When it comes to fantasy football we all hear several pieces of advice. Don't draft quarterbacks early as that position is deep. Make sure to get at least one top running back in the first couple of rounds as that pool will dry up quickly. Don't ever take a kicker or defense/special teams until the last few rounds. What about wide receivers?It's no secret that the NFL is a passing league. It seems every rule change over the past 5-10 years has been geared toward the benefit of throwing the ball and Doug Baldwin Jerseys putting points on the board with quick, exciting plays. In fantasy, we are slowly but steadily seeing a switch to point per reception (PPR) leagues. This puts further emphasis on pass catchers early in our drafts. Some also view receivers as safer picks early in drafts because they don't take the hits that running backs do and thus have a better chance at staying healthy over a long season. Throw in the fact that in most leagues you will start three WRs and a possible fourth in the flex position and we can start to understand why the position is so important.Antonio Brown will more than likely be the first WR taken in your league Richard Sherman Jerseys as he is about as steady as they come. There was a time when catching more than 100 balls in a season would raise everyone's eyebrows. Well, Brown has averaged more than 120 receptions over the past four seasons. That's just incredible when Kam Chancellor Jerseys you throw in that over that span he also averaged 11 touchdowns and 1579 yards. Some might want to debate that Odell Beckham Jr. should be picked first Jimmy Graham Jerseys overall but that seems like a reach. While it's true that he's dynamic and a highlight reel waiting to happen, he has only eclipsed 100 receptions once in his career (101 last season) and the addition of Brandon Marshall will give Eli Manning another true Marshawn Lynch Jerseys receiving threat. Mike Evans, Julio Jones, and A.J. Green are also sure to go in the first round of your fantasy draft.

Finbar Wright: A world class tenor PDF Print E-mail

Finbar Wright, tenor, songwriter, and poet, was born in Ballinspittle.

Finbar Wright was born September 26, 1957, in Ballinspittle , County Cork, and raised on a farm in Ballinspittle; part of a large musical family, he began piano lessons at age six. By age 16, he decided his path lay in the priesthood, and was ordained at age 22. Four years later, he finally began his vocal training in earnest, studying at the Cork School of Music. He won several awards at Dublin's prestigious Feis Ceoil singing festival in 1986, and feeling that his commitment to the priesthood had been waning for some time, he left the clergy in 1987 and stepped up his musical studies.

After appearing in Don Giovanni at the Wexford Opera Festival, he turned professional in 1989, giving recitals around Ireland and appearing with several orchestras. Beginning with 1991's Because, Wright released a series of recordings that combined opera and oratorio, Irish ballads, and contemporary pop, and made him progressively more popular in Ireland. In fact, his second album, 1992's Whatever You Believe, topped the Irish charts thanks to the songs' exposure on Music of the Night, the TV show Wright hosted. 1993's live A Tribute to John McCormack, 1995's Lift the Wings, and 1997's I Give My Heart were all successful as well.

He has performed at many historical world events in recent times, including the reading of the Gospel at Pope John Paul II’s legendary first Papal Mass at the Phoenix Park, Dublin, in 1979; the impressive State Dinner given in honour of U.S. President Bill Clinton at Dublin Castle in 1995; and he performed live for ‘Good Morning America’ during its coverage of President Reagan’s funeral on Capitol Hill, Washington in 2004
