I’ve caught several episodes of this new animated MAD TV show and they’re getting really good at hitting humor right on it’s funny bone. I love the ending!

My Fantasy Football Team for the SPFL.

by on Sep.14, 2011, under Books, Comics, Entertainment, Gaming, Novels, Video Games

So as per my post yesterday, showing off Dan Well’s fantasy football team, I’ve decided to draft my own team in similar style. Afterall if there is only one team in the SPFL (Speculative Fiction Football League) (I would have claimed FFL but I suspect the NFL already has that as their acronym for fantasy football, right?) then Dan’s team would automatically win and we can’t have that, right?

So to be fair, I’ll be picking in a similar style to Dan Well’s choices and I will also not be able to pick any of the choices he has made.

So according to the snippets of football movies and televisions shows I’ve seen, the Coach is the guy who gets pissed off a lot on the side lines while their team sucks and then ultimately gets liquids poured on them when the team manages to come together and win, despite all the odds. I also think they plan the maneuvers the team does on the field, because I remember scenes of coaches pointing at Xs and Os a lot. So I need someone who is a master of strategy, and for flavor, I want someone who stays cool under pressure. First person that comes to mind is The Riddler but having my coach get beat up at half time by some lunatic in a bat costume (who isn’t a mascot!) would be bad press. There is, of course, Original Universe Spock, whose logic would likely benefit the team heavily but I suspect his cool demeanor would work against his ability to motivate the rest of the team. So ultimately my choice is going to have to come from Shikimaru from Naruto. Sure he is a little young to be a coach, but he is a master strategist. Additionally his usually lazy demeanor would keep him from getting overly heated when his team was losing while still motivating him and his ability to control shadows would keep this team from sneaking up behind him to pour liquids over his head.

So as Dan put it, the QB need to throw stuff and be a good field leader. I’ll translate good field leader into is good with tactics. Well the first choice is Waka from Final Fantasy X. Afterall he played in his world’s version of football called Blitz Ball, and his primary combat weapon is throwing a blitz ball at enemies. However I think he might be lacking in the tactics part, since his team kinda sucked until Tidus came along. Another good thrower would be Donkey Kong but I suspect his tactics would be to just throw passes or run the ball himself, which is tactically sound but not always preferable. I don’t want a QB who is predictable. So I will have to go with Link from Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past. Link is a weapon’s expert, well-known for his ability to throw both boomerangs, bombs, rocks, bushes, and even clay pots. In addition the man has saved the kingdom of Hyrule (and various other principalities) from evil multiple times over without a team or coaching, which would suggest excellent tactical capabilities.

Trailer: Thundercats

I was a big fan of Thundercats as a kid. It was a blow to my sanity when the show was moved to a time slot that had it air prior to school getting let out, making it hard for me to catch episodes. Sadly, as an adult, my attempts to rewatch the old cartoon showed me how easily entertained I was as kid. It was not a good show.

The above trailer has me rather excited. The story content appears much improved over the original. The animation is a little blow par for what I like but I have hopes.

This is looking better and better. For one it looks like we’ll be a full intro story, rather than what was introduced in the original pilot. That means they’re updating this for older audiences. I don’t know if you’ve seen the original Thundercats cartoon recently but it is definitely no Exosquad or Reboot. The show very much catered to its younger audience.

This show, on the other hand, might cater to both young and old. Seeing Lion-o in action has me feeling better about his overall character design, although I am still worried about Panthro. Still I am now officially optimistic.

This new show will be airing on Cartoon network sometime soon. Keep your eyes out for it.
