By Jaboner Jackson 12 p.m. With All Photos by Edwin Jimenez | Yesterday, we took a break from our usual NFL in LA coverage to discuss the current lease situation of the St. Louis Rams with Tom Bateman of losangelesrams.org. Tom was gracious enough to leave a T-shirt for Bring Back The LA Rams, which our Human Resources manager, Rochelle M., quickly appropriated for herself. In continuing with our coverage this week of the gentler side of the NFL in LA, our Team Photographer, Edwin Jimenez, snapped a few pictures.
By Jaboner Jackson 12 p.m. With All Photos by Stanton Jack, Team Photographer| Footballphds.com is one big, happy family, and over this weekend, our intelligent and talented Research Assistant, Jessica C., turned twenty-one years old. In typical FOOTBALLPHDS fashion, Rock Mayock, Darryl “Doubletap” Jenkins, and I were all too busy making charts and spreadsheets to fully indulge in the birthday celebrations, but our Team Photographer, Stanton Jack, captured the moment. If our Wonderful Readers are wondering why Dr. Riaz’s Week 12 Fantasy Football Injury Roundup is late this week, it is because Jessica C., who is in charge of the report, is still hung over from her birthday celebrations. This morning, Jessica C. stumbled into the FOOTBALLPHDS office after an extended weekend of celebration and I took the opportunity to catch up with her and offer sage birthday advice.
Guest Post by Alex Goldsmith (alexganga) with all Photos by Stanton Jack and Edwin “EJ” Jimenez, Team Photographers, at 6:15 pm First of all let me give love and thanks to Brothers Rock Mayock and Jaboner Jackson for giving me an opportunity to share my message on their wonderful blog.
By Felipe Trinidad (Webmaster) at 1 P.M. from Las Vegas, NV I got in trouble with Cousin Rock for emailing him and saying that the FOOTBALLPHDS’ female staff is fine. Cousin Rock got angry at me for objectifying them, whatever that means. He wants me to remind everyone that Jessica C. the Research Assistant, Ana V. the Barista, Rochelle M. the Human Resources Manager, and Stephanie P. are intelligent, classy women. I think they would have a good time playing WOW with me and getting ice cream with me on dates. Whatever. Anyway Cousin Rock wanted me to remind everyone that the FOOTBALLPHDS’ staff is the backbone of the website and they make everything smooth for the PHDs. Whatever again. Here is my Bonus Gallery of them. You can play Selena Gomez’s song, “Love You Like A Long Song,” while you flip through the pictures. Hopefully, doing this will make Cousin Jaboner fly me out again so I can see Jessica C. for her birthday next week because she reminds me of a love song. And Cousin Rock wanted me to say that all photos are by the Team Photographers, Stanton Jack and Edwin Jimenez. Whatever again. Give me a camera and let me take some pictures.
By Jaboner Jackson 8 am| The FOOTBALLPHDS Research Assistant, Jessica C., recently came through the offices with her homemade cupcakes. Even though all of the PHDs are on the Paleo and Beer Diet these days, we happily broke our dietary restrictions to partake in moist chocolate cupcakes with butter cream frosting. I caught up with Jessica to pick her brain on the recipe, which she said she stole from Martha Stewart. Enjoy Jessica C.’s interview, recipe as stolen from Martha Stewart, and photo gallery. Unfortunately, our Team Photographer, Stanton Jack, was not around when Jessica C. brought the cupcakes so I had to take the pictures myself, which is not my forte. I promise to leave all photography to Stanton in the future while I stick with the NFL in LA, NFL Stadium Updates, and Financial Projections. If you would like to acquaint yourself with Jessica C.’s prior photo galleries by Stanton Jack, feel free to do so here.
By Jaboner Jackson at 7 am with all photos by Stanton Jack, Team Photographer | Happy Halloween, Wonderful Readers. Today is the right time to don your hunkiest costumes, grab your beat up pillow cases, and stock up on as many Three Musketeers and Snickers candy bars as you can from your neighbors. Or if you’re too old to trick or treat, you can instead enjoy Stanton Jack’s photo gallery of Jessica C., our Research Assistant, as she lounges around the gory, spider web infested FOOTBALLPHDS offices in her Vampire Diaries costume. I am still not sure how our Wonderful Staff managed to decorate our offices so expertly but I suspect that stealing Rock Mayock’s credit card for purchasing the decorations and jacking Darryl “Doubletap” Jenkins’ fog machine had something to do with it. And by the way, the FOOTBALLPHDS’ office Chihuahua, Chloe, snuck into a few of the pictures as well. And, really, can you blame her?
By Felipe Trinidad (Cousin Felipe), Webmaster at 2 A.M. from Las Vegas | Last week, Cousin Jaboner updated the operating system on his iPhone 4 and lost all of his fancy schmancy contacts and emails and pictures and apps and stuff. So whenever Cousin Jaboner and Cousin Rock and Cousin Doubletap have problems with their phones and computers, they suddenly become my best friend. “Hey Cousin Felipe,” they say, “fix my smartphone and email and blah blah blah.” Whatevers. Anyway, Cousin Jaboner flew me out last week from Las Vegas to Los Angeles to fix his iPhone. I even missed my computer classes at my junior college. But I restored all of his fancy schmancy contacts and almost all of his apps. But how did Cousin Jaboner repay me? He pawned me off Cousin Rock. Cousin Rock was abusive like always though and pawned me off on Stanton Jack. But guess what…It was actually a good thing! Stanton is the FOOTBALLPHDS team photographer and he is a lot more fun than Cousins Jaboner and Rock. And the best thing is that Stanton let me hang out with the FOOTBALLPHDS research assistant, Jessica C., too. She is fun too and very nice. So now that Cousin Jaboner has sent me back to my mom’s house in Las Vegas, here is how I conquered Los Angeles with Stanton and Jessica C.
By Jaboner Jackson at 11 am with all photos by Stanton Jack (Team Photographer) | The FOOTBALLPHDS’ Research Assistant, Jessica C., has been busy working with our team medical expert, Hassan A. Riaz, MD, MBA, to keep our Wonderful Readers updated on pertinent fantasy football injuries. I caught up with her this morning over chocolate croissants and espresso (thanks, Ana V!) to discuss football. While some of our Wonderful Readers will undoubtedly jump straight to Stanton Jack’s photo gallery of Jessica C. at the bottom of the post, I recommend that you first familiarize yourself with her thoughts on the AFC West, where her beloved San Diego Chargers are again at the top of the heap.
