DAFL 2011 Champion

9 Jan

Like Kimberly’s relationships…all good things must come to an end. And it is how you end it that makes it even more memorable. YBTY is our XII DAFFY Champion.

A little Biography about our Newest Champion:

Born Henry Armando Giorgio Francoooooo. His main goal in life was to be a doctor so he could save the children of Africa. In High School he ran track and was two time state Javelin thrower. Also was a 3 time Varsity letter in football playing Linebacker at Hopalina High School. He soon realized that he had an inner geek and decided to walk away from his athletic passion to be more like his idol, Bill Gates. Once he made up his mind, he quit the only job that supported his comic book obsession, Pathmark. Within a week he was posting flyers around the area offering technical support to those that needed it. You see, his goal in life may have changed from being a doctor. But he still wanted to help people in a different way. His new goal was to fix sick computers. Within weeks FrancoTechnologies was born. As CEO of the company, Henry managed to fix hundreds of PCs remotely as well as making house calls. His blog peaked at 15k subscriptions.

I met Henry several years back during an interview. Henry was interviewing for the Unix position at IAC and I was fortunate enough to be the hiring manager. His credentials were astonishing and his eagerness was impressive. Here I am interviewing a CEO and founder of FrancoTechnologies.com. With little hesitation we offered him the job and he immediately thanked the man upstairs and got on 1 knee. We labeled all his idiosyncrasies as Henryism. There are 2many stories. This is what it was called before Tebow coined the kneel down.

“You Bet Thank You” was coined one night when Henry was seeking support to resolve a site outage on Evite.com. The technician who resolved the issue reported back to Henry that all is well with the site. Henry thanked him for his assistance and the technician replied, “You Bet Thank You.” Till this day we are unsure if the technician was being a jerk or if he forgot to include a comma b/w bet and thank. The pause mid sentence does make a difference in the overall message. After several weeks had passed, Henry realized that he could no longer work at IAC. Torn about whether or not a comma was missing from that message.

He left the company to be with his new love, Doctor J. Two years and counting….those two are so cute together. Henry also briefly served as Technical Director at FoodPixel.com.

This is Henry’s 2nd year in Fantasy Football. In his first year he won the Toilet Bowl. Please join me in congratulating your newest champion. His name and team will be engraved on the Hubba Bubba Trophy.

A few things to Note:

  • Henry and Balmoris: you will be receiving a letter (detailing the prize money breakdown) and check in the mail. This will take a few days to send out. Letter is written but the checks are not ready yet
  • Efrain, you won $20 for winning the Toilet Bowl. I can send you a check for $20 or you could apply it towards next year’s DAFL fee. I need your mailing address

The commissioners will be meeting during the off-season to implement new changes for the upcoming 2012 season. However, we are still trying to find Kimberly. If you find her, please ask her to contact the headquarters.
