Sweetbob’s Hipster Music Playlist: September 2016

weird odd hipster america's white boy music playlist september vinyl record player 2016We wanted to thank our readers by SUPER-SIZING this month’s Hipster Music Playlist. Instead of the usual 20 tracks, we added an extra five more. We just found a lot of awesome music this month and instead of holding over a bunch of songs for October, we decided to add them to this month’s playlist.

I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter. I love checking out all the recommendations you send. Keep them comin’!

I feel like this month’s list is great. Make sure to go over to our Spotify playlist where we add every track each month. There’s something for everyone there.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Tight Ends

Rob Gronkowski 2016 top 50 tight ends fantasy football rankings nfl funny catsA tight end can be a quarterback’s best friend. They aren’t usually very high in their progressions, but can easily become a crutch when a quarterback is pressured…especially if you have a running back with bricks for hands.

I look at tight ends like a power forwards in basketball. They are large men who often have some sort of athleticism or size advantage. In a perfect situation, like Rob Gronkowski in New England, he has an advantage on every play.

More teams are using athletic, pass-catching tight ends in an attempt to duplicate New England’s success…which is great for fantasy football players.

We rank the top 50 tight ends for the 2016 fantasy football season. It’s a bit overkill, but just in case you’re in a two-tight end leagues.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 75 Wide Receivers

antonio brown funny pittsburgh steelers top 75 fantasy football fantasy rankings 2016I don’t know if you’ve read the memo, but the NFL is a passing league. It has been a passing league for quite awhile and wide receivers have been slowly creeping up higher and higher in fantasy football drafts.

Calvin Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald were once the only two wide receivers, for quite awhile, that a fantasy owner would even consider drafting in the first round. A lot has changed.

If you go by most fantasy mock drafts, wide receivers dominate the first round. Many drafts even have the first four picks dedicated to wide receivers. Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown will be the number #1 overall pick in nearly every fantasy draft this season. The position is quite top-heavy, yet deep.

Here is our top 75 wide receiver rankings for fantasy football in 2016.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Running Backs

funny todd gurley los angeles rams nfl 2016 fantasy football rankings running backsIt’s hard to believe that in just a few short weeks, it will officially be acceptable to wear hoodies in public. I love hoodies, but there’s something freakish about seeing a guy in July wearing one.

The running back position isn’t as deep as quarterback, but you should be able to find some good value late in the draft…but if you want a ‘workhorse’ running back, the pickings are slim.

Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles has been at the top of fantasy rankings the last handful of years. There are a few new names near the top this season, with one second-year running back sitting atop our rankings this season.

Here are our top 50 running backs for the 2016 fantasy football season.

2016 Fantasy Football Rankings – Top 50 Quarterbacks

cam newton hat outfit clothes america's white boy top 50 fantasy quaterbacks nfl 2016People are starting to schedule banquet halls and/or reserve a larger orders of buffalo wings at your local bar in hopes of having the best fantasy football draft of all-time. Others opt to draft online and enjoy the festivities in their boxers.

Both are awesome, but I enjoy buffalo wings a little more than being anti-social.

The quarterback position is extremely deep in fantasy football this season. If you are in a ten-team league, I predict that every team could have a legit #1 quarterback. That hasn’t been the case in many years. There’s always a team or two that ends up with what should be a fantasy backup as their starting QB.

We rank the top 50 quarterbacks and split hairs when deciding spots 40 thru 50.

America’s White Boy’s 2016 MLB Un-All-Star Team

pablo sandoval boston red sox fat funny america's white boy 2016 MLB Un-All-Star TeamIt has become a yearly tradition that we look at all the former MLB All-Stars that aren’t having very good years.

The season is a little more than half over and it’s not too late for some of these players to bounce back and turn their seasons around. You can look at our Un-All-Star team article last year, many bounced back and finished strong.

Since I’m an active fantasy baseball owner, it didn’t take me long to make this list. A few of these guys were on my teams early this season, but were quickly dropped. I spent most of my time just baffled that some of these guys were actually All-Stars at one point.

The old benchmark for an All-Star was thrown out with the bathwater when Bud Selig decided each team must have at least one representative in the All-Star Game.

Here is America’s White Boy‘s 2016 MLB Un-All-Star team.

Former Mets Pitcher Plans to Sue MLB

jenrry-mejia-mlb-philadelphia-phillies-new-york-mets-1Major League Baseball’s drug testing program is considered one of the best in professional sports, and the punishment for failed drug tests have been severe. Since the implementation of the program, there have been fewer failed drug tests in the league because players don’t want to risk getting suspended for a season. While home run numbers are down, the game is still exciting and baseball betting lines haven’t been affected.

When the program started, there were some skeptics of the program who felt the only players that would be suspended for a long time were the marginal players that don’t have much of an impact on the team.

Broken Matt Hardy May Have Just Saved ‘Impact Wrestling’

final deletion broken matt hardy impact wrestling tna maxel funnyI know what you’re thinking, TNA is still relevant? Well, they haven’t been in quite some time. I’m a huge wrestling fan and I’m still guilty of just reading spoilers to avoid wasting two hours every week.

Something special has been happening on TNA’s “Impact Wrestling” over the last two months. It involves two wrestlers even casual wrestling fans are familiar with, The Hardy Boyz.

Before I explain what happened on last night’s episode of “Impact Wrestling”, I need to explain how this ‘Broken Matt Hardy’ storyline started.

Matt Hardy was the TNA Heavyweight champion earlier this year, but lost it in a match with Drew Galloway. He lost a rematch and he went to feud with his brother Jeff. They had an ‘I Quit’ match in which both were knocked out and Matt was taken to the hospital…this is when Matt Hardy became broken.
