Cincinnati Gazzy, Goodbye Darren, Eastside Llama, Traveling Nico, Leeder, and GVAC. Congratulations to you all and everyone else who made it through week one.

  • Dee From GA,
  • Bizzarro Mason and
  • MT Trucker.

These are going to be the people to beat.  But most of you are only a game or two behind so things can change quickly.

Holly in St Pete has 8 correct, putting her in 1777th place, tying Gbaby, Roarshach and Pat From Moonachie.

Kathleen from the Bronx and Kim Libonati are bringing up the bottom end, with 7 and 6 correct picks, but we’re not worried.  We know that Tits will rise again, and we’ll be watching for her.  Here’s the good news, you’re at least beating Franklyn who had only 2 picks, putting him in 2758th place.  Way to go Franklyn!  

In the Eliminator Pool we started with 3664 people playing, and after a few key upsets (Kansas City, Cleveland, and the New York Giants), we say goodbye to almost half our players; leaving us with only 1961 survivors.

We lost HTG, the leader of the girls group this week but a lot of the girls are still standing.  Congrats to Roe from Long Island, Bunny Kick Butt, Carla Finch, Lilly, Jennifer Hutt, SuzesMuse, Keemers, LillyvonSchtupp, Kim Libonati and Kim from Tampa.  If I missed any of the girls let us know @202friends.  

Some of our other buddays who survived Week One are Cincinnati Gazzy, Tall James, Goodbye Darren, Eastside Llama, East Side Dave, Traveling Nico, Leeder, GVAC and Mongo the Trucker.  Congratulations to you all and everyone else who made it through week one.

In the Ron and Fez Show Fantasy Football League here are the results from Week 1:

Fez’s Fun Pirates beat the Chris Stanley’s Newfoundland Rits

Ron Bennington Interviews: 09/04/11

This week on Ron Bennington Interviews, join Ron as he has conversations with five amazing guests– two great musicians, a prominent journalist, a brilliant actor, and a  young comic with a terminal illness determined to make his dreams come true– all airing on Stars Too this Sunday, September 4, 2011.

First, Ron gets surprised when one of our greatest living actors stops by to talk.  Don’t miss this incredible interview with the always brilliant Robert Duvall.  If you haven’t seen the long list of incredible Robert Duvall films, put that on your to-do list.  Here’s some just for starters- The Godfather 1 & 2, The Apostle, Lonesome Dove, The Great Santini, Get Low, Apocalypse Now, Tender Mercies, To Kill a Mockingbird, Colors, Mash, True Grit, and tha’t’s just for starters.  He came in to talk about his newest film, out this weekend, 7 Days in Utopia.

Next Ron sits down with Tom Morello– who is not only an innovative and gifted musician (named one of Rolling Stone’s 100 top guitarists of all time) but also a singer, songwriter, and well known activist.  You know him of course as the lead guitarist from the group Rage Against the Machine, the lead guitarist of Audioslave, and now for his solo acoustic work as The Nightwatchman.  He comes in to talk with Ron about his newest album- World Wide Rebel Songs, which features the soon to be smash hit, Black Spartacus Suicide Machine.

Next, we play an interview with Perry Farrell, frontman for two great alt rock bands, Jane’s Addiction, and Porno for Pyros.  Perry stopped by to talk about the formation of his newest band, Satellite Party, and their debut CD, Ultra Payloaded.

We’re also playing an interview Ron did with journalist, radio show host and author Lou Dobbs, who anchored CNN’s Lou Dobbs Moneyline and Lou Dobbs Tonight for nearly a decade before moving the show to the Fox Business Network in 2009.   Lou stopped by to talk about the release of his fourth book, War on the Middle Class.

Finally, Ron talked with Steve Mazan, a young comic.  When Steve found out that he had cancer and might only have five years to live, he dedicated his life to reaching a childhood goal:  to perform stand up comedy on David Letterman’s show.  He came in to talk to Ron about his journey as well as the release of a new film documenting his story– Dying to Do Letterman.

Make sure you don’t miss this episode.  Ron Bennington Interviews airs this Sunday, September 4, 2011 on Stars Too on Sirius XM 104.  The show begins at 2pm in the east until 5pm.  A shortened version of Ron Bennington Interviews will also air on the Virus Channel on Sunday Night along with an episode of Unmasked.
