Fantasy Whaling Team

This morning on NPR's Marketplace, I heard them talking about buying insurance for your fantasy football players. My half-asleep, half-awake brain started working on a fantasy whaling team:
  • Keep the Pequod, a good ship
  • Ditch Ahab, replace him with Tom Izzo
  • Starbuck was good, but Jack Chase from Whitejacket was even better
  • Keep Queequeg, of course, but maybe replace Tashtego with Andreas Thorkildsen, who won the gold for javelin in 2008

  • ...

Oy. My brain.
